What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Monday, October 12, 2009


A reminder that this is the LAST WEEK for entering the lists my friends, the signing is *THIS SATURDAY* and that's when Wayne and Christopher will be signing the book.

This is it! The last part of the contest! I know, you're all SO excited. :-D So'm I. Also the end of this week marks the end of the other contest, the two-for-one book give away! So much is going on this week! I am a very busy Scribe!

This last week is going to be the hardest yet, and really the most simple too challenge wise.

This week the only thing you need to do, is to decide of you want to give some of your hard-earned points to someone else to give them a boost in this contest. Doing so is means you've got less of a chance to win, and they have more of one. So, let me know by 10/15/09 if you want to transfer what you've won to someone else in the contest.

And check out the post above to see what I was doing over the weekend!

Hmm interesting choice. I need to earn more points to make it worth giving away.
I am very impressed with how you are running your contest

Can you show how many points each of us has?

Scribe, once again I am befuddled. But who one the book that we had to use 100 words or less to describe a person that we think should get it?
