Hey gang! I'm so thrilled to get the chance to promote the amazing Kendare Blake as well as her amazing quartet of books, Three Dark Crowns! So at long last, here are the details of the party! I have to show off the promo pics that I made because I'm super proud of them. :-)
Just a couple of reminders for the party:
1. You should have a twitter account.
2. You should be following me @CAhnBooks and @KendareBlake to be 1) eligible for prizes, 2) ensure that I see your tweets and that I can contact you with prize information. We will confirm this so make sure you do this!!!
3. After each comment, you should end it with #OneDarkThrone or else I won't see it. The EASIEST way to follow a twitter party is to hook up your account to a chat program. I use http://tweetchat.com All you have to do is put #OneDarkThrone at the top of the page where it says "Enter hashtags." Then you should be good to go! The other nice thing about this is that you don't have to type the hashtag after each comment, the program automatically does it for you. And you don't have to search for the hashtag, it automatically just follows the convo.
4. For some of the prizes, I'll be selecting winners RANDOMLY throughout the party, so the more you participate and the LONGER you participate, the more likely you are to win a prize.
5. Retweets will NOT count towards a prize. But these are nice to do for your fellow tweeters if you like what they are saying.
6. PRIZES: You can only win one book prize, but possibly you could win a book + swag. There will be 2 categories you can win prizes in: random or the contest prize. However, you can only win prizes that ship to you (US versus INT). Kendare is generously giving away some UK editions of Three Dark Crowns and some anthologies (1 book INT, the rest US only). She is also giving away a few signed bookplates (INT).
7. PRIZE form: There will be a Google document I will direct you to if you have won a prize. You will select which prize you have won, and this will be checked so be honest!! Just follow the instructions so that you will get your prize. Kendare nor I are responsible for prizes lost in the mail (we will just feel very very bad if it happens!).
8. Contest: There will be one INT contest in the last part of the party. You will need to include #contest along with #OneDarkThrone so that I see it.
9. To those poor souls who don't have a twitter account. It's totally EASY. Get a twitter account! I finally got one for my blog, and it took literally seconds to set up. I'm so sorry, but if you don't have a twitter account, you won't be eligible for the prizes.
