Five Magic Bookmarks -- A Giveaway

Today's the day!  Five Magic Spindles gets officially released today!  Yes, I'm quite giddy.  Again.  I've gotten giddy many times during this long, fun experience, starting the day I found out "The Man on the Buckskin Horse" won the contest.  But today, at last, I can hold a book with my name on the cover in my own hands.  This is dream-like and glorious.

And I want to share the joy.  So I've created five bookmarks, one for each of these really fun Sleeping Beauty retellings.  Five of YOU will each win one.  Does that make you a bit giddy too?  Here they are, paired with the title page of the appropriate story that inspired them:

This giveaway runs through Friday, July 29.  I will draw five winners on Saturday, July 30, and post the names of the winners that day, as well a notify them by email.

I can only send these to US addresses because of shipping being so expensive these days. Of course, if you live outside the US, but have a friend who lives in the US that is willing to have it shipped to them for you, that's fine.  But I can't send them internationally.

PLEASE make sure your information for the giveaway widget includes your current email address so that if you win a prize, you'll get the email informing you that you won! If you don't reply to my email within one week, I will choose another winner and award your prize to them instead.

The first way to enter, as you see, asks you to leave a comment telling me your top two prize choices. I do my best to match winners with their choice of prizes, but that doesn't always work out.  I will do my best.  You can leave that comment right in the widget this time.

So enter via this widget:

    1. Thanks! I know you understand the joy of holding in your own hands a real book that you wrote (or wrote part of, in my case). It's still kind of mind-blowing to know that yes, this dream came true.

  2. I must have missed that your story won! Congratulations!! That is so cool!!! :D

  3. My first choice would be the horse and my second would be, I think, the dragon.

  4. Many congratulations on this special day! What a lovely bookmarks you made (pity I don't live in the US in this case...)

    1. Thank you, Birdie! And yes, I wish international shipping hadn't gone up so much suddenly. However, part of the giveaway I have planned for the end of the Jane Eyre read-along WILL be open internationally, and it also involves bookmarks, so stay tuned for that one!

    2. I'm looking forward to it!
