20,000th Post ~ Gift Card Giveaway

$50 gift card



As I approach the 20,000th post for my blog, I wanted to do a little something to thank all of you that stop by. A year ago when I started my little blog, I never imagined I'd have so many people come by to read, comment and hopefully find something new to read. The comments from authors as well as the contacts I've made in the publishing world continue to astound me. Thank you for making me feel like what I have to say is important :) I hope you keep coming back to check things out.

Now on to the RULES ~~

  1. Open to residents of the US only.
  2. Post a comment here. You MUST LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS OR ACTIVE BLOG ADDRESS IN YOUR COMMENT. Any comment that DOES NOT INCLUDE this information WILL BE DELETED. I have to have a way to contact you if you win!!!!
  3. If you blog this contest and leave a link in your comment so I can check it out, you will receive an extra entry to the contest.
Contest open through April 30th. Winner will be announced on May 1st.
