CONTEST!


I mentioned in my last post about the amazing people I have met during my writing journey--one of those people is the phenomenal Julie Wright who has enriched and blessed my life in ways too numerous to count. I am continually impressed with her optimism, compassion, work ethic, and just the plain ol' joy she finds in life. I have watched her work so hard for so many years and create amazing stories that blow my mind--one of which has JUST been released by Covenant Communications. AND, because she's awesome and because I love you guys, you get the chance to win a copy of her book, Eyes Like Mine.

I had the chance to do some editing on this book in the early stages of it's development, and it is AWESOME. I don't do many book giveaways on my blog, so that in and of itself ought to attest to how highly I think of this book. While it's categorized as YA (most you know how I feel about most YA) it's a GREAT book and worth the read no matter your age!

So, here's how you enter:

1) Become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment to tell me so. If you're already a follower, just put it in the comment trail and you're entered automatically.

2) Leave an online review for one of my books. Links to my books on DB's website can be found via my website www.josikilpack.com--just go to the book you want to leave a review for and click on the 'buy the book' icon. Once you've left the review, either e-mail me or leave a comment here on my blog so that you get entered into the contest.

You get an entry for becoming a follower as well as an additional entry for every review you leave (copy and paste the same review into multiple review websites--I don't mind!). Just be sure to tell me how you've entered.

AND, if you're interested in winning a copy of English Trifle, check out Julie's blog where she's running a similar contest. Double prizes, baby!

Contest will end on Sunday, July 12. I'll post the winner on Monday!

Follower! Reviewer! I'm down with it, baby!

Seriously, I am a follwer and I did just submit a review for DB's website. The very first review I've ever put on a site! I'm kind of scared about it. See how much I love your books, Josi? Okay...I won't lie. I love Julie's too!

Lara said...

I was surprised I wasn't already following you, 'cause you're in my reader. :) Well, I'm following you now.

As for the reviews, I'm ashamed to say I haven't yet read one of your books. I need to get my hands on one pretty quickly I guess!

Sandra said...

I am a follower! And I just got English Trifle today. Thanks so much. I do actually have to go to bed sometime tonight- grandbaby tomorrow as well as class- yikes! I'll review it as soon as I finish reading.

Marcia Mickelson said...

Hey, I just became a follower. I can't believe I wasn't one before!

Danielle said...

I am a follower. I love your books!

Danielle said...

I left a review on DB for To Have and To Hold.

Crystal said...

Hey! I "officially" became a follower of your blog (I only "officially" follow 2 blogs, so you see what a big deal that is)!

Also, I left a review for Her Good Name back in January. Does that count? In addition to that, I just left a review for both To Have or to Hold and for Lemon Tart.

I'm very excited to read both Eyes Like Mine and English Trifle even if I don't win them! :)

Heather B. Moore said...

I just finished reading EYES LIKE MINE about an hour ago. I absolutely loved it! Even though I read an early draft about a year ago and knew what happened, I STILL cried. That darn Julie!

Sandra said...

Josi, the link to your website in this post is not working. It keeps asking for a log in and password.

When I type it in manually, I added an s between josi and kilpack and then it works fine.

Chantele said...

I am a follower!:) I love your books!

Josi said...

Thanks for pointing out that link, Sandra. I fixed it :-0

Sandra said...

I just did a review of Lemon Tart. I thought I had done one before, but that was because it was in my draft folder ;)

Melanie J said...

I'm a follower AND I know I did a DB review of Lemon Tart a while ago. I think I did one for In Her Good Name, too (also a while ago). And I'm pretty sure I did Lemon Tart on Goodreads, too. Do any of those count?

Melissa J. Cunningham said...

I'm already a follower and I will go post some reviews from your site! I want to win!

Danyelle Ferguson said...

I reviewed Sheep's Clothing

Danyelle Ferguson said...

I reviewed Her Good Name on DB.

Danyelle Ferguson said...

I reviewed Unsung Lullaby on DB.

Danyelle Ferguson said...

Reviewed Lemon Tart on DB.

BTW - do other places like Amazon or Good Reads count for reviews or only DB?

Kim Thompson said...

I'm a follower. Can't wait to read English Trifle!

CTW said...

Everything you said about Julie and her books is true. You both are as wonderful in real life and you are in the not always as real world of writers. Thanks for being my friend. And I believe I'll manage to get a review up. Does Amazon count, or does it need to DB?
And I am a follower of course.

Stephanie Humphreys said...

I'm a follower! I'm looking forward to reading English Trifle.

Cheri Chesley said...

I'm a follower and I just posted a review for Lemon Tart on DB's website. Does it count that I also reviewed it a couple months ago on Goodreads? :)

Sheila said...

I thought I had already signed up to follow your blog; how very strange. Now I am a true follower.

As far as reviews, could I copy and paste my reviews I did on my blog about your books? I am not trying to be lazy, just super busy with school starting July 27th for me.

Holly said...

Well, I follow. And I've reviewed Lemon Tart and Her Good Name. Each was posted previously on Amazon and Goodreads as well as my blog. Today, however, I posted them both on Deseret Book.

So shouldn't that get me 9 entries? LOL!!!

lachish said...

Follower now!

I've reviewed Her Good Name and Lemon Tart on LDSFICTION.blogspot.com

Keep the books coming!

Jenna Consolo said...

Oooooh, count me in! I can't believe I wasn't ALREADY following your blog! I always read it! Pick me!

Heather said...

I think this is how you do a comment trail. I would love to win a book.

Julie Wright said...

awww, josi, you made me sniffle. Don't enter me in your contest, but know I love you!

Heather Justesen said...

One hour to the deadline! I can't believe I wasn't officially a follower before. I guess I just stopped by on my own. =)

I also did book reviews for five of your books on both Shelfari and GOodreads.

Teach me to stay away for so long. I missed out :( Bummer for me, man.
