After all the great comments I got on my Chicken Soup for the Soul: New Moms book giveaway post (that might be too many adjectives), I decided to draw TWO names, instead of just one! So, a few minutes ago, I put all of your names into my son’s new T-ball cap, and my husband pulled two of them out.
They are both wildly appropriate.
When Dan pulled out the very first name, I started laughing. It was Perry Perkins. Perry is a writer and publisher, and he is the very person who directed me to Chicken Soup for the Soul last year (he’s been published in their books many times.) He has some friends who are having their first baby, and I’m thrilled to be able to give this book to them.
The second name Dan pulled out was Beth Yancey. I also know Beth “in real life” – she is a writer, too, and is very involved in various women’s ministries. I know she will find the perfect person to give this book to!
Okay, here is the evidence, but be warned…it’s a terrible photo. Our camera has died, so we had to use Dan’s Blackberry and, well, it ain’t pretty. (By the way, part of my earnings for this book are going towards a nice new camera.)
I have also decided to send a copy of the book (at their request) to the Campaign for Life in America initiative.
MANY thanks to all of you who commented on my post, and to all of you who spend some of your precious time reading my words. It means so much to me.
