My Mom, the Author!

I'm so proud of my mom!  Simply bursting at the seams, proud!!!  She's worked so hard for the past two years getting her book written, accepted for publication, edited, illustrated..... and all that hard work has finally paid off!  Her book, Revenge of the Dorkoids: the Secret Club Begins has hit Amazon!  It's about three 6th grade boys who are the smartest in their class, and how they beat the bullies, without stooping to the bullies level!  It also uses those sesquipedalian/polysyllabic (ie: big) words you're always hoping your kids will learn, as a secret language!  How fun is that?  Did you know English could be a secret language?

It's actually available for order at Barns & Noble and Borders, too.  But it's not in store yet... she's too new an author.  Do you have any idea how tough it is to get into the book stores?!?  There's a lot of competition for that.  So, to help my mom out, I'm offering a free, autographed, copy of her book to one of my readers!

There are 4 ways to earn a chance to win the book, so you can have up to 4 entries into the drawing:
  1. Leave a comment on my blog here.
  2. Become a follower of my blog.  (If you're already a follower, leave me a note telling me.)
  3. Post a link on your blog to my blog, specifically mentioning the book. (Leave me a note in the comments with the link to your post.)
  4. Post a link on your blog to the Amazon listing for Mom's book. (Leave me a note in the comments with the link to your post.)
Be sure to make your postings and comments by 11.59pm Mountain, Monday 25 October!  I'll draw the name on Tuesday and post the winner then.
