Celebration GiveawayFebruary 12, 2010

To honor the fact that How to Knit a Love Song will be in TARGET (*happy dance* happy dance*) I'm going to give away a copy of the Random House Australia version of the book, Eliza's Gift.

BECAUSE I GOT A STACK OF 'EM, PEOPLE! This has been a damn fine week.

Eg

All you have to do to be entered is make sure you're on my mailing list (don't worry, I haven't even sent out one announcement yet -- you haven't missed anything) -- sign up is to the right up there, or you can click here.

(There are only a few differences between the two books -- like spellings of words, for example. Color/colour, fiber/fibre. It might be best if a Candian wins, since they speak the language. Heh.*)

I'll draw a random winner on Sunday! Good luck!   

* Edited to add: HA! Pam TOTALLY gets points for this comnment:
Being Canadian I would endeavour to think that my humble behaviour might bring favour from my southern neighbour! It would be an honour if an author of your calibre, candour and demeanour would consider honouring me with a flavourful book full of fibre, fun and humour. Don’t let my ramblings colour your opinion...but somewhere deep inside you know that at least one copy needs to go to someone who’ll savour the flavours of your literary style! :) Pam

You have no idea how excited I am! My fingers and toes are crossed that I snag myself a copy! :)

YOU ARE GOING TO BE IN TARGET! Okay, sorry to scream but, dude, it's TARGET. I am so happy for you! I love Target! I love you more!

Ooh! Me! I'm Canadian! (Kind of!)

xoxoxoxo

I want it! Also: so excited that you are coming to LA! Come visit me if you need an animal fix.

I double-checked anyway, even though I know I'm on it already :) If I don't win, my happy fingers will do a Kindle dance of joy on March 1st!

Woohoo! I hope you get to send one all the way to Sweeeeeden!

What a great stack of books! Do you just love looking at it? :)

I was already subscribed, but thank you for the two extra kisses.

Dutch people write the u in colour too! Because we have been indoctrinated to think that British English is the One True Way :-). But I am taking myself out of this contest, since I've already ordered the book, and I want to be a Paying Customer. Yay for paying customers. Yay for Target. Yay for you :-)

Pam, that comment was tonnes of fun.

Rachael,
Would love to get an Australian version as I prefer the mother tongue:-)
ps are you coming to Phoenix for this book jaunt?

Pam is a winner in my book (not that I have a book, mind you). Great contest. You're so generous and I'm SO excited for you about Target!

Very, very cool!

It's just too exciting! Are you pinching yourself? I'll Kindle it as soon as it comes out as well as having a copy on pre-order.

I so totally love your cover! Where can I get a poster sized one? I want to hang it in MY HOTEL. (In Hanford, across from Huggie's. BFD) But it's my hotel. Which is floored with old classroom flooring from the old Stratford school. You two totally have to come see it. I'll cook. You can bring the dogs. It's halfway, sort of, to SLO. If you make a left at Harris Ranch.

I have been following your blog for sometime. Can't wait for your book. If you have any pull, I would love to have it available for my Kindle!!!

Oh my gosh! Pam needs your book. So do I but I've been signed up for quite a while. I was just in the Target book section yesterday and thought about seeing your book there in a month. I'm so happy for you!

Target? Score! That's a big deal, dude. I'm delighted for you!

Cool! I haven´t been in Target (never been in the US actually) - but I do realise it's a big deal. So congratulations!

Can't wait to see it! I'm so happy for you!

I just signed up for your mailing list ~ I'd be thrilled to win a copy!

Let's hope lady luck's smiling at me since it's Lunar New Year!

oh me me me! fingers crossed that i win a copy with "correct" spelling. :)

Oi! What about us Brits then? Does it make me bi-lingual if I understand what color a fiber is?
Joking! ANyhoo, as I sit in the sun of Southern Spain, competing in the Ravelympics and yet able to watch 6 nations rugby, I am a very happy bunny. I also have H2KALS on preorder so don't panic if postage wouldn't make it across the pond...

Or what about an Australian?

Congratulations!

It seems a bit ridiculous to post one back across the Pacific, so I was having a hunt around on google for a supplier in Australia when I found this:

http://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Record/4727767?max=1&offset=1&lookfor=isn:9781741669183

Yup, it's already at the National Library in Australia. Sadly, I do not live in Canberra, or I would go and take a photo of it for you.

Best Comment Ever.

Well done, Pam.

What language do you think we speak in NZ? We might spell it the way Australians do but we don't speak it that way...Yes some of us do speak Maori...

It is all very exciting!!

You're going to be in Target!! Good goddess, do you have any idea how rare it is to get a book into Target?! And as a first-time author. It's incredible! Congratulations, missy!
