THE WINNER IS... and Book Giveaway!

Hi folks-
I have been delayed in announcing the winner of my giveaway, inspired by weekend of awesome, for the book: Writing Great Books for Young Adults.

I've had strep throat (ugh), but don't worry- I'll be sending the winner a new copy, so you won't catch my cooties. 

Drum roll please... and the winner is:


So, CONGRATS KT- shoot an email to insectwriter(at)gmail(dot)com and I will send you the book!!!

Then enter my contest to win Brendan Halpin's The Half-Life of Planets!


As a follow-up to Weekend of Awesome I wanted to give away another book! 

One of the coolest parts of Weekend of Awesome was getting a chance to skype with the charming Brendan Halpin, the prolific author of :

Losing my Faculties: A teacher's story, 
Forever Changes, 
Dear Catastrophe Waitress, 
It takes a Worried Man, 
The Half Life of Planets (with Emily Franklin), 
I Can See Clearly Now, 
How Ya Like Me Now, and 
Long Way Back

Feeling like you're not producing enough now? I sure am. 

I am currently reading The Half-Life of Planets, and would like to share this lovely book with one of YOU. This contest is open internationally. 

All you need to do is post a comment here, and you'll be entered to win the contest.
