IT’S TIME FOR A NEW GIVEAWAY! – ENDED

Hey, everyone!

As you probably already know, I’m taking part in the Wattpad Block Party again.

During the event last year, I gave you a sneak peek, some info on the Dogs, Bats & Monkeys Series and a personality quiz (Which You are the Answer Character Are You); this year, I’ll be sharing with you tips about Wattpad (how to increase the chances of your story being read, how to get feedback, etc.) and writing (titles, blurbs, what not to include in your story, things to do to improve your story, etc.). Just click here to add some knowledge to your mind’s database.

That’s not all though. I also have for you…

4th Wattpad Birthday GIVEAWAY – Ended

CatMint5's (Dilyana Kyoseva's) 4th Wattpad Birthday GIVEAWAY

I started posting my stories on wattpad on December 31, 2012. That date is coming again (well, minus the year) so I’ve decided to show my appreciation for my readers by naming a character after one of them and by giving away some chapter dedications. Then I remembered that a lot of my readers were also writers so I added a few more prizes. In the end, here’s what you could win:

  • One review on five chapters of your book.
  • One review on three chapters of your book.
  • Three chapter dedications to three different people. The winners get to pick the chapter or, if they can’t pick one, I’ll dedicate a random chapter from a story of their choice.
  • Naming a character after one person. The character will be from an ongoing story of the winner’s choice.

How to get these prizes? Just enter this raffle!

Note: There will be only one prize per person.
