1000th Blog Post Contest

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

It’s hard to believe it was just two years ago that I was celebrating my 500th blog post . . . and next Thursday, I’ll be posting my 1,000th treatise on life, writing, movies, TV, etc. And you know I can’t do that without holding a contest.

Entering the Drawing
Because I’m on deadline, I’m going to make the rules of entry as simple as possible. Submit as many comments as you would like to that are RELATED TO THE TOPIC OF THE POST OR RESPONDING TO SOMEONE ELSE’S COMMENT on any post dated between yesterday, July 19, 2010 (the Writer’s Window post featuring Tamara Leigh) and next Wednesday, July 28, 2010, at 10 p.m. Central time.

Earn extra entries for each person you send over to leave comments and having them say you recommended they visit KayeDacus.com to enter the contest.

The Prize
The prize for the contest is a Big Ol’ Box o’ Books containing:

Contest is limited to entrants in the United States (or with a U.S. address), as the box o’ books will have to be sent Media Mail, which is available only in the U.S.

And as I straighten up around the house this week, I may find even more books to add to the Big Ol’ Box o’ Books!

Let the commenting begin!

        The Silent Governess was my favorite of these three by Julie Klassen. Definitely one I plan to read again.
