The contest runs from now until the ball drops (0:00, 1/1/11). I’ll announce the winner(s) January 3rd.
To conclude this contest announcement, my hopes for next year:
… get a request for a partial or full of my first novel.
… finish the first draft of my second novel.
… continue blogging every day and double my followers.
… lose ten pounds.
… spread the word about Hogglepot.
… stay positive, no matter what hurdles life throws at me.
Have a wonderful day, and
edit: my husband would like me to inform everyone that it's his hard-earned money you're winning.
