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!
