Blog in the Remaking and a Contest/Giveaway

Hey y’all, thanks for blogging in. Free Spirit is under reconstruction from now (Sunday, June 20) until this coming weekend, Saturday June 26th. Sorry for the lapse in posts, but I’m putting a new look together and will be back in the bloggy saddle with new bells on and ringing loudly next weekend. I will be stopping in to visit with and comment on all of y’all’s blogs that I normally read during the week, so see you and talk with you soon.

Oh, and hey – while I’m out of sight here on Free Spirit, please stop in as often as you want and score some points that will increase your eligibility to win a prize. I am going to select one reader/commenter at the end of the week to receive a free copy of my new novel, Beware the Devil’s Hug, as soon as it is released. Yuppers. Now mind you, it will be a few months before that happens, but if you want to be first in line to read it with a free book in your hands (or on your Kindle or ipad, your choice), here’s what you do.

Every comment left earns a point. Comment as many times as you want during the week, even if it’s just “hi!” or “Score me one more!”, anything, lol. Every Tweet of this post earns one point, so if your comment says that you tweeted it, that scores you two points. We’re on the honor system here, I can’t check to see if you actually did the tweet, but I am a trusting soul, so…

Also, a comment left on Facebook with a link to this post will earn a point. Make sure and note it in your comment here, as I don’t get to all your FB pages all the time, but yeah – a couple peeps have said they did that, so that does and will count, too.

At the end of the week I will add up the totals and to the highest point-earner goes the prize. Sound like fun? Well! You could at least ACT like it does!

Tee hee, have a wonderful week, y’all. Chow.

Love you, all, take care, and have a blessed day and week … this from the heart of The Old Silly.

    A lot of folks been changing templates and blogging schedules. The theme of my post yesterday concerned upcoming changes on my blog. I haven’t even thought about the look yet, only the content. But a change is coming to my blog as well. Look forward to seeing what you’re going to do.
