Happy New Year!

May your 2013 be awesome!

And also, this is my 1000th post at this blog!  To celebrate, I'm granting one ebook* wish to a randomly drawn name (not to exceed 1000 pennies**).  Your name goes in once for commenting (one per comment per person).  It goes in once more for being a follower here.  And, to make it interesting, it will go in one time for each of my other blogs you follow. 

So, it goes like this.  Mary Jones comments here, follows here, follows Tabula Rasa and The Guide - she gets four entries. 

People who don't comment here but follow elsewhere, don't get an entry.  Sorry.  The party is here today.  Comment, then go forth and follow.  And if you comment and already follow elsewhere, don't worry, I'll take care of it.  ;o)

Thanks for sharing The Writing Spectacle with me through 1000 posts!

* If you don't have an ereader, might I suggest downloading a copy of Kindle for PC?  It's free and it makes it easy to win contests like these.  Plus, it lets your friends who are only published in ebook form know you care.  =o)

**  That's $10.00.  I'm appreciative, but not rich.

Sorry.  Offer only good for U.S. only (unless Amazon and Canada have come to an agreement and Kindle can send books north of the border).


  1. Happy New Year, B.E. - and congrats on your 1000 post, that's quite the milestone :)

  2. Happy New Year to you, too, Janet! And thanks. It's been a fun ride and meeting all you incredible people has made the journey even better. :hugs:

  3. Happy New Year, and Happy 1000th post! Congrats on such a milestone!

  4. Happy New Year, Lydia! And thanks. It's been a wild ride.

  5. Happy New Year, hun! Congrats on reaching such a milestone with your blog!

    As you know, I follow all of your blogs ;)

    Oh, and I don't know about other places, but Canadians use Amazon.com for Kindle books, so you can include them too =)

  6. Happy New Year, B.E.! And congratulations on 1000 posts!

    I'm not entering the drawing, though. I don't have an ereader, and reading on the computer gives me a headache. Alas, I'm a dinosaur. ;-)

  7. Happy New Year! And super congrats on 1,000 posts!! Man, there's Kindle for PC and it's free? I feel like a big dummy for not knowing this. Hot damn.

  8. Thanks for clearing that up, Nat! And I love that you follow my blogs. People like you are the reason I enjoy doing this. =o)

    I totally understand, Deb. And thanks for following along all these years. =o)

    Yep, Alexia. If it weren't for that, I would've missed out on some really awesome new books that were Kindle only. Have fun with it! =o)

  9. I wish I had thought of this. I passed my thousandth a while ago.

    Congratulations. I've always enjoyed your posts, so well done!

  10. Thanks, Maria! It just happened last week that I noticed I was getting close to 1K, so I planned it out to land on 1/1. Serendipity, I guess.

  11. Congrats! That's quite a milestone!
