The Hoedown – Day 1

Hey there! The Hoedown is officially here! Remember, the rules for how to enter are a little different than usual. This time around, instead of leaving a comment (which we’d love for you to do anyway), click on the big box at the bottom that says JOIN THE HOEDOWN. That’ll take you to a site called Rafflecopter. When you get there, you’ll see a list of all the fabulous prizes, which I’m also going to list here in a minute, and at the bottom, you’ll see several ways to enter your name into the drawing. There are a lot of different options, and you are allowed to click on every one of them. At the end of the Hoedown, we’ll post the winners here, on Women & Words, and we’ll also set the Rafflecopter to show the winners.

Please remember that this is an experiment. We are trying to find a way to do drawings that is friendly for y’all that also doesn’t require a massive life-altering commitment from us. When we host the Hootenanny, it’s damn near a career change for those twelve days in December. That said, please give us some feedback. Let us know your thoughts about the setup we’re using this time around.

  1. And if the winner of ‘Tea and Crumpet’ is happy to wait a couple of weeks, I can probably get it signed by a bunch of the other authors too, when I see them at the UK Meet.


  2. I’m having trouble with Rafflecopter. I tried to create an account several times and it just didn’t work. Dunno what else to do.


  3. Oops, now it seems to be recognizing me. I guess it just took a few minutes to make up its mind. Sorry ’bout that.


  4. Thanks so much for doing the Hoedown! 🙂 I’m glad that the rafflecopter can cut down the amount of work for you guys.
    I’m not sure if I’m doing the Facebook liking/friending correctly. I successfully liked some author pages and added entries, but for R.G. Emanuelle and Carsen Taite it is not showing any facebook links to like. For friending authors, it gives me a blank box. Is that where I am supposed to enter a Facebook name?


    • Lisa, I made some adjustments to the form. As long as you are friends with them, then go ahead and click on the enter button. Don’t worry about the empty box. I took that out (if you see it left over on anybody, let me know.).

      As for RG and Carsen specifically, they should both work now. Thanks for working through the bumps with us. 🙂


  5. Thank you for doing this, what fun for us and I hope less work for you!! But what will the elves do with their spare time?


  6. Wow! June was a super busy time for me and I’m just now getting caught up again at W&W. It appears I’ve come back around just in time! Those giveaways look great. Thanks W&W and participating authors!
