Contests and Contests and Awards...Oh My!


Beth Revis is having a contest to celebrate her phenomenal book deal. She has two, OMG! fabulous prize packages that she has spent way too much time putting together for two lucky winners. Go enter!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In a moment of total insanity, Shannon Messenger is giving away an autographed copy of Hush, Hush to celebrate 400 followers! Yes, you read that right - 400 followers!

Check out her blog for the list of entry rules.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Courtney, our lovely Southern Princess, is having a mega-monsteriffic giveaway to celebrate 100 followers. The prizes are too many and too grand to list here, so you will have to bop over to her blog for the full revelation. If you choose not to enter this one, that's okay. 'Cause I REALLY want to win!! Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Valerie @ I Should Be Writing is giving away a brand new, hardback copy of Guardian of the Dead. Go check it out!

And now for the awards. GunDiva was sweet enough to brighten my day with the Sunshine Award (which I've been wanting forever, because my favorite color is yellow!). This award is to be shared with faithful and supportive commenters. I think I'm supposed to share it with 10 bloggers, but that's too many. I'm going to pass it to 6, no-fail, always-dependable faces - ones I KNOW I will see when I check my comments. Thanks for your support!

And Felicia, from Little Secret of Me, gave me the Your Blog is a Treasure Award. I haven't seen this one around, so I'm pretty excited. It didn't come with any rules, so I will just pass it along to 5 blogs I treasure.


Hatshepsut: The Writing of a Novel
Putting Pen to Paper
The Bookshelf Muse
The Write Worship
The Sound of rain


I would love to give this award to so many others, but I know it will find its way to all of you. I think they mean more when we limit the numbers.

I def agree that awards mean more when we limit their numbers. I have four to hand out, FOUR, I can't afford the post space! Ha! I like yours, they are shiny and different.

Thanks for all the contest info!!

Congrats on the awards, and thanks for the heads-up about the various contests.

In a completely unrelated note, I came across some posts I think you would find really helpful: "the why chromosome" about getting teen boys reading and writing. The blogger is a multiply published male YA writer. His blog is called Ghost Medicine at http://ghostmedicine.blogspot.com/.Reading the posts made me thing of you and your teaching.

Ohlala! Those contests look great- I'd only seen one.

Thank you for the treasure award. I adore all the awards you've sent my way. My daughter will like this one- she's on a pirate kick right now. The little monkey wanders around singing, "Yo ho, Yo ho, a pirate's life for me."

Shannon, I am so very thrilled and honored that you would pick me. Was it because you saw me outside your house, jumping up and down screaming, "pick me, pick me?" =)
