Whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa, or are finishing up the solstice celebrations, my best wishes to you and your families.
Mandi over at Smexy Books is having a Twelve Days of Naughty Books contest. Today she’s featuring my menages — both Texas Tangle AND Private Property. Entering is easy — drop by her site before December 26th, leave a comment telling her which book you’d like, and you’re entered. Good luck!
And Merry Christmas!
My friend Vivian Arend is trying to keep the spirit of Christmas this year on her blog with her 12 Days of Giving posts. Today she’s encouraging people to call someone and let them know you appreciate them. As part of it, she’s giving away copies of books written by her friends, and one of them is my Texas Tangle. So once you’ve figured out the 5 differences in my Firefighter calendar contest and sent me an email, head over there and give someone a virtual hug.
It’s my second annual “Spot the Differences” contest. The prize is the 2011 edition of the Toronto Firefighter calendar — the proceeds of the sales of the calendars support Toronto’s Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation. (Princess Margaret Hospital is one of the premier cancer hospitals in the world.) They don’t ship out of Canada, so if you’re in the States or elsewhere in the world, this is your chance!
As it was last year, it’s a family affair: Gizmo Guy very generously chose one of the photos he took in Toronto and Curly has photoshopped it for me. (the photo by the way is taken in Toronto’s Kensington Market)
To enter the contest, I want you to “Spot the Differences” in the two pictures. Now if you click on the pictures, they should open in full-size so it’s easier to view them. But it’s been sort of hit and miss for me — so Lisa Pietsch has very graciously offered to host the pictures on her site so you can view them full size. You can view picture one and picture two (it’s probably easiest if you right-click and open the pictures in separate tabs if you’re using Firefox or Chrome as browsers.)
There are FIVE (5) differences between photo 1 and photo 2. To enter for your chance to win this beautiful calendar, send an email to contest @ leahbraemel.com (without the spaces) with all five differences listed. You don’t have to join my mailing list or buy copies of my books. I’m just doing this for fun and to support the firefighters.
Please, please please, do NOT leave the answers in the comments — I’m changing them to moderated while this contest is running, just so no one ruins the fun.
I will accept entries until 11:59 pm Eastern time, December 30th, 2010. The winner will be chosen by random.org’s list randomizer and will be posted here on December 31st.
