Contest Day: Tantalizingly Tempting Tuesday

Happy Tuesday All,

So far the Write By Bethany's 25+ Followers Celebration is off to a great start! Yesterday went really well, so let's keep it going, shall we?

Just like yesterday, be sure to read the whole post!

Yesterday's winner was Kathy. Congratulations! You'll be receiving your copy of Laura Childs' Scones & Bones as soon as Laura can send a copy. Enjoy and thank you for participating.

Thank you, also, to everyone who participated yesterday. If you didn't win, I have good news! You have a chance to win a different prize today!

A little bit of trivia about today:  Originally it was going to be called Tip Top Tuesday--but in light of today's drawing, I wanted something a little bit more intriguing...

Why? you ask...

Well here's how today is going to be run...

Today's prize is donated, courtesy of author, Ciara Gold, whom I interviewed in November of 2010. She has graciously agreed to giveaway a copy (in PDF file format) of her e-book, The Keeper Of Moon Haven (released last year) to one lucky person who comments on today's blog post.

So let's get started, shall we?

FIRST:  As always, give me your first name (or a nickname)

SECOND:  You must include your email address (otherwise you'll be disqualified--and I really don't want to disqualify anyone).

THIRD:  For Fun:  Tell me...what's your favorite fairytale creature?

One entry per person. The contest closes today at 9:30 p.m. Central Time (7:30 p.m. PACIFIC and 10:30 p.m. EASTERN).

**Please make sure your email inboxes are open to receiving emails from my email address: bethany.averie@yahoo.com as this is how I'll alert the person they're the winner and get their mailing information so I can forward it to Ciara.**

I'll announce today's winner publicly tomorrow (Wednesday) just before I talk about how Wednesday's contest day will be run.

If you have any questions, please email me.

Enjoy today's Tantalizingly Tempting Tuesday contest :-)

Have A Tantalizing Tuesday!

As far as fairytale creatures go...I loved everything and everyone in Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Especially the beast...although he really was a man (talk about dark heros!)...so does that count? lol.

Bethany said...


The Beast ALWAYS counts when it comes to talking about what you like of fairytales. Maybe I'm biased, but when I was younger I wrote 2 different retellings of "Beauty & The Beast" (both of which are lost to me)--one was in high school, the other in my early to mid 20's.

Thank you for your entry! I've got your name in the box for tonight's drawing :-)

Hi Bethany!

I'm a Beauty and The Beast fan as well.

I always liked Rumpelstilskin because the heroine was cagey and tricked the villin. At least that's the way my mother told it to me. She had a habit of censoring fairy tails to make them more child-friendly.

Bethany said...


It's definitely a good fairytale :-)

Bethany said...


I don't hear too many people saying they like "Rumplestilskin" but you're right about the heroine being smart!

Thank you for your entry! I've got your name in the box for tonight's drawing :-)

Bethany said...

The contest is closed for Tuesday. Tomorrow (Wednesday) is another drawing.

I'll be announcing the winner on Wednesday's post :-)

Tuesday's winner is announced in Wednesday's post.
