I offered a book giveaway contest this past week and have not had a single contestant. Obviously there's been a failure of communication here, and I will now try to rectify it.
This contest is a multistep process, as follows:
Step One: I set it up and announce the rules.
Step Two: People enter the contest.
Step Three: I choose a winner and deliver the prize.
I've performed Step One. I cannot, however, perform Step Two, because it requires action by persons other than myself. Nor can I perform Step Three, because there is no way in this world that I can select a winner from among nonexistent contestants. I've actually given the matter some thought, but - nope. Can't do it.
So. Whoever you are and wherever you live, please - step up to the plate. Enter the contest! Maybe win a wonderful book! And if you don't win this time, I have a lot more giveaway contests in the pipeline, but someone has to win this one first! Don't make me come after you!!!!
