Help Write Now Auction begins today-- and a giveaway

Don't forget to visit the Help Write Now auction page, a benefit for Southern Storm relief.

...and because it's my birthday month and my blogiversary month (one year on May 24th) I am giving away a book:

Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz

I'm not the kind of person who can stay up all night to read a book anymore, because when my 3 year old wakes up at 6AM, I have to be ready no matter what-- but still I stayed up LATE (for me, you would probably laugh) to read this book.

Here's what I loved about it.
  • The dialogue was so nuanced, I did not notice it as "dialogue". And these people are quoting Camus!
  • Her writing is deft.  Simply skillful.
  •  Relationships. Whether family or other, man does she nail relationships. They are difficult, troubled, atypical, funny, honest, beautiful and complicated.

 I want to GIVE AWAY my (gently used) copy of Invincible Summer.

Open internationally.

Leave a comment with your name and an email address in this post!

If you want to promote through a tweet, post, or sidebar- great. You can earn an additional entry for each of those (just leave evidence in the comments).

Closes in one week on May 11th at midnight.
