opposites attract copyHi everyone! We are just one week away from kicking off our Opposites Attract Week here on Joyfully Jay! It will be a week filled with reviews, guest posts, and favorite book lists, all centered around our theme. And let’s not forget our fabulous giveaway, a hallmark of our theme weeks here on the blog.

You can get more details on the event at on our kick off post. But the short version is that we are covering all kinds of opposites during the week, including opposite personalities, age gap, famous person/royalty with regular guy, wealth gaps, geek/jock, and more. It is a really fun theme and we hope you all are as excited as we are.

So a few highlights for you. First off, here are the fabulous authors who will be guest posting here for Opposites Attract Week:

  • Damon Suede
  • Katey Hawthorne
  • Silvia Violet
  • C.J. Anthony
  • Charlie Cochrane
  • Kris T. Bethke

This year folks have once again been incredibly generous in donating prizes for our big giveaway. We have almost 70 prizes to give out! So a big thanks to the authors and publishers who were so generous in making donations. And it is not too late; if you want to donate to the giveaway, just let me know.

The giveaway will open on Sunday, April 2 at 2:00 EST and run until Saturday, April 8 at 11:59 EST. So you will have plenty of time to enter. But considering we have so very many prizes, I wanted to give you all a little preview of the goodies. Also, the rules for our theme week contests are different than how we usually do them. So at the end of this long list of amazing prizes, I have a quick overview of how the contest will run so that you all can understand all the details.

So behold the awesomeness, and thanks again to everyone who so generously donated!

All right, so as I mentioned, the rules for all this are a bit different than normal. Here is how it will work:

  • When you enter, you will leave your top 7-12 prizes in ranked order in your comments (more or less is no big deal).
  • If your name is drawn, I will automatically award you the top prize that is left on your list. If you don’t have anything left, no worries. We will contact you directly. But this way, I can award many of the prizes without taking the time to contact everyone individually. Otherwise we would still be giving prizes out next year.
  • Be sure to have joyfullyjay@gmail.com and joyfullyjay.michelle@gmail.com in your safe senders list so that any message from us doesn’t end up in SPAM. If I contact you, you will have 24 hours to get back to me before I have to go one to another winner. Every time we do this, I have folks who lose out on prizes because my messages end up in junk mail so don’t let that happen to you. I want you to get goodies!
  • You must be 18 or older to enter.

So that is the deal. Be sure to check out the list above for ideas of what you might want to include in your prize wish list. And next Sunday at 2:00 pm EST we will have the full list of prizes along blurbs about each one.
