Some quick announcements that should make you all happy campers...
First, we hit 400 followers! GO YOU GUYS!! Thank you to all of you who are currently followers of our site. We greatly appreciate all our your continuous support! We couldn't and wouldn't be doing this without you.
MEGA CONTEST WINNERS UPDATE!!!
After countless hours and lots and lots of tallying, we have completed the selection of winners for the "MEGA CONTEST" Tomorrow evening along with the "Sunday Scoop", we will announce the winners! This was probably the hardest task we have faced so far since creating the site and posting our very first post. HOWEVER, every minute was worth it.... You want to know why? Good, because we are going to tell you. It was worth it because of you! You guys have stuck with us for a while, been patient, have been giving us something to work for, something to keep reading, reviewing, interviewing, and holding our contests for. We are thrilled to be able to share our insights, thought, and passion with you. That is what made every grueling minute of the contest ending process worth it all!
To share something a bit out of the ordinary and a bit unexplainable with you all.... to this day, and regardless of how many times we have mentioned the contest requirements AND the contest end date we STILL have people entering the contest as well as stating they are "followers" who are not following! This is really surreal to us. We have stated sooo many times that the most important requirement to be eligible to win is to be a follower of the site. There are still sooo many people who have tried to skate around this, it's amazing. It's amazing because we have NO IDEA why. It is not like by following we get your SS #, or are going to tap out your ATM card... Also, we have made several posts about the contest ending, including in the comments section of the contest entry post, and yet people are still entering up to and including today! The only rational explanation is that these people are not reading ANY of the other content on the site. Had they been, we are sure they would have seen all of the clues and hints that it was over. Regardless, thank you to those who pay attention and actually read our posts!
WHAT TOMORROW HOLDS
Tomorrow will be a sort of busy day. First, we will be posting our triple threat on "Adventurer's Wanted: Slathbog's Gold" by M.L. Forman. As part of the "Triple Threat" (review, interview, and contest) Mark (M.L.) will be contributing a signed copy of the book as well as a CD version for your listening enjoyment as our giveaways. We will pick 2 different winners for this one. Also, a quick reminder, we still have up for grabs a signed copy of "Candor" by Pam Bachorz!
As well, tomorrow Lauryn will be posting her review on both the book and movie of "New Moon", part 2 in the "Twilight" series. Speaking of New Moon, guess what the Gang did tonight? Yes, we did.... we saw New Moon AGAIN! Dave was tempted to take his video camera in this time to save us the $50 it cost to see it each time (if it weren't illegal, we'd be watching it from home again now!) But yes, the ladies of the house outnumbered Dave 3-1 and well, New Moon it was for our Saturday night pleasure.
Tomorrow we will also have our weekly column "Sunday Scoop" and again, that is where we will announce our winners of the Mega Contest. It is usually written at night, but keep in mind, as it is the "Sunday" Scoop, all day Sunday is fair game. Depending on how a few different plans pan out, it could be in the middle of the day, afternoon, or evening. (mornings are for sleep in the Gang's house on the weekends).
OTHER RANDOM INFO
Just for the heck of throwing some stuff into the spotlight, Mara has surprised us all in the house and since our first viewing of New Moon last Friday, Mara has power read and completed ALL of the Twilight books! Considering they are all good size books (500+ pages) that is A LOT of reading! Kudos to her!! Speaking of Mara, she and David have been busy little bees working on our new site, www.thelateinergangreviewspot.blogspot.com (not yet public) and trying to get some sponsors to give us some products to start reviewing and of course giving away to you guys. We are going to debut the site soon, but still do not have a date. Instead of rushing it, we are going to make sure we have some goodies to get you guys started with as well as a "Grand Opening" contest where we are working on a few special prizes, and hopefully one will pan out. If it does, you guys will be happy as can be. We are getting closer to inking a deal with a sponsor who wishes to remain anonymous (for now hopefully) and trying to get hold of an E-Reader to give away as our debut contest! Not to be impartial, but if it ends up happening, we are shooting to give away the "Nook" as it will be our E-Reader of choice for the Gang. NO promises at all, and we contemplated even telling you, but what the heck. Again, no promises, it's just in the works with a few other things to consider as well. Regardless, we will kick off the new site with something off the charts for sure.
Well, that is about all we have for now. Tune in tomorrow, and check back throughout the day for the "Sunday Scoop", which will include the lucky winners of the Mega Contest FINALLY!
