I'm happy to announce that I just finished the first draft of my novel, which is such an accomplishment for me! To celebrate, I'm having another contest! This contest is available internationally provided you live in one of the many countries The Book Depository ships to. Not sure if your country is included? Please check here before entering.
Now on to the fun stuff! This contest is similar to the last one I had, but instead of just offering one book to choose from, I'm offering two. Since I blog about reading and writing, I am offering both fiction and non-fiction writing books as prizes. It doesn't matter if you're a writer and would prefer the reader's package, I'm just offering the writing books up for those that would enjoy them. On my last contest, most people picked the reader's package, but the person that won chose the writing book, so you never know. :)
The Reader's Prizes:
Sea by Heidi R. Kling, and Shade by Jeri-Smith Ready. Shade is one of my favorite books so far this year. Sea is on my TBR list, and I've heard marvelous things about it.
The Writer's Prizes:
The Forest for the Trees by Betsy Lerner and Writing Great Books for Young Adults by Regina Brooks. The Forest for the Trees isn't so much a writing instruction book, I guess I'd consider it more of an advice book? Writing Great Books for Young Adults features a lot of the stuff you'd find in a typical writing instruction book, but skewed towards a YA audience.
To enter, please fill out the form below. The only requirements are that you live in one of the countries The Book Depository ships to, you are at least thirteen years old, and that you are a follower of my blog. I do not require that you tweet (if you do so, please mention @tarawriter), blog, or offer up your first child to me to win the contest, but doing so will garner you extra entries. Well, you can keep your first child, but I appreciate the blogs and tweets. This contest will close on June 21st, and winners will be announced on June 22nd.
Good luck and thanks for entering!
EDIT: Sorry, I didn't notice the form cut off! I have edited the width of the form for any new entries, and will edit the entries in my spreadsheet for those of you that already entered.
