GIVEAWAYS!

I recently have been winning a few items on sites like Goodreads and Night Owl Reviews. I'd like to pass my winnings on to others.

I recently won an audiobook by P.C. and Kristin Cast called Destined. It is the 9th book in the House of Night Series. Not sure if any of you read these...but I'd like to give it away on my book blog. So please - if you are interested, head on over there and subscribe to my blog by clicking HERE. I'll be giving it away soon!

Here is a little bit about the book -

House of Night is a series of vampire-themed fantasy novels by American author P. C. Cast and her daughter Kristin Cast. It follows the adventures of Zoey Redbird, a sixteen-year-old girl who has just become a "fledgling vampyre" and is required to attend the House of Night boarding school in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The series has been on the New York Times Best Seller list for 63 weeks and there are over seven million copies in print in North America alone. The sixth novel, Tempted, which went on sale on October 27, 2009 with a first printing of a million copies, entered the USA Today bestseller list that week at #1. In January, 2010, Gezeichnet, a German translation of Marked, reached the #1 spot on the Der Spiegel bestseller list. The series has so far sold more than ten million books in 39 countries.
Burned was released on April 27, 2010, and like Tempted, it entered the USA Today bestseller list that week at #1. Awakened, released in January, 2011, also entered the list at #1. The series, which is published by St Martin's Press is planned to include twelve books. In 2008, plans for a film adaptation were also announced.

The ninth book in the series, Destined, was released on October 25, 2011. The second book in the novellas (which give backgrounds on supporting characters), Lenobia's Vow, is currently set to be released January 31, 2012. Book ten is currently called Hidden, and the Casts have announced that two more novellas, Neferet’s Curse, and one more about Kalona, are to be released to coincide with the eleventh and twelfth books.

Not to mention - it'll help that SNAIL MAIL!

I still love Blogspot!

So, lately I've been joining TONS of social networking sites....and I have to say that each new one becomes a huge addiction for me. It's crazy how many are out there right now. It's a huge deal to keep up with them all. I tried tumblr for a while too. I like it, I just can't quite figure out how to add all my sites as links on it. So, I have made my way BACK to blogspot and added everything on one site. Easy access to it all!

I log into one spot - all my passwords are saved for automatic log-in and I'm good to go!

If you follow me on another blog - please follow me here too....you'll have multiple ways to stalk me then!!

MY MAIN BLOG

I will still post things here on my Snail Mail blog - but it will strictly be about snail mail. Hope to see you on my main blog too!

Hello Again!

Ok so yes I know. It's been awhile since I have posted. Just been really busy!

Let's see, first things first - I made my quota of 31 mailings by the time I turn 31!! So thank you to EVERYONE that sent me something! I really appreciate it.

With that said, I have a huge stack of mail to go through and respond to!


Oh, and for my birthday - my husband bought me a Kindle! So, I have been absorbed into it. I love it so much. At first, I wasn't sure how I would like it. I mean - I LOVE the feel of a book in my hand. I LOVE the smell of books...but I LOVE this Kindle too.

Well, I really just wanted to check in - I'm going to get started on returning those letters.

Talk to you guys soon!

Friday/Saturday Give Away

Ok here we go guys and gals!

I was at Target and found a "cute little something" that I thought would be great as a giveaway. I was going to post them as a give-a-way when I got off work yesterday...but my sister-in-law was taken by ambulance to Houston, TX and I was unable to get to it. She is still feeling bad and after all the test she had to go through, they still can't determine what's causing her illness. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers please.

For the give-a-way, I know what all of us could use is MORE stationary. :o) SO HERE IT IS!! For the first three people that post a comment on THIS post (any comment, as long as it isn't mean) BUT be sure to include your mailing address. I will send you one of the NOTE CARD FOLIO's I picked up! So, instead of just ONE winner - there will be THREE!

They are little folders - and on one side are the blank cards and the other are the matching envelopes. There are 8 cards and envelopes. See the two pics below and get your comments posted!! I will mail them out after I have all three winners info!
