Welcome to all visitors from the BlogFest 2010!

September 10-12, 2010 is going to be a weekend full of fun with hundreds of blogs participating in one massive giveaway carnival. Hopping from one blog to another, you'll be able to enter a bunch of different and totally awesome giveaways. Check out the list of blogs and giveaways at http://ajourneyofbooks.halfzero.net/

As part of the Fest-fun - I'll be offering a special giveaway of a copy of the new book, "Juliet" by Anne Fortier.  Juliet seems to be the topic of choice this fall, and this is one of the most prominent of all the releases.  I'll also include some extra romantic goodies to go along with the "Juliet" theme!



For a chance to win, just leave a comment on any of my blogs this weekend. Follow me on Google or Networkingblogs and I'll give you an extra entry!

The winner will be posted on Monday, September 13th!   Good luck! This is open to International also.

So, welcome, enjoy, and sign up!
