Happy Release Date to Kay Bratt! A Thread Unbroken is now available! (Winners Announced)

Written by Kay on . Posted in Contests and Give-A-Ways

I’m happy to say that finally, after a year of hard work, A Thread Unbroken is now available on Amazon.com. Get it now!

And as a celebration for the release, it’s also time for my annual Christmas giveaway. This year, the first prize winner will receive a Nischi doll, valued at over $100. (If an overseas winner is drawn, they must agree to pay shipping to receive.)

The second prize winner will receive signed print copies of Chasing China and A Thread Unbroken, autographed to the name of your choice so you can use them as Christmas gifts!

 

The fourth place winner will receive a signed print copy of Mei Li and the Wise Laoshi, autographed to the child of your choice!

And I even have something for last place! The final winner will recive a keychain with the Chinese characters for Daddy!

Now we get to the HOW TO WIN section! These are some great prizes, if I do say so myself. And I’m happy to do it because my readers mean everything to me. It’s with your help that I am able to market to a wider audience. Each time you read my books, write a review, post a link…you are doing me an amazing favor. So this giveaway is my thanks to you.

But I still need you! So here’s the rundown:

Do the following, then comment on this post that you’ve followed each step and to enter you into the drawing!

1. Go to my website home page and join my new release newsletter. I promise not to bombard you with emails or share your email address! The join box is in the top left side bar here. I’ll be sent a message that you joined and when future books are released, I’ll send out a news alert.

2. Since junior high we’ve all wanted to be liked, and facebook has given us an adult version of that cruel taunting. So, please LIKE me at my Kay Bratt page here!

3. Because A Thread Unbroken is brand new and I need all the help I can get, the last task is to post the Amazon link to it on your own wall or blog with some sort of short message like, “Kay Bratt’s new book just came out!” or whatever….as long as it’s friendly and it’s not something like, “Don’t read this because Kay Bratt is making me do this.”  *wink*

That’s it! Then come back and comment below that you’ve done the 3 tasks and want your name entered into the drawing. I’ll use random.org to draw winners on December 14, so I can get the prizes to you in time for Christmas. (Can’t guarantee!)

BONUS!

As promised, if you have written reviews for any of my books on Amazon.com, you will get your name in an extra time for each review. As you may not know, reviews are like gold to authors, and I appreciate the time you take to give your honest opinion on each title. Your words also help me improve! So note in your comment if you get bonus chances for reviews and again, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your world in some small way.

*UPDATE TO ANNOUNCE WINNERS!*

Winner of Nischi Doll is Carly Parks, commented November 30, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    I have done all 3 tasks, please enter me (when possible not for the first prize as I live overseas and my daughter hates dolls but loves books).
    I’m very curious to read your newest ‘baby’ as I enjoyed all your previous ones (and I made a review but that was a long time ago).
    Silent Tears is well known here in Belgium as well. Congratulations with your success!
    Love,
    Terry

    Kay, when I saw your name pop up on my computer, I thought I was receving notice that my pre-order was on its way. I was introduced to your writings about a year ago and have read every book you have written. I would absolutely love to have a chance to win the doll; but, more importantly, I need for you to know what an impact on so many lives that you are having for making the needs of these precious children known. I have dontated to those children ever since having read your books and am in total tears with every word I read of your experiences in China. So glad that the timing of the release of your last book is at Chritmas time. It will make a wonderful stocking stuffer for several readers in my family!!!
