Current Giveaways 4/1

We had a ton of giveaways end last week as it was the end of the month. Perhaps you even won something. We topped off at 30 active giveaways at one time last month and we're now down under 20. One ends tonight with three more ending on Wednesday night. We have at least two new ones starting tonight. The Its Raining Money giveaway for $1,000 cash (two prizes of $500) has been delayed until 4/4.

When entering giveaways, do please make sure you only check off the tasks/options you performed. I do my best to verify successful completion of items for the potential winning entries. For instance, tools like allow one to easily see if you actually follow the sponsor on Twitter like you say you did if that happens to be the winning entry.

Remember to watch our Twitter feed and Facebook for last minute reminders to enter. Google+, too. The Instagram presence is slowly growing. I have yet to start promoting the giveaways/reviews there but I hope to figure out how best to do that.

Here's a chance to win a Kindle Fire, win a signed book, and name a character in the author's next book. For some reason, I find the last part of the prize the most interesting.

Kindle Fire
Linda A. Cadose, author of "The Hidden Chamber in the Great Sphinx" and "The Underwater Pyramid in the Bermuda Triangle", is generously giving away the hottest and sought after tech item around...A Kindle Fire!

If that is not enough, she is also giving away a signed copy of one of her books already published, and the winner gets to name a character in her new book currently being written. WOW!

Visionary Bri is at it, again, with another one-of-a-kind promotion.
Enter the Desert Rogue Giveaway.

The Etsy shop, Desert Rogue Designs, has offered our winners three different prizes!

1st Place
Any item of their choosing from the shop.
The average value of these pieces is $100!

2nd Place

a 50% off coupon to Desert Rogue Designs

3rd Place
a 25% off coupon to Desert Rogue Designs

Desert Rogue Designs makes awesome leather belts with all kinds of neat pockets on them. If you're a Rennie, Larper, Burner, artist or just someone who needs a couple of extra pockets (with some sweet style thrown in), these belts are the ones for you.
I love being able to support creative, fun individual and businesses!
This is a photo of the one they sent me, Visionary Bri.
