One Year, One Month, One Day, One Incredible Giveaway!

Today is my one year, one month, and one day blogiversary! *Tosses confetti* Thanks for coming by to celebrate with me!

My fabulous writing / blogging bff, Jessie Humphries at The B-Word and I started our blogs at virtually the same time, holding hands and fumbling through the dark together. And when you fumble together, it’s only appropriate to celebrate together. Especially when it adds to the epicness of it.

Because oh my goodness, THE EPIC.

Here’s the thing. We love you guys! We’ve been constantly amazed over the past one year, one month, and one day at how welcoming, supportive, helpful, kind and hilarious you all are. We wanted to show our gratitude.

So, we are giving away to one lucky winner......

(Drum roll, please)


Always wanted an e-reader? Here’s your chance to win! Already have one? You can get your choice of a gift certificate to Amazon, your choice of books from The Book Depository, or if you’re in the U.S., books from your favorite indie bookstore! This giveaway is even open internationally! (Where you live might affect the prize available to you. You’d have a choice of Amazon if it’s available in your country, or books from The Book Depository anywhere in the world.)

The giveaway opens today, on my one year, one month, one day blogiversary, and ends next Monday (July 23) at midnight EST, on Jessie’s one year, one month, one day blogiversary.

a Rafflecopter giveaway


What? You want even more chances to win? Head on over to Jessie Humphries: The B-Word, if not for more chances, then do it because Jessie rocks! Plus, I hear she’s offering free spooning.

I can't say "holy hotness" ... the phrase I use is Holy Handgrenades! Is that good enough?

Cool giveaway. I'm curious, are you and your friend splitting the cost of the prizes or is someone donating them to you for advertising? (Sorry, the "how do you work this" part of me is curious!)
