Blog Tour & Contest

Spring is almost here, and I'm kicking off my "blog tour." Just like a book tour, that means making appearances in other people's blogs. As an extra incentive, I'm going to hold a contest. Anyone who includes a mention of my book, "The Art of Life," (with the links below) in his or her blog will be entered into a contest to win a free, autographed copy of my book.

Alyce's bookstore: http://www.alycewilson.com/books/

Excerpt from the book: http://www.alycewilson.com/2010/11/the-art-of-life-available-now/

Those who make a simple mention will receive one contest entry. Those who do a more extensive entry (such as an interview with me, a longer piece that relates to my book, or a "guest blog entry" written by me) will receive two contest entries. Those who mention me in multiple entries will receive one contest entry per blog entry. I will, of course, give entries to the few people who have interviewed me already.

To enter, post your entry and then share the link with me, either through posting a comment or by sending me a private message, or by emailing me.

The contest runs until April 30, after which point a winner will be selected randomly. Feel free to also share information about this contest with friends, family, coworkers, or random people you meet on the street.

Thanks and good luck!

ETA: In order to give more people a chance to participate, I'm extending the deadline to May 31.

Do LJs count as blogs? I know that might sound like a daft question, but I always think of blogger as being blogs and everything else as, well, everything else!

Yes, LJ count as a blog. I know that many people also use them as a way to participate in communities, but essentially, it's a blog.

In that case, sign me up. Would you like to be interviewed or would you like to guest post on my LJ?

And signal duly boosted:

I'd be happy to do a guest post. Any particular topic you'd like me to address?

Hmmm. I can think of a few, so feel free to choose whichever inspires you the most:

1. What LJ means to you and why we should stay here despite all the recent kerfuffle.

2. How you got into editing and the different skills required from an editor as opposed to a writer.

3. What you've learned from life the hard way and what you hope to teach your son without him learning in the same manner.

4. If you had to do it all over again, what you would do differently and why (or if you'd do it the same, why).

5. What you've learned about different lifestyles because of LJ.

6. How you feel being an older first time mum shapes your parenting and how you think it would have been different had you given birth 10, 20 years earlier.

I'll give it some thought and get you something, hopefully next week.

I will happily participate in this, too, if you don't mind posting in my lj! :D

I'd be happy to. Do you have any suggestions for what I should write?

Oh! Different idea! Noticed your Alice icon. How about something Alice in Wonderland related instead. :D
