Next Week In Seekerville
Monday: Seekerville presents our Rockin' 24 hour New Year's Eve Party. Starting at 12:01 until the clock strikes 12 PST on Tuesday, we have hourly writer hosts and virtual food and real live giveaways. Winners announced live on the hour. The complete winner list will be posted on Tuesday.
Tuesday: Seekerville closes at 4 a.m. PST to clean up after the party and to celebrate New Year's Day (AKA sleep).
Wednesday: It's the January Contest Update and the prize vault IS OPEN!!
Thursday: Today join Love Inspired author, Audra Harders who just recently grasped the meaning of "bigger and better is not always as it seems," and plans to share some of her New Year's Revolutions on the subject...and of course ask for input from the audience. Since most of us have resumed some semblance of diet restrictions after the holidays, there will be no chocolate given away, instead-a chance at a $15 gift certificate to Amazon or B&N or Christianbook.com
Friday: Every Friday during this busy Holiday Season Seekerville will be sharing a Best of the Archives post along with a giveaway. Don't miss this very last oldie but goodie of the season!
4 more days until Claiming Mariah releases and Pam's Blog Tour begins. She blows the door off the Prize Vault on January 1st!
Mary Connealy will be on Mary Vee's blog starting on Friday, January 4th and she'll be giving away a signed copy of Out of Control, book #1 of the Kincaid Brides series.
Just LOOK what we found on Amazon!
