#WITS1000 Millenium Celebration at Writers In The Storm!

We have a surprise for you today – our 1000th post happened this week and we’re celebrating big time. That means we’re celebrating you, our amazing readers. We’re more than a little bit misty over this, as we never expected to get this far when we started our little blog back in 2010.

Thank you, Amazing Readers!
Thank you, Wonderful Contributors!

We appreciate all of you who have taken this journey with us, even when we were a mostly-unknown pixel on the map of  the blogosphere. We hope y’all keep bringing new friends to visit so we can continue to grow.

*drum roll, please*

Let’s move on to the giveaways!!

There’s a Rafflecopter you’ll want to enter for the most chances to win. Winners, except for those detailed at the end of this post will be announced on our Facebook page.  If you haven’t Liked us on Facebook yet, click here or just complete the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post.

The giveaways will start in the morning (Eastern Time)
and go all day on our Facebook page.

Read on for some of today’s giveaways, and please share on social media with the hashtag #WITS1000. We’ll be combing the internet for cool tweets and updates and share them on for you.

Laura and Orly are giving away copies of their books.



We’re a crafty bunch, so you’ll get fun in between all the useful, just like you do with all our posts.

Orly’s Crochet Horse – The Distance Home (Giveaway horse will be different colors/size but still snuggly cute)


Fae Rowen makes handmade cards


Jenny knits hats during reading & TV time


Laura has opted to give away several of her most useful craft books (gently used), along with several new copies of her own wonderful works.


Additionally, Laura has offered up two query letter critiques. Considering she teaches entire classes on query letters, that’s a stellar prize!

There are some research books coming to you from Jenny and Fae, and a few fun favorites as well.


All of the above will be given away on our Facebook page, but the prizes below will ONLY go to one of our readers who comment on this blog.
