It's Another Carnival - Win GC & Books!

It's time for another BLOGGY CARNIVAL and this time we're giving away TWO prizes here at Pix-N-Pens, AND one prize each at my other blogs - Vacation Planning and Peace and Quiet.



Contest rules are simple - just look through the posts made here at Pix-N-Pens any time during September or October and leave at least one comment on at least one of those posts - other than this one. The comments must apply to the post, and consist of more than just "great post." (ENTRIES NOT ABIDING BY THIS SINGLE RULE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.) You may enter up to 5 (five) times, but each entry must be on a different post and must apply to that particular post. This is a great way to explore our new look to see all that Pix-N-Pens has to offer. If you're interested in a particular subject, just click one of the tabs at the top, and those are the posts you'll see. You'll find Contests, Opinions (listed under Viewpoints), Freelance Writing articles, Photography tips and lessons, Editing Tips, Book Reviews, Featured Authors, and more. And we're having another fun contest this week too - a recipe contest - so check it out for another opportunity!

When you make a comment, please make sure to leave an e-mail address or post using your google account so I have a way to contact you if you win. If I don't have a way to contact you directly, I will choose another winner. Enter by midnight October 31st for your chance to win!

I'll draw two names this time - one winner will receive a box of 15 books (priced $10.99-$15.99 each) and the other will receive a $25 Amazon gift card. The winner will be announced the following week.

For more contests going on this week - check over a Bloggy Carnival for a HUGE list! And don't forget to check my other blogs, too! (Listed above)

We have another contest going on here this week - Virginia Smith's RECIPE contest - so check out that post for chance to win a copy of her latest book - a great mystery/suspense!

P.S. Two of my dearest friends are also participating in the Bloggy Carnival, so check out their blogs, too!
