A Sad Day

I’m a bit sad. One of my daily routines ends today: my daily dose of getting to know the full Scotty. As many of you know, today marks the end of Scott Nicholson’s 90-day Blog Tour. This tour has become as much a part of my daily routine as having my morning coffee. So I’m a little sad to see it come to an end. But, alas, there is that saying, “All good things must come to an end.”

Was Scott’s blog tour a success? I think so. At least it was for me. I got the chance to visit and connect with many blogs and bloggers that I probably never would have otherwise. I was able to find out all kinds of cool and interesting things about one of my favorite authors. And probably the thing I am most excited about, I was introduced to a number of talented indie writers and some awesome books. My TBR pile grew by leaps and bounds.

My most memorable moment from the tour happened pretty early on, when I found out that Scott actually gave away some of his teeth as a promotional stunt for one of his books. I remember thinking, My god, what kind of person does that! That’s probably one of the wildest things I’ve heard someone do to try and attract (repel?) readers.

So in honor of Scott’s successful completion of 90 days of blogging craziness, I’m going to give away two of Scott’s real (paper :P) books, The Red Church (autographed) and Thank You for the Flowers, to one lucky winner. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post stating your favorite Scott moment from the tour. If you didn’t follow the tour, feel free to enter anyway. Just leave some sort of comment, like your favorite food, favorite color, sleeping habits, etc. I’d love for you to have the chance to experience Scott’s work. You have until 11:59 P.M. Friday, December 3rd to enter. At that time, I’ll randomly pick a winner. I'll announce the winner on my blog, but make sure you leave some way for me to contact you. Unfortunately for my international visitors, I can only ship books to U.S. locations. But please feel free to leave a comment.

Though I came to Scott's tour later I'm going to miss it, too. My memory is crap but I loved the zombie video where he came at the camera at the end. Made me laugh & what more can you ask? But really, I loved it all. And I LOVE paper books! :-P

I know, I spent part of the day crying my eyes out because the tour is finished. I reserved a spot at the rehab center, in case of possible withdrawal symptoms. Perhaps, I'll try to squelch the need with Swiss chocolate. Anyway, it was fun and informative and interesting. I already have both of those books, so I'll leave my spot to someone else.
Keep in touch!

I think my favorite part of the tour was when I decided to buy a copy of Gave Conditions. Does that count?

I enjoyed the tour and I am always interested in discovering what makes people tick. This is what Scott's tour did for me. I have no particular favorite moment because I enjoyed it all.

Congrats! I'll send you an e-mail to verify your address.

Thanks to the others who entered the drawing. Be looking out for other giveaways this month. I've got a big one coming up. :)
