This is a blog about my obsessions, whatever they may be.

March 17, 2010



I know of 2 people who’ve actually read what I’ve posted on this blog.

One is @GirrlitsBooks – who’s commented a couple of times and the other is Alison Kent, who kindly linked to my post yesterday.

So to commemorate that event, I’m going to run a contest.


I’ll buy a lucky winner a copy of any Alison Kent novel, provided that I can get them through Fictionwise or the Book Depository, and provided the geographic restrictions (DRM or postage) in both cases are met.

I can choose for you – I think I’ve read upwards of three-quarters of what she’s published solo (as in not in anthology) – or you can have your pick.


Ways to enter:

  1. Comment here on this post.
  2. Follow me on Blogger.
  3. Follow @emilycardinal on Twitter.
  4. Retweet my contest
  5. Email me – I won’t keep your email address for mailing lists or anything like that – with Contest in the subject line.

You can do any and all of them.

But here’s a bonus: if you do all 5, you get double the entries. And as there are very few people who read this blog, if you get double the entries, you’ll probably win.


The contest ends this Sunday. If you win and you entered by 1, 2 or 5, I’ll email you, otherwise, Twitter it is.

Good luck! 


  1. *frowns* I don't know how to follow you on Blogger! Usually there's a button thingy that I can click on the sidebar. I followed you on Twitter, but my TweetDeck is acting up this morning, so I have to make sure the "follow" click actually went through.

    Thanks for hosting the contest! I love Alison Kent, and I have a new blog to add to my blogroll now! :)

  2. So glad to find a new blog! Isn't Alison Kent fabulous?

    Have a great week and great to meet you!
