I am very excited.  Average of over 3,600 a month for 69 months.  250,000 is a big number. Indianapolis Speedway Stadium is the only speedway that will hold that many people.

I’m running to this blog post because I’d like to do something fun with you to celebrate with you.

Walk. Walk. Walk.

I’m running to meet you on this virtual page to celebrate with you!

What are your ideas?

Ask me questions! Tell me what kind of free prizes do you cherish as a writer or illustrator?

Let me know your favorite blog post or what you like about my blog. I’ll put all the names of the people who leave a comment on this post between now and July 31, 2015  in a virtual hat and have Random.org choose a winner. I’ll announce the winner on August 1, 2015.

What you’ll win: a blog post about you and your writing or illustrating on my blog highlighting ten writing or illustrating tips that have helped you the most.  I’ll also give you a 15 minute phone call in the United States consultation on: blogging, writing, or submitting, If the winner is out of the USA, I’ll Skype you for 15 minutes.

Celebrate you!

  6. I’m new to your blog. I’m drawn to your motto Never Give Up which can be hard to do as you go through the publishing process.
    Congratulations, Sue

    • Dear Sue,
      Thanks for subscribing to my blog. I’m so glad you’re here. I’m glad that Never Give Up pulled you to my blog. You’re right. The temptation to give up may come often in the publishing process. When you have a strong belief in you and your work, it will carry you through. Having skills and know-how builds up our belief. That’s what I try to give you – skills and knowledge to help you get there! You will be published! Believe it.

      Thanks for celebrating with me.
