Random Contest Time: Easy-peasey.

Wednesday, August 28, 2013
EDIT: The contest is now CLOSED. Thanks to everyone who entered! I'll post the number and the winners as soon as I get a chance. :) I also realized Monday is a holiday here in the US, and there isn't any mail, so the winners will get an extra day to reply. LOL 


Stay tuned for the next giveaway!


Took Hubby to the airport this morning. :( I've got nearly two weeks on my own while he's in Ohio visiting family. Had to get up waaaaaay too frakking early, but consoled myself with Starbucks and breakfast from McDonald's. LOL

I'm sure Gidget and I can get into plenty of trouble...

Yep, the screaming cats picture. You know what that means... CONTEST TIME!

Okay, as I mentioned on Facebook the other day, in the process of cleaning stuff up I put together ten envelopes of swag: bookmarks, autographed bookplate stickers and cover pics, etc.

Here's how you can possibly win one of these...

I've used random.org to pick a random number between 1-100. The ten people guessing the number or who are closest to the number will get it. In the event there's a tie between two people on opposite ends of the number, I'll either pick the one with the lower guess or pack another envelope. (Depends on how much pain I'm in after doing all the chores Hubby usually does in addition to writing. LOL Thank the Goddess for Flylady!)

ONE guess per person. Leave a comment in the...comments. If Blogger wants to make you "anonymous" make sure you put your name or handle in the comment so I have a way of identifying you. I will pick the winners on this Friday (8/30) at some point (when I remember to do it, to be honest LOL). I'll post it on my blog, and if you don't claim your prize by Sunday, I'll pick someone else, because I'll probably go to the post office on Monday and want to get them out the door.

Open to anyone in the world as long as you're of legal age in your place of residence, giveaways like this aren't prohibited where you live, no cash value, yadda-yadda-yadda legalese blah blah OH NOES TEH LEGALZZZZZ!

Good luck!
