Ok people, it's time for a contest.
I always look at other people's blogs having contests and I think "I want to have a contest". But normally those people are giving something away that has been provided by a sponsor, and I don't have a sponsor.
ANYONE WANT TO SPONSOR ME?
That's an open invitation by the way. Think it over.
No but seriously, back to the task at hand. I have something to give away. Something I bought myself, paid shipping for myself, and will ship to the winner myself. Because I'm a really good person and love to give*.
Ready for it?
My book! (also known as "the book I'm in with a bunch of other writers", not technically my book): Monday Coffee and Other Stories of Mothering Children with Special Needs.
You see I was excited to get my copy of the book from the publisher but it was taking a while because apparently USPS and Canada Post don't play nice. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and order a copy from Amazon. Well apparently Amazon was a little flaky when the book was first available, so even though it said it was available, it wasn't. So I waited, and waited, and waited.
Eventually my copy of the book came from the publisher but did not come from Amazon, so I thought "Huh, I guess when the Amazon copy comes I'll give it away for Christmas". But guess what - it never came in time for Christmas either. Now, it's finally here, and yes I could still give it away to a friend or family member, but instead, I want to give it to YOU!
So here's what you need to do to win. One simple thing: leave a comment telling me why you'd like to read a book written by special needs moms. Are you one? Do you know one? Do you have special needs yourself and want to understand your mom better? Do you just like free stuff? Whatever the reason, I'd love to hear it.
Winner will be picked at random and I'll announce the winner back here in a week. Start typing in the comments….now! Good luck!
*Really good person: questionable. Love to give: absolutely!
