Blog Jog & Blogmania - Contests

What are "Blog Jog" and "Blogmania"?

"Blog Jog" and "Blogmania" are special days where several blogs join together for an extravaganza. They're ways to become acquainted with new blogs, make new blog friends, and possibly to win great prizes.

Blog Jog

Blog Jog is this week ~ Mother's Day, May 9th, 2010 all day.

Start with my blog then follow the links to other blogs.

I'm going to have a contest to win a free pdf copy of "Always A Bridesmaid".

How do you win?

Simple. Leave a comment for me on my blog with a way to contact you.


Blogmania is a lot like Blog Jog. Start here at my blog, then follow the links. About 175 blogs will participate, each with a prize valued at a minimum of $100. That means the retail value of all the prizes will be a minimum of $17,500. It boggles my mind.

Pretty darned awesome, right?

And my prize is really cool. I mean you'll want to make sure you don't miss a chance to win it. Bookmark this now, set your calendars to remind you, and visit often.

It's a Kobo.

A what?

A new ebook reader that will make the Kindle look obsolete.

ALSO if you're an author and would like free promotion, please read on. I will accept donations of pdf novels (anything except erotic - sorry, not my rules, but Blogmania's) to be loaded onto this Kobo for the lucky winner.

I'll be promoting all the books to be included on the Kobo, on this blog, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, and around the web.

If you're interested in this promotional offer, (free other than the book donation) email me at:

Be sure to put "KOBO Ebook donation" in the subject line of your email. Please also include a copy of your book's cover, blurb, brief excerpt, and purchase link in the same email.

So why am I not offering the KOBO reader and books for Blog Jog?

The KOBO isn't out yet.

Secondly, I need time to gather books to load onto it to make it a really super prize.

How to get more than one entry?

Again, simple.

If you're not already one of my followers, follow and let me know in your comment for me on the assigned days that you are one of my followers.

For another entry yet, Tweet about my contests and let me know you've done so - in the comment please.

Good luck!
