Angelology Contest Kick-Off

March 11, 2010

Whew! Spring Break starts tomorrow for the kiddos and between Parent/Teacher Conferences, finishing up the Spring Fundraiser, and all the other things I’ve had on my plate, I’m flat wore out! Both kiddos did great this semester. Bear started State Assessment testing and the Reading part is complete. He scored Exceeds Expectations, but this was not enough for him! NO! The boy wanted Exemplary. We’ve explained that getting the Exceeds is awesome, not only for a dyslexic kid reading on a computer screen and then answering questions but for anyone! Plus, he was only 4 points from Exemplary, but still not good enough for him. Miss Beautiful was all “A’s” and a top reading level. I’m so proud of those two. Now, if we could just get the bullies to leave Bear alone, I think we’d be completely happy with their school experience this year! In fact, the bullying is starting to get out of hand. His markers have been stolen, along will all of his pencils and a kid took his ruler and bent it until it was no longer usable. Sigh. We’ll be stocking him up with new school supplies for this last 9 weeks. Anyone have tips to help us help him deal with bullies? Anyway, you didn’t come here to read all about my kiddos, did ya?

The winner of the Kristan Higgins books will be drawn by Miss Beautiful tomorrow morning and I will post as soon as we get that done. Thanks to all of you for entering! But today, I have a new contest to run. Thanks to Viking/Penguin, one lucky winner will receive a free copy of Angelology by Danielle Trussoni. This book is excellent, and a review will be posted tomorrow. In the meantime, check out my Author Promotion page and read and excerpt.

Ways to Enter:

Leave me a comment here telling me you want to win.

Read the Excerpt and tell why you’d like to continue reading.

Spread the word. Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, your personal blog, GoodReads, or Shelfari. Get the word out and for everyone that stops by to enter and says you sent them, you’ll get extra entries.

Every one of the above will get you an entry to the contest. The more you do, the more chances you have to win. The winner will receive the book direct from the publisher. Many thanks to Viking/Penguin and Danielle Trussoni for this great contest!

Take Care and Good Luck!

  1. I’ll play. This book intrigued me. I’d love to win a copy!

  2. The kiddos sound like they are doing great with the exception of the bully. I wish I had some sort of advice to give but I don’t have any. Seems now a days you hear more and more about kids getting bullied in school. Sad.

    Don’t enter me for the contest. Just wanted to pop in for a Hello. 🙂

      Thanks Donna! They are doing really well, they’re great kids though, so it comes easy, I just wish bullying would go away. It’s tough though, since we live in a smallish town but there are still 1000 kids in the grade school in grades K-6. Top that off with the fact our area is 70% below poverty level and tensions get high. Oh well, we’re just doing our best to teach the kids how to deal with it and move on!
