The Nothing But Ghosts Sales Drive Extended Until July 24

As of today, 55 copies of Nothing but Ghosts have been bought through our efforts! Thank you so much for your support. At the chat the other night (and yes I'm working on getting a transcript up) several people suggested we extend it and donated a few prizes.

So, here's how things will go from here on out. Whenever we reach a new goal on the way to 200 I'll draw a winner out of the people who have already bought Nothing but Ghosts. BUT they will remain in the drawing for each prize afterwards as well. So basically, the earlier you buy the more chances you have to win.

Here are the prizes left donated by Lenore or myself unless otherwise noted:

At 75 copies, a copy of No Such Thing as The Real World and a My Friend Amy pen
At 100 copies, 15 dollar Amazon (or other online bookseller) gift card.
At 115 copies, a surprise box of 5 gently read books.
At 130 copies, a signed copy of Undercover and No Such Thing as the Real World bundle donated by Beth Kephart
At 140 copies, An ARC of Hold Still by NIna LaCour donated by Alea
At 150 copies a 25 dollar Amazon (or other online bookseller) gift card
At 160 copies, a Philadelphia gift box donated by Betty and Boo's Mommy
At 175 copies, a custom designed blog header by Daniel, Lenore's husband. Daniel has a book coming out in July of 2010, so you have your blog header designed by a world famous published illustrator! The book, Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten? releases in July 2010 from Balzer and Bray (Harper Collins)
At 200 copies, a 100 dollar gift card to Amazon (or other online bookseller) donated by me and someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

I know this is the second time I've extended the sales drive. But it's my first time doing all of this and I suspect I didn't allow enough time the first time around for the word to spread. So help me spread the word if you are so inclined, and let's see if we can hit 200 in a month's time. Thanks everyone!

Oh and the winner of Undercover and a My Friend Amy keychain is Bermuda Onion! (Kathy)
And the winner of the ten dollar Amazon gift card is Khy!

Don't forget to forward your receipts to mypalamyATgmailDOTcom

Ohh, I'd love to donate a prize for this contest. What a fabulous idea! Let me know if you're looking for more prizes and I'll put my thinking cap on.

Oh my gosh, I can't believe I won. I'm excited about the book and the key ring. If you get close to the goal, I'll buy another copy for a giveaway. Thanks for all of your efforts, Amy!

This is great! What we really need is for someone with a bigger reach to pick this up and promote it. Here´s hoping!

Amy, I would really like to purchase this book, but I need to ask you a question first. If I buy the Kindle version, will it still count for you guys? I don't really care about prizes, I'm not in it for that, but I want Beth to get the credit towards her numbers and didn't know if the Kindle version would count. Kindle is easier for me personally, but if it won't count, I'll buy it hardcopy. If you could let me know, that'd be great. It'll probably be easier for me if you respond my email. My address is amandagignac[at]gmail[dot]com. Thanks!
