Last chance to win When Your Lion Needs a Bath by Susanna Leonard Hill!; & blog tour schedule

Hi, All!

I am sneaking an extra blog post into my busy all-about-Susanna-Leonard-Hill-&-her-books-and-illustrators-in-July schedule. This is to remind you that today – at 9 PM EST – your chance to win – here on my blog – a copy of When Your Lion Needs a Bath ends! Oh no!

If you haven’t been keeping up, it’s not too late. You can go HERE to read the news, HERE for my review of When Your Lion Needs a Bath, HERE for my interview with author Susanna Leonard Hill and your opportunity to enter the draw.

Look at another of the adorable illustrations Daniel Wiseman (illustrator) enjoyed creating in Lion:

Simply leave a comment on the July 6 interview post telling us how you would get your lion into the bath – and your name will go into the random name picker thingie I use to determine who is the winner. 🙂  Easy peasy!

In case you didn’t check out her blog to see it there, below you will find Susanna’s blog tour schedule where you can enter draws on other blogs, too. The only difference in the schedule (which would have been a hassle for Susanna to change and bothersome for everyone else participating) is the dates of the giveaways on my blog. Lion is on July 15, Elephant will be on July 22. Although I will still announce the winners of both books on July 25 … along with an Elephant extra from Susanna … you will find out first on July 16 (Lion) and July 23 (Elephant). Yay!  (confused yet?)  I’m trying to spread the Susanna joy throughout the whole month for you, so there’s still lots coming! 🙂

And so ends my active participation in the promotional blog tour for Lion. Thanks to Susanna (author), Little Simon (publisher), and Daniel Wiseman (illustrator), and – of course – to everyone who came to visit. We appreciate your interest and comments. It’s been fun. 🙂

Enough said. Next post is to announce the winner of When Your Lion Needs a Bath!

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

My 11th giveaway of 2016; your chance to win a novelty item for readers!

November is half done, the 16th is my birthday, and I realized I still haven’t offered anything to you for my November giveaway.  So, here it is, a unique and different item for readers of “real” books.

Have you ever seen a book butterfly? Well, this one is a wind-up book butterfly!

How cool is that! 

wind-up-book-butterfly-3

You twist the front wings 30-40 times and set it inside your book. When you open your book … out flutters the butterfly! I got Dad to have the fun of testing one out tonight (it’s my week with him) and it really works! So fun. He enjoyed the surprise of it more than once.

This would make a wonderful gift for someone – if you decide not to keep it for yourself. Whatever you decide, you have to enter to win! If you won one of my giveaways don’t let that stop you from entering again.

I am offering this giveaway to my readers anywhere in the world.

To enter the draw, please leave a comment on this post telling me if you have a special bookmark you prefer to use. I will use Random.org name picker to find out which of you is the winner. Watch here the morning after the draw for the announcement, and don’t forget to check your email. This could be yours!

Draw date for this giveaway is at 10 PM AST, that’s 9 PM Eastern, on Tuesday, November 29. This gives you less than two weeks to enter and to pass the word on to others, too. I will post the winner’s name on November 30.

Remember, you have until November 29 to get your name into the draw, but don’t put it off! Enter now!

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! :)

My 9th Giveaway of 2016; Your chance to win a book!

I gave away the surprise again, didn’t I?  🙂  Well, I have a good reason. I know many people love free books, and this way you can see right off the top that a book is being offered for September.

This book is different. It’s one that, although outdated in some ways, is a very helpful guideline and filled with information to help you build a financially secure future for yourself. The time to start is NOW, no matter if you aren’t even out of school yet. Don’t wait until you’re nearing retirement to start planning for it. That would be a huge mistake. 

Here’s my giveaway for September:

giveaway #8.1giveaway #8.3

 

 

 

 

 

giveaway #8.5

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you want the chance to win this book, please leave a comment telling me when you started your planning. (No one else is going to take care of us.)

I am offering this giveaway to my readers in the United States, but also in Canada if you don’t mind that this information is geared mainly to US financial services. There are ideas and guidelines in there for everyone, the specifics being more for the US. If you live outside those countries and you know someone in either of those countries who will keep it for you should you win, please feel free to enter. Just give me the Canada or US address if you do win.

I will use Random.org name picker to find out which of you is the winner. Watch here the morning after the draw for the announcement, and don’t forget to check your email. This could be yours!

Draw date for this giveaway is at 10 PM AST, that’s 9 PM Eastern, on Wednesday, September 14. This gives you over two weeks to pass the word on to others, too. I will post the winner’s name on September 15.

Remember, you have until September 14 to get your name into the draw, but don’t put it off!

My 8th giveaway of 2016; your chance to win … a BOOK!

Yes, okay, this time I gave away the surprise in my subject line. I just couldn’t help myself.  🙂

My August giveaway is this book:

A Room of One's Own

A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hadn’t yet read any of Virginia Woolf’s work, so when I found this book in a secondhand shop I had to buy it. As you have figured out, this is not a new copy but it’s in very good condition, nothing wrong with it.
If you want the chance to win this classic book, please leave a comment telling me if you have read any of the author’s work before.
Even if you already won something in an earlier draw, please feel free to enter again. I am offering this giveaway to my readers anywhere in the world!
I will use an automated name picker to find out which of you is the winner; therefore, repeat winners are by chance and fairly selected. Watch here the morning after the draw for the announcement, and don’t forget to check your email. This could be yours!
Draw date for this giveaway is at 10 PM AST, that’s 9 PM Eastern, on Wednesday, AUGUST 17. This gives you time to pass the word on to others, too. I will post the winner’s name on AUGUST 18.
Remember, you have until August 17 to get your name into the draw, but don’t put it off!

My 7th Giveaway of 2016; your chance to win!

I am much later than I had hoped to offer another giveaway. The good news is that next month’s will be something special and you’ll have more time to enter the draw. This month it is something handy and the draw is not far off.

In my shopping around and looking for items to give away, I have to bear in mind the cost of mailing these things to you. Therefore, what I offer is not big items; regardless, I do hope they are things you can use. This month it is more than one item in my giveaway, but all go together to one winner.

Take a look:

giveaway #7It’s a black zip bag, plastic, a sort of very large pencil case that is big enough to easily hold 8.5″x 12″ paper. It’ll be handy to store your writing things in or carry them around. It would also hold a manuscript.

With it I’m including a note pad for jotting down your story ideas (for example), and a package of brightly coloured sticky tag notes. Perhaps you can use them as bookmarks, or to mark certain passages of your notes so you can find them when you want to make changes or double-check your work.

Here are more images of the same things.

giveaway #7.4giveaway #7.5giveaway #7.6

 

 

 

The quote on the bag is by Gandhi, “You must be the change you want to see in the world.” The bag has a mesh back so you can identify what you put in there.

giveaway #7.2giveaway #7.3giveaway #7.7

 

 

 

Now for the details.

If you want the chance to win this zip bag and its contents, please leave a comment telling me how you usually keep track of your reading or writing supplies OR what use would you have for this bag? Even if you already won something in an earlier draw, please feel free to enter again. 

I am offering this giveaway to my readers in Canada and the United States. If you live outside those countries and you know someone in either of those countries who will keep it for you should you win, please feel free to enter. Just give me the Canada or US address if you do win.

I will use Random.org name picker to find out which of you is the winner; therefore, repeat winners are by chance and fairly selected. Watch here the morning after the draw for the announcement, and don’t forget to check your email. This could be yours!

Draw date for this giveaway is at 10 PM AST, that’s 9 PM Eastern, on Wednesday, JULY 13. This gives you less than ten days to pass the word on to others, too. I will post the winner’s name on JULY 14.

Remember, you have until July 13 to get your name into the draw, but don’t put it off!
