That's How I Blog! And a little Bribery



Nicole of Linus's Blanket, a super cool girl if I do say so myself, has started a fab new Blog Talk Radio program where she interviews fellow book bloggers. I thought this sounded like a cool idea and all, but when I realized how much FUN it was I was sold. Now I'm frantically trying to read all the books in time for 20 minute book club, a segment of the show where she chats about a book with her guest for that week.

Anyway, Nicole will be hosting me next Tuesday and I'm a little nervous no one will show up. It's the Tuesday right before Thanksgiving and I suspect many of you will be busy traveling and just generally enjoying your lives with family and friends. So to bribe you I'm doing a one day giveaway.

The book Nicole and I will be chatting about is Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. If you are a fast reader with time to read the book this weekend and have next Tuesday evening free at 9 PM EST/6 PM PST to follow along with the discussion, then this giveaway is for you! To enter, you must email Nicole a question she can ask me next Tuesday night by tomorrow night at 6 PM EST/3 PM PST. Nicole will randomly choose a winner and announce them on air during her show with the fabulous Michelle of Galleysmith. Then and this is very important, you must get your address to me by 6:00 AM PST on Wednesday so that I can make sure the book gets to you on Friday. If you do not, you forfeit the prize! Sorry, but this is a US only giveaway.

So let's review:
1) You email a question to Nicole at nicoleATlinussblanketDOTcom for her to ask me next week. Just put Question for My Friend Amy in subject line.
2) She'll announce the winner tomorrow on her show with Michelle. (and I will post)
3) Winner gets their address to me, reads the books this weekend, and joins in the conversation next Tuesday during my show!

Fingers crossed we get a few entries!

Now...think up some questions and let's have fun!

Amy - I tried to send a question but the mail returned. You have an extra "es" in the e-mail.
Have fun at the interview! I know you will do Great!

J.T. Oldfield said...

So far, I've been unable to actually listen to the talk shows when they are happening. My best "alone" time is in the middle of the day when the kids are at school, so I listen to it after the fact. We'll see what happens next week, since the kids are out of school! You will be great. The only thing I would say is that if it were me, I would make sure and have a couple "off the cuff" things to ramble on about if perhance Nicole gets disconnected (which seems to happen)! Crazy electronics! Good luck!

You'll have a lot of fun doing that program, Amy! And yes, be prepared. I remember doing one and the other two guests did not show! It was just me and the host for one solid hour. Talk about pressure!

You don't need to bribe me to listen! I'm sure there will be a huge crowd joining me in the chat room - we love to hear your giggle.

Way too much fun to pass up and I don't own Shiver yet!

Dawn @ sheIsTooFondOfBooks said...

I like your approach! I won't enter the giveaway, since, like Sandy, my 'alone' time tends to be in the morning, and I can't be sure I can call in .... BUT, I'll email a question (or two or three) to Nicole.

Have fun, Amy!

Okay, so I totally missed this post until today. I'll have a bunch of people in town, but I'm going to try to convince my mom to come and listen with me, since she's met you. As you know, I've bought the book and already finished it, so I'm determined to be there for you!

Sorry I won't be able to listen in, but have fun!
