Readers Appreciation Giveaway - Handmade Quilt

Handmade Quilt Giveaway 

I've talked before about my love of quilting, and 2 or 3 years ago I gave away a pink ribbon quilt during a Breast Cancer Awareness event. Time to mix quilting and writing... with a bookcase quilt, of course!

This lap quilt is about 44" by 36" (110cm by 90cm), all cotton fabrics and polyester batting. Perfect to keep you warm while you enjoy a good book!

I made the quilt above specifically for one of my readers, and I've been trying to figure out how to make sure it goes to someone who actually knows I'm a writer and has read something of mine :-P  The idea I came up with relies on my newsletter, and on reviews. I'll probably give away another quilt in a few months, and if you have a better idea on how I could run the next contest, I'm open to suggestions!

So here's the deal. For a chance to win, you must be a subscriber of my newsletter. Just that gives you 5 entries in the Rafflecopter giveaway. If you want better odds, you can submit links for places where you reviewed my books. What kind of reviews, you ask? Easy.
  • reviews for free books (Ward of the Vampire or Overture for example) or books for sale
  • reviews for books that you received as a prize for a past giveaway
  • reviews for books you got from me or Netgalley in exchange for a review
  • reviews for box sets that include one of my stories
  • reviews you wrote years ago and reviews you wrote an hour ago
  • reviews for ebooks, paperbacks and audiobooks
  • glowing reviews... and not so glowing ones...
  • basically, if it's a review for something I wrote and you posted it where you got it, it counts!
You can submit a different review link every day for the duration of the giveaway and improve your chances even more.

The giveaway ends on June 5th. A random winner will be chosen and contacted by email to provide their mailing address once I check their entry. 10 more participants will be picked to receive assorted swag packs.

To my loyal readers overseas... Yes, you are welcome to participate! I will ship the quilt (and swag) wherever the winners live. It might take a while to get to Europe, Australia or wherever else, but it'll get there eventually.

That's it. Any question, ask in the comments. Good luck!

  3. That quilt is gorgeous! Seriously, I am impressed. It's true what they say about creative talent showing up in more than one area of expression.

  4. I wish I was able to make something like this but I"m not very skillful with a sawing

    1. You should see my very first quilt. It's.... messy :P we use it as picnic blanket, but it's getting a bit small now with a wiggly baby so i'll make a new one for Father's Day.


I always love to hear what you think!
