THREE CONTESTS - 3 times as fun

Contest #1 - Cheap e-reads writing and design contest. I am lucky enough to be one of three judges. Details are below: 
Cheap e-Reads
The winner of each contest receives a $50 B&N gift card, free publication of their work and free publicity on The Cheap and all our outlets. The deadline for entry is October 14th. Details can be found on our blog, The Cheap, at
Contest #2 - Win a Sterling Silver Spider ring!

My sister made this sterling silver ring especially for my contest. The ring is adjustable to fit any size. To enter, just leave your email (ex.: theresa ragan @ gmail dot com) in the comment section HERE or under the CONTEST TAB and write ANY sentence with the word "spider" in it. (ex: I love spiders.)

Contest ends October 31, 2011.

Contest #3 - Want Your Name in sequel to ABDUCTED?

I am taking names. On October 31, 2011, I will pick one or two names to use for character(s) in Book #2 of the Lizzy Gardner series (sequel to ABDUCTED by T.R. Ragan). To enter this contest just leave a comment with your email address and give me the name you would like used in the book: (example: RUTH COLE CUNNINGHAM or maybe just RUTH COLE), whatever you like. 

Here's the catch. You won't know whether the character with your name will be dead or alive by the end of the book. That's the risk you'll be taking if you enter contest #3.

Feel free to enter Contest #2 and #3 with one comment. What are you waiting for? If you have any problems leaving a comment, please email me at  GOOD LUCK!

Come on...somebody must want to win a sterling silver SPIDER ring! You'll be the talk of the town!

And how about your name in my next book? No takers? If not, I'll have to use the names of my highschool friends or I guess I could always use the phone book. :)

First, spiders freak me out, except in the form of really adorable rings :) second, my name is Charleen Sydney Bingaman but everyone calls me Charlee for short. Frankly if anyone ever calls me Charleen I don't respond, because I've never been used to hearing it.

Theresa, I love your books. I'd love to read a sequel to Finding Kate Huntley, I can only imagine what AJ's story would be! Thanks for the wonderful reads so far!!

Theresa Ragan said...

Hi Charlee! Thanks for liking my books and for entering my contest. I know what you mean about spiders, but I swear, this is the cutest ring ever. :)

If you see this message, Charlee, please give me your email address (either privately or here) so that you will be officially entered into both contests. I tried clicking on your name to see if I could find an email that way, but that didn't work.

I just read ABDUCTED and I loved it! I couldn't stop reading it and lost many hours of sleep as well as ignoring my work, but it was well worth it. I have just discovered your work and am looking forward to more.

Sorry for the mishap, but for some reason, Blogger is not allowing me to show/post comments on the TAB/ENTER CONTEST PAGE, so all comments needed to be moved to this September 25th post.

If anyone is having a difficult time entering, please emails me at and I will post your entry here!

Thank you and good luck!
