Goodgrounds Approved Contests from Zenn and Vi!

Yeah, so Zenn here. That's right, that Zenn. You know, Zenn Bower from Elana Johnson's POSSESSION.

I'm a Special Forces recruit for the Goodgrounds. I follow rules. And I make sure other people do too. Today I'm going to be discussing Goodgrounds approved items every Citizen is allowed.

1. Hats. Must be worn at all times to prevent dangerous sunlight from discoloring your skin.

2. Transmissions. Must be plugged in for the mandatory eight hours each night. A device, such as a projection screen, for sending e-comms is permissible.

3. ID cards. Must be carried at all times, regularly updated, and turned over when requested by the authorities.

4. Long-sleeved shirts. Must be worn at all times, no matter the season. Goodies are required to be covered from ankle to hip, wrist to shoulder, and everywhere in between.


To celebrate the rules, I'm giving away a Goodgrounds approved device: an iPod shuffle! All you have to do is comment here to win!

There are three ways to get extra entries, and you'll need to fill out the Google form to be counted for them.
1. Make a Resistance video. Examples are found here, and you can comm the videos to Elana (elanajohnson(at)gmail) to be used on the fansite.
2. Purchase POSSESSION from July 8 - July 31. Any retailer, any purchase (ebooks too) from now until the end of the month.
3. Leave a review of Possession. Write a review and post it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Goodreads (or your favorite site) from July 8 - July 31.

This giveaway runs until July 31, and winners will be announced on Monday, August 1.

So. Are you a Goodgrounds approved?

Zenn, out.

----------

Yeah, Vi here. For my part of the contest, I'm going to be giving away a signed copy of Possession. But not here. That totally wouldn't make sense, because I don't want the Thinkers to know.

But I do want everyone to read the book.

So go over to Goodreads and enter to win over there.

Aaand, it looks like the Thinkers on GOODreads haven't approved the giveaway yet. Don't worry. We'll outsmart them. The contest runs until July 31, so you'll be able to slip in an entry once I have Jag hack into their system and approve the giveaway.

"Pending approval." Like that's gonna to happen. Oh... just got word: Jag is on it.

Thanks for the contest(s)! An iPod shuffle would be so cool, and I'll definitely be heading over to Goodreads for the signed copy of Possession (whenever Jag gets it approved, lol)

John Waverly said...

Awwww, man! I bought the book yesterday. I don't suppose Venn would move the starting date to help an overzealous follower? If not, I might need Jag to find me a good forger. :)

John Waverly said...

Aaaand, I know it's spelled Zenn. That's what I get for being online this early.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Awesome contest. Thanks for offering it.

Paul Greci said...

Great contest, Elana!!! :-)

B.E. Sanderson said...

Well, that leaves me out for the extra entries. I already bought Possession and I don't have video capabilities. So, I guess I'll just have to live with this one lonely entry. Still a great contest, Elana. =o)

Matthew MacNish said...

Whoa. Thane's allowing iPods in now? What if you have Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising" on it?

storyqueen said...

Sign me up, Zenn!!

(Kind of like Beam Me Up, Scotty...but different, you know?)

Way cool! And this (Vi's part of the contest) FINALLY got me to join Goodreads, which I'd been avoiding and/or not had enough time to join. ;o) Now I have to learn how to use it. Looking forward to reading your book someday (soon?)!!!!

Mandie Baxter said...

I love love love this book! Deep down I'm hoping there's another.

Marianne said...

I'd love a new shuffle! I'd plug into it instead of the nightly transmissions of my bickering children... ;o)

I'll step aside on the contest front, but I wish the best of luck to everyone who dives it. I'm popping over to buy POSSESSION for my college daughter's Kindle. I've gushed so much she says she'd pushing it to the top of her TBR list.

Theresa Milstein said...

What a cool prize!

I may need to follow these rules. Every time I'm in the sun for more than an hour, I get a rash on my arms. So hats and long-sleeved shirts are going to be a summer staple!

Thanks for the chance to win a Thinkers' Approved iPod, Zenn! (Do Special Forces Recruits take bribes, by the way? Just wondering . . . )
