And the Winners Are…

Today’s the big day, the one that you’ve breathlessly awaited for a solid week now. It’s the day that I drew two names from my magic fishbowl for the “Peculiar Rhymes and Intimate Observations” giveaway. I was too excited to sleep last night, so I did the drawing in my PJ’s and bunny slippers as I guzzled coffee. I mean, it’s like a $10.99 value. How could I sleep, knowing that I was about to bestow such gifts?

Of course, there had to be a hitch. This morning, I tried to view those who had  “Liked” my Facebook page, but for some reason, was unable to see the names, just the locations, so I threw those  into the fishbowl, along with the monikers of the followers of my blog. Then I drew.

The recipient of the Smashwords e-book is none other than the fabulous Pigeon Heart!!! C’mon DOWN!

And, person who lives in Honesdale, PA, who liked my FB page…you’re the big winner of the Audible audio book! Please contact me via Facebook or this blog, so that l can get it to you.

Well, I hope that wasn’t too anti-climatic. It all worked out better in my head.

I’ve been furiously writing and editing these days. I’m gearing up to put out yet another book, and soon after that, a Kindle single. Some of you will be pleased to know that neither of these are poetry. Thanks again to everyone for being so incredibly sweetful in helping me promote my work, and congratulations again to Pigeon Heart and Honesdale!


You May Need to Pinch Yourself

In my ongoing quest to learn SSP (Shameless Self Promotion), I’m having a giveaway! On Wednesday, November the 14, 2012 in the Year of Our Lord, two winners will be drawn. One will receive an ebook version of “Peculiar Rhymes and Intimate Observations,” my collection of poetry for people who hate poetry. The second winner chosen will receive an Audible audiobook version.

Holy Abercrombie. I feel like Santa, without the reindeer and the whiskers.

All of you wonderful, sweet, intelligent and very good-looking followers of this blog are automatically entered to win. If you’re not already following, you might want to hit that little button at the top of your screen.

BUT WAIT! There’s more! If you go to my new Facebook page and press the “like” button, you’re entered to win AGAIN! That’s like…two entries!

I know, I know, you’re thinking, “Wow…Moonbeam…it just doesn’t get any better than this.” That’s what I was thinking too. I’ll wait here for a moment so you can pinch yourself, just so you can be certain you’re not dreaming.

I should probably be acting all cool and casual about all of this, but again, I want to thank everyone who’s buying, trying, reviewing and tweeting about my foray into self publishing. Thanks for every mention. You have no idea how much I appreciate you. I love you. Seriously. Am I gushing again?

Okay, I’m outta here. I’ve got writing to do. Plus, I have to search the attic for an Official Fishbowl, in which to put the Official Entries for the Official Drawing. Hope you all have a happy, fun-filled weekend. I’ll meet you back here on Wednesday!
