For You: Signed Book Giveaway Today

by Violet Blue on December 15, 2010

Best Women's Erotica 2010

UPDATE: Wait for the next post at 7pm PST to comment and win! The first ten commenters on the NEXT post “TinyNIbbles Commenters Are Sexy” will win :D

Hi! You know – I adore you, dear readers. But in case you didn’t know, I asked Cleis Press if I could give some of you signed copies of my books, and they said yes! It’s my wish to show you my deep appreciation for hanging out with me and being supportive. It’s not one of those giveaways where someone is trying to get you to join, follow, or trick you into spamming people with a sales link. I just want to send you a book to say a very sincere thank you.

At 6pm PST (9pm EST) today, I’ll do the first giveaway on Twitter @violetblue. If you’re on the service, watch my Twitter account @violetblue for the 6pm tweet saying what to do. The first ten responses get signed books, shipped to you from Cleis Press.

If you miss the opportunity, one hour later (7pm PST/10pm EST) I will tell you here on my blog how ten more readers can get a second chance to win.

One book per person; I have copies of Smart Girl’s Guide to Porn, Smart Girl’s Guide to the G-Spot, Seal It With A Kiss, Lust: Erotic Fantasies for Women, Girls on Top, Just Watch Me, Ultimate Guide to Fellatio (new edition, including Mary Roach), Ultimate Guide to Cunnilingus (new edition with Margaret Cho), Best Women’s Erotica 2009, Best Women’s Erotica 2010.

I can’t 100% guarantee which book you will get, but think of your top three picks to better your chances of getting one you want :)

BIG THANKS to indie, women-run Cleis Press for not only publishing me, but letting me give their books away to you! If you’re on Twitter and want to keep up with my books, please do follow them or friend them on Facebook or give them a quick “like“.

Well, dang, this is what I get for not refreshing tinynibbles more often.

4 steven December 15, 2010 at 8:38 pm

Violet, I can’t wait for your talk! Sounds like a blast. I hope you bring some more of your NSFW stickers too. Those are very popular.

5 pat December 15, 2010 at 7:23 pm

I would love Seal it With a Kiss…

6 Carly December 15, 2010 at 7:16 pm

Super, super sad that I missed the giveaway on the post after this! I was only moments off! I love your blog and your energy and its just all fantastic.

7 chris December 15, 2010 at 7:05 pm

Violet Blue is awesome and my girlfriend would love “the smart girls guide to porn”.

TinyNIbbles Commenters Are Sexy ;)

Steven, I am going to SXSW for 2011. I’m really excited: this will be the first year for the “Health” category and I’ve been given the green light for a solo talk!

It’s going to be “Sexual Survival for Geeks” and I’m going to have geek sex survival kits for talk attendees and I’m going to make it the funnest talk yet.

In case you can’t tell, I really can’t wait :)

11 steven December 15, 2010 at 6:40 pm

Are you going back to SxSW this year?

12 Lord_drachenblut December 15, 2010 at 6:35 pm

As always Violet you continue to out due yourself

13 Roxanna December 15, 2010 at 6:34 pm

I wanna win!

14 Scott M December 15, 2010 at 6:34 pm

I’m posting a comment ahead of time, because I will not be Lucy’d again! :)

Also, torn between the Kiss and Cunnilingus book. I think I’m going to be buying at least one tonight, no matter what.

15 Anneke December 15, 2010 at 6:29 pm

And you know what they say about the number 42….

16 violet December 15, 2010 at 6:18 pm

You’re all ready – the NEXT post, at 7PM, will be for winning books. This post is just for announcing the contest and providing details. :D Wait for the next post… It’s in 42 minutes!

17 SithLordGirl December 15, 2010 at 6:09 pm

Hi! I’ve been reading your blog for a while, but I’ve never commented before. Is it bad form for my first comment to be for a contest? I’m interested in winning Best Women’s Erotica 2010 (because of the sassy girl in nothing but heels on the cover). :3

18 Bubbles December 15, 2010 at 6:08 pm

I can’t wait to read some of your stuff!

19 violet December 15, 2010 at 5:41 pm

SCV – absolutely not – you don;t need to have an FB or Twitter account to win. The second round of giveaways (at 7pm PST) will be here on my blog and all you need is to be a commenter – and I just approved you, so you’re in!

We”ll be shipping everywhere.

If people who miss out and leave a comment are okay with it, I’d love to send you all a present via email… Let me know!

20 Tiffany December 15, 2010 at 4:44 pm

Sadly, I will be facilitating the second meeting of Possibilities: Calgary Bisexual/Pansexual Community from 7-10 MST, and will miss both chances. But it’s worth it, and I am planning a Cleis Press order as a Christmas present for myself anyway. They won’t be signed, alas, but they’ll still be mine!

21 SCV December 15, 2010 at 4:39 pm

Does this mean one would have to have a twitter or facebook account?

22 England December 15, 2010 at 4:12 pm

Heh, sadly this AF guy will not be able to follow this. Since he’s in the UK himself (yes, my last name is England, just like the country I’m in), and the time difference is +9 I believe(?), I’ll just look forward to seeing who all won. Good luck to those who enter!!!

23 funk December 15, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Great !! International followers can participate?

24 Cindy Yandle December 15, 2010 at 11:56 am

Dear Violet, I’ve been especially naughty this year. All I want for Christmas is a signed copy of one of your “best of” women’s erotica anthologies. Thank you, Ms. Blue.
