ANNOUNCEMENT // author website, newsletter + CELEBRATION GIVEAWAY

In case you missed the title:

TODAY I'M LAUNCHING AN AUTHOR WEBSITE.

MY WEBSITE.


*screams into the abyss*



I spent aaaages trying to work out what in the world to write in a blog post about a new website, but in the end I'm just going to wing it completely.

So without further adobehold the website:



Now if anyone actually hangs around this blog post any longer, THERE'S STILL MORE.

I'm starting a monthly newsletter. (*more screaming*) You can sign up for it on my website 'contact' page or the sidebar of the blog (the website blog, not this one). So basically just head on over there right now and check it all out.

This post is going to be fairly brief because I don't want to bore you and repeat myself. I have more details on the post I did on the website. (I suggest you read that one too because it covers some important details that I've probably completely forgotten to say in this one. xD)

BUT THE GIVEAWAY!!! I'm giving away the winner's choice of Heartless (Tales of Goldstone Wood #1, Anne Elisabeth Stengl) or A Wish Made of Glass (Ashlee Willis). Both of these book are five-stars from me (though some later ones of the Tales of Goldstone Wood are even better—looking right at you, Veiled Rose) and I hugely enjoyed them.
If you already have BOTH of these books, ENTER ANYWAYS. If you win I'll email you and, depending on costs, maybe we can work out another book. *fingerguns* IT'LL BE EPIC, 'KAY? JUST DO IT.

This giveaway is open internationally. And yes, it'll be in paperback copy for the winner.

You excited yet?? (If you're not, shhh don't ruin my dream :P) Here's your entry tasks!!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

I'M JUST SO SO EXCITED GUYS. *flails*


But Jane—does this mean your mistymaiden.blogspot blog is going to be...abandoned???

I'm sorry to say, folks, but yes. This blog will drift into silence, but I am absolutely not going silent myself. I have a blog on the website which you can all stalk (or follow, if you're civilized xP) and I'll be posting weekly still. AND if you've tagged me for something or other, HAVE NO FEAR. I will still do it. It's just been carried over from this blog to the other, so you'll have to look there for when I'll do the post.

You guys are all epic. Thank you for hanging around here. Every single person who reads this blog (even if you've never commented!) really means sooo much to me. *group hug*

NOW GO. Complete your tasks and enter the giveaway. Have fun. :D (Also, I promise that I'm not all scary and official now. I'm still exactly the same as I was before. :P)


Have you read Heartless or A Wish Made of Glass?
Which would you choose to have sitting on your shelf?

      Yay thank you!!

  11. Also question - do I have to put seven friends' names after the seven days?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It works better if you put in a name every day (if you do it every day), but if you can't, you /could/ just put in the seven names on the last day. *nods*
