Giveaway for A Tolkien Blog Party 2019

Huzzah!  The partying can now commence!  I hereby present to you the nine prizes for this year's Tolkien Blog Party Giveaway!

ONE winner will receive all four of these Tolkien-themed bookmarks which I bought as printable files from the Etsy shop Mirkwood Scribes, then printed out myself on card stock and laminated with contact paper for extra durability.

ONE winner will receive this "vegan leather" bookmark that I purchased from the Etsy shop A Fine Quotation.

TWO winners will EACH receive ONE set of THREE stickers that I purchased from the Etsy shop Sweet Sequels.  The top three stickers are the "Locations" trio (Lothlorien, Rivendell, Minas Morgul), and the bottom three stickers are the "Quotations" trio ("Courage is found..." "I feel like Spring after winter..." and "All that is gold...").

TWO winners will EACH receive ONE necklace that I made myself.  One necklace says "hope" and has a little leaf charm, and one necklace says "be brave" and has a little sword charm.

ONE winner will receive the Sam and Frodo coaster I got in my Middle-earth-themed book box from Flick the Wick.

ONE winner will receive the two-ounce "Thranduil" candle I received in my Middle-earth-themed book box from Flick the Wick

ONE winner will receive this copy of An Atlas of Tolkien by David Day, which I reviewed here last year.  Please note that this is a USED copy, and has some sticker residue on the front cover, as seen in the above picture.  I think you can scrape this residue off if you're patient -- I just gave up because I needed to take my photos for this post while the light was nice.  Below are a few more images so you know what the back and insides are like.

This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE.  

As always, the main way to gain entries is to participate in the party by contributing a post, either your answers to the official tag or another Tolkien-related post, then adding your post's link to the Mister Linky widget at the bottom of that kick-off post.  But that isn't required!  You can also earn entries by doing other things like commenting, following, and telling me your prize choices.  I do my best to match winners with their choice of prizes, but that doesn't always work out -- that's why I ask for your top three choices.

This giveaway runs through the end of Friday, September 27. I will draw the winners on Saturday, September 28 and post the names of the winners on this blog, as well a notify them by email, no later than Sunday, September 29.

PLEASE make sure your information for the giveaway widget includes your current email address so that if you win a prize, you'll get the email informing you that you won! If you don't reply to my email by Saturday, October 5, I will choose another winner and award your prize to them instead.

Here's the widget:

    This looks amazing, and I definitely want to do a blog post answering all the questions, but it's not going to be in time for the official party...because it's the night of the 27th...and I've been up since before the sun came up, and so am tired...but I want to enter the giveaway, so I'm commenting. XD

    Prize preferences:
    1. Atlas
    2. Four bookmark set
    3. Location sticker set

    1. Marlene, not to worry! The giveaway ends at midnight the 27th, but the party carries on through the 28th. I might not even get a chance to choose and notify the giveaway winners until late the 28th. We shall see!

  23. Also, I don't know if it matters, but the email I'm using for entry is different from the email attached to my Blogger account...

    1. Marlene, is that email attached to the name Marlene Simonette somehow? If not, you can comment here with what the email address is, and I will delete that comment instead of sharing it, since comments are on moderation until sometime tomorrow.
