Contest Time...My Birthday Bash Giveaway!

Saturday, January 16, 2010



It's true, my friends. My fourth 21st birthday (aka turning 24) is coming up, and in celebration of my birth on February 24th, I'm giving gifts to others! I'll admit, this is an excellent contest, and I'd love to win it myself...but, I'll send it your way instead!

One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift card to Amazon, as well as their very own copies of two of my favourite books:



In My Father's House by Ann Rinaldi



Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks by Lauren Myracle


Here's how to enter:

This is an international contest, so anyone can enter. The contest will close February 23, 2010 at 6 PM Mountain Time, so you have plenty of time to enter! Oh, and because I'm oldschool, I'm going to pick the winner out of a hat...excellent, eh? Enjoy!

  2. Happy 21st (+4?)!

    Thanks for checking out my site! It is a work in progress, which may or may not get more direction as it grows. I love yours! Very professional! How long have you had it up? Do you do your own HTML? How'd you get involved in book reviews, etc.?

    Take care!
