(Closed) Ichiban Giveaway

Why ichiban giveaway一番 or “ichiban” literally means number one… and today, June 22, 2016, Paper Wishes reached #1 in Teen Fiction on Wattpad!

I wouldn’t even have known about this huge milestone if it wasn’t for the amazing Wattpad user @AuthorZ93! Thank you, thank you, thank you for sending me that congratulatory message! Without you, I definitely would have missed out on this. (; ̄Д ̄) (I’m just so darned grateful for my Lucky Stars! What would I do without you guys?!)

#1 IN TEEN FICTION (I’m just a little excited. Hehehe. Can you tell?)

Thank you so much to everyone who has read, commented, and starred Paper Wishes on Wattpad. Thank you to my precious readers who have taken the time to read Paper Wishes multiple times, who have created beautiful fan art, and recommended my book to their friends. Bless you guys so, so much for all of your support. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that anyone would want to read something I wrote, and now I have a book with nearly 700k reads that reached #1 in Teen Fiction THANKS TO ALL OF YOU. You are all so patient (when it takes me forever to reply to comments and messages), understanding (when I can’t accept read requests–I’m really sorry about this!), and supportive (the random messages you send and messages you leave on my profile really brighten my day). You are all such a blessing. Whew, I’m getting weirdly emotional here…

Anyway, to commemorate this big event I put together a giveaway because that’s sort of my thing. Lol. This giveaway is very “magical girl” themed, as you may notice from the prizes. (*゚▽゚*) To enter the giveaway use the Rafflecopter widget below or you can enter using the “Giveaway” tab on Facebook! (≧◡≦)
