Blogging for a Cure Day #3, Contests, & Prizes


About the Drawing for the Limited Edition Giclee Print of an Illustration from Grace Lin’s Book Robert’s Snow: I think I need to clarify something I wrote in an earlier post that may have been misunderstood by some blog readers. I will put your name in a drawing to win the limited edition print if you comment at any of my six Blogging for a Cure posts about the 2007 snowflake artists. Leaving a comment at other posts I have written about Robert’s Snow and Blogging for a Cure won’t qualify you for the drawing.

The Blogging for a Cure Consolation Prizes: In addition to the limited edition giclee print, I have five small prints of the Robert’s Snow mouse(mice). The prints are all different. Three were included in Robert’s Snow; two were not. All have been signed by Grace Lin. So…if you don’t win the BIG prize, you still have a chance to win a special little memento of Robert’s Snow: for Cancer’s Cure.
REMEMBER: If you comment at all six of my Blogging for a Cure posts about the 2007 snowflake artists, your name will go into the hat six times!!!


Winner of My Last Wild Rose Reader Contest
It looks as if most of you missed that contest! Tricia of the Miss Rumphius Effect was the first—and only person—to guess who will be coming to dinner on November 7th at the fall meeting of the PAS North Shore Council. For the first time ever, our council is going to have a panel discussion with five creators of children’s books. Usually, we have just one featured speaker. I am truly excited because our five panelists are all Blue Rose Girls: Grace Lin, Anna Alter, Libby Koponen, Linda Wingerter, and Meghan McCarthy!!!

Tricia wins a copy of Robert's Snowflakes: Artists' Snowflakes for Cancer's Cure, which will be autographed by the four Blue Rose Girls who created snowflakes for Robert’s Snow 2004. I’ll sign it, too, if she wants. You see, my first children’s poem was published in that book!
