best debut

Award nomination and a giveaway!

It’s great to close out the year on a note like this.

Click the badge to take you to the poll, if you are so inclined (in case you forget, it’s under ‘Best Debut’)! I’m happy simply to be nominated; I didn’t expect it and it’s a really awesome thing for my first book, especially considering the company I’m keeping.

Next up: the long-promised giveaway.

Photobucket

I will send a signed copy of Signal to Noise anywhere, with a personalized greeting of your choice.

Rules for the giveaway:

1. The giveaway is open to sign up through Tuesday, January 15th at midnight Pacific time.
2. Sign up by commenting here on my blog entry. Include your name or a pseudonym, and your email so that I can contact you if you win. Your email needs to be accurate so that I can get in contact with you for a shipping address for the book!
3. You can get an extra “entry” by:
– Following my blog. (Let me know what your username is if it’s not obvious.)
– Following my Twitter, @TalyaAndor (again, let me know your username).
– Following my Tumblr, http://talya-andor.tumblr.com/ (just for good measure – yep, you guessed it, tell me your username).
– Edited to add another category: Goodreads! If you are following me as a fan on Goodreads, you get another entry. Annnnd you’d need to tell me your name on there too.

I will count your name once for a comment here, and an additional time for each follow.

On Wednesday after the sign-up closes, I’ll put names in a spreadsheet and give the number range to a Random Number generator which will choose the winner.

Thanks for reading, and happy New Year! Stay tuned for word on upcoming stories, and I’ve got stories to rec.
