150 Followers Contest (and ARC winners)

Contest Closed. Winners posted here.

I have just tonight reached 150 followers. Woot! I am so excited. Now, I can give away two books that I've been holding onto for just the right time: THE HUNGER GAMES and CATCHING FIRE. In addition to these two books, I have mockingjay pins, keychains and more. One winner will get books, and three others will get pins!

This contest is open to US only. You must be a follower of my blog. Please leave a way for me to contact you. Email, Twitter name... either works. Contest open until August 24, 10:00 PM EST.

Want extra entries?

+5 blog post about giveaway
+3 post in blog sidebar
+4 follow on Twitter (@AineFey)
+2 per tweet up to five
+1 for being Rather Lovely (username)

Must lease username or link to receive the extra points.

An added bonus... though I can't make any promises... I'm planning on meeting the fabulous Suzanne Collins this September at the DC Book Festival. If you win and would like your books signed (and personalized), I will do my best. However, you'll have to wait about a month after the contest ends to get them. It's completely up to you.

If I can reach 200 followers by August 24, I'll also give away MOCKINGJAY.

And now for the winners of my last contest. ARCs will go to: donnas, kimscarecrow, Crazy for words, and Alia. I'll be sending out emails tonight. Congrats to all!

It sounds as though "Rather Lovely" is a specific person, so no point for that, right?

I will come back here later to add more tweets! And maybe a blog post when I've more time.

One request: I already own The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, so it'd be a waste to give them to me. If I'm lucky enough to win, may I request one of the mockingjay pins? I saw a picture of one on another blog, and they are SO pretty. :-)

Here's my contact email: anthy_stl [ATT] yahoo [DOTT] com

Thank you again!

If you win, you can just have a pen, and if I get high enough, you can request just the MOCKINGJAY book. Winners always have the option of passing on something or the entire contest. So no worries.

Re: Rather Lovely

If you know what it is, you know what it is. If you don't, then no point. It's something special I do for members of a specific group. :)

I feel like I'm the only one not reading these books lately! Twitter or a PM on the Rath is the best way to get me.
