Red, White and Blue Makes Purple Blogfest Announcement!

Okay! Here it is. I will be hosting a blogfest/contest on September 2, 2013. Why so much time? For you to write a fabulous story of course! All the stories entered will be complied into an anthology ebook that will be available on Kindle- all proceeds to go to Operation Purple, a great organization that sends children of our military to summer camp, free of charge.  And if that's not incentive enough, this is also a contest. One randomly chosen entry will win a $50.00 amazon gift card, as well as a signed copy of my book, The Newstead Project.

I'm not going to be picking the winner based on the story- too hard for me to choose! Instead I'll be using a tally system. The more tallies you get, the more chances you have to win.

Here's how it works:

1. Sign up on the Linky below to enter - 1 tally with your name on it goes in a hat. Yes, a literal hat.
2. Post a short story of 500 words or less on your site on September 2, 2013, with a military theme, good for 10 tallies
3. Post about this blogfest/contest on your blog sometime in the next week. - 1 tally
4. On September 2, visit those who have posted stories and leave a comment on their sites- 1 tally
5. On September 2, mention this blog- 1 tally

So there it is! You don't even have to write a story to enter, although that would be helpful,  since it would be great to send some kids to camp next summer.

*The stories entered will remain the writer's property, but by entering this contest, the writer allows this site to publish entry into an anthology for the purpose of publication, with all proceeds to go to Camp Pioneer, an Operation Purple Camp.

**Sorry about not posting for Waiting on Wednesday. I will be starting that next week.
