Two weeks ago, I posted a contest on my blog to win a free, signed copy of my upcoming children’s book Sarah Gives Thanks.
The response was incredible! It’s amazing; all ya gotta say is “Win my book!” and people will stop by to say “Hi!” and “Gimmie a book!” That’s certainly what I would do; offer me a chance to win a free book and I’ll prove it.
To be entered in the contest all you had to do was to come up with a clever interview question for illustrator extraordinaire David Gardner. Then, because getting questions without answers isn’t all that interesting, I also asked you to answer the questions you provided.
A lot of great questions came in. (And, yes, a couple of wisenheimer ones came in, too.) After taking pains to narrow them down, I am pleased to report that my co-interviewers are:
Cathy Ballou Mealey
Now don’t fret if you don’t see yourself up there. As long as you asked and answered a question (no matter how wisenheimer-y) your name was put in the hat to win the book.
And now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for: The Big Winner!
To keep things good and fair, I brought in an unbiased third party to draw the winning card.
Isn’t he cute?
OK, let’s get started!
Congratulations, Madame! To collect your prize, please go up to the menu option “Write Me A Note” and give me your mailing address. As soon as the book comes out in September, I will send you a personalized copy.
Thanks to everyone who entered!
And for those of you who STILL want a free book, go to David Gardner’s Blog right now. He’s decided to hold the EXACT SAME CONTEST! Good Luck!

Yeah for the winner. I’ve been a bit MIA this summer, but shared a lame question on David Gardner’s blog. Good luck. A great review too!
Great to have you visiting again, Stacy!
And good luck with David’s contest!
Wow! I’m not sure I’ve ever won anything in a drawing before. Yay! I can’t wait to read the book, Mike—as a history person I’m all for any children’s book that tells good stories about historical people and events!
And special thanks to your handsome raffle-drawing assistant there!
Wonderful! And congrats again, Madame!
Keep your eyes peeled for a package in September!
Oh, and that little guy is handsome, isn’t he? 🙂
…..define ‘sober’….. 😉
That boy is high on nothing but marshmallow chicks.
I should try some of those.
Yipppeeee!!! I might not have won a book, but I’m top of your list of interviewers because I’m the one you like best!…Oh…Alphabetical? What do you mean alphabetical?…I’m the one you like best right?!
I’m going to hop on over to David’s blog now.
I suppose it all depends on that coffee invitation!
Oh, Vanessa, you know I think you’re awesome.
Yay for Madame weebles. Love her and her blog
As do I. As would anyone who visits her site.
Lucky Madame Weebles.
It could be “lucky LJ Clayton,” too. The giveaways haven’t ended yet. Hop on over the David’s blog and think up a question. Good luck, my friend!
OK. Waiting for your book to come out in paperback.
Well played Madame Weebles. Congratulations!
Whoo, I’m finally catching up on blogs after my house-move!
Love your judge for the drawing, those pictures made me smile 🙂
Hey, welcome back, Rebekah! How’d the move go? Are you settled in, yet?
And I am rather fond of that judge, I must say!
The move went . . . interesting. Let’s just say it decided to get HOT the day we actually moved everything to the house. It was miserable. We’re working on the settling in, still got a couple of minor remodeling projects we have to finish before we can really get everything unpacked.
Now, I think you’re just biased toward that judge ;).
Good luck (and try not to do too much at once)!
Congratulations to the lucky winner!
BTW, Mike, your interview is up and running. Please feel free to respond to any comments we might receive. 🙂
It’s wonderful, Susan, and I am so grateful for all you have done!
I’m happy to help in any way I can. I’ve even twittered it for you and it’s now on my FB page, too. 🙂
That’s great! Many thanks!
I did not see my name in the jumble of names being drawn. Are you sure I was in there? Did you double-check? Ah, well, being an interviewer is… well, what I do everyday. So I guess it makes sense that I made the list, right? Yippee! Hope your book promotion is going well.
Oh, Anne, head over to David’s blog and enter again! I’m rooting for you!
I think your assistant should win a book too!! 😀
He gets as many books as he wants.
I love Madame Weebles. Good for her, and good luck with your interview. Clever idea.
Woo hoo! I am looking forward to see how you use my cross dressing question!
I didn’t change a word of your question. It’s perfect as it is!
So fun! Congrats, Madame Weebles. With a gravatar name that cool, you deserve to win! 🙂
Omg! You chose my question!! Yay! Thanks Mike!
Yep. I’m going to post the interview next week. Keep your eyes peeled for it, Ms. Brain!
