Working in the education system and meeting so many dedicated librarians as an author has made me aware of their struggles. Today's economy may be bringing readers to their public libraries in search of an affordable alternative to purchasing books to read, but the libraries lack the resources to purchase a lot of new books to offer them. So I thought why not have a contest that not only benefits lucky readers, but also their favorite public library.
1. You can leave a message in the comment box below. Please be sure you leave your email, so I can contact the lucky winner, and the name, town, and state (add your country if outside of the US) of your favorite library.
Example: email@example.com My favorite public library is Janet Carlson Calvert Library Franklin, CT
*Please do not include your mailing information or any other personal info that you do not want published on this blog.
2. If you do not want your email shown you may email me directly with your email and library of your choice. Please put Love Your Library (or LYL) in the subject box.
Once a winner is randomly determined I will contact you by email for your mailing address. Your personal information will at no time be sold or passed on to any one else, and disposed of after the end of the contest. Winners will be notified by email and announced here, on my writing blog, my website, and on Twitter.
Winner will receive a signed copy of The Truth Lies in the Dark and their favorite public library will receive an additional copy, donated in the winners name. This is a great opportunity to win yourself a new book and help out your public library. Each person can only enter once, but there is no limit on how many times a library is entered. So spread the word in your community and increase the chances that your library will win!
Winners will announced on December 15th, 2009.
Thanks for entering and GOOD LUCK!
