Thank you so much, everyone who took a look at my new website and those of you who shared it with your friends! I’m so excited about it. This Friday also happens to be my birthday, so in the spirit of celebration, I am hosting a Book Giveaway!
This is the first giveaway that I’ve attempted, and I’m thrilled to have some pretty awesome prizes.
So here’s what I’m giving away:
- A $25 gift card to my favorite independent bookstore, Powell’s Books. The gift card can be used online, so don’t worry if you don’t live in Portland.
- One signed copy of Hooked: Write Fiction that Grabs Readers at Page One and Never Lets Them Go by renowned author and writing coach, Les Edgerton. Hooked has forever changed the way I think about plot structure and story openings. You will learn not only how to write a killer opening, but how to use that opening to set yourself up with a great plot. You can read my review here. This is an absolute must-read for authors!
- One signed copy of national bestseller MWF Seeking BFF: My Yearlong Search for a New Best Friend by Rachel Bertsche. We all remember our high school best friend, the girl or guy we spent all day in school with and then talked to on the phone for hours when we went home. This hilarious memoir recounts Rachel’s adventures in searching for that type of friend. She tried speed-friending, hiring a friend matchmaker, renting a friend, taking classes, and more strategies. This book will make you laugh and help you realize what it takes to be a good friend—or just a good person, in fact. You can read my review here.
