I'm having a giveaway to celebrate my 200th follower!!!

Ok, I've told you all week (I know it's just Tuesday, but it feels longer than that!) about giveaways.  Well, I just had my 200th follower sign up,  and I'm going to send her a surprise for doing that but I'm also going to have a giveaway to my faithful followers too.  I haven't decided yet what the surprise will be but I know it will at least be a book and maybe some other goodies too. As soon as I decide what it will be, I'll post it and show you...I'm going to start today to take entries and I will close the deadline out on Saturday night, Sept. 3rd.  Please leave a comment on this post and tell me you are interested in winning a surprise.  I'm not going to make you do anything special, but this drawing is only open to my followers. When you comment, just tell me where you're from. No particular reason, I just wonder where everybody lives.  Ok?  So, have fun and sign up to win a prize!
