If you’re half as excited as we are, you’re at risk of a heart attack.
Why? Because I’m declaring May a month of giveaway madness. Four books, four authors, four weeks of contests, and more prizes than you can shake a stick at!
That’s right: the month of May we’re gonna party like it’s 1889!
No, no, put away your Eiffel Tower figurines, margherita pizzas and jukeboxes. I didn’t mean 1889 the year, I meant 1889 Labs Ltd, independent publisher extraordinaire, ie, us!
There are dozens of ways to win and over ten amazing prizes!
Every week we’ll be giving away one paperback of your choosing, a $10 Amazon voucher, plus some must-have ebooks!
Not enough for you? Well, we’re also running a grand giveaway across all four weeks! Up for grabs this month only:
3rd Place: A backstage pass! Get an advance ebook copy of the next title we’ll publish in June 2011!
2nd Place: A VIP ticket, granting you access to advance copies of every ebook we’ll publish this year, before anyone else gets ahold of them! You can’t say no to 10+ free ebooks!
1st Place: A VIP ticket for 10+ free advance ebooks as outlined above aaaand…. a KINDLE!! #yesreally
