I am so excited and so happy! For a while, I didn't think this day would EVER come. But, Marianne and I have been working diligently and now we are ready for the big announcement.
As you all know, we have the most wonderful review blog. If you haven't visited over there, why not? And... go... but then come right back. You don't want to miss the big news.
In addition to our review blog, we are announcing the creation of The Long and the Short of It, the website. Not only will we have the reviews you all love, we will have a whole lot more. The website goes live on Monday, August 27 with a super Grand Opening Party. And... we want to give YOU a chance to get in on the fun early, so we are having a pre-Grand Opening contest.
Contest? Did you hear someone say 'contest'? You know me... you know how I LOVE to give things away. Well, this is the monster giveaway and I'm having so much fun!
There are a few of ways you can enter this wondrous contest:
1. Leave a comment on this post. (please make sure you leave a link where we can contact you if you win!)
2. You can share the good news about the contest on your own blog. Simply link to us in your blog entry then fill out the Mr. Linky here. Please use the url to the actual blog entry, please.
3. You can sign up for our newsletter here.
And, that's it.
What? I haven't told you the prize yet? How can I forget the most important thing??? Blame it on the blonde roots :-)
We're a book site, right? What else would we be giving away but... books? We will be sending to one lucky reader in the USA or Canada this nifty tote bag plumb stuffed with books (new, gently used, or ARCs), along with some wonderful sweet smellin' bath goodies so you can lay back in the tub and relax while you read all your new books. Our international readers are encouraged to enter the contest as well, however due to postage cost restraints, the winner will be sent a $30 Amazon gift certificate.
So... you know the prize, you know the rules... go and tell everyone. And... remind them to check out The Long and the Short of It on Monday, August 27, for our Grand Opening Bash... and to find out the winner of the contest.
The pre-Grand Opening Contest ends at noon, Eastern Time, Sunday, August 26, 2007.
