New Theme, New Extension, Contest Announcement

Okay - I had someone question why the School theme for this week's contest, and thought maybe that was what hindered the lack of participation, so as of TODAY, I'm changing the contest to open it up. I'm also extended the deadline until Sunday 6 PM, instead of Friday.
I hope that will give you enough time to enter.

The new theme is YOUR CHOICE! Send in whatever short story you'd like to share, with a 2000 word limit.

Readers of my Pix-N-Pens newsletter were informed this week about the prizes in the Grand Prize Drawing in December, and now I'll spill the beans here.

The winner of the Grand Prize will be chosen in a random drawing on Monday, December 3rd.

Your name can be added to the "pot" three different ways:

Everyone already subscribed to the newsletter will receive one entry.

All winners of our weekly contests, from the very first contest back in March, until the last contest before the drawing - even the winner announced on December 3rd - will automatically receive 5 entries in the drawing.

You can also receive an entry for each person you refer who signs up for this newsletter. Just forward this newsletter to your friends, asking them to subscribe. Get them to send me an email - tracyruckman @ gmail.com - telling who referred them September 4-November 30th and you'll BOTH get an entry into the contest.

The winner of the Grand Prize Drawing will receive:

$300 online Gift Certificate to Wolf Camera. This website sells photography equipment, digital and video cameras, computers, office equipment, MP3s, TVs, gaming systems, scrapbooking materials, binoculars and much more!! A perfect opportunity for Christmas shopping!

$50 Gift Certificate to Amazon
$25 Gift Certificate to Christian Book
$25 Gift Certificate for DeBrand Chocolatesand
An assortment of new releases - fiction and non-fiction from a variety of authors.

This prize package is valued at over $500!!! So enter the contests and refer people to this newsletter for your chance to WIN!!
