Giveaway on my Other Blog

Just thought I'd let my readers know that I have a giveaway on my writer's blog.
A lot of you probably don't know that I'm a "wanna a be" writer. I mainly write stories for children, but I also write short stories.

I just received my contributor's copy of this book in the mail. Needless to say, I'm very excited.

My name is in print. . . finally! I wrote my short story, which is on page 36, about two years ago and it has taken this long for it to be published. You have to have patience to make it as a writer.
Patience and persistence. An amateur can't quit or they will never become a professional.

I put the announcement on my side bar, but I don't think anyone noticed it.

Go to my writing site and comment on my giveaway post to be in the drawing for a copy of this book. I've read a lot of the stories in the book and they are very good. They will give you ideas of Christmas traditions your family might want to start.

You have to comment on my writing site to be in the running, though.

So, if you want a chance to win, get on over to my writing site!


  1. How cool! I have a friend who is a published author, so I know what you mean by needing patience to write! I'd love to win a copy of the book.

  2. You're right, I DID miss it!
    I'm clicking over right now.

  3. Didn't get a chance to comment the other day. Wireless problems abound since my landlord has guests who can't seem to keep from freezing and restarting it constantly. Argghh! Congratulations Hon! xxoo

  4. Congratulations Janet!!!!! I couldn't be happier for you!!!!! I'm sure you are thrilled as you should be!!!! Way to go!!!!


  5. Many congratulations!
    Years ago I wanted to be a writer. I wish I'd stuck to it. I did have a couple of poems published in a college literary book but I never pursued that avenue again.

    BTW - the highchair my granddaughter was sitting in was used by both of my own kids. My daughter had babies first so she inherited the chair for Lily. It was a Jenny Lind.

  6. Janet, congratulations on being published! You are so right that patience is necessary. I had a short story published a couple of years ago and thought it would be forever before it was real! blessings, marlene

  7. Congratulations, Janet! It's a good story and deserved publishing. The book looks awesome.
