I’ve never posted more than once in a day before, but I wanted to tell you about a giveaway I’m hosting. Valentine’s Day is in a week and I want to celebrate the love we’ve all shared for blogging, reading and writing.
For every 33 (because that’s how old I am) followers on this blog, I’ll give away a prize. Ex. 33 followers = one prize, 66 followers = two prizes, 99 followers = three prizes and so on.  To win:

2.)    Leave a comment telling me which of the prizes listed below you are interested in winning = one entry
3.)    Post an announcement/link to this giveaway on your webpage, blog, twitter, facebook etc. and leave me a link in the comments below = one entry for EACH announcement/link.
4.)    Add a second announcement/link to my “Space Tales” Contest (see the sidebar) on your webpage, blog, twitter, facebook etc. and leave me a link in the comments below = one entry for EACH announcement/link.
5.)    Check back on Valentine’s Day to see if you’ve won!
Isn’t that easy? Good luck!

Finally, I'm able to leave a comment. I'll take Gresham or Patterson--either one. :)

I guess you were right--just a glitch in the system.

Hi there. *waves* Newest follower here, and fellow writer. Nice to 'meet' you. :)

I'd love #1 (GC), but would put the Woolf as close 2nd choice.

Fun contest.

The Amazon Gift Card would be awesome. Other than that, the hardback Michael Crichton or Jude Devereaux would be wonderful. I also posted to my twitter account @sherrycahill
