Do you want to win a book?

My husband decided to do his own book giveaway with his own rules. This is all his idea, but I told him I would post it.

So, here's how it goes. It's easy. He is looking for comments from 25 DIFFERENT people- that is his first requirement. If there aren't enough comments, he doesn't give a book away.

To enter to win a free copy of Alvor (which my husband decided would be signed by him and me) all you have to do is leave a comment.

If you follow this blog, you get two entries. The most anyone can get is two entries.

The biggest catch is that there has to be 25 different people comment by the 25th of August. We will do a random drawing and announce the winner August 25th.

Post your comment by the end of the day August 24.

I already have a book (signed at Authorpalooza--thanks!), but I can think of a couple people I could give one away to. :)

I would like another just for me--after Taylor gets done with our family copy it will be thrashed. And signed by my little bro as well--put my name in the drawing!
(I like your new website :-)

Taylor said...

I've already got a good chance of winning a signed copy of your book (Those who want double insurance should check out the giveaway that
http://thelateinergangbookreviewspot.blogspot.com
is holding at this moment), but I see that this contest will end earlier and the book will be signed by you and your husband (how extra special! ^,^), so please, sign me up for this contest!!!

You guys should have little problem getting 25 comments anyway. You almost have 25 followers to begin with. ^,^ Good luck!

Oh, and I checked out your website! VERY awesome. ^_^

I'd love to win a book. This one sounds so good. Good luck on the 25 comments.

Good luck with the giveaway. I heard it's a fun read, and would love a copy. I'll probably buy one anyway, so don't feel like you have to pick me. I'm just proud of you-- I aspire to someday publish my own fiction so it makes me really happy to see your success!

I would love, love, love a copy! I just put myself on a book buying ban because I was spending too much money. But I still need to feed the habit! And I've seen only 5 star reviews on amazon, which is all kinds of awesome.
And I'm always looking for books to review on my YA Review blog, so this would be perfect.
Plus extra points for already being a follower.

Rachel said...

I would love to win a copy of your book. My friend Sara says it is wonderful and told me about your giveaway...so here I am. :)

Amy Carter said...

My friend is in your ward and she said your book was awesome. It's on my Goodreads list. I want it really bad!

Sara said...

My sister-in-law tried to leave a comment but she doesn't have a google account so she asked me to put a comment for her. She is really excited to get this book for her 14 year old son.

My cousin Sara Westbrook told me about your book and if she likes it I know I will. Congratulations on getting a book published. What an accomplishment!

Kerren said...

Parley has great ideas.
This book makes a terrific gift and I should know. I've given away many copies and will continue to share it with young readersI know. Those of us
considered "old" aren't past enjoying it as well. Sure was fun to see you in Utah! Loved the relaxing time together. Thanks for being here!

Melissa said...

Our copy is dogeared. :) We'd need a new one to take over to the school library! :)

Thatcher Family said...

I already have it too, but I'd love a signed copy! ;)

Jenn said...

I want to win your book! :) I still haven't read it yet, but I would love to...and so would my teenage daughter! :) Also, I follow your blog about once a week. Does that count for another entry? :)

Gruvinmom said...

Winning a copy of your book would make a great gift to give for Christmas since we already have a copy. My daughter was given one for her birthday. Love your new website!

Dave said...

AARGH, I have waited so long to post here. Not wanting to mess up the contest, I was waiting to be #26 but I just can't hold out any longer. ALL OF YOU WHO POSTED HERE TO WIN A COPY OF ALVOR: why have you not ran and told all of your friends and other fellow bloggers to come here and enter this contest?? Oh, it must be because you all are selfish and know how AMAZING ALVOR is and don't want to decrease your odds of winning. You better go and spread the word because the clock is a tickin. I was going to post a link on my site, but I didn't want to mess up your contest. 5 days left and if you guys aren't going to spread the word, I guess I'm just going to have to. Oh, and Laura, I'm jealous of the winner. I'm going to have to send my book back. "P" didn't sign mine!

I have your book already but I'm always happy to comment (and I'm already a follower too!) Sorry about your wrist. I hope you're feeling better. *hugs*

The Marshall Family said...

I would love to win this book. I have heard great things and love to read! Thanks!

Angela said...

Yeah free books! - would love to win and read your book!

DaVette said...

I heard about your book from my friend Sara Westbrook. I just read the first chapter you have posted. I would love the get a signed copy to find out what happens next. I know Sara loves the book, so will I. Your website is wonderful!

Shiloh said...

I loved the book and I am planning on re-reading with the kids soon. I know a few people that would like a copy.

Laura said...

This is Laura's husband, one of the people Alvor is dedicated to, thus the reason for my contest and signature.

Congratulations to everyone! 25 different people and we even picked up some new followers. We really appreciate your support of Laura and Alvor. It is a great book. I read it to Jaden and the twins every night. They don't let me skip too easily. This is definately a book that lifts your heart and fills you with good. I am amazed at the talent of my beautiful wife every time I read it. I still get that buzz when I hit some parts that I sure probably only comes from a proud husband, but it is so neat to have it manifested to me. Laura is a gem as you all know, please share your feelings about her and Alvor with everyone you know. She wrote this book because of the passion she has for literature, but also because she wants to make a difference in the lives of others. Alvor will make a difference when it touches those that read it.

Thanks again you are all a great support and those that sent you here as well.

Magenta said...

Yaaaaay! You got the 25+ comments you wanted! Now the contest will work. ^_^ Can't wait to see who the winner is...

Sandi said...

I've just finished reading your book and I absolutely LOVE it! It seems you are a natural born writer.I would love to win a book signed by you and your husband.
I am looking forward to the many books I can see in the future, seems it can go forever! I'm so excited I can hardly wait!

Laura,
We were in barnes and noble today and my older one (Lauryn) came up to me and said, "Dad, Look what I found!! Look what I found!!". I bet you can't guess which book she had in her hand. Then a girl was asking her mom to help her pick out a "cool" book to read and Lauryn marched right up to them, handed her the copy of ALVOR and said, "you should read this, its so cool, and my dad even knows the author!". I believe she sold a copy of ALVOR tonight.
