(Yes, you can win a book today. Keep reading.)
Oh, I am tired. Bone deep, heavy-eyed, sleep like the dead TIRED. It was a long and crazy three days, but it was SO fun. I'll be doing a full report of the book launch fun tomorrow, but for today, I wanted to tell you about this week's giveaways.
The first week I did a beach themed giveaway. Have you seen the cover of my book? It's over there *points right* in the sidebar. The beach theme should make total sense to you.
The second week, I focused on fashion. Have you read the book and met Ashley Barrett? That theme should also make total sense to you, too.
This week, it's all about reading. Um, because I wrote a book. And you read a book, get it?
So OF COURSE I'm giving away another book! Yay! This is the next to last book giveaway, so get it while it's hot! (Um, and I really hope this book stays hot for a while.)
To win the book, you need to stand on your head and find a way to play La Cucaracha on your belly with spoons (still standing on your head) and then video tape it and upload it to YouTube. Bonus points for doing the Mexican Hat dance. Naked.
Yeah, I just made that last part up.
Oh, fine. I made the whole thing up. Here's what you really need to do to win a book:
Leave a comment.
Yeah, that's it.
Want to win some other stuff? Like, oh, say . . .
This amazing quote that's done by the talented and beautiful Nancy Ostergar, my faux mother-in-law, who has spent many, many hours studying with master calligraphers? She sent me one a while back and I love it. LOVE IT. So I begged her to do one for the giveaway. It will look fabulous framed in your house.
"She is too fond of books and it has addled her brain." ~Louisa May Alcott (My favorite author from childhood, btw.)
Next up, NAMING RIGHTS. Yep, that's right. You can name a character in my next manuscript. If you've read The List, you've met Sister Powers, the institute teacher. She was named by none other than DeNae from My Real Life Was Backordered who won a similar contest I did many moons ago. Think of the possibilities . . . you could name a character after your daughter or a parent or a friend and then give them the book as a gift. Even if you have to say, "Sorry that the rest of the book blew chunks, but your name is totally in it." You should give it to them for Christmas and then whoever it is will feel all sad that once again, their gift to you in inferior. (Although this is totally not what Christmas is about, imagine your satisfaction when that happens.) Uh, I'm getting off track here. My point is, you get to name a character in my next manuscript which begins on April 1. Good luck!
The last thing you can win is my three year old! Yay! He is connected to reading because . . . um, wait. Oh, because you totally will have to read him at least five stories at night. Every night.
Hm. You know, when he's not wreaking havoc at church, he's pretty all right. So, never mind. He's no longer up for grabs.
But the book, the naming rights, and the calligraphy quotes still are, so I'm about to tell you what to do to win. If you've already done these things, then you're already entered and you don't have to do it again. (Except for one of them).
