3 Year Blogiversary / GIVEAWAY!

It's hard to believe that it's been 3 years since I started my blog on July 7th, 2010 with no followers and two poorly written novels. Three years later and I have finished SEVEN novels, and have over 250 followers. Maybe not as much progressive for some, but this is more than enough for me. :) I had a goal of reaching 200 followers and I made it last year.


 So, it's time for a celebration!!  To show my appreciation for all of you - I am doing a GIVEAWAY!

THE PRIZES

$10 Amazon Giftcard

3 Chapter Critique (From me)

The Kissing Booth by Beth Reekles

if i stay by Gayle Forman


Yes, I possibly did clean out my bookshelf and I don't have a lot of money, but I wanted to share with my amazing followers! Both are great books and hey, you can buy 3 e-books from Amazon with $10. :) 



Also, I am sharing a few fun facts about myself that you may not know! :)

1. I am afraid of cotton balls. Yes, cotton balls. They make the awful sound then.... ah!
2. I once dated identical twins and I never messed up their names. No, I didn't date them at the same time. :)
3. My favorite superhero is Captain America. His morals, his character, his butt. :)
4. I'm a huge Trekkie fan.
5. Until I was eighteen, I was deathly afraid of roller-coasters and now I love them.
6. My favorite animal is a hippo.
7. I really, really like to write when it is raining.
8. I have a thing for guys with curly hair... I just wanna touch it. :)
9. My nickname as a kid was Kunta because my sister couldn't say my name.
10. I love singing in the shower, but only when no one else is home because I'm too shy.

Do we have any random facts in common?

I will pick 4 winners when the giveaway is over!!  Good luck to everyone!  And thanks for supporting me through these three years of blogging!

  2. Yay, three years is a long time! I'm at a year and a half (ish), and I still can't believe I've lasted this long.
    I don't watch much TV, really. I have a lot of series' I love; Buffy, Firefly, Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, The Simpsons...I could go on forever, really!

  3. Totally love 'Despicable Me,' and I can't wait to see the new one! :) I'd have to say my favorite TV show is 'Burn Notice,' although I do love 'Big Bang Theory' and started 'Sherlock' (the British one), which I love love love.

    Congrats on your success and happy blogiversary!

  5. Three years, seven novels, 250+ followers. That's a lot of success in a short period of time. Congrats!

    I am deathly afraid of roller coasters, always have been. heck, I woke up one morning, turned on the TV and a roller coaster in a commercial gave me motion sickness. I can sit through almost any horror film but aerial shots of someone hanging from a skyscraper freak me out! And yet despite this crazy fear of heights I've been up to the top of the Sears Tower and Empire State Building. (I guess I can handle heights or motion but not both!)

    Also I do like to sing in the shower now and then, but only when I'm sure that no one can hear me. I tend to talk/sing to myself randomly.

    My niece is a HUGE Captain America fan. She brought him to her senior prom (kinda- it was a cardboard replica :-)

    1. Also I think my favorite television show would probably be a tie between Doctor Who and Supernatural!

  12. Congrats on your blogoversary—and on your books!

    I love writing when it rains, too. For some reason, I always feel more creative when the weather is gray.

    Have a happy Tuesday!
