Sound the alarms, or the trumpets or...I don't know do something loud and obnoxious! I have no idea how it's happened but I've hit the 100 follower mark! 103 to be precise! How about that?
So to thank you all for bearing with me while I tried to find my feet in the blogging world I've organised a wee little giveaway for you to enter. Now since I'm a struggling uni student it's a rather humble giveaway and comes direct from my bookshelf but I think the titles I've chosen are pretty amazing and they're all in brand new condition so all in all, not too shabby!
What are the books I'm planning to hand over to you, dear readers? Well they're three books from three of my absolute favourite authors and lucky for you happen to be books that Tom and I had duplicates of when we consolidated our libraries earlier this year.
1. The Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs by Irvine Welsh
If you've read my reviews for Trainspotting and it's sequel Porno you'll know this author is a favourite of mine. This particular book is deliciously dark and humorous and filled with Welsh's strong and interesting Scottish characters and commentary on aspects of current society and popular culture.
2. Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist
An absolutely stunning tale of youth, love, relationships and vampires. Everything Twilight isn't and should have been. Stunning characters, superb settings and an outstanding story - a favourite of mine, I read it in one night, refusing to put it down!
3. Freakangels (volume one) by Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield
If you want to read me wax lyrical about the amazing-ness of this series you can read my review post (read: love letter) here. This is the first volume of one of Warren Ellis' longest running graphic novel series and an amazing mix of dystopia, relationships, shockingly good writing and mind-boggling illustrations.
So now you know the prizes, I guess I should lay down the guidelines. It's pretty simple.
-Open to all followers of Nylon Admiral, old and new.
-Open from now(22/7/2011) until next midnight Friday (29/7/2011) -my time (Brisbane, Australia)
-Each book goes to a separate entrant, I want to share the love around as much as possible!
-To enter all you have to do is fill in this form!
The rules are as follows:
-One entry per person, and you must be a follower of this blog. (Yes you can become a follower in order to enter the contest)
-Anyone wishing to enter the contest has to fill out the form attached to this post.
-You must provide your email in the form, but rest assured I won't be passing it on to anyone else and unless I use it to contact you about winning a prize I'll delete it once the contest is over.
-In the form make sure you list the books from 1 (first choice) to 3 (third choice) so I know which one you covet!
-The winners will be picked via a random generator and contacted via email within 48 hours of the contest ending.
-Once the emails have been sent out I'll give you 48 hours to respond, if I don't hear from you I'll send another email and wait another 24 hours. If I don't hear from you after that the prize will be allocated to another entry.
-I'll do my best to mail out the books to the lucky winners as quickly as possible, but please remember that there will be delays if you're in a different country to me.
Ok so I think that about covers it. This is the first google form I've created so if anything seems to be faulty or not working please let me know and I'll do what I can to fix it. You've got until the 29th of July to enter so spread the word (or don't if you want to keep the odds in your favour!) and good luck!
