I would like to start by thanking everyone who visited my blog.  The turnout was wonderful, and so much more than I expected!  The excitement generated by people was infectious, drawing me along on an all together different, but amazing ride!
I would also like to thank Silverwood Theme Park, who without their support, none of this would have been possible.  Over the last several weeks, I have worked with some of the most amazing people in any industry, and I am thrilled knowing even though my blog contest is over, I have made some truly amazing friends.

Read on for a chance to win!!

I am thrilled to bring an opportunity of a lifetime to you, thanks to my friends at Silverwood Theme Park www.silverwoodthemepark,com  

First, I would like to take a minute to tell you about Silverwood Theme Park (STP), and a few of the events they sponsor for children and their families.
Located in beautiful North Idaho, Silverwood Theme Park has over sixty-five rides, slides, shows and attractions, including four roller coasters!  Boulder Beach Water Park, a steam engine train, live entertainment, restaurants and so much more!
They have a theme park unlike any I have ever experienced!  In addition to a theme park filled with various, incredible rides and engaging events, right next door is Boulder Beach Water Park, encompassing an astounding twenty-one acres!  Pictures and words cannot possibly do it justice; to see it in person is astounding, and literally takes my breath away!
Silverwood Theme Park seeks to bring the best to their visitors, assuring you have an experience unlike any other, and this year they have surpassed this with the addition of an amazing new ride - this one is the first of it's kind in the world! At one hundred and four feet tall, the thrill ride has cylindrical-shaped vehicle seats that hold twenty-four people, facing outward, with their legs left dangling. They are supported by a harness as the vehicle rotates three hundred and sixty degrees, at thirteen revolutions per minute!  At the same time, the entire vehicle is swinging like a giant pendulum, until you are upside down, suspended over one hundred-four feet above ground level!  Riders are then brought all the way around, to repeat again, at over three and a half times the normal gravitational pull!  This is a ride unlike no other - a statement of fact - as it is the only of it's kind in the world!  To see a video of this ride, click HERE
SIlverwood Theme Park, in an effort to make their park available to all children and their families, has also sponsored two wonderful events:
  • Essay and Art Contest: Silverwood and the Spokesman-Review have teamed up for a wonderful essay contest.  They invite all students, including those involved with an accreditated home school program, in the Greater Northwest (Washington, Idaho, Oregon, BC or Montana) to write a one-hundred to five-hundred word essay describing a person in their life who would greatly benefit from a trip to Silverwood Theme Park!  In your essay, tell us why they would love a free trip - and you, your immediate family, and the special person will receive passes to the Silverwood!  You can find out more information on submitting your essay, including the rules  HERE
  • Family-A-Day:  Another wonderful Silverwood sponsored item is their Family-A-Day Giveaway.  Do you know of a family that deserves a fun-filled day at Silverwood Theme Park?  Enter their contest by clicking HERE  (The submission must be completed by someone eighteen or older.)
In addition to an amazing rides, a water park which would make a dolphin drool, incredible family entertainment, and events, Silverwood has graciously agreed to allow me to give away five (5) pairs of tickets to their wonderful establishment! That means you, and someone of your choosing, can go to Silverwood yourselves, experience the thrill first hand - experience the fun fist hand, experience the terror.....first hand.  
If you are interested in an opportunity to visit Silverwood Theme Park, to experience a day of pee in your pants excitement, enter the drawing below! Silverwood has asked that I run the drawing for a one-week period of time.  After which, Rafflecopter will draw the five winners.  I will then contact you to arrange to mail your tickets to you!!  How easy is that?!  Remember, this contest is open to all - whether you have visited Silverwood Theme Park in the past or not.  For each item you complete in the contest, which are as easy as clicking a link, you are granted the listed amount of entries!

I can assure you, Silverwood is an experience like no other.  When they say it is "The Northwest's Largest Theme Park," they are not kidding, or over-exaggerating!  To see it in person is astounding!
If you are interested in seeing some videos showing Silverwood Theme Park, their rides, the grounds, and other exciting events, click HERE to see some amazing videos!
In ending, I would like to give a BIG SHOUT OUT, and an even bigger thank you, to Silverwood Theme Park. The people I have worked with at Silverwood are some of the best in the industry - I have never felt more welcomed than at Silverwood Theme Park, where I am not simply a visitor, but part of a big, extended family.  I hope you have the opportunity to visit Silverwood and see for yourself.  What better cue to our drawing below....good luck, and to those who are fortunate enough to win tickets....bring Dramamine!  LOL  =)

Thank you Silverwood Theme Park!  What you did for my family, what you do for families, marks people's lives in ways you cannot possibly imagine. You are not simply a theme park, but a place where fond memories are created; memories which will last through childhood and beyond.  For this, and so much more, we thank you!  You are an asset to our community.

Big Hugs,

Shelbie Knight =)

Weekly Update

Hello everyone!  I decided to stop by my blog today to give a little update on what's coming up and what's going down!  =)
First, I have been very busy these last couple of weeks, as I am dedicating as much of my free time to writing as possible.  Added to this, I have both of my kids home on Summer break, and my free time has been slim.  Regardless, I have managed to put in some good work on my first to-be-published piece.
Exciting news on the publishing front is that I am in talks with a publisher who is interested in representing my work, as well as offers from a few others!  I am thrilled and honored to have the opportunities presented to me, and hope to have announcements as to who I will be working with in the near future.  Until I sign a contract, I will not release any names - for obvious reasons.
In the next couple of days, I am planning a really neat drawing/giveaway on my blog.  I am in the planning stages of it now, and hope to have something going after the 4th of July.  I figured, with the Holiday coming up, it didn't make a lot of sense to start it right before.  So, please keep a eye out on my blog for announcements on this front as well. =)
I hope everyone is well, and you are successful at whatever it is you work towards.  In that light, I would like to send my congratulations to several Authors who have new releases this week:

1 - Kresley Cole - "MacRieve" (The Immortal After Dark Series)
2 - Christine Warren - "Hungry Like A Wolf" (A Novel of The Others)
3- Lora Leigh, Alyssa Day, Melejean Brook & Lucy Monroe - "Enthralled" (anthology)
4 - Kathy Love & Erin McCarthy - "Fangs for Nothing"
5 - Thea Harrison - "The Wicked" (novella) 
6 - Yasmine Galenorn - "Night Vision" (A Novel of the Indigo Court)

These are just a few of the wonderful Authors whose work I read, so if you are looking for a wonderful read, please check them out!!
Have a wonderful week everyone...and until next time....Big Hugs!
Shelbie =)
