The Dragon Gives Away These Fabulous Prizes cool stuff

I couldn't get Nigel to just post the article he wrote for his blog over at, so I stole it and am editing it to look like I wrote it. (He said I could.)

Fantasy Author Sandy Lender is giving away free stuff. It's all intriguing merchandise, as well, so getting in on these easy contests will be worth your while.

The Book Trailer
If you haven't yet read the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods—never fear. This contest is perfect for you. It involves no outlay of cash on your part.
1. Go to
2. Watch the trailer for Choices Meant for Gods
3. Rank it with a five-star rating AND leave an uplifting comment for its creator, Jamieson Wolf by Saturday, August 4

Just like that! You'll be entered in a contest to win a dragon-knife necklace that Fantasy Author Sandy Lender will send to you with some autographed piece of CMFG memorabilia.
Your deadline to enter The Book Trailer contest is this Saturday, August 4, so don't put it off!

The Photo Contest
If you have (or haven't) finished reading the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods (it's a 418-page book—you really get your money's worth), this contest is for you merely because you already own it.

Presto! You'll be entered in a contest to win a package of spa products from Arcana's bathing rooms. The grand prize for the most creative photo gets the large package of spa goodies. The second-place prize for the person who just gets their name pulled from my fabulous 2001 Duran Duran Up Close tour hat is a slew of CMFG memorabilia—signed by me!
Your deadline to enter The Photo Contest is Saturday, August 18, so get creative and get your picture taken!

The Scavenger Hunt Contest
This is actually not as complex as it sounds. If you've already read the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, you can answer these three questions easily. If you haven't read the story of Amanda Chariss, go get it at, but the questions can be answered by following the links in the hints offered in the questions.

To the administrators at,

Sandy said she'd be delighted if you wanted to spread the word about the contests. And she'll mention that you've got it listed when she posts reminders in her online groups to help drive some traffic to your site and blog. She's intrigued by the raven-woman art piece posted in the - what was it - May posting? - at your blog.

Thank you for your help getting the word out.
All my best,

Sandy, sorry for not getting into the contests, still reading the book! It is awesome! Will get back to you later when I am done. As you know, and so does that "Naughty Boy-Jamieson Drake" I have had some laser treatments for floaters in my eyes. But things are slowly clearing and can finally read for longer periods of time!
Now back to this fantastic book....been spreading the word around and using some wonderful visuals of those bookmarks! Thank you for writing a great fantasy adventure with a wonderful gesa Chariss and that naughty boy Jamieson Drake....have to read the book to learn more about these two characters. This book will take you away from the dole drums of real life, I may not have a fantasy dragon but I do have a male Iguana named Godzilla! Does that count as owning a Dragon? LOL
Thank you, Sandy!
