Events & Super Cool Contest

I’ve got so much happening it’s hard to keep it all straight. On the good news side, the Flirting with Forty movie will air for the first time in Australia on Christmas Day! Hurray! If you’re one of my Aussie readers, Foxtel’s Universal channel will be playing it at 8:30 pm. Very, very cool!!

My not so good news is that I’m having to cancel a couple of my events next week to deal with family stuff and I hate canceling anything, much less opportunities to meet with my readers so huge apologies.  🙁

To make it up to you for not being able to do next week’s appearances, I’m hosting an incredibly cool contest—I’m giving away here on my JaneBlog one of Ty’s custom skateboards. Ty’s been shaping the board in the garage for the past day and he’s getting ready to put his art on it, and then wheels. If you have a skateboard fan in the family, this contest is for you.  These are longboard skateboards meant for cruising. Ty used to get to work at the beach by riding through Waikiki on his longboard and now he’s made one for my readers and I promise to mail it to you in time for Christmas, too!  This is the ultimate gift for the skate fan.

Here’s how to enter:

1)  Go to Ty’s site ( and read the latest Beach Girl blog on Ty’s skateboards and then post a comment about Ty’s boards there.

2) Then return to my blog and tell me that you’ve been to Ty’s site, who you’d give the board to, and why this person would love a custom made longboard.

The contest will run through Sunday night, I’ll announce the winner Monday morning and the winner has exactly 12 hours–not a lot of hours, only 12– to get back to me so Ty can personalize the board for the winner before he flies back to Honolulu on Tuesday. If I don’t hear from the winner pronto, then I will pick someone else uber pronto.

But here’s the other cool thing– if you don’t win a board, but you love the laid back beach cruiser style and want to give one as a gift, you can buy a board for 20% off cost, with free shipping AND get a free Ty Gurney Surf School t-shirt if you mention me when ordering the board from Hollie, Ty’s Shop manager.

This contest isn’t going to be for everyone–we don’t all have crazy skateboarders in the family (unlike me, who now has many,many)–but if you do, this is the Christmas present for you! Enter today if you can!!
