Giveaway: If Wishes Were Earls…One Might Win an iPad!

Avon contacted me and asked if I'd like to host a giveaway to celebrate the release of Elizabeth Boyle's new book, If Wishes Were Earls, and to celebrate Ms. Boyle's birthday, which is today! Happy birthday, ma'am!.

I like birthdays (CAKE) and I like celebrations (CAKE) and I like giveaways (NO CAKE — SORRY. SHIPPING CAKE WOULD BE GROSS) so I agreed. Ready for some fun? 

Have a look-see at the cover below: 

Book If Wishes Were Earls - a woman in a white short sleeved gown looking into a pool of water


Help complete the above title with as much silly or savvy as you like by leaving a comment below answering, If Wishes Were Earls….what would happen?” If you do, you're entered to win. 

(One second – excuse me.)

(Pssst, listen Avon, I don't mean to be obvious but If Wishes Were Earls does not rhyme with “love.” I'm sorry to be the one to tell you.)

Anyway. Standard disclaimers apply. Void where prohibited. Open to international residents where permitted by applicable law (I'm covering the international shipping for the prizes and I FEAR NO STAMPS.) Must be over 18 and getting your hem wet in some random body of water to win. Corsets optional. Shirt and shoes optional. Nose mandatory. Comments will close 12 pm ET, Friday 10 January 2014. I will select the winner from the entries in the comments on Friday 10 January. You're welcome to tell me in the comments which entries you like best. 

So, what are the prizes?

iPad2 WiFi 16 GB model

An iPad 2, 16 GB – WiFi!


Yay! Thanks, Avon! I wonder if wishing earls might buy iPads? 

Second runner up will win a $50 gc to the e-retailer of their choice (open internationally as well). Wishing earls would totally buy bookstore giftcards, too, I'm thinking.

So, if you'd like to enter to win, leave a comment below and complete the sentence If Wishes Were Earls…. 

Good luck! May the earls be with you!

    If wishes were earls I’d live in Highclere Castle with the Crawley family, being waited on by Carson, Mrs Bates, Cook and Daisy and watching Thomas and O’Brien doing bad deeds.

    Why can’t I think of something manly?

    If wishes were earls… their chest hair would curl…

    If Wishes were Earls the chick in the white dress might actually dip her hand in the pond rather than just pondering her reflection.

    If wishes were Earls, there’d be a lot of confused people in the the world. 

    And either a lot of Earls or a few really, really exhausted ones.  They’d be popping in and out all over the place – I wonder if they’d all get together and set up shifts??? A union???  Negotiate wish-breaks? 

    I mean there you are wishing you’d win the lotto jackpot (so you can shout (aka treat) a mega Bitch-con in a sexy chateau on some sheik’s island) and you get an Earl???  Obviously something got lost in translation.  Would that make you believe in divine inspiration or just confirm that fate is a fickle member of the Bitchery???

    If wishes were earls, then the whole world would have curls. 

    This is from someone with curly hair who will never have smooth, straight hair.

    If wishes were Earls, every bitch would have one and I’d want a Marquis…  I’m contrary that way. ;)

    …that fake well on my grandma’s lawn would be crammed with gentlement in knee breeches and hose, and the police would be called sooner or later.
