Awesome Places to Win Free Stuff

Okay, people, this must be the week for awesome giveaways, because right after I announced my own contest, I started getting announcements for a bunch of others. There is some seriously cool stuff being given away this week--so I just have to share with you all. Consider it a benefit of reading my blog.

First, though, in my previous post, I announced the two winners of "Saving Madeline" by Rachel Ann Nunes, but I did not announce the winners of the multiple drawings for Joyce DiPastena's "Illuminations of the Heart." Those winners have been chosen and they are:

Jennifer B. won the autographed copy of "Illuminations of the Heart."

Park Avenue Princess won the $10 gift certificate.

Elizabeth Morgan won the $10 Deseret book gift certificate.

Congratulations to all the winners!

Okay, so now here's where you can go to win cool stuff:

Rachelle Christensen is giving away a Ribbon Box or ScrapMaBob on her blog, and all entrants will be entered into another drawing to win a Scrapbox, valued at $1,200. This thing is huge and way cool, people, so run over and sign up, fast!

Next cool giveaway is over at Cindy Beck's blog. She's giving away two books--and you can enter to win either or both by just leaving a comment. (Hint to you writers--one's a writing book.)

Anne Bradshaw is giving away a historical novel set in the pioneer era, by renouned LDS author, Shirley Bahlman. Ann always has great giveaways, so if you check back at her blog, you have a chance to win something every week.

And then, if you want to win a copy of Zion's Promise: Amidst War's Alarms, by Chris Jefferies, scroll down and sign up for my giveaway. Instructions are in the post just below this one.

So there you have it. Your chance to win lots of awesome prizes. Keep checking back--I have more things to give away in the upcoming months.

Also, don't forget--The Mazerunner is being released on October 6th. Make sure to grab a copy. Unless you've already pre-ordered it, in which case you can just plan to grab a copy for someone else.

In other news: Did I mention that my denial of summer might be coming to an end this week? Yeah, the weather man is predicting some serious cold temperatures in two days--which makes me feel a keen sense of loss. Put away the swimsuits, break out the sweatshirts. Whaaaaaaa.

Don't worry. I'll get over it. I suppose it's time to break out the Halloween decorations as well, considering it's practically October already. Sheesh. Guess I ought to figure out how to get my enormous pumpkins from my backyard garden up onto my front porch. Maybe I'll roll them...


What's playing in my head today? Shooting Star by Poison.

I'm lamenting the loss of summer too, Nichole. We can commiserate together.

Thanks for entering the contest for the incredible products from The Original Scrapbox at my blog.
I'm so excited for fall weather, but a little sad to see the warm leaving too. I'm jealous you've got some big pumpkins, but I guess I'll get over it when we go to the pumpkin patch at the Red Barn. :)

Thanks so much for mentioning my contest. I wondered why I was getting so many more entries than normal!

You are a true friend! (And I'm sorry that summer is ending, because I know how much you love it.)
