Last days to enter to win Big Book Prizes!

It's the final days of the Highway to Hell/Mosquitos Suck contest! Check out the list of prizes below! Bookstore gift cards! Tons of books!

You have until April 30th to donate ANY amount (even $1) to Nothing but Nets. (Click here to go directly to the donation page.)

Don't forget to forward your confirmation email to NoMoreBugs@readrosemary.com

Note: you MUST forward your confirmation e-mail. I have no other way to know that you donated. (If you cannot find your confirmation, email anyway. We're trusting souls.)

Even if you don't want to enter the contest, check out Nothing But Nets anyway:

Can you believe that a $10 mosquito net could save someone’s life? In Africa, the bite of one mosquito can transmit malaria, a disease which kills one person every 30 seconds.

The United Nation Foundation’s Nothing but Nets Campaign is a global, grassroots effort dedicated to saving lives by preventing malaria in Africa. When you make a $10 donation, 100% of your contribution goes directly toward purchasing and distributing an insecticide-treated mosquito net and teaching the recipient to use it properly.

$10. That’s the cost of two venti frappe-mocha-latte drinks. To help save someone’s life.

To celebrate the paperback release of Highway to Hell, we here at team RCM (also a grassroots organization) are giving away tons of prizes to encourage people to join the campaign to end malaria. Make any size donation to the Nothing But Nets Campaign, and you will be entered in a drawing to win one of a growing list of prizes:

• $100 gift card to Barnes and Noble
• An ARC (advanced reading copy) of my next book (finished, but still untitled).
• A signed (and personalized) set of all three Maggie Quinn novels.
• $25 gift card to Borders Books from Courtney Milan*
• $25 gift card to Borders from Carrie Lofty*
• $25 gift certificate to the online bookstore of winner's choice, from Tessa Dare*
• One of five signed copies of Highway To Hell (by me).
• A signed copy of Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
• A signed copy of Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
• One of five copies of On The Steamy Side‡ by Louisa Edwards*
• One of five copies of Hell Fire‡ by Ann Aguirre*

*Authors of grown up type fiction
‡Grown up type books. (Under 18 will have YA books to chose from. Over 18 can do what they like. ;-) )

If you are under eighteen, ask your parents to help you with this!

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Go to Nothing but Nets and click “Donate Now.” (Or click here to go directly to the donation page.)
  2. When you receive an email confirming your donation (it will have the amount, but we will treat a one dollar donation the same as a hundred dollars), forward it this email address:

    NoMoreBugs at readrosemary dot com

    Subject: “Mosquitoes Suck” Contest
  3. Tell your friends!

You have until April 30th to make a donation. We will draw winners on May 1st.

That's the deal. Even if you can't enter, help me spread the word with this tweet:

Donate a little, help a lot. End Malaria, win books! http://bit.ly/bi34bw

Thanks and good luck!
