New Year Blog Competition

To wish all my readers a happy 2011 and to celebrate the blog reaching 50 followers I am running a little competition. There will be three winners with three different prizes; a book on writing and one of two lovely necklaces.

Prize 1: How to Write book
Prize 2: Purple Necklace
Prize 3: Gold and Black Necklace

So here is what you need to do to enter:

1) Comment at the bottom of this post stating which prize you would like to win. You can enter as many (or as few) of the prize draws as you like. Just indicate which of the prize draws you wish to be entered into by writing 1, 2 or 3 in your comment (please see above photos for prizes) and I will enter you into all the draws you select. So you can only enter each draw once but you are able to enter all three.

2) Follow the blog to qualify for entry. If you not already a follower of the blog make sure you sign up on the right hand side!

3) UK entries only due to cost of postage (sorry bout that!)

4) The winner will be announced on the blog so keep a check for the announcement. The winners will have to contact me within a week to claim their prize otherwise the names will be re-drawn. If you have a twitter name please leave it in your comment as a way to contact you.

5) The closing date is Sunday 16th January 2011 (5pm GMT.) The winners will be selected at random and they will be announced on the blog.

Good Luck to everyone who enters and thank you for joining me here! Happy 2011 everyone!
