NLYG Giveaway *Yay!*

So, Never Let You Go has been published. We’re more than a week late but better late than never, right? And I say ‘we’ because ‘we’ are all in this together, not so? Lol.

This is th16, and it surely won’t be the last… heck no!

In line with my plans for 2016, there will be eBooks giveaways and discounted purchases for every eBook published this year. There will be no stone-written method for these Giveaways, each eBook will have its own style. The only common ground is that these Giveaways will be won by commenting-readers.

Now don’t no one go saying TM is up to some mean tricks. Uh-uh, that’s not the case at all. Now, I love you all and dearly appreciate every one of you who opens Life and Spices.com and reads my stories. I do; and that God’s own truth.

But this is an e-family. And unlike ‘live-families’, we only know one another when we relate by our written words. And one can only appreciate ‘rightly’ people they relate with. The only way I know anyone of you is when you comment. That is how we’ve managed to build this e-relationship and that is how we are keeping it going.

So, not dissing anyone but GiveaESo, not dissing anyone but Giveaways are for commenting-readers. Gbam!

Straight to the agenda for today’s Blog Mataz: Never Let You Go Giveaway

Now there are only 2 giveaways that will be recurrent, whatever the genre of story and whatever its word-length; and that is:

  1. Author’s Copy Giveaway
  2. Dedication Copy Giveaway

When a writer publishes a print version of his/her book, they are presented with some copies of their books; number depends on Publishing house. These copies are for the writer/author to do with as they please. So, I thought about it and decided that as an e-Published writer, I ought to have that ‘author’s privilege’ and someone (or some persons) ought to be benefitting from same privilege. And that is how ‘Author’s Copy Giveaway’ came to birth.

I will give out my ‘author’s rights copy’ to whomever I choose. May be a reader… may not be. May be a one-time commenter… may be regular commenter. The choice is mine.

Now ‘Dedication Copy Giveaway’ requires no explanation. Whomever a particular story is dedicated to (reader here or not), they get a copy.

As for other giveaway recipients. It will differ for each published story. But only one criteria will remain static, a free-copy winner can only win TWICE in a year. If I am picking Top Commenters of a particular month for instance and say ‘reader-A’ wins it in January and then wins again in March; that will be all for 2016. No more free-copy wins for that reader. Instead if they continue to win, they will fall (for the rest of that year) into discounted-copy winners group.

Putting such a reader in that group is my way of not discouraging anyone. We all must win… na wetin sef, na only you waka come *rme*.

So who are the Winners of Never Let You Go Giveaway?

Let us begin with the criteria for winning.

  1. Author’s Copy Giveaway
  2. Dedication Copy Giveaway
  3. Top Commenter for the month of January Giveaway
  4. 2nd Top Commenter for the month of January Giveaway

The above persons will get free copies of Never Let You Go sent directly to their inboxes.

For this story, I am doing a two-part discounted-copy Giveaway, So…

N100 Discount:

The readers winning this are the 3rd, 4th and 5th Top Commenters for the month of January.

N50 Discount:

This will be won by the 6th, 7th and 8th Top Commenter for January.
In the month of January, I made 22 posts and I believe in ‘A’ being the mark for excellence. And ‘A’ is a minimum of 70% score. Only two readers went above 7o% comments for January. Others fell below and a whole lot of others, dangerously below… dem be wan sink sef… shuo, no be titanic be dis o *hehehe*.

I figured I should reward 6th, 7th and 8th position commenters because of the poor number of comments In January. So without further waste of ‘our’ precious time, let me announce the Never Let You Go Giveaway winners…

  • Author’s Copy Giveaway – Adefunke.

I chose her as my very first giveaway winner because she was the very first reader to follow me all the way from Nairaland to Alifediary… and she is still here with me. Adefunke, the way I appreciate you, eh?… You no go understand. Thank you and may God bless you.

  • 2nd Top Commenter for the month of January –

This is another all-round commenter. From the moment she arrived Alifediary, she’d strived to be a part of the family in every way. She made 17 comments out of the 22 posts. Thank you, Toyenlon. And many thanks for all other ways you give me support.

Just keep clicking… from title to price, from price to checkout, from checkout to SimplePay site, from SimplePay straight to Interswitch and there you do your payment. Otito.
