5 Acres & A Dream The Book GIVEAWAY!

It's been ages since I've done a giveaway! Are you game? For this one, I'm partnering with Permies.com, and I'll be giving away not one, but four copies of 5 Acres & A Dream The Book!

The giveaway will run from today (Feb. 17) through Friday, Feb. 21st. It is open to members of Permies Forums, who will be hosting the event. But it's free to join, and I promise your membership will be well worth it. If you haven't visited before, click here to go and check it out.

Here's how you enter for a chance to win one of those four copies:
  • First register to join, here. All that's required is your email address, a real sounding name, and a password. That's it.
  • To enter the giveaway, you need to do two things.
    • Sign up for the Daily-ish Email. In "My Profile" go to "Email Preferences" and tic the Daily-ish Email box. Hit "Submit" at the bottom of the page.
    Clicking image should biggify.
    • Head on over to the Permies Homesteading Forum and join in! You can do that by commenting on any of the existing homesteading threads or by starting your own. You get an entry for every comment, so the more you join in, the better your chances!

Caveat: You can comment on any of the Permies forums, but only those in the Homesteading forum will count as entries for the giveaway.

BIG HINT: How to increase your chances of winning! Permies likes and rewards good quality comments and posts. That means that positive, informative comments have the best chance of winning. Photos and videos that contribute to the topic are encouraged and welcome! Comments like "Enter me" or "I'd like to win this book" don't carry much weight in the algorithms. To increase your chances of winning, join in any of the homesteading topics and share your experiences to encourage others. Or start new threads with your own homesteading questions. I'll be surprised if you don't get good answers. This is a very knowledgeable bunch of dedicated folks.

You can read the Permies reviews of 5 Acres & A Dream The Book here. The drawing takes place this Friday evening or Saturday morning. A link to the winners will be announced through the Daily-ish Email. If you win, you have 24 hours to respond with a mailing address to receive your prize.

Optional: One last thing. Please come say "Hi" to me on this thread, which officially kicks off the giveaway. It doesn't count as an entry, but I'd love to know you've joined in and wish you good luck.

I hope to see you there!

UPDATE: Congratulations to the winners!

Aw shucks! I have a copy already.

We have had a copy for a while also and have read it aloud together. Good read!

Leigh said...

Jo, hang in there. They want to do giveaways for my other books as well!

Mama Pea, thank you for telling me that! It makes me happy to know you enjoyed it that way. :) I hope my upcoming Sequel will be as enjoyable.

Cockeyed Jo said...

But Leigh! I've got those too. WAAAH!

Leigh said...

Jo, I have to admit that that makes me feel kinda good. Hopefully, my sequel will be out by early summer and that will go up for giveaway too.

Margy, sometimes I don't think we do keep up with it! :)
