Partying in Crazy Town

A few of you may know that I call my writing world The Asylum.  Really, the name came from a time when me and all the other writerly were talking about the "places" we write from.  Ted Dekker has his Dungeon, and being good little students, we wanted a namesake of our own.  I know of Bedlam, the Glitter Globe, the Bat Cave, and many more creative names.

The only name I could come up with was The Asylum.  It made sense to me because that's where all the voices are.  You know, not like actual schizophrenic voices (I don't think), but the voices of my characters.  They all have different personalities, different wants, needs, favorite foods, and dancing styles.  They are each some form of "person" who makes it into a book.  So they all belong in The Asylum where I can keep track of them and avoid things like telling the same story twice with different character names.

Anyway, we think it's time to party.  I'm taking a hint from the lovely Stephanie (of the Glitter Globe; I've talked about her a bit) and doing a massive week long party with giveaways.

Obviously it's Tuesday, so the week does not start here.  No, this is going to be a Monday-Friday event in which you can win big.  Or at least, win something.  I'm not made of money, so you're just going to have to be happy with gift cards and not fancy cars.

What am I doing to try to make this worth while?  Well, I'm thinking iTunes, Amazon, and Starbucks for a start.  There will be requirements (there always are).  If you aren't a follower of my blog already, you will want to hop on over to the sidebar scrolling the right side and do that between now and the day you'd like to win a prize.  All comments will be entries once you've established yourself as a follower.

Now, Stephanie has Slinky Dogs (which are still going up up and away, so do go visit), but I figure I need something a bit on the special side too (I learn from the best).  Well, what kind of monkey would I be if I didn't offer up some of my kind?
That's right.  I'm not monkeying around when I say one of these sweet little miscreants could be in your possession.  No worries, they aren't large, they don't eat, and will hardly take to throwing their own feces (of which there isn't any).  

Sure, the big deal right now might be your Starbuck's card, but that won't last...and monkey love is forever.

So here's the partying with me in crazy town! I can tell you everyone is excited.  Do please join us, and maybe we'll give you something in return.


Rules for entry:
  • Become a follower of my blog
  • Comment on the blog of the day in order to be in the drawing to win that day's prize (only Followers' comments will qualify)
  • Check back to see if you're the winner (winners will be posted on Facebook on my author page as well) 
  • If you did win, email me your address so I can send you your spoils!
  • Anyone winner who does not reply within 48 hours will forfeit their prize - so keep checking back!
  • Enjoy the party - it's about having fun!

Psst... I'd like the blue one, but I'd take purple, too.

Okay, the monkeys are epic. You really rock, Kelsey. What will you call the blog ten minutes from now, after publication? Hey, you're published. Don't you freelance?

Linnette - they are pretty cute in all colors. I'm in love.

And I'll keep your Secret Garden a secret *shhh*

Ah Stephanie, life is always unpublished ;) but yes I do freelance locally. Someday maybe I'll be published - depends on if I ever get back to my edits!

Rockin' monkeys ya got there! That green one's pretty hectic, he has a devil-may-care-grin... okay, I guess they all have the same look.

Writing space was The Grotto, still kind of is, but more and more it's becoming the Labyrinth. I know there's a path there that takes me where I want to go, it's just staying the course until I get there. I'm sure it'll morph into something else soon again...

Hope your trip is shaping up well!
