The Giveaway draw for a free copy of Leap at Goodreads is now completed. An astonishing 2065 (two thousand and sixty-five!) people entered the draw, and three personally signed copies will soon be on their way to the winners–just as soon as I can get down to a post office, where I’ll seal the envelopes and lick the stamps myself.
Thank you so much to each and every one of you for taking the time to express interest in my book. It’s little things like clicking “Enter to win” on a giveaway that add up to let authors know that the time we spend scrawling notes, talking out loud, drawing plot diagrams and ripping them up, drafting and revising and revising again, finally hitting our stride, fingers tapping the keys, drinking tea, breaking dates, missing sleep, forgetting to water the plants, living on air–that finally, all of that effort and even sacrifice sometimes amounts to a finished book that reaches a receptive audience. This makes it all worthwhile. I mean that.
To the 2062 people who didn’t win a copy of Leap, I really hope you’ll find a way to beg, borrow, or steal (okay, maybe not steal) a copy to read. If that’s not possible, watch my YouTube trailer a few times, using your visual literacy skills to read into the images. That’ll give you the gist of it. In the meantime, the thought of you wonderful, curious book-loving people is inspiring me to keep working on my next books. Keep in touch!
