The 11,111 Hits Giveaway Extravaganza!

Posted on

I came onto my blog this morning to discover that the hit counter was at 11,111 hits, precisely. That has to be a sign, right? I mean, that’s, like, one one better than the magic of 11:11, which, when spotted, we are to stop what we are doing and make a wish.

So I thought, ‘How can I celebrate this milestone?’ The answer came to me right away! I have a new book coming out VERY SOON. Why don’t I give away a print copy of Sebastian’s Poet? And I can send along a copy of my first book, Summer on Fire, at the same time.

So, in celebration of 11,111 hits, I am throwing a little contest. It’s also a celebration of the release of Sebastian, my personal favourite story of all the ones I have ever written.


1st Prize: 1 copy of Sebastian’s Poet and 1 copy of Summer on Fire

2nd & 3rd Prize: 1 copy of Sebastian’s Poet

(all prizes include shipping, naturally!)


Summer on Fire is published by MUSEITUPPUBLISHING and is available everywhere as a print or ebook!

Sebastian’s Poet is published by MUSAPUBLISHING and will soon be available wherever ebooks are sold! (Note that it will not be available to the public as a print book!)

(Please note that these two publishers are not the same publishers. Musa and MuseItUp are two completely different entities.)

HOW TO ENTER: Simply leave a comment on this post before MIDNIGHT JUNE 18th!

Please help spread the word. This is also a celebration of the release of Sebastian’s Poet. (-:

    Now this is a genius idea! I may even ‘borrow’ it in the future for my giveaways. In the meantime, I will share and tweet this for you, Kevin! Best wishes on a brilliant, literary career. You deserve it! Cheers!

    Can’t wait to read it :) You can save the postage too – I’ll grab it from you when you’re up here for the Muskoka Novel Marathon!

    Oh Kevin, 11,111 hits is definitely a magical sign… you should be celebrating with “Lucky Cake”! Grin! For the record, I’m the one yelling the loudest in this e-crowd… “I WANT MY OWN COPY OF SEBASTIAN’S POET RIGHT NOW!” Can you hear me? (insert a picture of me doing a dance… a begging dance)

    I loved Summer On Fire, and although I already have my own autographed copy, I could use the one I win, to have a contest at my son’s school. He’s in Grade 8 and graduating this year, so what 14-year-old wouldn’t love to win a YA book… my kid reads 24/7 and so do quite a few of his friends. He’s the one I told you about last September… as soon as I brought it home from the Muskoka Novel Marathon wrap-up party, he was fist-fighting his sister for my copy of Summer on Fire… it was all about the ‘who’s going to read it first’… should make you feel good… it’s alright, you can smile & giggle if you want. It’s awesome to be fought over… every writer’s dream! :)

I think we have the same taste, since The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Fault in the Stars are both favourites of mine. Congratulations on your new book, and please choose me!

    I’m ineligible! I live on a faraway island. But what a wonderful contest. I will content myself with purchasing this undoubtedly marvelous novel from this assuredly marvelous author.
