Customer Appreciation Giveaway

*UPDATE: This giveaway has been extended to December 1!*

I’m so grateful to everyone who has spent their hard-earned money on a copy of my first novel, The Clearing. Seriously, you guys. SO GRATEFUL.

I understand how difficult it is to part with your cash, especially for a book that isn’t backed by a publisher.

After yesterday’s post, I worry that people will think I don’t care about their support. That I shrug about compliments on my book, that good reviews don’t mean anything to me. Well, they do mean something. They mean a lot, actually.

So I’d like to say thank you . . . in a big way.

Starting today and going through Tuesday, November 15, Thursday, December 1anyone who has purchased a copy of The Clearing can enter to win a $50 Amazon giftcard as a token of my gratitude!

Here are all the details.


  • You must own a copy of The Clearing, either in paperback or electronic form. (If you don’t have one yet, you can find links to all the places it is sold in the sidebar of this blog!)
  • You must be a follower of this blog. (If you’re not, click “Join This Site” in the sidebar and follow the prompts until your picture shows up in the box.)
How To Enter:
  • E-mail a picture of yourself with The Clearing to annerileybooks(at)gmail(dot)com. (Please replace words in parentheses with the actual symbols!)
  • If it is a paperback, just hold it up next to your face so I can see you and the cover clearly.
  • If it is an e-version, you must send a picture of yourself with the last page of the book. It can be on your Nook, on your computer, or whatever, but I need to see the last page on the screen!
  • Make sure you include your full name in the e-mail!
Bonus Entries:
  • I will enter you one additional time for each review of The Clearing that you post online.
  • You can copy and paste the same review in multiple places, and you will receive an additional entry for each place that you post (Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, etc.) Must be a review, not just a star rating!
  • To receive your extra entries, include links to your reviews in your e-mail.
Edited to add: As of 10/5, if you post the following as your Facebook status or as a tweet, I will give you another entry. Just mention that you did it when you email me!
Anne Riley is hosting a giveaway, and the prize is a $50 Amazon gift card! Check it out!
I’ll draw a winner on November 16 December 2 and that lucky person will receive a $50 Amazon Gift Card! Good luck!

  1. Hi Anne – I am not entering the contest. I just wanted to stop by and say to your commenters and followers:

    I won a copy of Anne’s book, “The Clearing” and I love this story. It is a wonderful read! The book stands on its own and now to have the opportunity to win a give-a-way for purchasing the book. Frosting on the cake! Good luck everyone!

    P.S. – Anne – Many, many HAPPY SALES!
