Our 10,000 Hits Shrinking Violet Contest

Dear Friends,

Our Shrinking Violet official blogmeter says we are getting closer and closer to 10,000 hits. Wow! To commemorate the occasion, Robin and I are hosting a celebratory contest. If you'd like to enter, all you have to do is post a reply here (just say hello or whatever you'd like!) before the meters rolls over to 10,000. You can read it at the bottom of our blog. Easy squeezy.

Once the meter turns over, we will close the contest, and then we hold a random drawing from all the entries.

First prize: Nifty cool Banned Book bracelet. A must-have accessory.

Second prize: Autographed copy of Robin's THEODOSIA AND THE SERPENTS OF CHAOS
mailed to you, or your favorite kid, an after-school program, your favorite teacher or librarian.

Third prize: Autographed copy of my book THE ONE WHERE A KID NEARLY JUMPS TO HIS DEATH . . . mailed to you, or your directed donation.

Fourth Prize: EITHER Robin will come to your home, critique your manuscript, walk your pets, and bake you her amazing lemon cake, OR we'll send you some great chocolate. We haven't quite decided on this one yet. It will be a surprise. ~:-)

So, get 'yer replies in, folks-the meter is rolling!

Peace,
Mary

Edited to add:

I've been trying to leave a comment for this post since MONDAY, but blogger wouldn't let me in! Argh! I'm giving up and adding an addendum to Mary's original message.

Mary is a terrible tease! Even so, if anyone would rather have a 10 pg mss critique instead chocolate, I'd be happy to oblige, especially, if like me, you're trying to avoid all this chocolate that certain temptresses wave in front of you.

Although I'll do it at my house if you don't mind.

Kimberly Lynn, I'm hoping your groceries survived!

Robin

I love your blog--even the name of it--and the way you talk about introverts. So many of us writers seem to be introverts, and it's really helpful to see being an introvert being written about in a positive way--never mind ideas for book promotion for us introverts! And this looks like a fun contest.

Did Mary mention something about a contest? Autographed books?

Pant. Pant. Wheeze.

OMG!

The blogmeter is at 9, 850! I'll have to leave the groceries down in the car to defrost while I enter this.

Okay, I'll admit it - this was what it took to finally get me to comment.

I've been loving the blog for a while, though.

Anne Marie said...

I think your 4th prize is the best! But wouldn't poor Robin possibly have to travel quite a ways? Still, chocolate is good, too.

Stephanie Humphreys said...

Love contests and love your blog. It actually gives me hope that someday I might be good at public speaking and booksignings.

Dear Anne-Marie,

You can pretty much count on that prize #4 being chocolate.

Robin definitely won't be do any in vivo book critiques, pet walking or baking. My bad. I'm a terrible tease.

:-)

I don't even need any pets walked! I'll totally take the chocolate.

My dogs George and Patch insisted I enter. They noticed prize #4 as I was scrolling down. They have gone to get the leashes and are patiently awaiting Robin's arrival by my front door.

P.S. Patch said to remind you to bring the frisbee.

Congratulations!

The counter was at 9920 when I clicked in. Can you feel the excitement crackling in the air?
