100 Followers. One blog. Two contests.

Oh man...

The time has come. Loosen your tie (if you wear one), hike up your skirt (if you wear one),  catapult your apron (if you use one; I prefer to wipe my hands on my jeans)and prepare to mother truckin' partaaayyy! I've reached 100+ beautiful followers, and am dying (pause for drama....) to give away some sweet crap (which is actually amazing swag) to say THANK YOU!

I have not one, but TWO CONTESTS you can enter. That's TWO ways to win treasures (not pleasures, as Gram would hear), so I can see how creative my Candylanders are. You delicious bunch of sweetness, you.

Contest number ONE: Fill out the form at the bottom of the page and get up to TEN entries. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Winners will be chosen by the most honest human I know (three-year-old) with a room full of witnesses (the hubs and cats) and photographic proof of winners drawn with zee camera (this is scientific, people).

PRIZES for random drawing: (not open to my overseas peeps *insert boos*)

-"We Hear the Dead" by Dianne Salerni (Signed) (Thanks Dianne!)
-"Writing Great Books for Young Adults" by Regina Brooks
-"Radiant Shadows" (paperback) by Melissa Marr (thank you Valerie Kemp!)
-"If I Stay" (paperback) by Gayle Foreman
-"Beautiful" (hardback) by Amy Reed
-"Before I Fall" (hardback) by Lauren Oliver
-"Slash" (hardback) by Slash (donated by the hubs!)
-"Devilish" (paperback) by Maureen Johnson
-2 Bookmarks Autographed by Maria V. Snyder and Julie Kagawa
-Handmade Soy candle (made by meeeee!) in the scent of Smore's Delight

Contest Number TWO: Print off my profile picture, (or photoshop me) in the most unique setting/doing something super cool/hanging with crazy awesome peeps! At this point, there will be FIVE winners for this, so get creative. Need an example? I could have a cup of coffee with you...
Or you could introduce me to some celebs (who seem to always be naked. Sorry)...
 And maybe they could show me around (let me soak in the tub)...
 Then I could sing them to sleep with my mad skillz...
 Or I could pretend not to notice when they continued talking about "the totally hot guy at the party" while they urinate...
 Or maybe I'd just be the entertainment, after the celeb's long day of being naked...

PRIZES for "Where in the world is Candyland" contest: (open to everyone!)

Choice of prize:
Query Critique by Elana Johnson
Query Critique by LiLa Roecker
First Chapter Critique by Harmony May
$25 Amazon Gift Card
Honorable Mention gets $10 Amazon Gift Card:)
