$100 book basket up for grabs

$100 book basket up for grabs

Publicist: Losing Clementine follows a world-renowned artist during her last 30 days on earth.

Me: This is true.

Publicist: Wouldn’t it be cool if we celebrated the last 30 days before publication by asking people what they’d do during their last days?

Me: You just want to tell me your last meal, right?

Publicist: Of course not, but it would involve cheese.

Me: Calories aren’t really a concern at that point.

Publicist: (ignoring me) We should also give away a prize. A good prize.

Me: Not cheese.

Publicist: No, too perishable. We’ll give away a basket of books from HarperCollins worth $100. That’s good, right?

Me: Can I win?

Publicist: No.

Me: Are there rules?

Publicist: Yes.

    Is this an international contest?

    Stephanie, that’s a great question! The contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only. If you live in Montreal, you’re in luck. Paris, not so much.

    First off, I hope I win. Only because the look on my husband’s face when a huge box of books comes my way, to be added to my shameful stack of un-read books, would be Christmas card worthy.

    Second, I am SO excited to read Losing Clementine because I’ve been hearing about this book and I just got it in my hands today and I maybe squealed. Out loud. It scared the cats.

    Sara, you made my day! Thanks for the sweet words. I hope you find Clementine to be squeal-worthy!

    And yep, the prize Harper is putting up is awfully nice. That is one heck of a book basket up for grabs.
