The MSFV Success Story Authors Twitter Contest

It's true!  I topped 2000 followers on Twitter over the weekend, so the contest is officially underway.

Hooray!!

Here's how it works:

Eleven authors whose success stories are either directly or indirectly related to their participation in a contest on Miss Snark's First Victim have graciously offered prizes in order to celebrate my having reaching 2000 followers.  Over the next few days, I will be tweeting the opening of contest windows.  To enter, you will have to tweet using @AuthoressAnon and the hashtag #authoress and within a designated time period.

Focus of the tweets: WHY I LOVE MISS SNARK'S FIRST VICTIM

When each tweet window closes, I will randomly pick a winner from all eligible tweets.

If you want to play, make sure you are following me on Twitter and keep an eye out for contest announcements this week!

  4. Congrats on reaching 2000, Authoress. My poor dial-up can barely handle blogging, so the twitter site is out for me. But congratulations all the same.

    julietruekingsley.com: Ouch. Hope it heals quickly for you.

  6. The contest sounds fun, but I don't think this is an accomplishment. Getting people to follow you on twitter isn't hard.

    Getting this many people to follow your blog however, this is an accomplishment.
