Because it’s Thursday I’ve decided to create a sweepstakes or contest for freelance writers – well, for the readers of this blog anyway; I have no way to tell if you’re really a freelance writer so just being here is enough of a qualification to enter the drawing.
Okay, not just because it’s Thursday, although that seems like a pretty good reason to have some fun.
I also want to generate some traffic, maybe pick up some new subscribers to the free newsletter (you get a free ebook when you subscribe) and generally see what happens.
Oh yes, I have another motive – I’ll soon be offering the 21 lesson video class called, Get Your Book Written With Vision and Spirit (another reason to subscribe to the newsletter so you get notification about the class) and I’m doing some seed planting.
All good reasons for running a sweepstakes I think, although because it’s Thursday may be my favorite.
The sweepstakes prize
I get a lot of questions and mutterings about how to actually get some writing done. So I wrote an ebook for freelance writers who want some suggestions – turned out I had 60 tips that pointed to ways to get writing done. Hence the title, 60 Tips For Getting The Writing Done. You can get details about this book here – heck you can even buy the book there if you want.
I sell this book for mere $9.95, but when I think about what’s actually in it for writers, it seems to me that if it gets you writing regularly, it’s pretty darn close to priceless.
For fun I’ll throw in two other ebooks I’ve written about writing, but I’m keeping those titles a secret for now. Suffice it to say that the total price of the 3 ebooks adds up to $25.85 in US dollars.
The winner will be notified by me via email and will be given instructions on how to download all three books. So make sure you leave a valid email when you enter.
Enough! How do I enter this contest?
Entering this contest is simple enough. Just make a (polite – I reserve the right to delete any comment that isn’t in good taste which will remove the commenter from the contest and make them ineligible to win.) comment about freelance writing or ask a question about freelance writing in the comment section of this blog post below. Yes, if the comment or question isn’t related to freelance writing that comment becomes ineligible too and I’ll remove it.
One entry per person please.
How long to I have to enter?
You have until Monday, November 18th at 8 a.m. Pacific Time to enter and qualify for the contest. Btw, there’s no cost to enter. You’ll need to be sure the comment has a valid email address so I can notify the winner.
How will you choose the winner?
The winner will be chosen randomly. I’ll go to Research Randomizer, enter the number of legitimate comments and ask it to pick one. I’ll notify the winner by email and if it’s okay with them, announce their name here. If they want to remain anonymous, that’s okay, I’ll just announce that someone won.
BTW, I won’t be responding to these comments – I’d only confuse myself trying to figure out the count, but don’t be surprised if some of your questions show up here with answers as posts.
I think that’s it, but if something isn’t clear either email me or ask that question in comments (yes, that kind of question will count too.)
And it would be great if you shared this post with your network… thanks!
