After I set the original contest deadline, a friend invited me back to her cottage. I went there with her last year and it was wonderfully relaxing and exciting too. The picture here shows me feeding one of the raccoons that lives behind the cottage. (I have never wanted to reach out and pat a wild animal more in my life but I did restrain myself. :)
I said yes immediately, of course, and then realized I'd be away when the contest ended.
So, I will be back on August 3rd and will now pick the winners on August 4th. This gives you a few more days to post and retweet if you haven't quite gotten to it yet!
I'll paste in the directions from the original post below to make it easier for you to enter, and have a great weekend! :)
Here's how to win:
Comment on this post (or on the original contest post). You can tell me about your favorite way to celebrate your birthday, describe your worst ex, or just say you want the book. Either include your email address in the comment (writing it like "me(at)here(dot)com" to avoid spammers is fine) or have a Blogger profile that includes your email address. Commenting in either place gets you one entry, so comment in both for two!
Each of the following activities will get you one additional entry:
1. Twitter about the contest. Here's a sample tweet for you, but feel free to write your own instead as long as it uses my Twitter handle, the book's title, and my bit.ly link to this post. (Using bit.ly means I can track how far the link spreads, so please do use only the link I've provided.)
Win "Seven Exes Are Eight Too Many" by @heatherwardell - stranded with HOW many exes?? - details at http://bit.ly/hw-7g - RT to win!2.Blog about the contest. Again, please use http://bit.ly/hw-7g as your link.
3. Be a fan of my Facebook page on August 4th. (You're welcome to do this earlier, of course. :)
And the big one... send me a link to a review you've written for any of my books, and I'll give you two entries to the contest!
Check out the first scene at my web site, and good luck! :)
