Today we’re hosting The Awesome Indies Magical Mystery Tour. From the 27th to the 30th of September you’ll have the chance to pick up some special offers at the blogs participating in the tour and win an awesome prize. At each blog you’ll find one scene in a mystery story, and one playing card. You’ll need to take the full tour to read the whole story and find out which card is missing from the suite. After taking the tour, come back here and use the name of the missing card (eg Jack, King, Ace or seventh) to enter the draw for an Amazon gift card. (First prize is a $25 card, second prize is $15 and third prizes is a $10 card.)
The draw closes at 24.00 hrs PDT on the 30th September, so you have 4 days to take the tour. All you have to do is follow the links from blog to blog, read the story, note the playing card and while you’re there, pick up the host’s special offer.
Every purchase gives you another entry into the Giveaway.
When you’ve finished, ask yourself which card is missing from the suite? The answer is the key to enter the draw. To get started, read on.
