Blog Birthday & Giveaway!

I remember when I started thinking about doing this. I needed my own platform. I’d written for businesses and magazines but the process was starting to exhaust me.

No? Just me? I enjoy giving thoughtful gifts to the people that I love! So I analyze many different factors to come up with the perfect gift. Realistic, right? But what do you get for the person that seems to have everything? Don’t worry I’m here to help you figure it out. Continue Reading

Journal Giveaway!

Don’t you just love FREE stuff? Shoot, I do!

You may already know that I have a creative writing and editing firm (McGee Manuscript Group).

We were cleaning off a bookshelf and came across some really cute journals. So we decided to give them away! Even if you’re not a professional author or writer, journals always come in handy. They can be used for diaries, meeting notes or to write out recipes. Some of these have bookmarks so you can always pick up where you left off. One of them says “It is better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” Um, hello – I totally agree!

There are only 3 things you need to do to win!

  1. Email your favorite quote from your favorite book here by 7/24/15.
  2. “Like” McGee Manuscript Group’s Facebook page.
  3. Share this blog post on your timeline to give more people a chance to win.

That’s it! Everyone has a chance to win! Winners will be chosen at random.

Good luck!
