Contest Update & Changes

Well, after numerous retakes and tries yesterday that didn't work, I'm reformatting the contest announced yesterday. I apologize for the inconvenience and instability. I had hoped to help spread word about some special books and projects, but technology did not want to cooperate.

So, we'll make it easy. To enter to win any of the prizes below, just leave a comment anywhere you see this post - on my blog, on Facebook, on Twitter, on Pinterest, on Instagram and you'll be entered to win each time.

If you want to help spread the word about any of the projects listed below the prizes, feel free to share this post or any of the links below, but you are not required to do so.

And, to make it quicker, we'll end the contest on Sunday, December 8, so everyone will be sure to get their prizes in time for gift-giving.

We'll be giving away a total of four prizes and Kindle versions of our soon-to-be-released travelogue, Go West, His Momma Said to each winner, plus 10 additional winners for the book only.

You could win:

Prize #1: 
One 11" x 14" autographed art print poster by Tracy Ruckman

Prize #2: 
One 1-pound bag of whole coffee beans by JavaPresse.

Prize #3:
Children's Picture Book bundle

Prize #4:
Shape Your Soul devotional by Peggy Cunningham and My Prayer Journal 

Prize #5:
Kindle versions of Go West, His Momma Said by Tracy Ruckman will be given to all four winners of the prizes above, plus 11 additional winners.

The projects I want to promote, and the reasons why:

Kids Christmas Project blog post - The Kids Christmas Project is near and dear to my heart. Rumi Rancho is off to press today in Bolivia with books printed in Spanish to GIFT to children in the Andes Mountains - books that share love, laughter, stories, memories of childhood, and most of all JESUS. The author, Peggy Cunningham, also wrote the Hooray for Holidays series of books, and you can learn about those here: Hooray for Holidays video

KC's Christmas Discovery blog post - KC's Christmas Discovery also shares Jesus in a fun Christmas story. The author is on a mission herself to share Jesus far and wide, and the more people who know about her book, the more she is able to do that. Here's the "behind the scenes" look at the creation of this sweet book. KC's Christmas Discovery video

Read to Your Family video - Clients of TMP Books (publishing or marketing) offer some great choices for your family reading time. 

My own projects I'm wanting to share far and wide include my new art store and prayer journals - art and journals make great Christmas gifts.
