Weekend of Awesome inspired Giveaway

SO, weekend of awesome was, as you may have heard, indeed awesome.

To share the love we are going to give away prizes inspired by the weekend.

       PRIZES!     PRIZES!!     PRIZES!!!

One cool part of the weekend was that Erinn asked us all to bring our favorite writing resource and have a "trade". 

The Elements of Style, a pocket Thesaurus, On Writing, Bird by Bird, Fill-in-the-blank-Plotting, and two great YA specific books were a part of the mix. 

To celebrate the weekend, I am giving away ONE of those books:

Writing Great Books for Young Adults: Everything You Need to Know, from Crafting the Idea to Landing a Publishing Deal

What do you need to do to enter? Just post a comment here. You can get extra points for tweeting, posting, etc-- but it is not necessary.

Also, if you already have this book I would be happy to send you one of the others instead. 

Open in the US only (sorry!). 

My next giveaway (featuring a Brendan Halpin book) will be open internationally. 

Be sure to check out Alicia, Erinn, and Quita and Pam for giveaways, too!

I will pick the winner next weekend- let's say the cut off is Saturday the 18th of June at midnight.
