Prizes! I made it to 150 Followers!

This Contest is now closed. Please see this post for the winners!

In honor of having a full 150 followers, I will be giving out three prizes, a week from today. The first is a $15 B&N gift card!

Second Prize is:

A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly is a favorite of mine, a fragile and beautifully written YA historical that melds fact and fiction.

And the third Prize is a $10 gift card to Starbucks. Because let's face it, there's nothing like a little caffeine to juice up the creative instinct first thing in the morning!

To enter the contest, you must leave a comment and be a follower of my blog. And you can increase your chances to win!

+2 If you're already a follower
+1 If you're a new follower
+2 Twitter about my contest
+3 Post on FB about it
+4 Blog about it!

I'll use a random number generator to pick the three winners next week on May 21st.
Thanks to everyone for being so supportive and welcoming!
Good luck, and spread the word!
