I am SO excited about getting published (it took me years to get here), and about my first two YA books coming out! It feels wonderful to get my dream.

To celebrate, I’ve made two videos full of my happy excitement, and I’m hosting a contest. I hope that you’ll enjoy the good feeling in the videos, and want to pass them on to others. And to entice you to do that, AND to help me spread the word about my upcoming books, I’ve created this contest. I hope you’ll join me, and have fun!

Here are the rules:

1) Share one or both videos with a friend or online–through email, Twitter, linking to it or embedding it on your blog, etc. (The links to the videos are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuAfTLFBDGo and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cTST4Bhcw8)

2) Leave a comment on this post telling me where you linked it. Please include a link to each of your posts, and include your email address if it’s not linked to your comment.

3) If you email my video to a friend/friends, please send me a copy at contest@cherylrainfield.com–you can CC (carbon copy) or BCC (blind carbon copy) me, or just send it to me. You get one entry for every friend you send it to. Please make sure that if you send it to a friend you write a personal note, and that you’re not spamming your friend. I hope it’s something you’d send any way.

You get one entry for posting a link to each video, and for each time you post a link to one of the videos in a different place. That means that if you post a link to both videos, you’ll automatically have two entries, and if you post both links on your blog and site, you’ll have four entries. You’ll also get one entry for every friend you email the video to.

Some places you can post the videos or links to the videos: your blog; your site; Twitter; Facebook; LiveJournal; MySpace; GoodReads; LibraryThing; message boards…wherever you like, as long as it’s not spamming.

Contest closes midnight, September 30, 2009. Contest open worldwide.

Winners will be randomly chosen through Random.org. Winners will be announced here on my blog.

Thank you for celebrating with me, and for helping to spread the word about DRAGON SPEAKER: THE LAST DRAGON (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and SCARS (WestSide Books, Spring 2010).

And thank you to Pam Bachorz, author of Candor, from whom I got the inspiration for this contest.
