The Journey BEGINS!!!

Okay pull out your maps.

We're going on a journey with The Stone Traveler that will last from today until September 30th (though we will not travel on Saturdays or Sundays).

We'll have rivers to cross, mountains to climb, and yes, comments to leave, but there will be prizes along the way. Each week I'll gather the names of those who have commented on the journey's sites, and they will go into the hat for the weekly drawing. Each Monday I will announce the winner of the previous week. (Take a look at the sidebar...over there to the left. See the little jaguar, the chocolates and the stone necklace. All of those make up a weekly prize. Cool, huh?)

But that's not all.

ALL the names go into the pot (different from the hat so they won't get confused) for the grand prize drawing of a KINDLE. Even if you've won a weekly prize your name will still go in the grand prize pot.

The only thing you need to do is leave a comment on each site on the journey. Easy!!!

Today is the beginning of this awesome journey with The Stone Traveler.

If you become separated from the rest of us or if you join us late, please look at the blog tour listing (over there above the cute weekly prizes). There are links where you can go to comment and catch up with us.

So our journey begins by clicking here.

Make sure to stay on the path and leave a comment.

Good luck!

    Thoughts in Progress

  11. Mason,
    I hope you come with us. A journey such as this has room for a lot of people. :)

  12. What an awesome thing you have going on here!

    And your next novel that you described on my blog immediately put me in the mood to read it! I love Alaska!

  13. Very interesting idea.

    I'll post it on my blog for you, and try to keep up myself. I have problems visiting blogs every day though, so I'm likely to miss several.

    But I'm sure the one's I catch will be great fun.


  14. What a fun journey! Heading over there now to check it out.

  15. Carolyn,
    I wanted to make it fun for every one. Hope you can join the journey!

  16. T. Anne,
    Thanks. I hope others think it's awesome as well.

    And I'm so into Alaska right now, doing research and writing.

    If I'm not in the jungles of South America I'm sledding near the North Pole. ;)

  17. Donna,
    Don't worry. You can catch up using the links in my sidebar. I'd love to put your name in the hat for the weekly prize and the pot for the grand prize. ;)

  23. Phew, keeping up as fast as my little legs will let me. Have fun Kathi!

    Wait for me, I have a *Stone* in my shoe!

  24. Glynis,
    I'm so glad you're coming with us. Of course, we'll wait for you. But you shouldn't keep your stone in your shoe. ;)

  25. I'm lovin' the photos. Where did you find them?

  26. Ranae,
    I usually get my pictures from I'm glad you like them.

  27. What a cool idea! I'm a little late on the journey but I'm still going to try to join in on the fun! ;-)

  28. Kristi,
    The only thing you're late for is last week's prize, but that doesn't mean you can't catch up and be eligible for this week's prize OR for the grand prize at the end of the month.

    I'm so glad you've joined us. There's always room in this boat. :)

  29. What a fun idea Kathi! I think I'll join the journey.
