My book comes out three weeks from today. Today I’m going to be giving away TEN rare and very limited edition, signed BLADs.
What the what?
A BLAD is a booklet thingy. It stands for “book layout and design” which publishers use to help sell the book to bookstores and stuff. It has a few sample snippets from the book. It has only 19 pages while the book has 224 pages. So it is like a super secret sneak preview of the book. An appetizer. Plus, it will be signed. With a pen. (By me. Not by someone famous or anything. You probably can’t eBay it for much.) It will also be shipped directly to you from me. So my fingerprints and DNA will also be included. You know, if you are creepy like that.
The first chapter in the book is Before & After Kids. So that brings me to the theme of the giveaway.
You know what was in my couch before I had kids?
I don’t remember. (This post is riveting so far, isn’t it?)
But you know what is under my couch cushions now?
A bowl worth of assorted cereal, four lego pieces, two cars, one pretzel, one book, one puzzle piece, a red Candyland guy, an infant sock and a dime.
I kept the dime.
To be eligible to win a signed, very limited preview booklet BLAD all you have to do is lift up your couch cushions and leave a comment, telling me what you found under there. You don’t even have to clean it out. I don’t care. I won’t judge.
(I’ll ship anywhere in the world. And you don’t have to be a parent of young kids. Or a parent at all. And if you have nothing at all under your cushions that is totally okay. And if you don’t have a couch you can just tell me why you don’t have a couch. Maybe you live on a boat? In a wagon as part of a gypsy caravan? In a yurt? It’s all good, people. Just leave a comment. One comment per person.)
Winners will be picked at random using random # generator on Thursday the 7th and notified by email and posted here.
