Contests, a million tiny contests...

'Tis the season for blog giveaways, amiright? Seems like everyone's in giving spirit of some sorts! If you are anything like me and LOVE to get free stuff, let me kindly direct you to some that I'm seeing around the blogosphere as of late.

This one's from me! I give away nine books, art, and a reminder not to forget to be awesome. (DFTBA!) http://alliteratiarchives.blogspot.com/2010/12/week-of-awesome-continuesgiveaway.html

From L.T. Host! A five book pack of things I'm dying to read, especially Gary Corby's THE PERICLES COMMISSION! Go win it for me, plz. http://alliteratiarchives.blogspot.com/2010/12/woo-hoo-week-of-awesomeness-is-here.html

From Matt Delman! The Ten Word Novel contest is back with a chance to win a steampunked short story, a social media consultation or a detailed line edit. Whoa! Fancy stuff. Go here: http://alliteratiarchives.blogspot.com/2010/12/ten-word-novel-contest.html

Beth Revis' EPIC contest of EPIC! Win one of 100 prizes!! Her book, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE looks amazing, too. Check it here: http://bethrevis.blogspot.com/2010/12/epic-contest-of-epic.html

Cindy Pon doing her own massive giveaway of EIGHT fabulous books! So much fantasy...so little time! http://cindypon.com/2010/choose-your-own-tgifbm/

Oy! This one from The Enchanted Inkpot ends tomorrow! And it's HUUUGE! Don't read anymore, just hurry over there! http://community.livejournal.com/enchantedinkpot/75531.html

Susan Kay Quinn does it for charity! As a huge fan and supporter of Heifer International, I approve of this Llama-licious giveaway/charity commentfest. Enter here! You know, for the kids. http://ink-spells.blogspot.com/2010/12/holiday-celebration-week-of-llamas.html

Who am I missing?? I'm missing a million. If you have anymore you've come across, throw them down in the comments below. Until then, go out there and get yourself something nice for the holidays.

UPDATE: Contests from the comments!

Valerie Geary says: "I've got two gift cards to the bookstore of your choice up for grabs! Two winners. $25 and $15 cards. Who doesn't like free books?" http://valeriegeary.blogspot.com/2010/12/want-to-win-some-book.html I will be right there, Valerie!

Christine offers this from Tor:
http://www.tor.com/blogs/2010/12/solstice-countdown-day-16-giveaway-very-big-quite-insane-sff-bookshelf And it's DAILY, even!

And this from Anna Staniszewski! http://www.annastan.com/2010/12/december-book-giveaway/ Oooh...Scorch Trials...

Even better: do you have TOO many books? Looking to donate some for this holiday season? A school library in Massachusetts is in dire need of gently used books! More details here: http://www.annastan.com/2010/12/donate-your-unwanted-books-to-a-library-in-need/

In the meantime, this vintage sketchbook drawing (circa 1999) is brought to the blog specifically for one Miss Jolee, just because I was thinking about you today. Adventures in Babysitting all the way. People from the future ALL wear hula skirts.

I think they're doing one everyday.

Love to you, hubby and kidlet!

Nice! Oh, good old Tor. I think most of my bookshelf at one point in high school was sponsored by Tor. Thanks, Christine!

Jolee said...

HAHAHAHA!!! I LOVE IT!!!! That may be the best Christmas present ever! And reminds me yet again... one of these days, I'll scan the picture I've still got from '99. You're the best!

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

Thanks for the linky love! And llama-licious = awesome. :)

Anna Staniszewski said...

Hi Marie! Thanks so much for including the giveaway and book drive. So many great contests!

K. Marie Criddle said...

Jolee: scan it! I have no idea what I might have drawn for you in a fit of Tae-Bo induced delirium!
Susan: My pleasure! Can't wait to see the rest of the Llama-licious week.
Anna: No problem! Such a good cause...please keep us updated with Jenna's school!

Ohhhh, contests. I hope I'm not too late. I haven't been to visit the Alliterati in a while. And just curious, but the title of your post reminds me of Commander Data "lifeforms, a million tiny lifeforms"
