My life this week has been full of the word ‘thousand’. One thousand words here for that contest, one thousand points here for that game, and one thousand hits on my website!! There are a few others but now I’m trying to think of them, I’m coming up blank…
So for the one thousand hits on my website, THANK YOU! Without the support and interest of my friends, family and fellow writers (wow, that’s a lot of F words) I wouldn’t be the happy author I am today. I would have stumbled, fallen flat on my face (different kinds of F words) and no one would have picked me up or dusted me off or encouraged me to go on. For that, I am eternally grateful. So I’m going to have the giveaway I promised when I reached the triple zeros. The prize book is Eloisa James’ Desperate Duchesses in trade paperback size and because it’s October and Breast Cancer awareness month, I’ll also throw in a pink ribbon hard cover notebook. For every comment I get on this post, your name goes into a hat and you have a chance to win the book. As a bonus (incentive really) if the winner is from Australia, I’ll include a big (hold out your hand and stretch your fingers…that’s how big) chocolate frog from Haighs Chocolate who happen to make the best frogs ever! If you’re overseas, I have a few little bits and pieces of pretties I will send with the book. If the winner is in Australia, you can choose the flavour from milk, dark or peppermint. Sound okay? If you’re not into historical I have a couple of other books to choose from such as a signed copy of Alexis Morgan’s Darkness Unknown or Laurell K Hamilton’s Swallowing Darkness. Totally up to you! Contest closes 7th November 2010.
In the meantime, I’m going to be on a drive to boost my Facebook page numbers so I’ll run a separate contest for that. The link is here. For everyone who likes the page and then likes the contest status, you’ll go into the hat for another prize. Then I’ll get one of my beautiful kids to draw the names for both contests.
Right now though, I have to get back to editing Scandal’s Mistress so I can submit my baby =) Have a great weekend and good luck!

Hmm... You say other people eat chocolate too? Shut up! Nah, can I send chocolate overseas? I was thinking there might be a customs issue but maybe I'll check it out. This is a really great excuse for me to go to Haighs! Oh and thanks for stroking my ego =) I like it!

I'm a published author but I'm still mostly stumbling about in the dark looking for the right paths so this blog is about that, though sometimes something will give the me the shits and I'll have a bit of a rant. I'll try not to be offensive but occasionally my mouth opens without asking my brain's permission so I'll apologise in advance.
