Contests, Anyone?

Maybe because I write a lot of paranormal romance, or maybe just because I love Halloween, I tend to participate in a lot of contests in October. Since I'm totally brain-dead today and can't think of anything clever to blog about, I thought I might just share some of these. Click the images above each listing for more information.

1. Romance Books '4' Us: Grand prize: a $50 bookstore gift card. Runs now-Oct. 30


2. Here Be Magic: Grand Prize: a Kindle, loaded with a bunch of books and a basket of author goodies. Runs now-Oct. 31
 
3. Sam Cheever's Annual Trick Or Treating Party: This one runs Oct. 15-30, and the grand prize is usually a tablet and a ton of other goodies.

So tell me, what do you think of reader contests? Love 'em? Hate 'em? Enter like crazy or only once in a while? If you're an author, do you enter other authors' contests? And finally, any other great ones to share with the rest of us?

Hi, Cindy!
Cool! Thanks for the heads-up on these contests! I like contests even though I enter every once in a while. And I have entered other authors' contests. I'm a reader first and I love to win books!!

Here's a great contest to share! My RWA chapter, Southern Magic, has a month long Blog Blitz going on. Every day is a chance to win something like gift cards or books, but the ultimate grand prize is the Kindle Fire up for grabs. Each time a person comments, they receive another entry for the Kindle.
