Coming Soon to a Blog Near You

Keep your eyes peeled folks, in the next few days I'm going to start the first ever, week long, Shannon's Friend Seeking Contest!

This may stem from the fact that as I child I had very few friends (a distinct possibility but not one I'm willing to give much thought to at the moment) or the fact that September 7th is the day that my agent, Carolyn Swayze, will be submitting my ms to PUBLISHERS! Very exciting and very contest worthy.

The contest will be designed to bring new followers to my blog and Twitter account. I want to be able to reach as many people as possible through my blog, Twitter and website. I expect that the new followers, and you who have been with me since the beginning, will all stick around long enough to buy my first book. In fact, part of being a follower of my blog or Twitter account requires the you must line up outside your local bookstore, at a minimum of the day before my book will be released. Really, it's in the fine print. ;p

And for you sceptics, THERE WILL BE PRIZES! I will have multiple prizes, because when can there be just one winner? Not on my shift! It doesn't matter where you live, Canada, USA or over seas, I will send the prizes to you where ever the winners are.

Shannon's Friend Seeking Contest will start as soon as I reach 500 followers on Twitter and as of this post I'm 9 people away. The details, prizes and start time to be announced when that magic number is reached.

Wow, this idea is brilliant. Coffee and books, my two favorite things. Okay, I'm off to rack up some poingts and spread the word (as soon as I finish work); )

Oh, and it's nice to 'meet' you.

I can't take credit for the idea, I stole it from someone else! But I agree, its a great way to meet more people and get them to see your blog. BTW, nice to meet you too writermomof5 ! :)
