Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

As you may have noticed, I'm celebrating the recent publication of my one thousandth post with a GIVEAWAY! Woot! I even figured out the Rafflecopter thingamabob. It's at the top of my blog, under my profile picture. I'm accepting entries now!

And, no, I will not give away Franklin.

I figured some details about the Giveaway might be helpful.

It's open to residents of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia. Here's a copy of the Rafflecopter, just in case you don't see it on the page:

a Rafflecopter giveaway

You can enter until midnight, December 15th. I hope to get prizes out to you in time for Christmas, so you can give the prize to yourself or use it as a gift for someone else.

Here are the prizes to be had, Dear Hearts:

One softcover copy each of three books I've edited or assisted in editing:

Day Laughs, Night Cries by Peaches Ledwidge:

Homeless In Hawaii by EC Stilson:

The latest release on which I worked, Cleft Heart: Chasing Normal by Karl Schonborn:

Also up for grabs, two Amazon gift cards, each worth $25; one Editor's Tip t-shirt from Janie Junebug's Tease (you get to choose the style, color, and size; and, last, but I hope not least, $150 worth of editing by Janie Junebug. I'll go over a WIP, a finished novel or story, help you write your profile for a dating site – I just won't work with porn.

Entering is easy:
  • One entry each day if you follow my blog
  • One entry for becoming a new follower on Twitter (@JanieJunebug)
  • One entry each day for leaving a comment on my blog post
  • One entry each day for tweeting about the giveaway
  • FIVE entries for becoming a new follower of my blog (please don't stop following and then start again to become a new follower–that's kind of snarky)
  • Five entries for writing a blog post about the giveaway
  • TEN entries for sending a birthday card to my mother-in-law, who will celebrate her 80th birthday during December. Within the next day or two, I should be able to provide the post office box to which you can send the card. I would love to have 80 cards to pass on to her. 
If you don't want to enter the giveaway, but you're willing to send a card to my mother-in-law (a very special lady), then please email me at for the PO Box. You'll send the card to me; I'll open the cards to make sure some evil-doer doesn't try to send something nasty; then I'll send the cards to my MIL, whose name is Margaret. She's the kind of person who enjoys sweet, sentimental cards. It will really mean a lot to me if you send a birthday card to Margaret. She doesn't read my blog. I look forward to surprising her.

Please email me if you have any questions.

Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

Willy Dunne Wooters wants you to enter, too. Willy Dunne Wooters and Bradley Cooper are friends. Isn't that cool?


  1. That's a pretty spiffy giveaway, kiddo. Verrry generous of you, and I especially love the idea of surprising your MIL with a bunch of birthday wishes from your minions. (I'm in!)

  2. Uh-oh--are we supposed to have elaborate give-a-ways for significant posts? You've set the bar really high with all of this fanfare.

    Just out of curiosity, what do you charge to edit a 250 page manuscript? Feel free to leave your response at



  3. I don't want to win your prizes, but I WOULD like to send your mother-in-law a card!! please email me the address.

  4. Your 1,000th post!?! Wow, I'm not even half way there yet and I've been at this blogging thing for years. I would love to send a card to your MIL. I promise not to be my usual weird-o self, I'll try to be a sincere human.

    1. I'm sure you're always a sincere human being in your own interesting way.

  5. Whoohoo! Sounds great! And I'll be emailing you for the card address. What a terrific thing for you to do~

  6. And I think your gmail address is missing the .com. It wouldn't take it the first time I tried to send it~

  7. AHHHH!! How have to stopped into your blog as many times as I have and NOT become a follower? Crazy. Remedied now. Sending you virtual cheese to help celebrate!

  8. What a generous give away! I would love to send your MIL a card. My email address is at the top of my blog, under Contact Me (well, I guess you could have figured that out). I checked on my most popular blogs and also looked at the gadget, which is called Popular Blogs, not the most popular. That's a BTW since my last comment. I'm at around 850 posts, I will wait until my 1,000 and use your idea.

    1. I'll let you know the PO Box, Inger. Thank you.

  9. Ooh, maybe you can go on a double date with Bradley Cooper. I'll be Bradley's date. *eyebrows* *eyebrows* *eyebrows*

    CONGRATULATIONS on the big 1 three O's!!! *confetti* *confetti* *confetti*

    I'm in for sending a card---and I am not a strong card-sender, so this is a big. deal. ;)

    1. I want both of them for myself. I need two men. God bless you for leaving your microcosm to send a card.

  10. No porn, huh? WDW has a cute friend!

    1. Yeah, no porn. I strongly suspect Margaret isn't into it.

  11. Hi Janie - I've emailed you re Margaret .. and I'll post one off for her December birthday .. great giveaways you're offering ...

    Cheers for now - 1,000 posts is awesome ... Hilary

  12. I've been in love with Bradley Cooper since Alias. Yummy yum yum.


    1. I first saw him in a small part on Sex and the City. Never forgot that moment.
