For those of you who don't know what an ARC is, it's an advance reader's copy, or what's sometimes called a bound galley. A few months ago I was organizing the big built-in bookcase up in my studio, and I realized that I have about ten Pay It Forward ARCs. I guess I thought I should hang onto them. That they'd be collector's items someday. (They are eleven years old and were never meant to be sold--the publisher sends them out to reviewers and bookstores).
I decided that at least a few of them belong in the hands of my readers. And I still feel the same way now.
All you have to do is leave a coment below. That's it. Make sure I have your email address, so I can contact you if you win. But the address won't show publicly, and I don't use it for any other purpose but getting your prize to you.
I've given away two of these so far. If you commented for one of the ealier ones, please comment again. At one point I was holding names over from one drawing to the next. But now I'd be too afraid of missing somebody, or drawing the name of someone who wanted it more months ago than they do now.
I'll be taking entries until the end of the month. Good luck!
First of all, my apologies for being a couple of days late with this drawing. I got caught up in my writing and just plain forgot until I was on my way out the door this morning.
But...better late than never.
The name that came out of the hat (my 89-year-old retired mother likes to reach in and draw them now) is...Susie Hammer Ball.
Susie is a relatively new Facebook friend of mine, and she and her husband live in the tiny town of Cambria with me. But I've never met them, except on Facebook. Maybe the luck of the draw will remedy that.
Thanks to all who put your name in the hat. I'm holding your slips of paper over to the new drawing (give me time to finish this novel, and then I promise another one), so you have more chances to win.
