Epic 1000 Followers Giveaway -- Extension & News! {GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!}


I cannot thank you all enough for everything that you have done to help me promote this giveaway and my blog. You have gone beyond the call of duty. As a matter of fact, you've done way more than I have.

I haven't been around much lately. If you've read my personal Facebook or my Facebook fan page for this blog, then you'll know that last week was rough for me. On Monday, I found out that I had a type of cervical cancer. Fortunately for me, we caught it really early and I was able to have a surgery on Wednesday to have it removed. I'm at home going through recovery right now, which has been relatively painless... it's just been very uncomfortable. Sitting up (like I am right now to type this) is a challenge and not something I can do for long periods of time. In saying that, I know that physically I don't have the strength to sit up tonight and go through this giveaway, add up points, verify everything and pick winners... not including actually having to go through and e-mail winners then order everything as well.

So, I'm extending this contest until next Sunday, which is September 11th. I fully believe that I will be mostly recovered by then and it'll be just before I leave out of town to go visit my parents. Now, I know it's a little unfair to just extend a date after all you've gone through to enter... so I've decided to add some more opportunities for you to win.

I am adding FOUR more prize packs into the mix. These four prize packs will be mixed to have:

- a book of your choice OR a random book I have lying around here
- a package of swag
- OR a mix of both - a book (your choice or mine, it'll be random) AND a bunch of swag.

I will literally put all of the choices in a hat and select, so everything will be random and you won't know what you win until it shows up on your doorstep. Aaaand, I'm still keeping everything international.

So if you haven't entered, then you still have time. If you have already entered... don't worry, you're in the drawing for Prize Packs #7-#10 already. ;) As a matter of fact, the form will stay the same... everyone will just be automatically entered to win the new prize packs when they enter. If you win a book of your choice, I'll just pick a book from the list you made for Prize Pack #5.

Thanks for everything, guys!

I feel for ya Missy! I myself have been in that situation when I was 25. Unfortunately for me it wasn't caught quite as early as they thought, I had the conization of the cervix done in April 2000 but it had already spread further up so I had to have a hysterectomy in October 2000. But it's been almost 11 years now and I'm still doing good! =) Wishing you a very speedy recovery! *hugs* And thanks again for this awesome giveaway opportunity!

So glad it was caught early on! The last thing you need to be doing is worrying about an online giveaway - but it speaks volumes as to the person you are that you care about your readers and people you've never met in that way. This follower happens to think: Screw the giveaway - Look after yourself! x

Bonnie said...

Your strength and generosity astounds me! I am so happy to hear that your surgery went well and they were able to take you in so soon. Please let us think about you and not the other way around! ;)

Madeleine said...

Prayers, blessings and healing hugs sent your way Missy x
