AWESOME CONTEST 1 - 8 Ways to Enter

There are eight day until The Deathday Letter officially comes out so I thought it'd be fun to give you eight way to enter to win a signed copy.

So here's the deal:  If you want to be entered to win, you have to do at least ONE of the following eight things.  You can do more if you want.  Once you've done it, tweet at me (@ShaunieDarko), email me (, or leave me a comment letting me know what you've done.  Then next Monday I'll pick a winner and announce the SECOND awesome contest.  Easy, right?  Then let's get to it.

1.  Change your twitter icon to a Deathday Letter icon.  Use one of these or make one of your own!

2.  Write a blog post about what YOU would do if you got a deathday letter.

3.  Post a video of you DOING some awesome last day thing. Have you always wanted to sing karaoke? Video yourself doing it and post it.  Next week you'll get to see my video where I jump out of a plane.

4.  Make a Deathday style postcard like one of these and then put it on your website.


5.  Tweet about this contest.

6.  Join The Deathday Letter facebook page

7.  Post the Deathday Letter widget on your blog or website.

8.  Pass out some bookmarks at your local library or indie bookstore (email me your address and I'll send them to you).

That's it!  And this copy is clean and new and shiny.  No cat puke.  Promise!


  1. I put a widget on my blog.

    Good luck with the launch!

  2. Liked the FB group and retweeted your contest post.

    If you wanted any extra cat pukey copies, I'm sure my cat could help with that, too.

  3. So far I changed my twitter pic, wrote a blog, and put the postcard on my blog. Not gonna film me doing my 'deathday' plans. It'd bore everyone to death.

  4. Widget on blog. Well, I created my own little deal and put it up. Also joined Facebook page. I'll send you address so I can pass bookmarks out at school. I'm also telling librarians to purchase book for library.

  5. I liked your facebook page and *gasp* changed my twitter icon.

  6. Lets see I am a fan on Facebook, added a widget and posted a blog about the book. Great job and can't wait to read the whole think!

  7. Fun contest!! And congrats!!!! I'm so excited for you :D

    K, I'm a fan on Facebook, I put the widget on my blog, and I made a postcard (which was really just too much fun) :D

  8. I liked The Deathday Letter Facebook page. Your book sounds amazing.

  9. Ooh, this is exciting!!!!
