Buy LOVE SAVES THE DAY the First Week it Goes on Sale (or pre-order it) and Win a Visit From Me!
My new book, LOVE SAVES THE DAY, goes on sale January 15th! Buy it as soon as it goes on sale and enter to win an in-person visit from me, a portrait of your cat (or dog, or horse, etc.) by the same artist who painted Homer's portrait, autographed books, and more!
Let's call it the "Get LOVE SAVES THE DAY Out the Door With a Bang!" Contest. ;-) Here's what I'm offering:
A visit from me! I'll come to your hometown to lead a book club discussion and/or read from the book (and answer all your questions!) at the venue of your choosing--your local library, your favorite bookstore or coffee shop, your favorite animal shelter, or even your living room.
Plus, a $500 donation to the animal-related charity of your choice!
A portrait of your own cat, dog, horse, parrot, or any animal you call friend, by Sue Hains, the incredibly talented animal portrait artist who did this gorgeous portrait of Homer that makes me tear up every time I look at it:
(She can work from photos, so you don't have to worry about traveling to her! :-) )
Autographed copies of LOVE SAVES THE DAY and Homer's Odyssey, plus one of the original photos of Homer (also autographed!) used to create the artwork for Homer's Odyssey.
HOW TO ENTER:
The contest will close at 12:01am PST on Monday, January 21, 2013.
Thanks for entering, guys! I look forward to meeting one of you in person soon! :-D
