For those of you that don't know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! So, I have some Pink items and another special giveaway for this wonderful cause. The American Cancer Society is VERY Near and Dear to Me! I love that they are the "Official Sponsor of Birthdays" and I'm happy to say that ONE of those birthdays are MINE! While I did not have breast cancer, I feel that a person dealing with any type of this disease can relate to just how important it is to stay positive, keep fighting and to never give up! We WILL One Day Find a Cure! I have an adorable Pink Curling Iron and Straightening Iron from Barbar coming up that I will review and then ONE Lucky Reader will have the very same item that I received. If you'd like to know what it looks like, just check HERE! There will be other items up this month, be sure to look for those!
Now because October is also time for Halloween, I have quite a few spooktacular book reviews and giveaways coming up! One includes a HAUNTINGLY HUGE HALLOWEEN GIVEAWAY sponsored by Hachette Book Group which includes FIVE Spooky Books for each of THREE Very Lucky Winners! With that Giveaway, your name will be put in a drawing, and you could be one of 20 people that will also be receiveing a SIXTH Book which is an ARC of "The Bride Collector" by Ted Dekker! What are the other five? Watch for the Giveaway!
Enough right? After those, you don't want ANY more Giveaways.... right? I mean, you must be all giveawayed-out! NO! I'm Shocked! Well then, good thing because I've got MORE!
I'm SO sorry I've been away and I will be making it up to all of you, but I did miss being able to write and talk with all of you! I'm going to TRY (key word) to post at least one post daily. If not, it's probably because I'm just not feeling too well that day but I WILL post as I can.
I do have one *little* thing that I'd like to address because I did have a problem with this. For the MOST part, I (as in ME, Personally) am VERY Rarely responsible for sending out Prizes! With that said, I am also not responsible for any prizes that are NOT received by you once I submit your name to the specific publishers, companes, and/or PR companies. OK? I am SURE they will ALL send what's promised to you. Just give them a little time. If you feel you've been waiting a LONG time (like 8-10 weeks) then feel free to drop me a line about a prize and I'll see what I can do. I have never come across a company that didn't send the prize. I just thought I'd add that as my *disclaimer* to all of you lucky lucky prize winners! In other words, I put up my HONEST review based on either the book/product that I recieved and then I pass along the books and products that are promised in a giveaway to you! Most of the time this only includes me sending your name along. IF FOR SOME REASON I (as in ME, Personally) HAVE THE PRIZE HERE - I WILL MAIL THAT OUT TO YOU AS SOON AS I CAN! If I'm a late, I do apologize, but things come up and the day it gets mailed out to you, I promise you will get an email from me! If I have the prize you WILL have your prize! Now that all that has been discussed, it will not be brought up again...it's listed on the "Giveaway Policy" Page which is tabbed at the top of my blog!
I hope you're ready to WIN...because I'm getting ready for the holidays which are my favorite time of the year and THIS PRINCESS is in the GIVING MOOD! Thank you ALL again! I'm a *bit late* with "Saturday Spotlight" but I'll see if I can get it up! If not, I do have some winners! Sorry for the long-winded post, it was MUCH needed!
If YOU have any questions, comments and/or concerns, PLEASE feel free to contact me! I'm always ONE CLICK AWAY! After all, without your input, this blog cannot continue to grow! So -- Preach to the Princess!! Also, I want to suggest - that means strongly but you don't have to do it - that you sign up for email subscriptions or my feed so you don't miss your name when you win and important posts that are listed. I have some ROYAL GIVEAWAYS coming up that are NOT TO BE MISSED!!
That's all for now! I'll be back with THREE Big Winners!! (and possibly a Saturday Spotlight!)
KISSES & TOODLES!
