Welcome To My New Home, Giveaway!

To officially celebrate my new website getting up and running, I'm giving away TWO Barnes & Noble e-gift cards - each worth $15 USD!

With everyone moving towards digital e-readers, I thought instead of giving away a hard copy book, contestants should have the option on which format they'd prefer! And well, $15 can buy two eBooks - or one hard / soft copy, if you're still into the "old school" way of reading like me!

Easy-peasy Contest Rules:

1. You need to be a follower of my new website (via the Google Friend Connect option on the left side of my page...yep, it's right over there! <-------). +1 entry for new folks, +2 for those that have been around.
2.  Follow me on Twitter (@elschneid)? +1 entry for newbies, +2 for existing tweeps!
3.  Tweet about the giveaway? +2 entries (you'll need to submit your twitter handle in the comments section, so I can take a look!).
4.  Please leave a comment below with your name and total number of entries.
5.  Winners will be selected on Wednesday, April 20th
