Win a Book!

Hi folks! Our Library Challenge continues through the rest of the week. Yesterday, we raised nearly $40 for the Hopkinton Town Library.

Today I'm upping the ante.


You don't have to participate in the contest to continue the library challenge. I'll give $1 per commenter per day ($2 if you're a follower; you can sign up at the right). However, in addition, I'll pledge three signed copies of my new book, Minder, to the libraries of your choice.

Comment below by midnight (EDT) Thursday (3/25) if you want to give your local library a chance to receive a copy.

Include two things in your comment:

1) A MEMORABLE inscription suggestion. Funny, sweet, awe-inspiring--whatever blows your skirt up.

2) Contact info for the library. If you have a link--great! If not, just give me the name of the town and state (this offer's good only for the US and Canada, since international shipping gets pricey). If you want to donate it to a school library, include the school name, too.

I'll pick the three inscriptions I like best and announce the winners on Friday morning. Feel free to enter multiple times. I'll send the copies when the book comes out in June.

If you're new to the blog, you might not know that Minder is a YA fantasy, so here's the elevator pitch:

Sixteen-year-old Maddie Dunn can hear other people's thoughts, but her own can kill. And when her boyfriend is abducted, she'll do whatever it takes to get him back.

Or, as a friend put it last fall:

Teenage mutants with superpowers--in love.

Feel free to point out your favorite inscription in the comments section. It's all good.

Great Library Challenge details: as I wrote Monday, from now until midnight Friday, I'll donate $1 to my local library for each comment you folks make (1 per person, per day), and double it for people listed as followers (sign up by clicking "follow" at the top or on the right). Say whatever you want. "I love libraries" is fine. The donation will go to the Hopkinton NH Town Library, and I've capped the gift at $150. Click here to see the list of participating bloggers. A few quick comments can help a lot of libraries.

I love libraries! I start taking my kids from the time they are babies and we go almost every weekend!

I am really bad at things like this b/c I feel like I will just end up being witty after the fact. Which inspires my inscription.

Always think just a little bit before you act, but not enough so that you talk yourself straight into inaction.

Since London is out, I'd vote for Bloomfield, NJ public library.

I think this was a great idea! Thanks for participating although you don't need to enter me in your special contest. The libraries and literacy groups who benefit from the original challenge will appreciate the extra funding.
