New and Improved: 50 Followers Contest

Since that last post was so lengthy, I've decided to re-post the contest here on it's own. In the name of new author promotion AND in celebration of my blog reaching 50 followers, I am having a little trivia contest. There will be two prizes: one a maple syrup-themed gift box in honor of Andrea Pearson's magical elixer in her new book, THE KEY OF KILENYA, out this July;

and the other a cherry-themed gift box, in honor of my book, THE ORCHARD, each chosen randomly. They will be delicious! The contest will run until midnight, Saturday, June 12. I have also simplified the requirements to enter (because I'm new at this and went a little crazy). Here is what you need to do to win one of these fantastic prizes:
  1. Leave a meaningful comment to let me know you were here. 1 point
  2. Tweet or Facebook this contest and let me know in a comment. 1 point
  3. Send me the answer to the following silly questions in an email at kristalynnej at yahoo dot com. 2 points
a)What kind of fruit grows in the orchard in Krista's novel?
b)What must Andrea's hero retrieve to save those he loves? (see my interview of Andrea here)
c)What is Krista's made up pen name? (See her interview of me here)
d)Why doesn't Andrea speak Canadian, eh?

EXTRA TWITTER BONUS POINT: What is Krista's husband's pen name for her? #answeronKristasTwitterProfilepage 

Congratulations to Melissa Nielsen, who was my 50th follower! Thanks, Melissa. You get a bonus point in the contest and your name indelibly emblazoned in my memory forever. Yay!

"A world without maple syrup is like a world without Canada--a little sadder, a little smaller and whole lot meaner." You can quote me on that.
(Was that meaningful enough to count?!)

ps My word verification was "afful"--should I take that as a commentary on my philosophical musings?

Krista said...

Thanks, Sarah! Love the quote... you are so wise, and not afful at all.

M. Gray said...

afful really should be the original spelling. Latin, quite possibly Greek.

Fifty followers yay!! Woot woot!

I'm stumped by the "meaningful" comment criteria...sorry I've got nothing. But happy fifty!

I'm at 49 followers and have been debating whether to do something like this. Food themed prizes are a yummy idea. *goes in search of treats*

Thanks for the Twitter Follow! :)

It's refreshing to find new blogs, and one's that aren't geared towards babies & moms. I have a tween, and I'm not having anymore babies.
