Book Lovers Giveaway!

Alright my cheeky monkeys, it’s time for a giveaway!

I’ve been in Brainstorm Land with the latest WIP for the past few days (Brainstorm Land is quite like the jungle, except instead of poisonous spiders and monkeys, there are copious amounts of index cards strewn about. Okay, and some monkeys).

BUT, I have managed to make some time to get claying around. If you know me fairly well, you’ll know I have a tendency to make stuff, and often like to give it away. If you’re here, I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that you’re a book lover – what better way to celebrate the official blog launch than with some book lover pendants?

BOOKS YOU SAY?! *audience perks up*

YES, BOOKS!

Here are the goods up for grabs:

Three tiny book pendants for lucky winners - one is iridescent blue, one is ancient-looking and red w/ a bookmark and one is a dragon-inspired gem encrusted wonky book that looks like it holds spells!

Which is your FAVE?

To WIN, all you have to do is leave a comment and tell me what AUTHOR or FICTIONAL CHARACTER you would have over for dinner!

You don’t need to be a follower for this contest, but I am a brand new baby blog so I would appreciate it if you did! You can also gain an extra entry if you tweet the contest, just tell me in your comment!

Open internationally until March 31st, with the winners announced on April Fools Day.

Annnd….. GO!

    The little book pendants are so cute!! I love the red one. Hmm… What author would I want to have over for dinner? That’s a tough one. My favorite author is O. Henry but he’s already dead. Does that still count? I want to ask him if he really was an embezzler or if he just happened to be at the wrong place, at the wrong time. Not that he’d tell me, but I’m curious. πŸ˜€

    I would like to have Herman Hesse’s Siddartha over for dinner. We would eat steaming bowls of basmati rice, aromatic with saffron and cardamom. Afterwards we would take sips of peppermint tea. There probably wouldn’t be much talking, but we would sit with really good posture and bask in the radiance found in quiet contemplation.

    Those pendants are AWESOME! Love em.

    Hmm, I imagine Dumbledore would be quite an interesting dinner companion. The conversation would certainly never get dull! πŸ™‚

    Congrats on the new blog! I love the red one! I’d have C.S. Lewis over, for sure, because meeting the author is like meeting all the characters at once, isn’t it? πŸ˜€

    Hi! I just tweeted about the contest on twitter, I’m @Bookcharmer.

    Who would I have to dinner? Well, Louis the Trumpeter Swan. I want to hear about his stay at the Ritz Carlton in Boston. We will discuss whether watercress sandwiches should be served with mayonnaise.

    Then, we might go hear some jazz.

    I would have you over because I miss you!

    Or, if that’s too much sucking up, πŸ˜‰ I’d invite Bloody Jack Faber, since she’s the most inspiring and pip-piping little lady I’ve come across in literature recently, and I’d love to see how she reacts to all this modern day technology.

    Oooh! LOVE the blue one. Or the red one.

    I would have Sherlock Holmes over for dinner. I’m fascinated with him right now. I’ve almost made my way through all of his adventures.

    Love these pendants! Congrats on your new blog πŸ™‚

    Though my answer changes hourly, for dinner I’d love to have Roald Dahl and/or Willy Wonka or the BFG.

    My 6 year old tells me he’d ask Geronimo Stilton….

    What a fun contest! I’m glad I stumbled on your site πŸ™‚

    My name’s Gina, and I’m a MG writer as well. So here goes – I’m going to invite a character over, who coincidentally will one day become an author: Zora from ‘Zora and Me.’

    See how many birds I just killed with that stone?

    Love these little books! They are wonderful! My favorite is the one with the bookmark, because it just looks like it wants to be read πŸ™‚

    I would invite over James Barrie or Peter Pan (or both!) because every dinner needs magic:)

    Have a sparkling day!

    Those are freaking adorable! Love! Hmm…who would I have over for dinner? Maybe Mr. Darcy. I’ve never seen a version of Pride and Prejudice in which I didn’t love him. πŸ™‚

    Those book pendants are awesome! I love the yellow one.

    I’d invite John Green over for dinner – I love his books, and I think he’s a really intelligent person. I can imagine that we’d have a lot of interesting things to talk about, both literary and otherwise.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Oh my goodness these are adorable. My fave is the yellow. But I wouldn’t say no to any of them!

    Hmmm, who would I want over for dinner. I think Fannie Flagg would be a fun dinner companion – she’s Southern and that rarity of a dyslexic writer.

    what a fun, cute giveaway! Those pendants looks amazing! Love the blue one. πŸ™‚

    hm… I would love to have dinner with Suzanne Collins. Sci-fi is the genre I write in, and I love The Hunger Games so, so much. I would just love to be able to sit and dine with her.

    Or JK Rowling and ask her about her outlining process and how she able to make the HP books so complex! It baffles me every day whenever I think about it. Like… did she KNOW where it was all going to end before she started writing it, or what? So many questions!

    I have so many favorite authors, though not all would make great dinner companions. But for the sake of this contest, I’ll choose Margaret Wise Brown, who by all accounts was a live wire and really fun, smart, creative spirit.

    Thanks for such a fun challenge!
