You can still order one of these babies here.
With just one week left in July, summer is slogging its way to the final roundup. I say this mostly to keep the three voices that live in my head distracted long enough for me to finish the laundry. If I listen to them too much, they drag me into the petty squabbles that summer ennui has always sparked around here, and knowing that they're imaginary voices doesn't make it any easier to get them to share the remote.
Besides, there is still puh-LENTY to do to keep everyone happy or at least neutralized until school starts in four weeks, and I've got the power to completely transform the next month for you. What have I always said? That's right: I give and I give. Also, please hand me the Diet Coke. I've always said that, too.
The winner of the giveaway of my cute pal Lela's book is ... KASIA COOK! Miz Kasia, who made no secret of the fact that you were commenting SPECIFICALLY to win the giveaway, you need to email me with your mailing info so I can come to your house and sit in a tree and watch you sleep ... wait, that's the one voice in my head that thinks it's Edward Cullen.
Ignore that last part.
I need to know where to send this beautiful, autographed book. (At least I think it will be autographed. Now it will be for sure, because I will NOT tolerate Lela making me into a liar just because I promised something I wasn't sure I could deliver.) And congratulations! My favorite essay is on page 67, where Lela thanks her mom for giving her child a very special variety of Barbie.
Now, on to MORE giveaways! I know! Who am I??
My good friend Jeff Parkin produced this uber cool web series called "The Book of Jer3miah," which was picked up by Deseret Book last fall and turned into a DVD. I've seen the series; it's well written, awesomely filmed, and has a twist that I did NOT see coming, even though I knew well in advance of the denouement that the killer was everyone in "Murder on the Orient Express."
Oops. Retroactive spoiler alert.
This is a thriller that is entertaining for everyone, and received rave reviews in the New York Times and on Amazon. And I'm giving away not one but TWO copies of the DVD!
Just comment on this post, telling me one way you've kept from locking your kids in the basement with a freezer full of Popsicles and a promise of release on the first day of school, and this DVD could be yours!
Can't wait for a giveaway? You'll find "Jer3miah" right here.
Stay cool, mah peeps!
