Winner's Post

We've had a ton of giveaways ending in the first few days of November and I wanted to post the winners and do a little tutorial on how to post links in the form. I know several of you have had some problems with that.

Posting Links to Facebook

You must have a facebook account. 

All you have to do is say something like this on your status: Here's your chance to win one copy of Temptation and Twilight at Debbie's Book Bag and post the link that is in the address bar when you click on the giveaway post. 

Then when you are filing out the giveaway form, in the spot where it asked if you got the word out about the giveaway, post the link that is in the address bar after you posted your status on facebook.

Posting Links to your Blog:

This one is very easy for those of you who have a blog. You just have to create a post about the giveaway for your blog. 

Then when you are filing out the giveaway form, in the spot where it asked if you got the word out about the giveaway, post the link that is in the address bar from the post you put on your blog.

Posting Links to Twitter:

This one is slightly more difficult, but not much.

You must have a twitter account.

When you are posting you status to twitter, Put something like this: Temptation and Twilight giveaway and then post the giveaway link that appears in the address bar when you are entering the giveaway. 

After you post your status on twitter with the giveaway information, right under your status is a link that says the time when you last posted, like 1 minute ago or something, click on that link and it will take you to your profile and show the link you need to put in the form in the address bar.

Then when you are filling out the giveaway form, where it asks if you got the word out about the giveaway post that link that was in the address bar.

I know all of this sounds a little difficult for those of you who are unfamiliar with how to do it. If you have any more problems please let me know. The reason I give 25 pts. for getting the word out is simple, it drives new traffic to my blog and the more people I have enter giveaways shows the publishers that people are viewing the blog and making comments, which allows me to add even more giveaways. 
I have decided to cut it down to 10 pts per facebook, twitter and blog posting in order to level the playing field for those readers who do not post on these sites. I do want you to know that winners are chosen by random number and though, those who post other places have a better chance of winning, I have winners each time from those who post and those who don't.

I hope this has answered your questions. If not please feel free to e-mail me and I will help you in any way I can.

Now, on to the winners! (Two of these winners did not post the giveaway anywhere online)

Winners will be notified later today and names and addresses sent to the publishers tomorrow.
