Celebrate the End of the World With a Free Book (Giveaway) – The Fall: Tales From the ApocalypsePosted on December 21st, 2012 28 comments
It’s the end of the world.
It’s like a locker combination. A locker combination to doomsday.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Whatever, right? I’m going to an end of the world party tonight to enjoy my last moments on earth… but in the meantime I had an idea.
And yes, this plant started it all last Friday.
And then (FINALLY!!) on Wednesday night (two days ago) these arrived at the local postal outlet:
It’s easy. Really, really easy.
As a thank you for reading my blog (even if you are new around these parts) I’d like to give one lucky reader (oh, okay two lucky readers–why not? The world is ending I can afford to be generous.) a copy of The Fall: Tales From the Apocalypse. Either ebook or a print copy–your choice.* If you want to more than double your chances, check out Judy Croome’s Goodreads giveaway of The Fall: Tales From the Apocalypse. She is giving away 20 copies! Whoa!
What do you have to do? How many hoops do you have to jump through?
Just leave a comment–even if it as simple as saying “count me in.” Be sure to leave your email address in the comment’s sign in box thingy so I can contact you if you win. (That way you don’t have to keep checking back–or better yet, subscribe on the right to the blog so my posts come right to your inbox. I’ll be posting the winner(s) on Saturday, the 22nd.)
Since the world is ending today, let’s leave this book giveaway open until midnight tonight, End of the World Friday, December 21, 2012.
And if the world really does end, well dang! I guess that’s it. It’s been nice knowing you and thanks for reading.

What is The Fall about?
(14 short stories by 13 authors.)
What would the end of the world look like?
What would end our civilization?
Would it be a dark and scary place or would it be full of hope? (Hint: It is the latter of the two.)
Find out in The Fall: Tales From the Apocalypse

P.S. Curious about The Fall: Tales From the Apocalypse? You can buy copies on Amazon.com (print) or ebook as well as on Kobo.com ($2.88 for ebook). Proceeds go to charity. If you have already read it we would LOVE it if you dropped a review–even just a line or two–on your favourite online site whether your blog, Goodreads, Amazon, Kobo, or… where ever! Thanks!
* I am willing to send the ebook version anywhere in the world, but I ask that since this is a charitable project–all proceeds from the book go to charity–and I, like the other contributing authors, donated my story, Crumbs, to The Fall (as well as at least 80 hours editing the anthology) that only American or Canadian addresses request a print version as the shipping elsewhere will kill me! Er… no pun intended. Tee, hee.contest book giveaway, Crumbs by Jean Oram, ebook giveaway, end of the world 2012, The Fall: Tales From the Apocalypse

Great idea, Jean! I already have my own copy, but I’ll tweet and spread the word!
I want one! I can’t wait to see how today ends (and not in the apocalyptic sense). There was barely any traffic this morning, which means several folks stayed home from work. I hope it doesn’t get crazy as the day progresses.
Hi Jean! The world is very pretty this morning. We finally have a little snow. Congrats on The Fall. Of course I’d like another copy!
I’ve always wanted to have a Winter Solstice party but I just couldn’t get it together this year.
Congratulations on the publication of “The Fall”! It’s exciting to see so many names I remember from AQ Connect – aka the good ol’ days.
I’d love to win two copies! One for me and one for a relative who I’m determined to wean off a steady diet of zombie novels. The Fall seems like the perfect choice to widen his horizons, but not throw him into the panic induced by reading a book comprised entirely of normal, real life situations. If I only won one copy, the zombie loving relative would get it because this is Christmas and I’m unselfish that way;-)
sounds great. Should be a good read
Really!?! I’m in! I am looking for some light “end of the world” reading!! Most of the reading I do is by middle years students… Not quite as interesting I am sure… So looking forward to it!!
I’m all in! Thanks, Jean!
I’d love to get my hands on a copy of this! 🙂
I’ve been wanting a copy of this book. Thanks for the chance to win.
I would love to win a copy.
Count me in!
I want one!
Count me in… Some light reading for Don.
Oh!!! Am I too late?!?! I hope not! I got so caught up prepping for the trip…
I’d love paperback 🙂
