A change of plans with the giveaway, which effects my fellow authors if they wish:

Danielle Taylor showed me that getting other authors to donate free books as prizes along with their Twitter and Facebook info will help spread the word.  It will also help other authors get something out of this event.

If you’re interested, please send me the following either in the comments or by email some time today:

  1. Title of the book that you wish to donate as a prize.  Please include format.
  2. Facebook Author Page.
  3. Twitter Site.

The contest will go until February 28th and you’ll be contacted about who the winner of your book is along with an email address.  Thank you to anyone who wishes to be a part of this event and I apologize for the short notice since the contest starts tomorrow.
