ChaBooCha starts tomorrow! Are you ready? Feel free to use either (or both) of the two badges (Chapter Book Challenge or ChaBooCha) here on your website or blog as long as you are participating in the challenge. If you know how, please link them to this site (www.chaboocha.com or www.chapterbookchallenge.com).
If you blog about the challenge, tweet about the challenge or share it on Facebook (please do), please use the hashtag #ChaBooCha, so that everyone can easily search for your post, tweet, or Facebook share.
You will be receiving e-mails of the blog posts throughout the month of March (during the challenge). You can opt out of those e-mails by e-mailing me at Rebecca (at) Fyfe (dot) net and asking to be removed from the e-mail list for this year. The blog post e-mails will end as soon as the challenge ends.
Have you outlined for the challenge, or are you a "pantser" who just wings it as you go?
As usual, there are loads of prizes lined up for the challenge, and, if you are signed up, all you need to do to enter for most of the prizes is comment on the blog post that features the prize.
Good luck and let's have some fun!
We have an awesome line-up of guests who will be posting during this challenge. I'm in contact with some others who, if they decide to join us, you will be very excited about. (I hope you will be as excited about our guests this month as I am!)
