3W4D Book Giveaway Official Entry Post!

ETA: The entry deadline has officially passed. Thank you everyone for participating, and I'll announce the winners ASAP!

It's been 3 weeks, and the moment you've been patiently waiting for has arrived!

Here's how it's gonna go down: As of today, Friday, May 14th, this post is open to anyone, anywhere*, to enter the giveaway. It will remain open for entries until 11:59PM PST on Monday the 17th. After that I will draw 2 winners at random and announce them in a different post. I will then ask them to email or PM me with their address information, which I will never ever distribute, etc. etc.

As a refresher, here are the rules.

The books I've analyzed are:
#1: The Drowning City by Amanda Downum
#2: Skin Game by Ava Gray
#3: Hawkspar by Holly Lisle
#4: Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer

In your comment, you should have either:

1 link to a 3W4D post you made exclusively to DW for the festival
5 links to comments you made on 3W4D posts

As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm going to be on a lovely little island without any form of internet connection over the weekend. After Friday night PST I won't be able to answer any queries until late Sunday at the earliest. Please have patience with me if I'm slow to respond to comments/PMs.

Thank you everyone for your interest in this giveaway and my posts! It's been a pleasure to promote some great books. And if you haven't had enough giveaways in your life, [personal profile] merisunshine36 is giving away 2 copies of N.K. Jemisin's The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.

And out of curiosity's sake: A poll!

ETA: The poll doesn't seem to be working, and I'm too annoyed to fiddle with it. I'll try again later this weekend.

*Only caveat is that I have to be able to ship to you through an online distributor. Also must have a DW account or use Open-ID.

I wrote about awesome female characters in baseball anime for the Fuck Yeah She's Awesome challenge.

Fingers crossed that I get lucky... your review of the Downum book piqued my interest!

If Taishou Yakyuu Musume looks appealing at all (I realize there are lots of people for whom it will probably be too cutesy, alas!), then yeah, definitely check it out. It's SO ADORABLE. *_* (& also short, so a relatively small commitment)

Yay books! Yay DW!

I posted two fics, one written for the transfic fest, about the same character. And I hosted, indexed, and replied to the [community profile] ladyslash comment fest.

Hmm, I get a "You're not permitted to view this poll" message, so I can't tell if I've voted or not.

I did a bunch (my tag's here), but my most popular post was "Writing in quantity", about how I write a lot quickly.

Thanks for doing this! Even if I don't win, the thought that someone's sharing books is really awesome.

I recently wrote a review of Sisterland, and the rest of my 3W4D posts are over here.

I wasn't going to participate, because I only blog on DW now, but I made [community profile] pfc for 3W4DW, so I think that counts. Sadly, I have so far posted only about one article.

...aaaaaaaaand I totally just noticed that it is past the deadline on the post. *facepalm* SORRY, too sleep-deprived to understand dates, apparently.
