Confessions of an (Avon) Addict
Happy Sunday! And welcome one, welcome all, to my stop on the Avon Addicts Blog Hop.
Back in...February? I think it was, I put in my name and information to apply to be an Avon Addict. I thought, no way was I going to be picked. I bet there were so many names, so many entrants, I didn't have a shot. But hey, it didn't hurt to try, right?
My efforts paid off.
Boy, was I ever shocked and stoked! Me! An Avon Addict! I mean, I didn't need the 'official' title to be an addict, because let's face it, I am regardless, but it was an honor to be the first batch of Avon Addicts. I was able to be part of some neat things- I got ARC's before they were released to the general public, I got extra copies of books for giveaways and spreading the word...what more could I want? Well, besides a million dollars, that is. But, that wasn't what Avon Addicts was about. So, no million dollars from that end. Better luck next time! *Wink*
It had been an amazing experience. i met some new friends, was introduced to new authors, and had more chances to talk about something I adore- BOOKS! Some of the swag prizes I received were so amazing and wonderful, especially one that came in my last package.
It pays off to spread the word. And it's not something I wasn't doing before. I love to give book recommendations. I love talking books in general, so this was an added benefit. I'm proud to have had the experience of being an Avon Addict, and it's nothing I will ever forget. Be sure that I will do my duty to help promote and support authors as long as I am physically able, and when I'm not, well, I'll still find a way. I'm that darn stubborn.
Now, I do have a giveaway for you. THREE print books. And do me a favor, if you win, and already have these? Spread the word, give them out, in a true Avon Addict fashion. :)
So, one lucky commenter gets these three books. Please, US residents only. (Sorry! No offense to anyone else, I promise!)
