Contest Adjustment

By | Mer Archives Details, Website stuff | No Comments

Ok so executive decision. As very few people left comments on the actual blog post and more posted on the facebook links, I’ll include any one who directly comments on a link to chapter one in the contest. It’s still open internationally for anyone to win five bookmarks. Here’s hoping you win, there’s still a few hours to comment! 😀 Cheers. Thanks for all the support everyone!

Read, read, read and read some more. And with these bookmarks keep your place in those books you love. Anyone who comments on my Chapter One when I post it up on Feb 29th has a chance to win these! It’s open internationally so post from anywhere. Here they are:

The quotes on the bookmarks are:
Far left – Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take but by the moments that take your breath away
2nd from left – Dare to Go Far
3rd from left – Faith Hope Love The greatest of these is love

Oh and btw? It’s T-minus 6 days until we can Leap Into Chapter One!

So I’ve just had it confirmed that I will be doing a 10 min segment on Radio NL’s Jim Harrison Show on 610 AM here in Kamloops BC and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ll be on air on Tues Feb 28 from 9:08am to 9:18am. I’ll be talking all about Leap Into Chapter One On Leap Day and possibly even doing a Q&A about writing at the same time.

You can access the website to Radio NL here. Make sure that even if you’re not in Kamloops go there on Feb 28 and click ‘Listen Live’ (top right corner) to hear the segment! Thanks for all the support from everyone.

Oh and btw? It’s T-minus 7 days until we can Leap Into Chapter One!

I’ll be posting every day until the big day – pics, sneak peaks, writing articles, writers’ groups + more – so keep reading!

Leap Into Chapter One On Leap Day – Some Details & A Contest

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

So as the day gets closer and closer there’s going to be more and more going on for Leap Into Chapter One. Keep an eye on the posts here as there’s going to be a number of surprises even before we finally get to Chapter One.

A couple details:

On Feb 29th I will be doing a live author reading of Chapter One at the Teen Advisory Board Meeting at the North Shore Library in Kamloops, BC. The meeting starts at 6:00pm. I’ll be looking for feedback and I’ll also be doing a Q&A session about writing and publishing.

I will also be doing a podcast of Chapter One so that those who are unable to read can listen to it and for those who wish to hear the chapter read in the author’s own voice. Keep an eye out for the link to that!

And now for the Contest!

On March the 1st I will randomly select one of the comments on Chapter One and that person will win five gorgeous bookmarks! The better to read with of course. In the very near future I will post a picture of the bookmarks but in the mean time, make sure to mark your calendars for Feb 29th and leave a comment after you’ve read Chapter One. Leave a critique, a suggestion, a question, whichever. Anything and everything is welcomed. (This is a family friendly site though, keep it G-rated with no profanity please). Oh and the even better news? This contest is open internationally! So no matter where you are be sure to post. 😀

And spread the word! I’ve included a pic of the promotional poster I will be peppering all over Kamloops and Calgary. Take a gander and then share it! Share it on facebook, email it, maybe even print some off and give them to your friends! Most especially share it with the teens in your life: nieces, nephews, sisters, daughters, sons, brothers, friends. Please help me get the word out about this great event and a book that I truly adore.


p.s. If you’d like to print this poster off, email me on the contact page and I can send you a higher quality file of a larger size. Thanks!
