Congratulations to "LiliesU2" of Worcester, MA whose entry number was generated by randomizer.org. The winner is receiving a $25.00 gift card that can be used at either On the Border, Maggiano's, Chili's, or Macaroni Grill.
A special thank you to EVERYONE who participated in my first blog contest. I got twice as many responses as I originally hoped for, and my blog received over 200 hits throughout the duration of the contest. For my first giveaway, I'm calling it a decent success.
I have not yet decided which book I'm going to read. There are a lot of outstanding choices, and I have made a list of twelve that I definitely want to tackle at some point. The good news is, I recently earned $5.00 in Borders Bucks, so whatever I go purchase tomorrow will be cheap! Always an added bonus!! I'll keep you posted on what I end up selecting for the long weekend.
Again, thanks so much for your participation and support. My goal is to make this blog more popular over the next few months, especially as I begin wrapping up the first shareable draft of my manuscript. Please continue visiting and checking out my posts.
I'm already preparing my next giveaway. Details will be posted in mid-September. Teacher's will definitely want to get in for this deal, and the rest of you can put in on behalf of a teacher you know. Also, if you have any ideas for upcoming contests I could run, I'd love to hear them. Send me an e-mail or post a comment below.
Everyone enjoy the holiday!
