Random Spring(?) Cleaning Contest

Monday, June 3, 2013
UPDATE: Comments are now closed, keep an eye out for the blog post listing the winners...


Yeah, I know it's not spring. (At least not here in Florida.) Sir was teasing me over the weekend, saying I need a lip balm intervention...

Um, He might be right. LOL This is what I found I had today after cleaning my office.

And that's JUST in my office, not counting the tubes I have stashed everywhere, like in the bathroom, bedroom, my purse, etc. LOL

That's beside the point.

Today, I moved out my two smaller desks, moved in Hubby's (now) old desk for me, and he started assembling his new IKEA Expedit desk.

That was a good thing, because my floor space in my office was shrinking at an exponentially alarming rate. LOL I desperately needed to do some cleaning and flinging and organizing.

Good news -- I found swag! LOL So here's the deal. I've got a couple of swag bags, and found my cover flats, bookmarks, etc.

I'm going to do a giveaway for twenty lucky people. I'll draw randomly using random.org's number generator to pick the winners. A couple will win swag bags, the rest will win envelopes full of assorted goodies like bookmarks, cover flats, autographed bookplates, etc.

You must be 18 years of age or older (or of legal age in your place of residence). Open world-wide (unless a giveaway is illegal where you live).

How do you enter? Simply leave me a comment on this post. And make sure you don't post as "anonymous" or I won't be able to identify you. LOL If it wants to leave you anon, then make sure to put your name and/or e-mail address in the comment - replace the @ with AT and the . with DOT and put a space between the words to stymie spam bots. :)

I'll close the post to comments by 9pm Eastern time on Wednesday, June 5th and post the winners in a new blog shortly thereafter.

CHECK BACK to see if you won!!!

You have 48 HOURS to email me if you're a winner. Otherwise, I'll go down the line and pick new winners, so make SURE you check back in!





GO! :)

    Sweet! I love burts bees! I have a few of the pomegranate ones. It's my fav.



  1. Vanessa said...:

    Hi Tymber, it is well and truly winter where I am and the cold and rain have finally truly arrived so for someone to be 'spring cleaning' then I am full of admiration even if they say it was out of necessity and space was required!
    The necessity I see, is that more great stories will be coming our way so actually I am being selfish.... LOL!
    Have a good week!

  1. MaryMary said...:

    Hey it's my birthday tomorrow, I would love some swag as a present :) Good luck with the cleaning, that is on my list as well - ugh.

  1. Unknown said...:

    I became a fan of your books after reading the Love Slave series. Your books are heartwarming and at times pee your pants laughing funny; not to mention wet your knickers hot too!!! I'd love to win a prize!! :)

  1. Unknown said...:

    A lip balm addict? Hubby is one too. I find tubes everywhere. But as for swag would totally love some.

  1. Rosie said...:

    I also need a lip balm intervention. I did cleaning about month ago and found 10 tubes stashed in different places. Oops!

    Glad you found swag :)


  1. I opened the page to read the blog and first thing I saw was the pic of the Burt's lip balms... ya my drawers and desk look like that with lip balms all over the place lol I'm addicted to it. No you don't need an intervention, people like me will enable your love of lip balm :P

  1. Kathy L. said...:

    It's amazing what you find when you do a little spring cleaning. I always find what I've been looking for. It's like being a kid in a candy store. Love swag.

    While the calendar may be June--it was in the 40's this morning. That is not late Spring or early Summer.

    Love your stories, Tymber, irregardless what realm or name you write them as. My favorites are a tie: Love Slave (all of them) and Spider Bight (all of them). I love to reread them!

    I would love to have some swag, bookmarks, whatever!!!

  1. Debbie Raddatz said...:

    I would love some too please!!

  1. You KNOW I love you, chica! I think I may need an intervention, too. *sigh* I ended up with 3 tubes of lip balm while on vacation at Disney last week. I only brought ONE tho!!! LOL!!

    Tymber, would love some of your swag!

  1. Unknown said...:

    I too suffer from this affliction!! Of course it doesn't help that I live less than a mile from Target and work there as well. They are always putting Burts Bees on clearance. I just keep adding to my collection.

  1. Simone said...:

    There is nothing wrong with a lip balm/gloss addiction. You have to make sure you have multiples of your favourites in case they stop making them! And you really don't want to see how many I have stashed in my handbag. Love the DSMC series, is there going to be a new one soon? Any swag heading my way, would be happily accepted.

    Can't wait for more Triple Trouble books! :)

  1. I think my favorite book of yours is Fierce Radiance, wish that this one could become a series. It was so emotionally charged and had such wonderful characters. Thanks for writing it!

  1. katsemke said...:

    Oh how great would it be to win? Awesome! I just finished "Stoneface" last night. Love the relationship development and of course the "sex".
    Oh, lip balm collection. I am always finding tubes of lip balm. I keep them in my car in each desk at all 3 of my offices, my purses, my sock drawer, my home office nooks and crannies, just never know when one will pop up. If I have a choice would like a swag please ;)

  1. Riane said...:

    Swag swag swag!! I love swag. I could put some in the KBR swag pile for giveaways! :) Can't wait!
