I’ll be selecting 50 lucky readers from those who enter and will ship the books to the library you nominated!!!
What’s in it for you? (Besides being a friend to your local library?)
1. All four books will have your name inside as the official donor! 2. You’ll receive a sweet special autographed surprise in the mail from me! 3. You and your winning library will be listed on my website.
Bonus: Take a picture of yourself, the new books and your local librarian, and I’ll feature you on my social media sites and website!
What better way to celebrate the cozy reading season ahead and share the series you love with others!
