No, Simon doesn't come with the books. Sorry. :)
HarperPerennial has graciously agreed to let me host a giveaway of Simon Van Booy's fabulous books of short stories to promote the re-release of The Secret Lives of People in Love. I'm a serious Van Booy Fangirl, you see, so I asked what I could do to help promote him. This is not something you'll see me doing often at Bookfoolery as I'm limiting my drawings to only authors or books I already know I love. And I absolutely think Simon's writing is the bees' knees. You undoubtedly know that if you've hung around my blog.
So, what can you win? I'm offering up 4 copies of each of Simon's books, but you can only choose one:
The Secret Lives of People in Love
Love Begins in Winter
Who, What, When, Where, Why, How (aka, "The Rules") - Warning: You must follow all the rules or you will be struck by lightning, shoved into the mud and tossed out of the drawing!!! Okay, I'm kidding. You'll just be kicked in the shins and tossed out.
1. Choose. Which book would you like to win? You can only win one!! Tell me your choice and leave me your email. If you don't leave your email, I will reject your entry -- it won't even show up in the comment section. I moderate, so I have the power. Mwah-ha.
2. Think like a North American and be one. HarperPerennial will send the books directly and they prefer to ship within the U.S. or Canada. No P.O. Boxes. You must have a street address.
3. One person, one entry. There are no opportunities for extra entries in this drawing and you may only sign up once.
3 1/2. The drawing will be held on Sunday, March 7 unless I change my mind. It's a woman's prerogative, you know. This is not technically a rule. I just wanted #4 to stay fresh in your mind.
4. Swear on a stack of tomatoes that you will read this book - not sell it, not swap it until you've *read it*. A promise will do, if you're not into swearing.
I may be away from the computer for a few days, so don't fret if your comment doesn't show up. We've got some things to attend to and since I moderate, comments don't show up until I've approved them.
Congratulations, again, to Simon!!
