Yes. More Contests. You Guys Tired of These Posts? Keep 'Em Coming?

I've been sort of offline (mostly lurking) this week, trying to be good and get some words down. I got a little bit done, but not nearly enough. Next week, I will be unplugging completely, so I won't be posting or commenting or reading. {:-( Except for the First Page Blogfest next Friday. There's still time to sign up and join in the fun. My 4,107th version of my opening will be up. Okay, so maybe there aren't that many versions, but I really have lost count of how many times I've rewritten it.

Now for the good stuff. :D

1. Sarah at Falen Formulates Fiction is having a writing contest to celebrate reaching 100 followers and she's giving away a ton of cool stuff! HURRY! This one ends today! (March 26th)

2. Karen at Novels During Naptime is having a fun Spring giveaway to celebrate reaching 101 Followers. She's giving away some very cute office supplies! I don't know about you, but I LOVE office supplies. Ends April 17th. Be sure to let her know I sent you. :)

3. Jennifer at Unedited is giving away THREE $10 gift cards for Amazon to celebrate her birthday and reaching 300 followers. Ends March 29th.

4. Frankie Diane at Frankie Writes is having a contest to celebrate reaching 400 followers and she's giving away personalized, signed copy of The Body Finder plus other fabulous goodies! Be sure to let her know I sent you. Ends March 30th.

5. Several of the contests I blogged about last week are still going, so be sure to check those out if you haven't yet.


6. Fun giveaway by Summer at And This Time, Concentrate... to celebrate completing her novel. Ends March 31st.

That's it. Have a great week, everyone! See you all next Friday! :)

  9. Thanks for the contest info, and have a productive unplugged week!

  10. Thanks for the contest 411!! Stop by my blog, I left you an award this morning!!

    Have a great week :)

  11. Okay, first things first. Hi Abby. I found your blog from Justine Dell's and I thought I would stop by, comment and follow.

    Feel free to stop by my blog and do the same.

    As to your post, no ... not tired. Contests seem to be the lifesblood of the blogosphere so we certainly welcome them.

    In fact if it weren't for contests and awards, and other bloggers stopping by, commenting and following, who the hell would even look at our blogs?

    I'm just joking but I'm also pretty new to all of this so sometimes it seems like that's all there is and it's just a big merry go round. Please don't think I'm being negative, just trying to be cynical in a desperate attempt for laughs. Anyway, in the meantime please keep it up, love the post, love the blog, let's all see where they can take us.

  12. Damn, I forgot to add that your blog is actually pretty cool. Much cooler than most. I love the style of your title, its like an urban graf mixed with cursive that ... excites the eye and opens the mind.

    Great way to bring new readers in I imagine.

  13. Always love hearing about contests :)
