Blog Hop Contest

-- Quote of the Day --

“…When I started out with interviews in 98 I would write out a dozen questions or more, specific meticulous questions – then it evolved into more of a conversation… These days I still write out the questions, but often we don’t even use them because I allow for spontaneity, as sense of dialogue. I want my readers to know what the person is really like, the person behind the image. I still do the research – and then I give access to the core of the person. …When we published the magazine people would come to us asking for an interview, but I am also a voracious reader and if I like the book I might reach out and contact the author or publisher for an interview. …I see writing as a way of getting thoughts out of our minds and onto paper. When I write it is usually done on a computer, because it flows more easily and I don’t have to edit. …But when you write the words out we can see what we are feeling, we realize that we thought that way, and some of our entrenched patterns over time. It is a way of tracking where we have been.”

~ Edie Weinstein

Blog Hop

We are proud to offer yet another Blog Hop contest for our blog readers...

For this blog contest we'll be offering

...a set of 6 bookmarks as a prize this week since a lot of reading tends to be done over the summer months and most readers can find a use for bookmarks :) These newly designed bookmarks are printed on 100% recycled content paper stock and with 100% veggie inks. They were printed by a company that is only 12 hours away from our city (by car) and were delivered to us by Greyhound. The bookmarks feature nature photography taken in BC (Canada) by Dave Brummet, who also did the graphic work for these bookmarks.

We will start by offering a package of 6 bookmarks for this contest, however we may offer this to 2 winners if we get a lot of interest. Similar contests we held for bookmarks in the past resulted in over 70 entries, and so depending on the results we might offer 2 prizes this week.

Draw begins on MAY 24th (midnight) and ends on May 31st (midnight).

To enter our draw simply leave a comment on this post, along with your email address so that we can contact the winner of this e-book prize. Alternatively email us your entry: ldbrummet(at)yahoo(dot)com
