#OutlanderCountdown Giveaways July 10 1-3 pm Pacific, 2-4 pm Mountain, 3-5 pm Central, 4-6 pm Eastern, 9-11 pm BST, 10 pm – 12 am CEST July 11 6-8 am AEST, 8-10 am NZST

Outlander Ambassadors are offering two books signed by Diana Gabaldon to people who tweet #OutlanderCountdown with us on July 10 (July 11 in Australia and New Zealand):

1. A first-edition, first printing copy of Written In My Own Heart’s Blood (aka MOBY) with the “flyng” typo on page 814.
2. A trade paperback series tie-in copy of Outlander. (The trade paperback is the bigger book.)

There are NO geographical restrictions to these giveaways, but #OutlanderCountdown needs to be one of the top 100 hash-tags for the day according to Trendinalia. (If we fail to make this goal, I’m sure we can find a little something to offer as consolation prizes to our dedicated tweeps.) If #OutlanderCountdown is a top 50 hash-tag, a second series tie-in copy of Outlander will be awarded, again with no geographical restrictions.

At the conclusion of the event, a link to a page on OutlanderHub will become active. We will announce the link via Twitter, this blog and posts to Outlander Facebook pages. Participants will have 24 hours to enter their Twitter handles there to be entered into the random drawing for the books. Winners will be announced on Twitter through @OutlanderAmbass and @Reader_DG by 8 pm Pacific Daylight Time on July 11.

If your account is “locked” (your tweets are protected), you will NOT be eligible for the drawing, as your tweets will not count toward the trend effort. Before the event, go to your settings (the gear icon), then “Security and privacy,” scroll to “Privacy” and UNCHECK the “Tweet privacy” “Protect my tweets” box to make your trend effort tweets visible. After the event, you can go back and check the box again.

See you all at the party on the #OutlanderCountdown live-time feed and thank you again for your efforts on behalf of all things Outlander!
