Book Giveaway!

Just in time for the holidays, I’d love to give away TWO personalized copies of my book, WRITING IRRESISTIBLE KIDLIT. I just got some new author copies in and they are getting restless sitting on my bookshelf. Instead of making you guys do a bunch of stuff like Tweet or Facebook or blog and provide a link in order to be eligible, I’ll just open this up to anybody who wants to enter (provided you live in the United States for the sake of shipping costs).

If you want to read an interview I recently did about the book with Lenore Appelhans over on the Apocalypsies blog, click here. To enter the contest, leave a comment below with the name you want me to personalize your book to, should you win. No need to also leave an email address as long as you enter it in the form (only I see these). The contest ends midnight, Tuesday December 18th and winners will be announced December 19th. Tell your friends and your writing group!

ETA: Just to clarify, I’m giving away two copies of the book to correspond with two entries by two different writers, not two copies of the book to one entry. I just want to avoid any confusion!
