Winner of Entangled book giveaway!

25 Sep

Congratulations to….


…for winning an Entangled book of your choice! Dawn is listed as =P in the comments of my last post, and I knew that was her because we worked together years ago and she used that symbol all the time. At the time, I had no idea what it meant, so I just called her “equals p.” (Yes, we called ourselves “junior high friends” since that’s pretty much how people saw us.)

Congratulations, Dawn! You’ll be happy to know that my son Jack did the drawing for me and pulled your name (although he said, “Whatever Mom”)! I will be sending you My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century since it released the day I did this post and was edited by my awesome editor, Stacy Abrams.

Equals P.

Thank you to everyone who entered! I really appreciate all the kind words and best wishes. You all are the best!

The Answers You’ve Been Waiting for

22 Jan

How many of the ten 70’s and 80’s sitcoms in 18 parodied scenes were you able to identify on your own? Now watch this version to see the answers revealed.

4 Chicks and a Muse: The Theme Song

2 Jan

Here it is! The moment you’ve all been waiting for, including your chance to win that all-new Kindle. (Scroll down to find our regular posts)

In this video, the 4 Chicks pay homage to 10 different classic 1970’s and 80’s TV sitcoms, in 18 parodied theme song scenes. Think you can name the sitcoms?

  1. First, subscribe to the 4 Chicks and a Muse blog (click “Speak to Me, Muse!”); or like its page on Facebook.
  2. Next, identify the 10 sitcoms whose popular opening scenes are featured.
  3. Finally, email your answers to chickstories@gmail.com by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, January 16, 2012.

NOTES: One winner will be randomly selected from all correct entries. A correct entry is an email that lists the 10 sitcoms featured in any order. Because there are 18 parodied scenes, this means that many sitcoms appear in more than one scene. And remember, these are Chick interpretations, not exact reproductions. So you may have to use a little more, er, imagination to recognize some scenes. If there are no entries with all 10 sitcoms listed correctly, winner will be drawn from those with the most correct guesses.

Oh, and while I, the Muse, accept full glory for inspiration of this video, I must share credit for bringing it to fruition:

Kindle Your Creativity in 2012

29 Dec

The 4 Chicks Contest: quite possibly your best odds ever to win the all-new Kindle e-Reader.

Greetings, Muse-seekers. You’ll soon have a fantastic chance to win the all-new Kindle, courtesy of yours truly.

Mark your calendars now for this coming Monday, January 2nd, 2012. That’s when the 4 Chicks will be debuting their theme song video.

As you might recall from “We Need a Theme Song!”, I chose to employ classic 80’s sitcoms as inspiration for this daring Chick-venture. My little Muselettes have been singing, dancing and laughing their way across Orlando ever since. The results are sure to be entertaining.

To be eligible for the giveaway, you’ll first need to follow the blog, one of two easy ways:

  1. Subscribe to receive blog updates directly from 4chicksandamuse.com (Just click “Speak to Me, Muse!” on the top right); OR
  2. On Facebook, simply Like the 4 Chicks and a Muse page.

Can you name this sitcom? Then you're off to a strong start.

Then on January 2nd, you’ll be asked to identify and email the names of the sitcoms featured in the video. A random drawing will be taken from all correct emails. More details to follow. Meanwhile, subscribe or like today. Even if you don’t win the Kindle, you’ll sure to receive creative encouragement in 2012. I guarantee you’ll be inspired on some level, or my name’s not the Muse.

* TERMS AND CONDITIONS: Spouses, parents and progeny of the 4 Chicks are not eligible to snag the Kindle. However, all other 4 Chick and a Muse subscribers and Facebook fans are. So if you’re already officially following the Chicks, just stay tuned for Monday’s video.
