~Giveaway~ Woo-hoo! 100 Posts! (OK, 101.)

I've reached a milestone (in my opinion) on this narcissistic little blog of mine. 100 posts this year. (Honestly, this particular post, this one right here that you're reading right now, is 101. But hey, why quibble over semantics?) 

That said, we need to celebrate. OK, I need to celebrate. Let's do this right. 

Comment on this post (the actual blogger post, not any of the feeds) and you'll get a download code for my fantasy short story when it's released. I'm not selecting one winner. EVERYONE who comments gets to download the story for free. 

What fantasy short story, you ask? Well, once upon a time, I wrote this little story, sort of as a prequel to my fantasy novel UNPUBLISHED fantasy novel series. Weird, right? To be even more honest, it was a short story I wrote specifically for the UNLOCKED anthology way back when. It was one of fours stories I'd submitted to the anthology editors and it was one of the rejects. (Haha! Really makes you want it, huh?)

Want more info before you commit yourself? You can go to my website, where I've posted a sample of the short story. Oh, it's called The Dragon's Birth, just in case you were wondering. 

There are a few caveats. You must be 18+ or have a parent's permission to comment. There's nothing totally awful in the story, I'm just trying to cover my butt here. You must include an email address; how else can I contact you with the download code? You have to be a follower of this blog. Fair's fair, right? And I will enforce these rules (I've been known not to in the past) so DO NOT FORGET: 18+, email address, blog follower. Easy peasy. Oh, and you have to wait patiently for the story's release. It's not out there yet, but it will be soon. After its release, each commenter (Chrome says this is not a word. Weird. Should it be commentator?) who remembers to include their email address will get a little message in their inbox with that precious little Smashwords code. Exciting! :OP

This offer officially ends September 16.

I'll leave you with a question. Did I use SEMANTICS (first paragraph of this post) correctly?

Happy reading, writing, and winning!!

Yes, I believe you did use semantics correctly, though not in the common way (referring to a word not a numeral). :)

I would be delighted to receive this prize. I can't wait to read that one.

Congratulations to you, dear Jaimey, for reaching this milestone. Always a pleasure to visit your blog and get to read your wonderful writing. ♥

Cynthia Schuerr said...

Jaimey, you are so generous. I would love a short story to read. And you certainly used the word "semantics" correctly, but as Rachel mentioned, in an "uncommon" way. I love that, because there is nothing common about you, dear girl.:-)

Congrats on reaching a goal!

Thank you so much, Rachel, Linda, Cindy, and Abigail! I have a really hard time sticking with anything for too long so this is a really big deal for me. :O)

Congrats, Jaimey! Well done :)

Semantics looks fine, commenters looks fine (Firefox thinks "commenter" is fine but "commenters" is wrong!), but the "fours" in the fourth paragraph might be a typo.


My captcha is "batiness." Am I just batty today?

Jaimey Grant said...

Ooo, good catch, Julie! "Fours" is indeed a typo. :O)
