Draculata Nest Cover Poll and Giveaway

SORRY FOLKS. THE POLL GADGET IS NOT WORKING AND WON'T ACCEPT ANY VOTES AFTER THE FIRST ONE. IF I CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO FIX IT, I WILL AND THE GIVEAWAY WILL BE EXTENDED. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE...
... OR FOR THE PATIENCE YOU HAD BEFORE YOU WASTED YOUR TIME TRYING TO VOTE!
   Actually, it seems to be working for some folks and not for others. Argh! I've spent half my life trying to fix something on a computer! Anyway, until I get it fixed I'll accept votes as an email to jhundley50@gmail.com - just follow the guidelines below...

   Happy Friday, everyone! At least it’s Friday here in North Carolina, USA.  I know I have a view viewers on the other side of the globe, and I’m unable to do the math or Google the time zones, so if it’s not Friday in your neck of the woods, Happy Friday in spirit!
   I’ve got a contest/giveaway to present to you this week, but first let me give y’all an update on what’s going on in my world…
   You know how life and life-style changes can be stressful, right? Okay, maybe some of you don’t. But, let me tell you, especially at my age, they are very much so. I entered back into the nine-to-five, 40-hours-a-week work world this week after being in school for the past two-and-a-half years. I’m having a hard time making the adjustment from running here and there all day to sitting on my ass for eight hours at a time. I can’t seem to find time to do essential activities like grocery shopping, laundry and house cleaning. And, worst of all, this is the first thing I’ve written all week!
   Now, I lived this way for most of my life up until I got laid off from my IT job back in 2009 and I used to manage okay. And in September of 2009 I made the transition to not working pretty seamlessly. Hmmm… what does it all mean? Well, the challenge I’m most concerned with meeting is finding chunks of time to write.
   Patience. It’ll happen. I’m sure. There’s more of the Red Wolf story to be told, at least another novel’s worth, and I don’t think the characters will allow me to keep it to myself much longer.
  
   Meanwhile, copies of the latest draft of The Dragon of Doughton Park went out to beta readers this week. My cover artist, Ray DeLotell, submitted the final offerings for The Draculata Nest and is working on conceptions for Dragon as we speak.

  And that brings me to this week’s poll/contest/giveaway…

  Help us decide on the new cover for The Draculata Nest!  Please cast a vote for one of the following art pieces (Vote by number – 1, 2, 3, or 4). Voting buttons are at the top of the page. Anyone who votes for the winning selection is eligible to receive a free copy of The Draculata Nest in ebook format (Kindle or Nook only – that’s all that’s available at this time). The voting will continue until the next blog post (roughly a week).



   To claim your free copy of DN, send an email to jhundley50@gmail.com along with the cover you voted for, an email address to which I can send your gift book, and the format of your ebook reader (again, only Kindle or Nook).

   Yeah, obviously you can cheat by waiting to see what selection is winning and send the email. I trust y’all. But all emails must be time-stamped before the contest ends when the next blog is posted.

   And if you don’t win, you can always purchase a copy by clicking one of the links below.
ebook for Kindle           ebook for Nook        DN in paperback




   Until next time… Happy Reading!
