As We Were was never meant to be a Christmas story. But, sometimes things just happen, and a year ago, I finished writing the story. The last chapter of the story was published on Christmas day which was also when the chapter occurred plot wise.
What a better way to celebrate both the 1 year anniversary and Christmas, then to offer two free copies of the story just in time for a Christmas read?
Here are some additional details and helpful resources:
Keep in mind that these are ebooks. There’s no hard cover available.
Should I still enter even if I live outside the US?
Yes, you should. Explanations on how you can still read it, will appear below.
Can I get a personal dedication?
Sure you can, but again, it’s an ebook, which means what you can actually get is a gift note that one can write through the Amazon gift option.
Can I enter in order to give it as a gift to someone else?
Yes! When you enter, just provide the email address of the person whom you want to give it to, and what to write in the gift note!
Okay, we got it. How do we enter?
Well here’s what you gonna need to do:
1. Email to email@example.com .
2. The email should include an email address to which the ebook will be sent if you win, what to write on the note, and a name as it can appear when I’ll announce the winners (it can be a handler/nickname if you wish).
3. If it’s a gift for someone else, mention it. And you can also mention the name of the other person so when I announce, we can say “this and that won a a book for this and that”.
The deadline is December 13th, 12 PM EST, which gives you a week, at which point I’ll draw 2 names *randomly*. Fair opportunities for all!
Some useful general stuff, and stuff for people who aren’t sure if they want to take part:
Guys, please play fair! And if you have any questions, I’m here, on twitter as @shokoshik, and also on the given email address.
Thank you to everyone who supported the story back when it was on fanfiction.net, and wrote to me, it means the world. Thank you to everyone who has purchased it on Amazon and reviewed. I love you for that : )
Good luck and happy holidays!
Who knew a movie about a snail can be so awesome?
Maya Rudolph is hilarious. They all are.
59. The Dreamers
I always like movies that make me go do some research after I’m done watching. In this case, the 1968 students riots in Paris and Maosim.
This movie isn’t for everybody, there’s a lot of nudity, but the acting is great (young Eva Green), and the setting - Paris, adds a lot, of course. Also, the three leads are huge movie lovers, and it’s very evident in the story. While the ending is a bit confusing, it’s still worth it.
