Killer Killbox Contest

So I did some checking… and it turns out that what people want from me is my books. Huh, who knew? I was gonna give away some spray-on hair, a Slanket and an Abdominator, but this makes me rethink my whole marketing plan.

To that end, here’s what you can win this time:

grimspace 10 copies

wanderlust 5 copies

doubleblind 3 copies

That’s a total of 18 winners, right there. 1 person per book. Enter as many times as you like, so long as you’re promoting Killbox with each entry. killbox

*email someone about KILLBOX = 1 entry
*post about KILLBOX on your blog = 2 entries
*do a 5 question mini-interview with me on your blog or site= 5 entries
*make a facebook widget = 3 entries
*tweet about KILLBOX = 1 entry per 100 followers
* other social media= 1 entry
*post cover art somewhere online = 1 entry

Do everything you care to and then tally your entries and post that number in comments. Tell me what you did to earn those entries please.

But wait, there’s more! The grand prize winner will have a character named after them in the fifth Jax book, Aftermath. All winners announced on August 31. Prizes must be claimed within one week. I will not be re-drawing. Thanks for playing, everyone!

ETA: winners… everyone wins! Anyone who commented before August 31 gets the Jax book of his or her choice (no, not Killbox). Just email me the title you want and your address. Grand prize winner = Ashley. Look for your character in Aftermath!

Congrats to all.

    Would love to win Killbox to add to the other three on my shelf, but will just wait until I can buy it myself :D

    Knowing my luck I would win one I already have so I won’t bother entering :D

    how does one go about doing a mini interview with you?

  3. Vickie B says:

    Would love to do a 5 question mini-interview with you. If interested, stop by my blog http://iyamvixenbooks.blogspot.com/ to see if it works for you and then email you VWinship at aol dot com to let me know if you are interested and how we go from there.
    Thanks for this opportunity!

    Okie dokie, I have begun the process of winning a book!! Hopefully winning a book…

  5. Ann Aguirre says:

    To do the mini-interview, simply email me your five questions. I’ll get them back to you and then you can post it on your site / blog before Aug 31. Simple!

  6. erin says:

    as I am still in the dark ages, w/ no twitter, facebook or personal website, I have been telling everyone who will listen about your wonderful series!

    I just e-mailed 5 people w/ reminders about the new book and directions to your website and blog. So far I have had 2 replies (“WE KNOW!”) and a request to borrow my copy :)

    Counting down…

  7. erin says:

    as I already own all the books in your series (and waiting on Killbox!) please don’t enter me to win the books… I want someone who hasn’t read them to get them. But I would love to have a character named after me :) Good luck everyone!!!

    Emailed two people. +2
    Posted the picture on facebook.+1
    Posted the picture on deviant art and talked about it. +1
    Mentioned on Gaia. +1

    I do not have a blog, but could I do the interview for my deviant art? If so, how would I go about doing an interview?

  9. Lauren says:

    Not sure if this counts, but I told my English professor about Killbox as well as a number of my friends.

  10. blodeuedd says:

    I twittered about thsi contest as blodeuedd83 :)

  11. JessaW says:

    I do not do the Facebook and Twitter things either. But I have e-mailed 5 people and have recommended to many others by word of mouth about Killbox (and your books in general). Thank you!

  12. Ina S. says:

    I told my best friends per email +2
    talked about it at other social media +1 http://www.vampire-multigaming.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11692&highlight=
    posted the cover art somewhere online +1 http://www.vampire-multigaming.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11692&highlight=

    greetings, Ina

  13. Ina S. says:

    *argh* forgot to tally up my entries – sorry… the total number is 4

  14. Lauren says:

    Told a couple of more friends about it. +1

    With the other non-tallied entries from my previous comments, I think that makes seven. If telling people word of mouth counts, if not five.

  15. Ashley says:

    Now that I’m confident I have driven all of my friends up a wall and that my inlaws have disowned me for sending them all the same email.

    All right I have 98 entries from emails. I don’t joke about that at all. I just spent 5 hours going through my facebook friends and pulling the emails of people I know would be interested in the series and the new book and some that wouldn’t but I knew wouldn’t mind my email!

    I also made a widget on my FB and did a status update about the book for another 4

    So my total is 102. :)

  16. Ann Aguirre says:

    Holy cow, Ashley, you don’t play! Maybe I’ll pick the grand prize winner according to most entries…

  17. Ashley says:

    If that’s the case, Ma’am, I’m prepared to do more work! LOL!

    I adore your books so much I wouldn’t be able to help myself! :)

  18. Lauren says:

    Oh man, sad day if you picked based on entries. I just can’t keep up with that! Good on you Ashley.

  19. Fedora says:

    Wow, Ashley, you’re putting us all to shame! ;)

    So far I’ve posted on a PBS thread here:
    http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=214080

    I’ve been recommending your books in general, but need to do Killbox in particular :)

    Really looking forward to this!

  20. Lauren says:

    Just got Killbox today at the local BaM, friends have heard repeatedly.

  21. erin says:

    Major squeeee! Got my copy of Killbox yesterday. Am rereading the series (like I always do) and can’t wait! Thanks soo much Ann! You’re a talented and wonderful author and thank god you don’t put out a new release every week cuz I would be broke! But then again, I’d be in heaven… :)

  22. Ina S. says:

    oh wow, thanks so much – and congrats to the other winners :)

  23. Ashley says:
