Because I Love Free Books....

A gambler is nothing but a man who makes his living out of hope. ~ William Bolitho

So, YAY for me... I won the September giveaway at Allie Boniface's website.

And just to spread the wealth, I thought I'd give you a listing of some writers who give away cool stuff, both freebies and contests.

Allie, of course. And she also has a fun blog.

Brenda Joyce is giving away a trip to Ireland.

Nora Roberts has two short stories on her site, plus she'll be giving away calendars and magnets around the first of the year.

The list to beat all lists of author contests is Writerspace. Geez, I could spend an hour here.

Several months ago, I won the filled bookbag from Dianna Love Snell - full of autographed books, bath bubbles and chocolate. Yum.

The best part is that I have discovered some great new authors this way. I read everything I win and, particularly with Dianna's bag, I found some new romantic suspense authors that I really enjoyed (Catherine Mann being one, and no she doesn't have a contest).

Oh... did I happen to mention that I have a giveaway on my own website? Yup... for October, I'm giving away a new copy of "The Courage To Write" by Ralph Keyes.

So, there you have it. And since it's the beginning of October, it's my time to get back over to Writerspace and enter some contests. My autographed bookshelf hasn't had any additions for a few months.

Congrats on the contest win!!! I've been on a contest entering binge, too. :) The Fresh Fiction site has links to several contests/drawings.

I've only entered one contest. Didn't win. *sigh*

Congrats to you.

Oh, I signed up for Nano this morning. I actually started a new account because I want it to be under the name I'm writing under.

I can't wait til November!
