TAKE ME AWAY contest!
To celebrate the upcoming release of my first Aphrodisia title, Take Me, I’m holding my biggest contest yet! I want to get the word out about my book, and I need your help!

To enter the contest, copy the code (click on ’share’) of the graphic above and post it to your Facebook, Blog, Myspace, Website, or any of the options that are offered in the graphic. Come back and leave a comment in this very post with a link to your blog entry or wherever you’ve posted the graphic and your answer to the following question: If you could close your eyes and just be Taken Away somewhere at this moment, where would you go?

If for some reason you are unable to post the graphic, just blog about my contest or post about it on Facebook or Myspace or in a group somewhere. Just tell me where you’ve posted about it and provide a link to it, even if I can’t go there to check it out. But of course, I’m hoping you can share the link since I just adore the graphic Frauke made me!

The winner of the First and Second prize will be announced the morning of August 2nd. This contest is open to both authors and readers alike!


I’m also going to be giving away books by other authors during the month of this contest on my blog! So be sure to check back often! The winner will be posted the morning after, in the comments section in daily drawing. Because of the time it takes, I do not track down winners, so be sure to come back and check to see if you won!

All members of my newsletter will be automatically entered in a special surprise contest. The winner will be drawn on August 2nd! Sign up for my newsletter

Because of the nature of some of these books, you must be at least 18 to enter! By entering this contest you’re stating that you are at least 18 years of age.

This contest is open to residents both inside and outside the U.S. (If for some reason the Amazon/LUSH gift certificates cannot be sent outside the U.S., alternate prize will be decided upon!).

Winners are drawn randomly. I will be sending out books to winners for the book giveaway on my blog once a week (so I’m not at the post office every day!). Because of the time it takes, I do not track down winners, so be sure to come back and check to see if you won!

Everyone over the age of eighteen is eligible for this contest, including authors and professionals in the publishing industry (we’re all readers!).

Have fun and thanks for entering! (And by the way, if your comment doesn’t show up right away, it likely got stuck in the spam filter and I’ll pluck it out!)

    and if I could close my eyes and wish to be somewhere right now…
    Oh MAN!!!
    I want to open my eyes to find myself on the beach or Bora Bora… white sand, crystal clear blue water lapping up the edge of the beach… A huge umbrealla over head with my own private cabana boy attending to alll my needs!!!

    http://booknerdextraordinaire.blogspot.com/ it’s on a side bar.

    If I closed my eyes and at this moment could be taken away, to anywhere, anyplace, anytime.. it would be for a 2 hour massage! Just the thought of being oiled down and having my poor back’s knots worked out sounds positively sublime right at this moment!

    If I could go anywhere right now, I would go to a spa and have a full day away from my kids. I love ’em, but I am sorely ready for some “me time” ;)

    Hello, I posted this on Twitter, Just entering Shelli Stevens take me away contest, hopefully to win something. check it out at http://www.shellistevens.com/fun-stuff/ If I could close my eyes and go anywhere, I think I would go to Ireland and England first and then to Greece and from there to Vermont as these are places I would love to see and experience. Thanks for the contest.

    Shelli, I read the first couple of pages on Amazon and the book is awesome!!! I added it to my author blog. It was wonderful to meet you at the literacy signing at RWA Nationals.

    As to where I would like to be? In the mountains; a secluded cabin somewhere, relaxing without a care in the world…. Where else?

    I could close my eyes and be taken away right here right now, I would layaing on a beach in Hawaii, with Johnny Depp, sipping something sinful.. ::waggles brows::

    Thank you so much!

    I posted here. I hope that this is right…I am just trying to figure all of this stuff out. If I could close my eyes and go anywhere…hmmm. It would be a deserted island (my husband would be with me)…but we would have all of the luxuries…a little bungalow to spend the days in, food, running water. Basically somewhere that we can be totally alone.

    http://habrewer.blogspot.com/ I posted it on my blog.

    taken away anywhere, I would have to say an island with beautiful sand and clear blue water to get away with my hubs and daughter and granddaughter (hubs and I would miss the baby if we left her at home).

  22. 22

    Summer nights have been limited since daugher and granddaughter moved back in with us. Did get to go to Memphis for the Weekend. Saw Wicked the play and stayed at the Casino’s that was nice. When about $400, that was even nicer.

    I posted the widget here on my blog: http://alitheiascontinuum.blogspot.com/2009/07/take-me-away-contest.html

    If I could be taken anywhere in the world right now, I would love to be taken to the top of Mt. Mitchell. Or a beach with nobody around for miles. I could work with that, lol.

    If I could be taken anywhere in the world I would love to be dropped off in Egypt to explore the tombs and treasures. Or else a nice tropical island where I can relax.

    Thanks for the awesome contest, Shelli!

    Hi Shelli, I posted your contest on my myspace blog:


    If I got a chance to go anywhere, I would love to visit my Navy son who is stationed in Georgia. Haven’t seen him since Christmas, and I miss him like crazy. Would love a chance to visit with him, maybe take him out to dinner, and of course, get in some hugs.

    Cool contest! Love it :)

    Shared your graphic on my sidebar at http://bunnymoney9.blogspot.com/

    If you could close your eyes and just be Taken Away somewhere at this moment, I would love to be in Europe with my husband! I have yet to visit there!

  31. 31

    I was excited to post your graphic at Damned Scribbling Women where I’m sharing editing tips all week. Your contest gave me a break in the heat. Where would I go? Europe, but it’s too hot there right now, so my take-me-away is France in October. A week in Paris with the kids in an apartment near the Rodin Museum. Then – this is the beautiful part – they would disappear somewhere (I have a fuzzy vision of grandma or Mary Poppins) while the husband and I go winetasting. Reckless French fat-filled dining every night, romping through fields of lavender and vineyards, oh la la.

    Posted on my blog:

    If I could be taken away somewhere, I’d go to Fiji.

    Congrats on your new release!

    I’ve posted it on my blog- http://the-dip-files.blogspot.com/2009/07/shelli-stevens-contest.html

    I’ve also posted it on my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/Hilda.Oquendo

    anddd I posted it as a bulletin on myspace at http://bulletins.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=bulletin.read&authorID=463665915&messageID=6514568903

    If I could be magically taken away anywhere, I would go back in time, go to London and locate a library that has a full stock of books in leather covers. I’m fascinated by them! And I haven’t had the fortune to find one on sale. I did see one but it was a religious book which I’m not into so I didn’t buy it. But yes, I would soooo love to have a huge collection of leather-cover books! =)

    Great contest and congrats on the release!!!!
