You don’t even know how excited I am that THEODOSIA AND THE EYES OF HORUS launches today, the first day of National Library Week! Truly the perfect alignment of the stars, as far as I’m concerned. Also? I get to spend part of the week with Texan Librarians!
As everyone is painfully aware, libraries have been hit especially hard in these hard economic times. Public and school libraries budgets have been slashed to zero lately (if not closed down altogether) and I want to do what little I can to help them out.
So to celebrate the launch of THEODOSIA AND THE EYES OF HORUS, I’m going to spread some Library Love. I have a box of author copies that I would LOVE to donate to some libraries about the country. And that’s where you come in. (It’s easy and painless, I promise!) Leave a comment nominating a local school or public library of your choice for the drawing. That’s it. That’s all you have to do. Well, and help spread the word. It would be fun to be sure lots of different libraries had a chance to enter the drawing. (Teachers and librarians can absolutely nominate their own library!)
At the end of the week, I will randomly draw the names of ten of those libraries, each of which will receive a hardback copy of EYES OF HORUS and a paperback copy of THEODOSIA AND THE STAFF OF OSIRIS. (And if the library doesn’t have a copy of the first book, THEODOSIA AND THE SERPENTS OF CHAOS, I’ll throw in a copy of that as well.) I can either send the books to the nominator to take to their library, or I can mail them directly to the library itself, commenter’s choice. AND, the grand prize winning library will also win a cash donation of $100 to spend on books.
Thanks for playing!
