GRAND OPENING GIVEAWAY!!

As I've mentioned in my last couple of posts, this weekend saw the launch of my brand new travel agency! Operation Relax can be found at www.operationrelax.com and has the goal of making your travel dreams come true while donating 10% of earnings towards a fund to send low-income families and couples on vacations and honeymoons. It's a win-win situation!!

Meanwhile, I'm also happy to announce that I am a nominee for the Independent Book Bloggers Award! The first round involves YOUR votes - if I get enough votes, I advance to the second round for a chance to win a trip to New York with passes to Book Expo America!

To celebrate both big occasions, I will be giving away a travel prize pack valued at $100 that includes a $50 gas gift card!! :) All you need to do is enter below - several of the options allow for daily entry - from April 10th until April 23rd! U.S. residents only at this time, sorry. Good luck and happy entering! As they would say in The Hunger Games, "May the odds be ever in your favor!"

  22. What a great new blog you have! I met you at Goodreads where we have some similar tastes in books. I voted for you there and I was one of your early followers here. Geez, I tried to follow and do most of the RaffleCopter requests, but some of them are beyond me!! LOL I'm 60-something and don't have all the knowledge some of them take, yet, but I'm learning!! I still don't have that pinterest down, but am hoping to learn how to do it soon. Where would I love to get away to? I'd love it if I could meet all of my children and little grands in Houston, TX, which seems to be a central location that's agreeable to them. They live so far away from me and each other: Boston, Louisiana and Nevada...and I'm in Southwest Florida! It means that we haven't been able to be together at the same time in several years, which is more than sad. So I don't need exotic..I just need a central, American location!! Thank you for this giveaway, good luck with your Google contest, and come see me one of these days; I have several giveaways running now, as well. Hugs, Deborah/TheBookishDame
