Hello everyone! I am so excited to tell you about a great giveaway we have going on this week over GRL.  First thing to mention, you do not have to be going to GRL to participate!  I have ways for everyone to play, so read on for details.

How Do I Enter?

Author Christopher Rice shows off his Joyfully Jay pin

1) Find a Joyfully Jay blog pin.  They will be in the swag room, I will have some on me, and some of my reviewers will as well (see my notes about where you can find me at GRL here).

2) Take a picture of yourself wearing a pin. It can be on you, or on your badge, or on your bag, or in your hand, or whatever. As long as we can see  it, you are good. It can be a selfie or get someone to take it for you.  Individual or a group (seriously, I am easy here).

If you are not at GRL or can’t find a pin, take a picture of yourself with something related to reading or the blog.  You with your kindle. You reading the blog. You holding a romance book. Again, I am easy here.  Just get something close and I am fine.

Yes, I would love to see your face, but if you can’t bear it, cut your head off and that is fine.

3) Post your picture online.  Be sure to follow the instructions below on how to post so your entry can be counted.

  • Tweet It: Tweet the picture of yourself, tag me at @jayhjay432 and hashtag it #joyfullyjayselfie
  • Post it to Facebook: Post it your Facebook page, tag me at Jay H. Jay, and hashtag it #joyfullyjayselfie
  • Email: If you don’t have a Twitter or FB account, or you really can’t handle posting a pic of yourself online, email your picture to me

Please note, the contest doesn’t start until Wednesday October 15th so do not start sending your pictures until then!

  • You must have a Joyfully Jay pin visible somewhere in the picture (or some other related image as indicated above).
  • You must include the appropriate tags/hashtags so that I can find your picture entry in the mess of my timelines.
  • I reserve the right to repost/retweet or post online any pictures I receive to help promote the blog or the contest.  If you absolutely do not want your picture reposted, you must indicate that somehow on your entry.

Fine Print…
