Summer Giveaway #8

And the Summer Giveaway #7 winner is Nadine Clark! Congrats! You've won an autographed copy of Death's Redemption along with the fairy charm necklace. :D Make sure to write to grace.v.coronado@gmail.com and let her know you're the #7 SG winner.

First off, thank you for all the awesome suggestions yesterday. You guys really nailed a lot of the ones that I've already lined up for their own stories down the road. I'm in love with Wonderland, so I'll be going back there and writing a romance for the very misunderstood Queen of Hearts, Evil Queen of course has gotten a bad rap, and there are a few others that might surprise you. ;)

Today I'm giving away an autographed copy of Death's Redemption along with the Huntsman's ax charm necklace!

So question today... because I really love hearing the way you readers think...

What kind of swag is your favorite to get from an author?

You know the rules, answer below... and may the odds be ever in your favor ;)

I'd definitely have to say books and themed jewelry. I'm enough of a bookworm that I'd just be happy with an autographed book, but the themed jewlery has been pretty interesting so far.

I love bags and tee-shirts with quotes on them, bookmarks too. I've heard that you can get temporary tattoos and bumper stickers, I think that would be awesome but I've never seen them. Of course there has to be jewellery: wristbands and necklaces. A hat would be cool. There are so many thing I would like to get (I listed most of them above) out of all of them my favourite would be a piece of jewellery. I could be wearing it out and someone say 'that's pretty' and I would just smile because they don't know about the awesome world it comes from. I might even tell them about it. If they're lucky.

I would be happy with an autographed book or even a book mark. I love the jewelry idea! Or even a key chain

Any swag is awesome, but my favorite are gift cards. That way I can buy more books :D

Jessica Bolduc said...

I will have to say signed books...I love paperback books.

Anything free is always a plus in my book, but I'd have to say that themed book jewelry has to be the best swag giveaway I've seen so far. It is creative and a fun way to turn books we love into fashion statements. Anytime you see it, it reminds you of the story you love, and brings a smile to your heart.

Krista Albers said...

My favorite would have to be autographed books and bookmarks. Jewelry, autographed pictures, t-shirts, hats, tote bags, etc are all awesome too. A visit from the author would totally rock! The books and picture would be treasured and the bookmarks would be used with every book read! :-)

Sharron Hatt said...

I'd love to get themed jewelry and bookmarks. That way I can wear my jewelry and read with a cool bookmark. I love autographed books too though.

Signed books and theme jewelry of books

Crystal Moon said...

The autographed books are awesome, especially since they are some of my favorite stories. Magnets of the covers would be a great idea and I think the jewelry is really a nice idea too.

I love love love signed copies of the author's work! And I love mugs (I'm a little bit coffee crazy and I have a mug collection to prove it:) )

Kelsea Moore said...

Signed books, or pretty much anything that I could get from them.

Deborah Heart said...

I love the "out of the box" swag some authors do. The jewelry is a great idea. Anything that's not necessarily book-related, but still somehow personalized for a certain book. It's really neat to see what authors come up with. Also bookmarks, because really you can never have too many bookmarks. ^_^

kedrin Gallagher said...

I love it when authors give out signed books, jewelry, or when they give out book marks :)... or giftcards

melanie haneline said...

amanda wilkie said...

autographed books, bookmarks, i love this themed jewelry idea. i think hatter is sooo hot and wearing jewelry representing him is awesome! ;)

Cherri said...

OMG! I love any swag that I can get from an author! Autographed is sweet as well. I am just happy when an author is willing to recognize me as a reader and loyal fan enough to sen me something! I did recently receive/win some "useable" items - necklace, tote bag - and that was great because now I can show off my love for my authors as well! :)

Wendy Norris Roberts said...

I really enjoy receiving anything that is personally autographed! That makes it even more special!

Steph F. said...

I like practical usable swag, coffee cups, note pads, pens, koozies and I really love the handmade bookmarks.

Amethyst said...
