A Question… (New Contest!)
Monday, November 7th, 2011

NaNo Day 7:
LH—2169 words

The winner of the Autographed Book Contest is named at the bottom of this post!

I have three things to talk about today. Bear with me—you might like something I have to say. :grin:

* * * * *

The “I’ll Change My Name to Wendy or Tammy” Contest
First, I am starting a new contest today, and it will end next Tuesday, November 15th! There will be more than one winner—but only if you are willing to be Wendy or Tammy for a day. Scratching your head? I have this stack of autographed books that I made out to the wrong person. It has grown to four. There’s a copy of Girls Who Bite, Veiled Alliance, Un, Deux, Trois, Ménage!, and Darkness Captured. So I will give away four books to four people—if those four are willing to be Tammy or Wendy (the names I put in those books by accident!) for a day! Okay, so I’ll scratch through those ladies’ names and add yours, before I send, but it’s more fun the way I put it. Or maybe just more confusing. Anyway, I will be rid of the stack, and four lucky people will have a signed book!

What do you have to do to win one of these four books?
Post a comment—here or on my Facebook page.

And remember, the Promo Ho Contest is ongoing! Check the Contest page for details!

    Wendy or Tammy, it would be rough, but I would fight thru it, and smile the whole time I’m reading your book. It would actually be nice. When my kids say mom, can you make me a sandwich, I’ll tell them your mom went out, my name is Wendy…lol! That would have them scratching their heads for a few minutes.

    I could go through a day being called Wendy. Since Tammy is the name of my sister-in-law, that would be more harder for me to deal with being called. I would love to see the wild elephants, giraffes, zebras and lions on the African safari.

    Either name is fine by me, so different from mine.
    I would love to see a giraffe, they look elegant with those long necks.

    I’d be happy to be Tammy or Wendy for a day. As for a trip to Africa, I’d want to take a boat ride down the Zambezi river.

    I wouldn’t mind being someone else for a day….then I dont have to do what is need to do for myself…A way of getting out of cleaning up the house.
    Africa: I would want to do some hunting. Yep I am a active hunter. If not that just the trip alone would be nice. Since I know I will most likely never make it over there.
    Thanks for the contest.

    It wouldn’t be the first time that someone called me by the wrong name, at least this time, I’d get something for it.

    I know it’s not on the normal safari tour, but I’d just have to see False Bay. Air Jaws, here I come!

    As my eldest son’s SO is called Tammy you wouldn’t even have to scratch out the name :)

    I’ll just read it first – then pass it on :)

    Oh and thanks for picking me to win and expect my email soon :D

    ROFL! I think I’d be OK being Tammy or Wendy for that ;) As for African safari, it wouldn’t be complete without a view of the savannah at night, although I could definitely do without the mosquitoes!
