500 Followers Giveaway

Nope, I'm not giving away 500 followers, I'm celebrating 500 followers! You guys are awesome. It's all of you who have kept me going. Thank you for your support and encouragement.

Please pour yourself some bubbly (or other beverage of choice) and come celebrate with me.

I will be giving away a prize to three lucky people (first place gets first choice of the prize).


An Amazon Gift Card worth $20,
a first chapter critique,
and a first 250 words critique.

The competition is open to all my followers (old or new). The more you spread the word, the more chances you get to win. I will draw and announce the winners on Friday 25th (Aussie time).

To enter: be a follower and leave a comment on this post with your email. If you want extra chances to win please also include the links where you've spread the word.

cheers, everyone.

Addition: I forgot to mention my new header. Dezzy created my wonderful header as a gift to celebrate my 500 followers. Please visit Dezz at HollywoodSpy because he is awesome!
