I try not to dwell on stats and let them dictate how I’m blogging. However, of course I peek at them every once in a while because it fascinates me how my numbers go up month to month. It shows my work pays off and people are interested in the content I give. That said, I was practically over the moon when my blog reached 500 views in July. I was happy and looked forward to August and challenged myself if I can reach 600. It had become obvious pretty soon, that my stats will be well over 600. Half a month to go and I already reached the stats of July. Mind blown. So I started to think. I decided if I’ll reach 1.000 views by the end of August (by the way I did, it almost went up to 1.200), then I’ll come up with something to say thank you to the community. So, I started to organise a giveaway. To top things, my blog will be 6 months old in September so I knew I had to celebrate with something really awesome.
I teamed up with 3 author friends of mine and we offer a prize you’ll love!
Benedict Patrick, author of the Yarnsworld books, SPFBO semi-finalist, SPFBO cover contest winner, Dungeon Master at the Crit Faced Podcast, dad, and one of those people who got me where I am today.
Benedict was one of the first people I got to know in the indie scene, hell, in the book scene overall and one of the reasons I started blogging. To help out authors like him, to spread the word and give back something I’ve got.
If you’d like to know more about him, read our interview: Author Interview with Benedict Patrick
Also, check out my reviews of his books:
C.T. Phipps is the author of the Supervillainy Saga, the Bright Falls Mysteries, the Cthulhu Armageddon series, the Agent G series and the Lucifer’ Star series as well as Wraith Knight and a few other books. Besides of being a writer, he also loves all geeky stuff 🙂 Also, he is one of the nicest people I got to know during my short blogging career.

Also, check out my review of his book:
Ulff Lehmann, author of the Light in the Dark series, fellow music addict, bookworm, and a hell of a patient (for putting up with my ramblings) German gentleman. He was the first who reached out to me and asked for a review officially. Twice. He claims he has a good memory though. I’m inclined to believe him and I feel free to pretend he just wanted my attention that much 😉

Good Luck everyone and thanks for being awesome!
Thanks for the contest! I found you through Benedict Patrick.
You are welcome! Thanks for participating and hope to see you around if you like my blog 🙂
This is a great giveaway! Count me in. Gonna repost and spread the word.
Thank you! I really appreciate it 🙂
I followed, visited, and shared. Hope you get some good traffic from this. My 1 year anniversary of the blog is coming up in November and I need to think of something to do.
A giveaway is always a good idea. Also guest posts from other bloggers?
Thanks for chance! Book covers look really cool!
You are welcome! Good luck! 🙂
I’m in. Thanks for the chance!
You are welcome! Good Luck! 🙂
A Yarnsworld giveaway? Awesome! This has been climbing by TBR pile and might jump to the top if I already had it on my kindle (wink, wink!)
Maybe it might help if my comment wasn’t anonymous 😉
Bribing and flattery doesn’t work 😛 Good luck! 😉 Besides, I’d advise to read those books in any case…
