The Fabulous Follower Fiesta begins....

I made it to 500 Followers!!!!!

OMG right?

And Michelle Zink (author of Prophecy of Sisters!! OMG right!?) was my 500th follower. That magic number gets a special prize that will be announced Monday.

Starting Monday, each day I will conducting a Fabulous Follower Fiesta drawing to celebrate meeting so many wonderful people over this last year.

This contest is for my blogger followers only (listed on left hand side). Unfortunately this probably does not include my FB networked blog followers or my RSS followers. Those are tracked in several different places and are too hard to keep up with :(

On Friday, I will do a drawing for the Grand Puba Prize, which is also a surprise.

So please make sure you are an official follower on the side so I can count you in :)

Also - if you comment on the daily post, I'll throw your name in the hat an extra time. It will be a random drawing that my daughter will choose out of a hat.

Trust me - I have a lot of books to give away: Marketing books, New Hardcovers, Writing craft books, Maybe even an ARC or 2.

All are new! Not used!

Thank you so much for your support!

Congrats again on 500 followers. The contest sounds fun and those books sound very helpful. But you're really going to draw the names out of a hat? What if you have hundreds of entries? :) Sounds like you have your work cut out for you (and it better be a big hat).

It was my honor to be your 500th Follower, but please donate my prize to someone else in line. I'm fortunate enough to get plenty of free books these days, and I'd much rather have one of your readers get one!

Thanks so much. I'll be watching to see who wins!

Glad to see your having such a good time with the blog! Mine has gone up, though much more slowly than yours! :)
