Win Everybody’s Favorite Book!

Did Kirkus call it “cheerfully chaotic”? Why yes, yes they did.

The holidays are upon us!

You need presents!!!

And you’re so frazzled you can’t stop using exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!

I understand.

But please calm down. I have the solution:

You need a personalized copy of the picture book that sweeping the nation, Everybody’s Favorite Book!

Woo!

It’s a book with everything for everybody—so it is the absolutely, positively perfect holiday gift for any man, woman, child, animal, vegetable, or mineral.

And Now You Can Win a FREE Copy!

Surprised?

I’ll be holding a random drawing for a winner. But you gotta be in it to win it.

How To Enter

To get your name entered in the random drawing, all you need to do is leave a comment below telling me the title of your favorite book.

That’s it! That’s all!

(By the way, the favorite book you mention in the comments will soon be your second favorite book. Because once your read Everybody’s Favorite Book, it will be your new favorite book. Because Everybody’s Favorite Book is everybody’s favorite book. It says it right there in the title. That’s just common sense.)

How To Increase Your Chances of Winning

Want me to stuff the ballot box in your favor? That’s cool.

Here’s what I’ll do. I’ll give you an extra ballot every time you repost this contest online. For example, if you promote this contest on your blog, I’ll give you an extra ballot. If you post it on Facebook, I’ll give you an extra ballot. If you post it Twitter, I’ll give you an extra ballot.  See what I mean?

Soooo if you promote this contest on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumbler, and Reddit, I’ll give you seven extra ballots.

And if you have another idea  to promote the contest, let me know what you have in mind; and I may give you yet another ballot!

Oh, and if you review any of my Prince Not-So Charming books on Amazon or Goodreads, I’ll give you yet another ballot! (Make sure you read the books before reviewing them.)

So, yeah, I’m offering up lots of ways to get you lots of votes.

I’ll be holding the random drawing one week from today:

Tuesday, December 11 December 18!

So what are you waiting for?

Hurry! Enter! And WIN!

Win a Doodle? Anyone? Guys…?

Compared to past Win a Doodle! contests, this one is generating a bit less enthusiasm than usual.

And that’s fine! I’m not complaining. I’m not crying either. I just have something in my eye.

Besides, this is good news for doodle fans everywhere—for never before have you been more likely to win an original, custom made, one-of-a-kind Mike Allegra doodle of Anything You Want! 

“Anything?” you ask.

Yes. Anything. C’mon, we’ve been through this already.

If you haven’t entered the contest yet, there’s still time! Just click here, and follow the oh-so-simple directions for a chance to win!

Good Luck!

 

 

Doodles 'n' Drawings

Win a Doodle! Hooray and Huzzah!

I really like hosting blog contests!

And I really, really like doodling!

And I really, really, really like the fact that some people like my doodles!

So it is time once again for my semi-annual

WIN A DOODLE CONTEST!

Who will be the lucky winner? Will it be YOU?

 

The grand (and only) prize will be a custom made, one-of-a-kind, Mike Allegra doodle of ANYTHING YOU WANT!

“Anything?” you ask.

Yes, anything—provided that “anything” isn’t perverted. I’m a children’s book author, after all, so get your mind out of the gutter!

Otherwise, yes. ANYTHING!

Past contest winners have asked for all kinds of doodles. Like exotic birds…

A caffeine gnome…

A raven shapeshifter (whatever that is)…

(Click to enlarge.)

A woman doing yoga and holding a pen as the ghost of her dearly departed dog looks on…

And (of course) that freaking salamander.

(It’s a long story. But if you must know…)

How to Win

The wining name will be drawn at random from the Hat of Randomness. The draw-er is this guy.

From left: Frosted Flake, flake.

He’s weird but fair.

How to Enter

To get your name in the Hat, all you need to do is leave an Interesting Tidbit about yourself in the comments section below.

I know “interesting” is a subjective term so let me give you some idea of what I’m looking for:

NOT Interesting: “I like ice cream.”
TOO Interesting: “I hunt Armenians for sport.”

Please look for a Tidbit that falls somewhere between those two extremes, okay.

How To Increase Your Chance of Winning

Want me to stuff the ballot box in your favor? Sure! I’ll add two more ballots if you announce this contest on your blog and link back to this page. That’s three chances to win!

Don’t have a blog? No problem. I’ll also give you one extra ballot if you announce this contest on your Facebook page, Twitter feed, Pinterest page, or any other social media platform. (Be sure to post links in the comments.)

Want yet another chance to win? Dang, you’re greedy. Okay, if you’ve read one of my Prince Not-So Charming books (this one or this one), I’ll give you yet another extra ballot if you write a review on Amazon or Goodreads.

Deadlines, Etc.

Your entry is due on or before Monday, September 10. The winner will be announced on Wednesday, September 12!

So that’s it! Leave an Interesting Tidbit below and get going!

Good Luck!
