Want to win a free copy of Violets Are Blue?

30 July 2012

In two days, my blog tour for Violets Are Blue will officially begin. Each stop during the tour will be advertised on Literary Lane, with a small excerpt of the interview or guest post to pique your interest.

I had planned to share the tour schedule today in its entirety, but plans have changed since then, and I have decided to add a different twist to this particular blog tour. As mentioned above, I will be sharing each stop on the day it occurs. However, before it is revealed, you will be able to guess where I might be stopping.* I will be sharing the dates of the tour below; all you have to do is fill in the blogs you think will be featuring me (for an extra point, try guessing whether the post will be an interview, guest post, or book review!). Naturally, as each date passes and the answer is revealed, it will be taken off of the list, and you will have less chances to guess. The sooner you guess, the better! The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel earns the most points will win a free autographed copy of Violets Are Blue.

Update as of August 3rd, 2012: There has been a slight change in the rules for my giveaway. I realized that it may be a bit too difficult for someone to madly guess random blogs, as if he were throwing darts at a target while blindfolded. The odds of hitting upon the right blog once — much less several times — are not really in anybody's favor. So, I've decided to make the game a bit easier, and quite a lot more fun (at least I think so). Here's how it's going to work:

The day before (and only the day before) each of my blog tour stops, you can go to the giveaway post to guess where I'll be stopping the next day. Underneath the next day's date, I will have listed the names of three or four different blogs. Pick the answer you believe to be correct, and send it to me in an email (literarylaneblog{at}gmail{dot}com). Sound simple enough? Remember, as soon as the location is revealed, the voting closes. So you have to stop by on the day before! If it's helpful, you can write down the dates of my stops, which are all listed in that post.

August 1st: Tea & Bree

10 epistles:

  1. I guess I can't really enter this, since I've already looked at our calander, can I? *wink*
    So excited for this!

  2. Love this idea, Lizzy! I guess I shouldn't guess though... ;)

    Love ya,

  3. THIS IS SO ANNOYING, Elizabeth... why am I not allowed to guess simply because I live in Australia, the forgotten island down other?!!!... I really badly want to read VAB :), and maybe this will encourage me to do get hold of a copy and do so.

    Well... I already know TWO dates and where you will blog at in your blog tour :D, but of course I will not divulge the specifics to your eager audience for fear of dreadful repercussions! But this is very much a "Bilbo Riddle"... :).

    All the best with this lovely blog tour o' yours :).

    1. I'm so sorry, Joy, but I had to make the U.S. limit because of how expensive shipping to other countries can be. :/ By all means, go ahead and guess anyway for the fun of it.

    2. Hi Elizabeth, please do not apologize... I TOTALLY understand... it would be quite the fortune indeed to send anything overseas... I only meant that above comment as a joke :).

      Thanks, I might try to guess still as this is fun :)


  4. Oh, Elizabeth Rose, how sneaky you are! I am so not good at guessing games, although I really want to read your book! I may be able to randomly guess various blogs, but that's about it. So, I'll resign myself over to you as a conquered mortal. LOL!

    Though, honestly, I can't wait to read and see your blog tours...and hear more about VAB! Best wishes for it all!

    A fellow writer,


  5. Liz, would you like to guest post at my blog for your book?? Do I get a free copy? :)

  6. I'd love to win a copy of your book. It SOUNDS AMAZING!! I love everything that has to do with English history. My name is Gabrielle at londongirl93@gmail.com.

  7. I would really like to win your book. I've been so interested in the Titanic this year! I realize I'm jumping in this game late, but I just found out about it today.

  8. August 31st.....Sweet tea,Jesus and Me?!
