Red, White & Blue make Purple Blogfest

but I've copied the info here too, cos I'm nice like that :)
Join in - you know you want to - and it's all for a good cause!

Okay! Here it is. I will be hosting a blogfest/contest on September 2, 2013. Why so much time? For you to write a fabulous story of course! All the stories entered will be complied into an anthology ebook that will be available on Kindle- all proceeds to go to Operation Purple, a great organization that sends children of our military to summer camp, free of charge.  And if that's not incentive enough, this is also a contest. One randomly chosen entry will win a $50.00 amazon gift card, as well as a signed copy of my book, The Newstead Project. 

I'm not going to be picking the winner based on the story- too hard for me to choose! Instead I'll be using a tally system. The more tallies you get, the more chances you have to win. 

Here's how it works: 

1. Sign up on the Linky below to enter - 1 tally with your name on it goes in a hat. Yes, a literal hat. 
2. Post a short story of 500 words or less on your site on September 2, 2013, with a military theme, good for 10 tallies
3. Post about this blogfest/contest on your blog sometime in the next week. - 1 tally
4. On September 2, visit those who have posted stories and leave a comment on their sites- 1 tally
5. On September 2, mention this blog- 1 tally

    1. I thought it was Julie - just need to concentrate and write a short story!x

  2. I love this idea! Will put on my thinking cap and try to figure out something that fits your theme.

    1. Hi Misha, it is a lovely idea, but I can't take credit. I have any idea what I'm going to write, just need a few uninterrupted hours, I wish LOL x

  3. Sounds like fun. I'll have to pass as I'm working hard on finishing my current MS.

    But I'll place the bade on my side bar and give a shout out this week for it.

    1. 1Thanks Stephen, that's fab I thought it sounded like a lovely idea too but she's not had many sign-up, so a shout out would help :) x


Love to hear from you. Please leave your thoughts below. Suzanne xx
