Last chance to enter the giveaway!

A long story involving hoards of geeks at Comic Con, a stupid humid heatwave, and an small army of mosquitos left me pretty much inhuman (to differing degrees of happiness – I quite liked the Comic Con bits) over the weekend. That means you still have time to enter! I’ll close the comments tonight and […]

SOAM Birthday Giveaway!

It’s that time of year again! The earth has circled the sun eight times since I started SOAM one day while my little children were napping. Now my children are all big and almost teenagery and SOAM is a worldwide website with more than 100,000 visitors every month. Since SOAM started all those years ago […]

Under normal circumstances I’d be more prepared to […]

Giveaway on TIAW

Have you checked it out yet? You can enter to win a copy of The Beauty of Different and spread the word about TIAW at the same time. It’s win-win!

And the Winners are….

…Marissa C and Allison! I realize there are simpler ways to determine a winner, but I’m running on exhausted today and for a number of reasons that seem too much effort to explain, it turns out the more tedious method also happens to be the one requiring the least brainpower. My son – the one […]

A Birthday! And a Giveaway!

In honor of SOAM’s upcoming fourth birthday, I am hosting a DVD giveaway! I happen to have a couple copies of 50 Nude Women which the producer, Margot, is refusing to let me pay for because she is clearly completely awesome. I first became aware of this short film through one of SOAM’s readers several […]
