March DVD #Giveaway at Let Me Tell You a Story (#JLBgivesawayaDVD)

Yes, yes I did just use a She's the Man gif. You are welcome.
It's here! The beginning of March is here, which also means the beginning of yet another new blog feature here at Let Me Tell You A Story! *cue applause* After Kristalyn was gracious enough to host the Ever After DVD giveaway on her blog during If I Speak True's blog tour, I decided it was time to share some of my favorite classic movies. (And by classic I don't mean super-old--all of the movies came out in my lifetime, and I'm only 35, so...) This entire idea came about from 1) a Twitter convo about sharing my favorite movies and 2) the fact that in If I Speak True, Dahlia mentions a couple that she loves... one being The Princess Bride, and another being--yep, you guessed it--Ever After (you can read a bit more about this and the Shakespeare book IIST was loosely based off of, HERE). 

So... even though I've yet to come up with a cool name for this DVD giveaway feature thing (anyone want to throw a few ideas my way?),  that's not going to stop me from throwing the first one! ;) I believe you'll recognize quite a few faces in this movie... one of them being a particularly young Leo who plays more than one character in....



THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK!!!!! DUN DUN DUN... Oh... the angst I had for this one!!! (My poor Leo! Or, one of the Leos...  ahem...) 

Le blurb: The cruel King Louis XIV of France has a secret twin brother who he keeps imprisoned. Can the twin be substituted for the real king?

YES. And, you guys, I am totally shocked right now because, in pulling up a photo for Rafflecopter, I've learned something new! GUESS WHO WROTE THE NOVEL OF THIS???? Alexandre Dumas! (How did I not know this????) Alexandre Dumas wrote... are you ready for this? The Count of Monte Cristo! Which totally and completely comes to play in the second book in the Flora series, OPEN THY HEART! (I had no idea about this and am completely tripping out about it! It's just crazy!) So, as you can see by my exclamation point overload, I am even more excited to share it now! And... here it is:
a Rafflecopter giveaway

But WHY am I doing this monthly DVD giveaway, you ask? Well, honestly, the main reason is because I love sharing my favorite stuff with people. Plus, any time I can interact with you, my internet friends (and meet new ones), I call that a WIN. Hence the new schedule including Reader Interviews and this monthly giveaway, and perhaps one or other two things as well (depending on where I am, writing-wise.) Which means... I'm not going to force any entries. There will always be free ones, and perhaps one or two other ways to enter, depending on what's going on. BUT, even if you only do the free entries, I *would* love for you to share by word of mouth so that others might have the opportunity to enter (and I might have the opportunity to meet new friends to share virtual cookies and coffee with! YAY!).

So yeah... I think that's it. Like I said, if you think of a title for this feature, throw it at me. Feel free to come back and enter every day (contest runs through April 4th). :) And now, I'm off to work on Rowan's novella. Have a blessed Monday, everybody! :D

This is an awesome giveaway! That's one thing I loved about IIST... Ever After and The Princess Bride are two of my absolute favorite movies ever. :)

What a fun idea! And Alexandre Dumas is one of my all-time favorite authors. He just blows my mind!

I already own this movie, so I did not enter, but I'll definitely spread the word for such a fun giveaway. :D
