I have to interrupt our ongoing branding discussion (see my last two posts) to offer my readers an apology. The 15th of this month slipped by with nary a mention of my regular installation of The Grapevine--an author introduction and book giveaway that I launched this past July. Believe it or not, I had a post set to go, but unfortunately I programmed it to publish on the 25th of this month instead of the 15th. Oops. I must have been sleepy (or fat-fingered) when I typed that in. Any-hoo, I sincerely apologize. The following is a quick summary of what you were supposed to read on the 15th.
Since it is the holiday season and everyone is busy with parties, baking, gift-wrapping, get-togethers, and much-needed visits to both the chiropractor and family counselor, I'm not going to introduce you to a new author this month. Instead of asking an author friend or acquaintance to answer interview questions and send out one more gift package, I'm going to do it myself. I know a lot of you already have my books, but I do think they'd make a good Christmas present. :)
So, here's the deal. If 10 people leave a comment for a free book, I'll give one book away (reader's choice). If 20 people leave a comment, I'll give two books away (to the same person). If 30 people leave a comment, I'll give away my entire collection to someone. Signed, of course, with bookmarks and a Christmas card to top it all off. Since I'd like to get this package to you by Christmas, I'm going to have to make this one short. You have until Friday at noon to comment, then I'll announce the winner and send out the package on Friday afternoon (Saturday at the latest). You should have the books by early next week. Sound good? Leave a comment!
