  67. My dream prize would be an iPad. I’ve got dreams of one day being able to access the internet while at conventions without having to drag my laptop everywhere I go. 🙂

    As for the ebook: I’d love to try The Masked Heart by Karla Darcy. I will admit to being intrigued by the Jane Austen theme that this series is centered around.

  68. My dream prize would be a laptop or tablet.

  69. My dream prize would be… A motorized wheelchair… Sounds silly I know. But I’d really like one. It could change my life and it’s totally practical for me. I’m not interested in big holidays or thousands of pounds. Would love just this one thing, because that could change my life for many years to come. I’d be able to go out again (once I get over my Agoraphobia), I’d be able to use it to get around in my own home. That, to me, is my perfect prize… We can but dream ey?

  70. As for a viable option… I’d say things like tablets are great to go for. It’s not brand specific when it comes to reading ebooks especially, where as a Kindle is Kindle specific, Nook for Nook and so on. At least with tablets, like the iPad mini, you can use them for everything.

    Other giveaways people are interested in is Gift Cards, especially for places like Amazon. Because they can use them for not only books, but many things.

    There are signed swag giveaways, signed merchandise is amazing and seems to go down really well with participants. You can have signed merchandise for books, author specific merchandise, even movies or tv programs that are based on books. For example an Author could sign a movie poster and so on.

    Offering up an advertising space on your site is always something that a lot of people will be interested in. Likewise advertising space in your magazine. All sorts of people with book related things could enter for those so it’d really open up the overall “reach” of the promo.

    Just a few ideas. I’ll have a think and see if I can come up with something else…

  71. My dream prize would be a 1968 Camaro.

    That aside, a new Dell laptop would be nice.

  72. My dream prize would be a house, but I don’t think that you would be able to get me that 😉
    But the iPad Mini sounds awesome too 😀

  73. My dream prize is a Macbook ’cause I’ve been wanting to get into design and it’s the computer of choice of many graphic designers I know. 😛 Since Macs are a bit expensive next on my list is an iPad (or iPad mini) because it’s great for storing ebooks of all formats and for net browsing, etc. I already have an iPad but I would love one for my sister.

  74. My dream prize would be a Macbook Air!

  75. Judith R. says

    My dream prize is an Amazon.com gift card – to buy lots of books.

  84. Renata S says

    Amazon Gift Cards are great, because I can use them for everything. Apple products and e-readers are dream prizes (I’m dying to try a Nook). And gift cards to Barnes and Noble are great also.
    Gift cards to fancy hotels are dream prizes as well.

  85. Suzanne Lucero says

    A laptop would be great, preloaded with whichever program is best for writing so I don’t have to sit at the family computer (which is in the living room) to finish writing my book. (Well, you asked.) Short of that, Amazon gift cards in larger denominatons would go over nicely.

  93. I don’t think you can go amiss with an iPad mini or an Amazon gift card (especially with this particular audience), but other things that come to mind are kitchen appliances (KitchenAid, BlendTec blender, etc.) or something that people talk about getting to improve themselves but never seem to find the money or time for–Rosetta Stone, perhaps?

  95. My dream prize would be to own the first edition to every novel out there. Who wouldn’t want that? 🙂

  96. Karen Marino says

    Well being the total book nerd that I am – I’d love to meet one of my favorite authors. Most don’t come to Wisconsin so a trip to one of their meet and greets with the opportunity to get a autographed copy of their book would be a thrill.
