Campaigner Notice-Board (Friday, October 14th, 2011)

I hope you all had an awesome time entering my Second Campaigner Challenge. I can't believe how good your entries were, and I've loved reading them! I'm in the process of allocating prizes with the help of some great volunteers, and I hope to announce winners and their prizes over the weekend. Make sure you check out my post, because I'll be awarding heaps of random prizes as well as prizes for those with the most votes.

Then come back here on Monday, October 17th, when my Third Campaigner Challenge is announced. The lovely Jess P will be administering judging for the entries, and we'll be contacting those who volunteered to judge Challenges at the start of my Campaign (excluding those who've already done a round of judging). The prizes for my Third and Last Campaigner Challenge are super-awesome, so make sure you take part!

Check out these great blogfests, contests, and other announcements:

In honor of National Bullying Prevention Month please join us in a blog hop to help build awareness of “hate speech” and the role it plays in bullying. Sign up today, and post between Oct 15 and Oct 22. Check it out here.

Hi Rach! I didn't discover your blog until too late for this Campaign but I am having fun following along, reading all the entries and I'll be ready when the next Campaign rolls around. What a great idea!

Candy Fite said...

Hi, Rach! Has anyone told you lately that you ROCK? Well, you do! This campaign has been excellent medicine for this writer. It sucked me out of a writing slump, and my fingers are back to the keys. :)))

David Powers King said...

Thanks for mentioning my giveaway! I've really enjoyed participating in your campaign. Thank you for hosting such an awesome way for us to find and meet other great authors! :)

How was your vacation? You went overseas, right? I think I remember hearing that.

Hey, the next challenge starts today, right?

Thank you for mentioning my book. Such great stuff going on. I'll have to make the rounds.

The second campaign challenge was fab. I have only just realised that the 3rd challenge is posted because I have been utterly consumed with the demands of my paying job. Will try to write something this weekend :)
