Milestones Blog Tour: Contest


As some of y'all may have noticed, lately Samira Hodges has been making her way around the blog world to promote her new book Milestones (which I'm SUPER crazy excited to read by the way). Today is her last stop on her blog tour and we decided to end it BIG!

I'm hosting a contest for her. There are multiple ways to win and it should be tons of fun. Samira has made her way to 6 blogs not including my own and given some type of interview or guest blog. Those interviews reveal a lot about Samira and her new book. Have you been paying attention? If so this should be a snap. If not....well the interviews are still posted so you better get to reading.

I just realized y'all probably don't even know what's going on yet. So here goes....There's going to be a contest. It's going to be kind of like a scavender hunt. There will be 10 questions released today and one bonus question released Wednesday. There may be more questions later this week but ALL questions will be released here. The answers can be found at any of the stops from Samira's blog tour and/or her blog itself. Answers can be emailed to me. And each answer is worth a certain amount of points. The contest ends July 4th. Whoever has the most points in the end wins and I'll keep track of all that. Other ways to gain points? Follow my blog, follow Samira's blog, tag people with the handy dandy picture below, post the book trailer for Milestones, etc. Find out all the real details below in a much more organized fashion.

1. There will be 1o questions.- some multiple choice and some T/F and some just regular questions- and they'll all be released on the same day in one post (this one). (but I might release a few questions later on this week to add a challenge.)

2. Each question will range from easy to "hard" and will be given a certain value of points ranging from 1 pt to 5 pt depending on that.

3. Extra ways to get points

4. To answer the questions email me at readingisbliss@gmail.com with the question number in the subject line. (like Q1 or Q2. If there are multiple questions in one email put all the question #s in the subject line)(does that make sense)
