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
