My First Ebook Contribution!!

Hello everyone!

scrapideas ebook cover 498x336

Today, I would like to share a huge first step of mine with you all. Yes! I'm finally into the world of "books"! Ok, not a hard copy one yet but it's still my first step getting there. 

My first ever ebook contribution titled "ScrapIdeas" is officially launched!!
Here's the story behind it.

Months ago, I came across an awesome book editor and he told me of his plans to publish a Scrapbooking ebook. The book will feature pro scrapbookers who are based in various countries like Canada, US, Australia, Malaysia, Norway and the Philippines.

I contributed a few of my projects in the book and had shared the stories and thoughts on each of the projects in great depth. The idea was to share with the readers some secrets and tips of how I came to achieve each project.

The publisher gave the contributors of the ebook the rights to share one bonus preview project and my first thought was to share this with my dear blog readers :) And you know, that is you.

To get your exclusive bonus preview copy please go here!

In lieu of this exciting news, I've decided to do a huge blog giveaway!! I'm still picking out the products and the stack is getting bigger and bigger. Just a hint on the giveaway, you will find bunnies in it!!!..What you have to do to participate in this giveaway? Easy. Just talk about this launch everywhere with a link to this post.  It can be on your blog, your facebook, forums, chat groups...etc... Leave comments here showing the links to it and you will be eligible for the draw! The winner will be announced on 15th March.  

Share this free bonus preview with all your friends! Happy Reading and help me to celebrate this huge step!
