Hang 'Em High Hoedown Day #10: The Grand Prize!!

I'm as tickled as I can be that so many of you have joined me for this countdown to my book launch party. I'm also tickled that it's now just one day until then ... I'm ready to party hearty!!

When: Saturday, August 13th, 12 – 4 pm
Where: Pioneer Book, 858 S. State, Orem
Bring the entire family!

I love sharing these fun moments with all of you and appreciate the support you've shown me as I've worked hard to build up my career. Without good friends, it's just not possible.

The winner of Queen in Exile by Donna Hatch is ...


If you would like to enter to win yesterday's prize of Depth of Deceit by Betty Briggs and Sun Tunnels and Secrets by Carole Thayne Warburton, click here for details - you can enter until midnight Friday night, MST.

And now, it's time to talk about ...


You will receive a set of three books, one each of the first three in the Secret Sisters Mysteries. Book #1, Secret Sisters, is a hardback. Book #2, Dearly Departed, is a paperback, as is Book #3, Hang 'Em High. If you are the winner and you attend the book launch party, I'll hand them over right then and there. If you're unable to attend, I will mail them out to you.

There's something different about this drawing - before, you've had until midnight on the second day to enter. With this drawing, you have until ten a.m. on Saturday, August 13th. I'm drawing early so I can give the prize right to the winner if they come to the launch that afternoon.

Now, what must you do to enter this drawing? There's a little bit of a list here, and you can choose which four things you'll do, as I realize not everyone is involved in all the social networks. Choose the four that work best for you, and then tell me what you did in the comment trail.

#1. Become a follower of this blog by clicking in the "People Who Think I'm Cool" box to your left. If you are already a follower, skip this step.

#2. Become a friend of mine on Facebook by clicking here. If you are already a friend, skip this step.

#3. "Like" my author page by clicking here. If you have already "liked" it, skip this step.

#4. Post this invitation on your blog:

When: Saturday, August 13th, 12 – 4 pm
Where: Pioneer Book, 858 S. State, Orem
Prizes, games, Dutch oven cobbler (first come, first served)
Authors Tristi Pinkston, Nichole Giles, Heather Justesen,
Cindy Hogan, and J. Lloyd Morgan

#5. Send an e-mail to a friend who likes to read and who lives near Orem.

#6. Tweet about the book launch and copy me in: @TristiPinkston

#7. Call a Utah friend on the phone and tell them about the launch.

#8. Go to GoodReads and add Hang 'Em High to your "to-read" list.

#9. Go to this Amazon link and click "like."

#10. Tell one friend about the book launch face-to-face.

Now, let me explain the scoring system:

Choose four things, and do them. That is your first entry. Tell me about it in the comment trail. If you do four things, and then do something else too, that is two entries. Four entries, plus two more, is three entries. Four entries, plus three more, is four entries, and so forth, all the way up to doing all ten, which counts for seven entries. You decide how much you want to do, how many entries you get.

Again, I must receive your entries by 10 a.m. MST on Saturday, August 13th.

This is more excitinger by the second ... thanks for making this so much fun by participating!

I'm glad you stopped at ten, I only have so many fingers!

1) Following the blog
2) Facebook friend
3) Liked your author page
4) Book launch invitation posted and blogged (
5) I don't have any reader friends in Orem. Sad, because I did live there for nine years. Would it count if I just Emailed you?
6) Will do!
7) See #5.
8) Added to to-read list.
9) I didn't see a like, but I shared it on Facebook. Does that count?
10) I can do that!

How many entries is that? I lost count. Don't put me in for the drawing, I would have done this with or without the drawing. I love promoting my friends!

Good Morning! I've been following your blog for a couple of months, and I've been a Facebook friend for a couple of months, and I'm even a FB friend of Ida Mae's (I thought she was real for a while, now she's even more real, and I want to be just like her when I grow up, *grin*), I liked your author page, I posted the book launch invitation on my blog at I also posted a book review of Secret Sisters on my blog on Aug 4, 2011, if you'd like to see it (I only have 13 followers, so don't be too impressed). I shared both posts on FB and Twitter. I tweeted about the book launch, I added it to my "to-read" list on GoodReads, and I liked it on Amazon. I have no idea how many entries that makes and it doesn't really matter, I'd have done them anyway. I have a workshop in American Fork until 3:30, so I won't get there until it's almost over, but I'm looking forward to meeting you. You seem like a kindred spirit.
