Hey awesome readers, we've got something special for you! For the month of August the SBP authors want to thank you for reading our books by giving away prizes. There will be two winners chosen at the end of the month.

First Contest: There is a new database on the Yahoo fan loop asking for your basic info (name, email and favorite genre). Feel free to put your SN as your first name if you prefer anonymity. We just want to know what to call you. At the end of the month we will randomly draw a winner from that database.

Second Contest: It's been kind of quiet on the loop. Talk to us! You never know who might be hanging out to answer questions, give opinions or just talk. The second contest winner will be randomly drawn from the posts. I'll be checking everyday for new posts.

Also, check the calendar! This month there will be character interviews and other things going on. Have a favorite author you'd like to hear from? Let us know!
Good Luck!
