GIVEAWAY! “Real” Dragon / B&N Gift Card

GIVEAWAY! “Real” Dragon / B&N Gift Card

To celebrate my reaching 1K followers on Twitter last week, AND the arrival of the New Year, I am hosting a special giveaway!

Several weeks ago, when I mentioned the idea of a giveaway on Twitter, my fellow blogger and world-conquerer, Cait, sagely suggested that I include a dragon in the prizes. I assented that it was an excellent idea.

While I WISH I could give you all an actual, live dragon, there is the unfortunate problem with dragons not being real and everything. I had to settle with the next best thing: Dragon statues!

So, whoever wins this giveaway will get either (1) an awesome dragon of their choosing or (2) a Barnes & Noble gift card, if they’re not the dragon-loving type. (Shame on you, dragon haters.)

Q: How do I enter the giveaway?

A: This giveaway is powered by Rafflecopter! Here’s the link below:

Q: When does the giveaway end?

You have exactly one week to complete the giveaway tasks. It all ends on January 8, 12:00 AM EST. And then I get to choose the lucky winner!

Q: What are the prizes, exactly?

I will be giving away any one of the dragon statues at Medieval Collectives, chosen by the winner, up to a price of $20. I will order the statue you choose and send it to you, wherever you are in the world. 😉

Dragon statues
Here are examples of the epic (and even cute) dragons that can be yours.

If you don’t want a dragon, I will send you a digital Barnes & Noble gift card for $25 instead.

And just to be painfully clear: You can only choose ONE PRIZE or the other. You cannot combine the dragon prize with the gift card prize. Sorry, but I’m just not that rich.


Good luck, everyone! And Happy New Year! ^_^

    YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I NEED THIS DRAGON, MY FRIEND. I definitely do need it. And I totally scoured your instgram and twitter for answers to those scavenger clue so *FINGERS CROSSED*
    SQUEAK.

      Cait, there is a part of me that almost hopes you win this, just because you want it so badly. xD But the luck of the draw will decide, not I!

      Ian sounds like a marvelous name for such a tiny (yet ferocious) beast!

      HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU, TOO!

      Kate, I am sorry about the confusion!! Each of your comments were accepted, but they went to moderation. 🙂 Apparently it doesn’t give people a notice when it does that?? I don’t know…

      Thanks for your persistence, though! Hehe! And good luck in the giveaway!

      *blushes* WELL GEE. That’s probably the best reason anyone has given me. xD

  9. OMG DRAGONS. This is seriously a fabulous idea and the reason we should all take orders from our Queen. But, erm, let’s be honest, I’d prefer the books. PROBABLY. MAYBE. Dragons are very tempting. This was a super fun scavenger hunt — I’m relieved I managed to find answers despite this being my first time on your blog (why though? I follow your Twitter, and it is clearly an egregious error that I didn’t follow your blog). Absolutely fantastic giveaway; Happy New Year!

      Indeed, the Queen reigns supreme, and her dragonly ideas are indeed superior to anyone else’s. (Look at us, we are loyal to her and she’s not even in the room.) Of course, if you win, the choice is entirely up to you, and I won’t ACTUALLY shame you for choosing the books. ;D I’m not even sure I would choose the dragon myself… hmm! But who knows, since I won’t actually be in the giveaway. (That would kind of defeat the point…)

      I’m so glad it was fun!! And a most hearty welcome to StoryPort! ^_^

      They ARE lovely! I’m tempted to buy one for myself… ;D Best wishes to you, as well!

    Aah, what a fun giveaway!! Those dragons are SUPER cute, especially that little green one. *heart eyes* I might have to go with the gift card if I win, though, because I haven’t made a Barnes & Noble order in a while and it’d be fun to get a box of books on my doorstep. 😉 Either way, though, thanks so much for hosting–I’m super excited to enter! And HAPPY NEW YEAR!

      Yayy!! 😀 They ARE super cute!! I don’t blame you if you choose Barnes & Noble, though… I think getting a Barnes & Noble gift card is one of the happiest things that can happen to me. 🙂 Thanks for entering! Good luck and Happy New Year! ^_^

    DRAGONS ARE LIFE ( I used to want to grow up and be a dragon) Thanks for the giveaway, Brianna! It looks like all sorts of fun– and who can resist the promise of a dragon?

    Dragons!!!!!!!!!!! I’d probably choose the books though because I’m hoping to buy a house this year and I’d be afraid the dragon would get broken during the move 🙁

    • Brianna da Silva

      That would be a valid reason!! We certainly wouldn’t want the poor dragon to break! :O :O

    This is honestly one of the best giveaways I’ve seen in awhile. Who can defy the magnetic pull of a dragon? Certainly not me. Thank you for hosting this! 🙂
