Visit and win… maybe

jumbo-shrimp-book-cover-webIf you’ve never heard of Katdish, you should read her blog and follow her on Twitter.

I say that because she’s awesome but also because she has very kindly donated two copies of Aaron Saufley’s The Jumbo Shrimp Gospel to my big giveaway.

The big drawing is going to be held next Thursday (September 10th 2009) at around 9pm PST. If you enter the giveaway, you could win a copy at that time as well as being in with a chance to win Max Lucado’s ‘Fearless’ or one of a whole bunch of other books.

There are also going to be daily drawings Sunday through Wednesday where you’ll have a chance to win other books.

I decided to kick things off a little early though, in a Rediscovering the Church kind of way:

I decided to select one blogger out of all the entrants into the giveaway for some special attention. I prayed about it and decided that the best way to pick that blogger was to use the random number generator at

The generator picked number 24 which turned out to be Erlinda over at Here’s What I Think.

So here’s the deal: this giveaway is not all about getting new readers for my blog, it’s about helping us all to Rediscover the Church. That’s why I’ve offered bonus entries into the giveaway if you write guest posts, or go say Happy Birthday to Helen, or write about the subjects closest to my heart on your blog and it’s why, today, I’m giving two things to people who visit Erlinda’s blog.

If you go read her blog and make a comment, you will get:

  • Two bonus entries into the big giveaway, which gives you two more chances to win every day – including the big finale on Thursday.
  • An entry into a special extra giveaway of one of the copies of The Jumbo Shrimp Gospel.

Yes, you read it right. By commenting over at Erlinda’s blog, you get bonus entries PLUS the chance to win TODAY (actually, it’s tomorrow because I’m going to let it run until tomorrow afternoon).

So, head on over to Erlinda’s blog, say Hi, show her some love as a sister in Christ, enjoy what she has to say and tomorrow evening you could be the first winner in the Big Blogiversary Giveaway!
