500 Followers Giveaway - You All Rock!


500 Follower Giveaway!


Sometime on Friday 10 February I hit 500 GFC followers, which is so amazing.  I never thought when I started The Aussie Zombie only three short months ago that anyone would be interested in what I had to say about books and in particular, zombie stories.


What I didn't know is how many closet zombiephiles there are in the reading world - and how many people would be interested in reading a zombie book but were a little overwhelmed as to which was a "good" zombie book.


I had big plans for this giveaway - I was going to research loads of lists and blogs and make a huge list of "most wanted" books, but this week I've realised the best kind of giveaway is where you can get something of your choice, because we all have different reading preference or there may be a book we've had our eye on for a while but never got around to purchasing for various reasons


Without further ado, I'm super-excited to announce my 500 follower giveaway!


The giveaway will begin with 5 prizes - each winner will be able to choose one book of their choice from The Book Depository, up to a value of EUR 10.00.  For every 50 followers after 500 I will offer one additional prize (same as the other 5) - so the more you spam, pimp and promote my giveaway the more chances to win!


Now 7 prizes!  If I get 650 followers, it goes up to 8 prizes! Madness!


Officially now a mega-giveaway of 9 books!
