Hello readers! We survived our first week of February. Or maybe it's just me because, after getting hit with a stomach virus at the end of January, I now finally feel well enough to eat... normal food. No more toast, rice, and saltines. Hurrah!
AND JUST IN TIME! Because I have had Big Plans for this month. If I have anything to do with it, the rest of February is only going to get better.
I'm excited to announce that I will be hosting a few giveaways this month... and they all start TODAY!
No matter the giveaway, they all begin today (February 9th, 2016) and run until the end of the month, February 29th, 2016.
Who Can Enter?
ANYONE! These giveaways are open internationally and in the US.
How Do I Enter the Giveaway(s)?
Depends on the social media. My giveaways are on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
"Like" my page and leave a comment on my giveaway post. The winner will be chosen at random.
Follow me and Retweet my giveaway tweet. The winner will be chosen at random.
Okay, so since I LOVE Instagram way too much, this giveaway is more involved. There will be THREE winners. Why? Because I'm running three different photo contests. You can enter one or all of them:
1. Post a Valentine's Day inspired photo with the words "Love Fortunes and Other Disasters" and "Kimberly Karalius" included in some way, shape, or form. Example below:
2. Post a Valentine's Day inspired photo with your copy of Love Fortunes and Other Disasters.
3. Post a photo of of First Kisses and Other Misfortunes - of you reading it, your favorite page, anything! It's up to you!
In order to be entered into the contest(s), you MUST use the hashtag #thegrimbaudlife and PLEASE use these additional appropriate hashtags like #kimberlykaralius #LoveFortunesandOtherDisasters #FirstKissesandOtherMisfortunes #SwoonReads
I will choose one winner from each category, but I'll also be able to feature everyone's photos who entered on my blog (as long as you use the hashtags, my friends, haha).
What do I win?
Now we're talking, right?
Every winner, no matter the giveaway, wins this totally awesome pack of Grimbaud book swag and other magical Valentine's Day goodies. Let me break it down:
Left to Right:
1. Big stickers! The one on the right is inspired by Nico and Martin's novella, First Kisses and Other Misfortunes.
2. A small postcard (front and back)
3. Two different bookmarks. The one on the right is designed like a train ticket!
4. A personalized, autographed copy of Love Fortunes and Other Disasters!
5. (Not pictured) A bunch of Valentine's Day/Grimbaud inspired goodies!
What are you waiting for?
Regardless of how you feel about the Most Romantic Month of the year, it COULD be potentially much more awesome if you enter these giveaways. Take a page out of Fallon the gang's book (har-har) and be a little rebellious.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments!
