A Breathless Giveaway!

I cannot believe that it's tour time again! I did the Breathless Reads tour last year as well, and it was amazingly awesome.

Long time readers of my blog know that I tend to celebrate good things with giveaways, and this year's tour celebration will be no different!

First, the prizes!

Signed copies of the books on tour:


Across the Universe
by me :)

Born Wicked
by Jessica Spotswood

Nightshade 
by Andrea Cremer

Legend
by Marie Lu

AND: You might have noticed that two authors on tour (myself and Andrea) have sequels out. If the entries for this contest reach 5,000 *or* the Breathless Reads Sampler download hits the top 100 list in either Amazon or BN *or* the Breathless Reads Facebook Page hits 2,500 likes, I will add THREE more books to this giveaway--the sequels to Across the Universe and Nightshade.



That's right: you could win up to SEVEN signed books! 
One prize-winner will take home EVERYTHING.

AND: If I pick up any goodies along the way--such as a signed Breathless Reads tour poster--I'll be sure to add it to the pot. And if I get more than one poster, I'll add those to send to multiple winners...

So, how do you enter? Simple. Basically, I want to make sure everyone knows about the tour. If these tours are successful, Penguin will keep doing them. As it's really important to me to spread the word, all the entries to the contest are linked to that.

In the Rafflecopter below, there are easy ways to spread the word via Tweet, Facebook, etc. Even if you're not online, you can simply tell a friend about the tour and enter that way. (And of course, multiple entries are welcome!)

Additionally, there are three things you can do to get extra entries.

(1) Post the Breathless Reads poster somewhere online, and link it back to the Breathless Reads page. Remember, if the page reaches 2,500 likes, I'm adding more books to the prize!


(2) Download the Sampler of the Breathless Reads books on either Kindle or Nook. Remember, if these hit the top 100 lists during the tour, I'm adding extra books to the prize haul!


To download a free chapter sampler, click here:

(3) Actually come to one of the stops on the tour. Ask me for the codeword, and I'll tell you a secret word to plug into the Rafflecopter. I know this one's a little biased towards the people who can actually come to the stops, but I really want to give props to the people who come, and I've given everyone else other ways to enter. To find out where the stops are, click here.

Contest Details:
  • Open internationally
  • Must have parent/guardian's permission to enter if below age 18
  • Only entries in the Rafflecopter form below qualify as entries to the giveaway

you always have the best giveaways. now if only I could win one. :))

Julia :) said...

I think it's kinda lame that if you go to a tour stop you get extra entries. I'm nowhere near a tour stop otherwise I would definitey be there! Also: isn't part of the reason for this giveaway to allow people who can't make it to the tour still have a chance to get signed copies of the books? Just saying. :P

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!! I absolutely loooved Across the Universe and Legend but have yet to read Nightshade and Born Wicked (shame on me!) even though they've been on my TBR forever. Hope you have an awesome time on your tour!! I'll help spread the word :)

Thank you so so SO much for having this give away! I loved reading Across the Universe so I can't wait to read the other books from the tour :D

trayche said...

thanks for the awsome giveaway

Katie @ BlookGirl said...

Woo-hoo! I can't wait to get the code word because that means I'll be seeing you IN THE FLESH! :-) There is nothing more exciting to me than to meet authors who you admire, and I sure do admire all you lovely ladies :-)

Thank you, Beth!

Bonnie Rae said...

Beth, I am coming to the Long Beach, CA tour date, but it is one day after the scheduled contest ends =(
The day I see you guys is the 25th of February. I'm flying in, and not bringing my laptop so I won't be able to add to the entry until I get home on the 26th.

If I give you proof I have registered and will be there can I still get points?

Candace @ Lovey Dovey Books said...

This giveaway is so much fun, I have to make sure I tell all my Twitter and Facebook friends :)

Hope the tour is a success, I don't live anywhere near those place. If I did I'd go!

Have fun :)

T_T
we love you!

barmybex said...

Awesome, such fantastic prizes. thanks. :D

The Romance Bookie said...

Hello Beth! I'm in the same boat as Bonnie Rae, I'm coming to the Long Beach stop, but since the contest ends on the 26th, how will we get our entries?? :)

beth said...

Those of you who pointed out that I closed the contest too soon...you're right! I'm sorry; I'll change the end date to March 1 :) Rafflecopter is giving me a bit of trouble right now, but I'll change that as soon as I can.

Also: sorry some of you think it is unfair to add in the extra entries for people who can come to the stop, but keep in mind that coming to the stop is only 5 out of 18 possible entries :)

Mel said...

This is a great giveaway. I hope your tour goes well. Unfortunately you aren't touring near me :(

Jo said...

I just found your page, and your books. Thank you so much for an awesome giveaway. When you visit Sweden on your tour, I'll come visit. ;-)

Gaby Pendragon said...

Omg!! this is so cool, sadly I don't have an account at B&N or Amzon but I sure tell my friends about this, and keep my fingers crossed!

Alecsa All said...

This giveaway is so awesome. Unfortunately i live in Europe, not in US and i can't go to your tour.
I really hope i'll be lucky this time since the books you can win aren't publiished in my country :D

Evie said...

Thanks for this amazing giveaway!

Lynsey Newton said...

Please bring the tour to the UK!!!!

Tricia said...

Ahhh sweet!! thank you for the chance to win amazing books!

Liz said...

This is awesome! I was soooo bummed out when I found out that the tour wouldn't be making a stop in NC this year. I went to the one at Quail last time, and it was just so much fun. Best event I've ever been too probably! There's not even one I can reasonably drive to this go-round. :(

Thanks for the amazing giveaway, and tell those silly Penguin people to give your home state some love on the next one! ;D

Lex said...

cool giveaway! I wish the tour was near me. I read across the Universe and enjoyed it - a million suns is on my shopping list - but may wait until after the contest.

Christina Farley said...

What an awesome tour and great contest! Have fun!

Joanna said...

A breathless giveaway, INDEED... Thanks Beth!
*Wish I could come to one of your tour stops. If y'all were coming near the panhandle of Florida, I would SO be on that train. It would be lovely to meet all of you. Everyone's book rules!

Ms.Sparkle said...

Oooh I hope I strike it lucky >.< This is an amazing giveaway.Thanks so much!

Sarahbotbonkers said...

Oh it's too bad I don't live in the US to come to the tour stops. But thank you for opening this giveaway to everyone. :)

Chi Kittie said...

Thank you so much for this giveaway. I wish I could come to one of the stops but I dont live anywhere near one. :( I have been passing the word around to a lot of my friends and family who loves to read. :)

LitzaLou said...

You never cease to amaze me with your awesomeness. :) I am SO glad I got to finally meet you in LA yesterday for the tour. It may have been quite a drive, but I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Ya'll are so funny!

Thanks!!
