Shrinking Violet Contest

There's a few reasons I'm doing this.

The first of which is because this book may already be going out of print! In order to support Danielle Joseph and her amazing book Shrinking Violet, I'm going to order a copy TWO lucky winners. My current copy is still getting thrown into the September Comment Contest (don't worry!).

Danielle herself is holding a contest for a $25 gift card if you help her get out the word and/or order her book. More information about that here.

To learn more about Shrinking Violet, read my review here.

The second reason I'm doing this is to celebrate my almost 400 followers! (399 at this second)

And, I've been wanting to do some sort of order contest.

Two winners will get a copy of Shrinking Violet ordered and sent to their humble abode.

So, onto the rules!

The Rules:
1. Open to anywhere Amazon ships to! (not sure what that includes...)
2. Please include your email address with your comment(s).
3. Contest ends Sunday, October 4th at 8 pm CST
4. How to get points:

+1 for commenting
+1 for commenting on my review of Shrinking Violet
+2 for following my blog (whether it's through google connect, email, or RSS)
+5 add my blog button to your blog's sidebar (Leave a link!)
+1 for every time you advertise this contest - You MUST leave a link!

  49. I was painfully shy in school, still am but not quite as horrible as back then, so I can relate as well.

    Would love to read this title.
