Today is August 1st, which means it's time to update the comment contest. See, I'm on top of things so far this month! Comments made on Augst 1st and beyond will count toward this contest. The winner of July's contest will be announced tomorrow.
How to enter: Each comment you leave on this blog equals one entry into the pot. These must be genuine comments, and other contest entries won't count for this contest. By genuine comment I mean it must add something to the conversation taking place. In other words a comment that says simply "cool" or "please enter me" will not help you win this book. Your fate is in your own hands. The more you comment, the better chance you have at winning. So if you really want the book, comment a lot! At the end of the month I randomly pick one winner for the prize. It's that easy.
August's prize is a brand new hardcover copy of Chasing the Jaguar by Michele Dominguez Greene. To win it, comment away until August 31st at midnight PST. The randomly selected winner will be announced early in September. Good luck to everyone!
