International Book-Giving Day Giveaway


Yup!  I'm giving away six books in honor of International Book-Giving Day, which is February 14.  So from now through February 13, you can enter to win one of these books, using the widget below.  I'll pick six winners on February 14 and give away these six books!

+ F. Scott Fitzgerald On Writing edited by Larry W. Phillips.  A collection of things Fitzgerald wrote in letters, articles, and his books that involve the writing process.  I reviewed it here.

+ Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh.  A contemplation of what it means to be creative and a woman.  This book touches me deeply and also inspires me.

+ Aspects of the Novel by E. M. Forster.  This is a guide for writers, and I haven't read it yet, but I hear it's awesome.  I have a copy on my own TBR shelf right now.

+ Mugging the Muse: Writing Fiction for Love AND Money by Holly Lisle.  I have learned more about writing from Holly Lisle's classes than I have from all the other books, classes, and editorial advice I've encountered.  This book is a collection of essays, workshops, quizzes, and how-to articles.

+ Flashes of Splashes by Elizabeth McCleary.  A collection of water-themed flash fiction.  I reviewed it here.

+ The Trials of Sherlock Holmes by James Moffett.  A collection of new Sherlock Holmes stories.  I reviewed it here.

All of these books are gently used.  The copies shown above are the actual copies I am giving away.  The Rafflecopter widget will choose one winner for each of these books on February 14, and I will then alert the winners via the email address they have provided to this widget, so be sure to use an email address you check regularly.  If I don't hear back from a winner within one week, I will disqualify them and choose a new winner.

This giveaway is open world-wide.  No purchase necessary, void where prohibited, and all that jazz.  I do my best to match winners with a prize they will enjoy, but I can't always make that work with the winners the widget picks, just so you know.
