Today is the day! Exactly one year ago today, I received my first publishing contract. Can you believe it's only been one year?
To add to the fun, it's my birthday in two weeks. October 6.
So, to celebrate, I'm giving away a signed copy of my book.
I always share my birthdays. I take my kids to the store on my birthday and let them pick out a toy. It's not uncommon for us to buy a gift for all of our kids when there's a birthday at our house.
We don't always share everyone's birthday, but they never know when we will. It keeps it fun.
I always share mine, though. That's my rule.
So this year, I'm sharing my birthday with you.
Here's how you enter the book giveaway contest. Don't laugh, it's another tradition that I enjoyed for a while.
"Heavy heavy hang over thy poor head,
What do you wish with a bump on your head?"
Every birthday for a lot of years, the birthday person would have to make a wish for everyone who gave them a present. The gift giver would hold the present over the head of the birthday person and say those words. At the end, the giver taps the present on the birthday person's head.
For a while there, my kids thought they were saying, "Heavy heavy hang over diaper head." I still laugh about that.
We haven't played "Heavy heavy" for a while.
If you want a book, you have to play.
***If you want to win a book, leave a comment with a wish in it. You can wish for anything.
***If you add yourself as a follower, or if you already are one, you get a second entry.
Hmm, I'm seriously considering adding something to the package besides a book. After all, it's my birthday and I love sharing it. Maybe I'll make that part a surprise. I love surprises.
I'm not even going to tell you how old I'll be. If you still think I'm in my twenties, who am I to burst your bubble? Ha ha ha...
The contest will end on Saturday, October 17 2009
