Being Frank Book Giveaway!

Hi folks! I am giving away a copy of Being Frank on June 14th! Here are the rules for the giveaway:

1. In the comments section below, share a time when you were too honest for your own good OR when someone was too honest with you (keep it family friendly!)

2. Share this post so others can enter, too!

3. You get one entry per comment and two entries for each share. So share away! 🙂

4. The names will be compiled and pulled from a hat by one of my kiddos (or hubby) on June 14 and announced by 9pm that night. If the winner does not respond by the 15th (at 9pm), another name will be drawn from the hat.

5. After you share this – enjoy this preview of a friend’s book, Maya was Grumpy! I will purchase a copy of Maya in September… and then give it away here. So keep your eyes open for that announcement!

Free cookies? Oh yeah…

My blogging schedule is all mixed up this week, but hey…that’s the way the cookie crumbles. And speaking of cookies, my good friend and fellow blogger, Kristi M, is giving away Chocolate Dipped Ginger Spice Moravian Cookies as part of her first ever blog contest! You can click the picture to the left OR the link below. Either one will take you to her scrumptious blog, Southern as Biscuits, and her blog contest! http://southernasbiscuits.blogspot.com/2011/02/no-such-thing-as-free-lunch-but-how.html

There are a few things you need to do – but you’ll have to go to her blog to get the necessary contest info. And if you win the cookies, you’ll have to let me know how they taste. I can almost smell the yummy goodness…

And in other (and just as exciting) blogging news, author Carol Baldwin is featured in a blog interview HERE. I am thrilled to say I know this sweet and talented woman!

My teenager is excited, too, b/c Carol is teaching the Teen Track writing workshop next weekend. Seriously…my DD has a countdown and informs me every day how many days are left until the conference. Makes me happy!

Do you have a blog contest you want me to share on my blog? email me! (and if you can’t find my email, just leave a comment and I’ll figure out how to email you!)
