Photo Contest Announcement
Or...The Dragon is holding another contest addition to the one listed below at the "ANNOUNCEMENT and CONTEST" article where I talk about the new trailer for Choices Meant for Gods that the fellow pictured here designed for me. But before this gets good and confusing, let me explain.

As part of the celebration of the Choices Meant for Gods Online Book Tour completion and success, I'm holding several contests. There's one over at Kora's blog ( where you can win a mini spa package of relaxing lavendar products from the bathing rooms at Arcana. Oooooh, ahhhhhh. There's a contest here at The Dragon where you give the fabulous Jamieson Wolf a five-star rating and nice commentary on his trailer about how to raise your baby dragon (and that post is below). For giving Jamieson positive feedback (kudos), you could win a dragon bowie knife necklace.

And now!

Send me pictures of you reading Choices Meant for Gods! The more creative the picture, the better, because there will be two winners of this contest. One winner will receive a grand prize of mega spa products from Arcana's bathing rooms - that's the winner who sends me a photo of him or herself in the most creative environment for reading an epic fantasy novel. (Remember that this is site is rated G - you never know when a pre-teen will drop by.) The other winner will win a nice mini spa package similar to the goodies Kora's giving away over at the CMFG site, and that is easier to win because I just pull your name out of the Duran Duran hat. (Yes, I have a couple of those around here. Surprise.)

Wow, Sandy, where'd you come up with this great picture idea!?

Glad you asked, oh Dragon Visitor. My friend and fellow author Jamieson Wolf (currently on tour with The Ghost Mirror) was reading Today the Dragon Wins a couple weeks ago and saw me commenting that I needed more pictures. This was his answer to my woe. Hold a contest! And how fabulous is that? (All you other authors should take note...)

So get snappin! Set up your creative reading environment and have a buddy take a picture. Or, you know, just sit down and have someone snap your photo. E-mail me the jpeg by Saturday, August 18 (that gives you about a month) with your snail mail address (because I'll mail you your winnings). The e-mail I'd like you to use is Please include something about CMFG Photo Contest in the subject line! Thanks.

So you got all that?

1) Take a picture of you reading CMFG.
2) E-mail the jpeg to with CMFG Photo Contest in the subject line.
3) Do this before August 18 and watch your e-mail (and this site) that day for your notification of being the happy happy winner!

What's that? You don't OWN Choices Meant for Gods? Good Heavens! Get thee to Barnes & Noble! Or go to to get it right away! You've got a month... If Amazon is out (they're down to four copies at the moment), you can order it directly from my publisher at
