Paranormal Summer Fest – Thank you!

paranormalfest2 The end is already so close! In fact the avalanche of Guest Post, Interviews and Giveaways is now over. But you still have until July 4th to enter the giveaways, and all winners will be announced on July 6th, so don’t forget to come back and see if you won some goodies!

Abigail from All Things Urban Fantasy and myself would like to thank everyone for such an awesome response! We were really happy to have all of you come and visit us and we are hoping you will stick with us some more =)

Here are some Paranormal Summer Fest Numbers:

  • 27 Interviews
  • 22 Guest Blogs
  • 60 Giveaways which breaks down to 159 books total!

But this events wouldn’t have been possible without the participation of some truly awesome allies, and we would like to thank every single one of them personally for their time, their efforts and their generosity!

First, thank you to my partner in crime, Abigail! I contacted her in march with this crazy fest idea because even if it all sounded great in my head, I was scared to dive in alone lol. She jumped right in on my crazy-wagon, so thank you Abigail, I couldn’t have done it alone <3

 

Second, thank you to our friends from the different publishing houses:

 

And now a huge Thank You to the fabulous authors who made room for us in their busy schedule! You guys have been so amazing, we can’t thank you enough =)

  15. Just the amount of time planning and organzing PSF, that's devotion gals! My hubby and I want to say we really appreciate all the work Tynga and Abigail did.

    As for ideas, the only thing we can think of is maybe a live chat/reader Q & A to open or close the festival with a few of the authors. Basically something that allows the reader the chance to interact with the author(s).

    Thanks,
    Dawn & Ron
