Alien Tin Foil Hat Giveaway - The Host by Stephanie Meyer

**CONTEST NOW CLOSED**
I'll be selecting the winner soon and contacting he/she/it via email, so be sure to watch your inbox! The lucky winner will also be announced on a separate post. Thank you guys for visiting me and participating in my very FIRST giveaway. Hopefully more giveaways will be upcoming in the near future (depending on my budget lol).


MY FIRST BOOK GIVEAWAY!!!

In honor of Halloween and all things *other-worldly*, I have a brand new copy of The Host up for grabs.

See, a very good fiend ... I mean friend *cough* ... has bolstered me with the nerve ... *ahem* confidence ... to host (no pun intended) my very own contest. She's helped me time and again to understand some of the ins and outs of blogging, reviewing, technical bs, and all the tedious minutia that comprise this little window to the world called Mary Ann DeBorde Writes (and Reads!).

Without her patient support, I'm sure I'd be drooling in a corner somewhere.

So without further ado, and before I let Bubba from Tiny Trailer Town out of Pitfalls, Illinois pass on the skinny for the giveaway - I want to say:

THANK YOU, VELVET!




"This here be Bubba. Now, I knows you folks been worryin' and wringin' yer hands 'bout them leetle bug-eyed critters flyin' round all over t'place like saucers on steroids, they be.

It were be honest o' me t'admit that I been worried sumthin fierce, too. It be hard e-nuff to keep Six-Toes-Ted's beer cans picked up out o' my yard cos he is the laziest son of a gun I ever did see an' won't pick up after his self no matter if I threaten to tell Maybelle 'bout that time he been flirtin' with that yung gal down at the Dollar Barn like he ain't been married no dang twenty year to the best leetle woman who can bake a biskit like nobody I ever did seen.

Now I gots t' worry bout them aliens an' theys fancy schamncy flyin' saucers they parade round in tearin' up my sheet metal an' I just got the dents hammered out last month after that bad hailstorm we done had.

Plus the widder Smith ain't been seen in a week an' t'tell you the truth I swear on my Ford pickup it be so, that I am thinkin' them dang bugly aliens done stole her clean to Mars, they did an' prolly proud of it!

Honest t'gawd.

Watch out, folks is all I'm gonna say for here on out. Them fugly bug people will get in yor head and steal yor brains gone ... jes like them dang zombeez. If'n it ain't one thang it's a'nother.


So here's the deal I done thought up-

To help folk out with t'alien invasion I think you need to enter to win The Host by Stephanie Meyer. It be a good read an' you might larn sumthin'.


{SORRY FOLKS, BUT THIS HERE GIVEAWAY BE OPEN TO USA ONLY!}

* YOU GOTTA FOLLOW THIS HERE BLOG IN GFC FER YOR ENTRIES TO COUNT. Cos we don't want no alien critters sneakin' in here to steal our brainzz.

* Then leave yor NAME/alias and email in that comment thang so we kin get ahold o'you if'n you win

*An' fer one EXTRA entry - send that nice gal Mary Ann a picture of a tin-foil hat, granny's old metal colander like we done used below, or whutever you thank will keep yor brains safe from fugly bugly critters an' zombeez, too. Jes leave the picture link in a SEPARATE comment.



*An' fer one MORE entry - leave a comment at that Velvet gal's site (vvb32reads) an' head on back over here to tell us about it in another SEPARATE comment. If you want to tell her how much you like ol' Bubba here, that is fine as moonshine in May!
