I can’t believe it. The Long and the Short of It is almost ONE YEAR OLD! Who would have thought that last year, when Marianne said... “I think I want to start a reviews blog... do you want to help out a little?” that we would be where we are today???

To celebrate our birthday, we are having a blowout party and you are all invited. We have a month of fun planned... and some of our very favorite writers are involved to bring YOU the presents.

Every day, August 1-26, you can visit one of our friends to find out how to win her special prize. There will be “something” you need to find or a question you need to answer. Just email us (lasrcontests@gmail.com) the answer and you will be entered into that day’s drawing. Not only that... but you’ll also be entered into the drawing for the $50 Amazon Gift Certificate we’ll be giving away on our actual anniversary date of August 27, 2008.

You can also get an entry for the grand prize just by telling other people about it on your website and/or blog... just enter the link on Mr. Linky on the anniversary page. If you have a daily entry, your Mr. Linky will also count as an extra entry for that contest. AND, you don't have to wait for the anniversary party to do that. You can start RIGHT NOW!

You can see all the authors that are participating on our anniversary page. The question and link to their site will be on our anniversary page on their designated day. Be sure and check every day, because once the link is gone.. it’s gone and you’ve lost your chance at that particular prize (and for your entry that day for the Grand Prize).

So... tell your friends. Tell your relatives. Tell your blog buddies. Tell your loops. Tell the strangers in the street. The Long and the Short of It is a YEAR OLD!!! And giving away twenty-six prizes from twenty-six great authors AND a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate. How cool is that? ;-)
