Testimonial from a grateful reader
I read your article about winning competitions in the Star some time back. It featured your book “Congratulations You Have Won” which I got my husband to hunt down and buy. He said he couldn’t locate it. As it turns out to be, he had in fact found it and was keeping as a Christmas present for me. Needless to say, it is indeed one of the BEST Christmas present I’ve ever had.
Once I read it, I was so relieved to discover that what I was doing (entering competitions at that time) was a pastime that many fervently indulged in. It introduced me to the words comping and compers. It motivated me to know that what I was doing in fact could contribute to the income of my family. Never in my wildest dream did I expect so many delightful surprises to come through my mailbag. Needless to say I was inspired to go full steam into comping since that day.
Thanks to you I have won countless contests since then. Amongst them are three grand prizes. All these wouldn’t be made possible if I stuck to my nine to five job waiting for my measly salary. My family wouldn’t be able to enjoy such luxurious treats every now and then. Life would simply be a sheer struggle…. also boring,monotonous and meaningless.
You said in your parting note that “if you have never won anything at all, to secure at least a consolation prize in any contest”. Well in my case, you have certainly helped me get more than that! For that I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
