  13. Hi Allison!

    I subscribed to your blog.
    I subscribed to your newsletter on your author website.
    “The Reluctant Godfather” is already marked as “want to read” on my Goodreads shelf.
    The giveaway is shared on Pinterest.

    I love chocolate, but I love dark chocolate out of all three kinds. 🙂

    1. Ekaterina – yay! I’m so glad you entered! Thank you so much!

      ‘high fives’ Dark chocolate – yum! 😀

      1. Hi Allison!

        I just learned how to post a nonbookish update on Goodreads, so I just made an update for your giveaway. 🙂

        I guess that means I have 5 tickets or points for the giveaway. I don’t know if tickets is the right word, but I’m thinking of the giveaway as a raffle. And raffles have tickets. 🙂

        1. Ooo – thank you, Ekaterina! And thank you for letting me know – I will add your name to the hat again!

          ‘tickets – ‘points’ – whatever – I getchya and I’m not picky. 😀

  14. As soon as I saw this title on Goodreads I immediately added to it to my to-read list. Sounds like a super fun read!

    I did steps 1, 2, and 4. 🙂

    Oh, and I’m without a doubt a dark chocolate person all the way!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. OOOOHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    *faints from squealing*

    *gasps and gets back up*

    Okay, so I have accumulated ten points… But of course you could throw a few extra my way… XD


    1. Seneca!!! ‘helps you back up’. I’m so happy you entered!

      Let’s see . . . you follow my author’s site, my blog, you’ve read The Reluctant Godfather, reviewed it on Amazon…. that’s four points. Could you verify the other points for me?

      OH, YEAH! Dark chocolate all the way!!!!

      1. Yus ma’am. Do you want links?

        Pinterest account A &B
        GoodReads account A&B
        Google+ Account A&B.
        And I’ve recommended it and reviewed it on GR- so that makes 12 POINTS!!!! Yaaayy!!!

      2. Although, come to think of it, I don’t think I did write a review on Amazon. *sighs* So that would be eleven. 🙁
