More copies of The Penny Tree to give away!

I've got a few things to cover today and then I won't be posting again until next week. First of all, we're giving away three more autographed copies of The Penny Tree, but here's the fun part: Only those who comment on this post will be entered to win!

So if you normally read my blog, but don't comment, stop being so shy. Click on 'comments' and then choose the 'anonymous' option and leave your name (first name with last initial works fine if you don't want to give your full name). Oh, and please feel free to pass the word! Tell anyone you like to join in -- friends, co-workers, family. Then, next week, we're going to pick three winners
on Saturday, April 28th.

Secondly, a reminder that New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs has invited me over to her blog for a Q&A about The Penny Tree this Friday, April 20th. Here's the link. If you have a few minutes, pop by and check it out: http://susanwiggs.wordpress.com/

Last of all, I'm leaving for Chicago on Friday, where I'll be staying with my friend, Sally Weingartner, who plays a walk-on part in The Penny Tree along with the company she works for, DDB Chicago. I'll be reading at Borders Books & Music, 150 North State Street on Monday, April 23rd at 12:30pm. If you can make it out to join us, I'd love to see you!

Oh, thanks for the heads up about Susan's blog. I've just picked up a couple of her books and I'm going to hear her this weekend at my library. YAY!

And I sooooo hope I win a copy of The Penny Tree!

I'll send an email to my nephew who is attending Northwestern. Hopefully he can take a break from studies and see your signing.

Therese said...

Don't enter me in the contest--I have my copy and in fact finished reading last night!

But I do want to wish you safe travels and a great turnout in Chicago. Wish I could be there--it's one of my favorite cities. :)

I would really like to win an autographed copy of your new book! A friend of mine (Karen) referred me to your site and rumour has it she is also one of the characters in your new book.

I unabashedly beg to be included. Have fun in Chicago. I'm in Miami now. Got home to Phoenix from Oahu last night, washed clothes, then hopped a plane to Miami this afternoon.

Now I have to sleep.

Hi, Holly.

I'd love to win a copy of The Penny Tree.

And, as someone else mentioned in a comment to an earlier post, if you ever read in the Toronto area, I'll drive the 2.5 hours to see you!

Lucky you--Chicago is one of my favorite cities. Would you recommend a beginner Holly Kennedy reader start with your first book and move forward to this one, or will I get the full understanding of your talent by reading THE PENNY TREE? Asking which one is your favorite, is like asking which of your children is your favorite, I suppose. If I don't win, I'll definitely pick up THE PENNY TREE. It sounds great.

Melissa Marsh said...

Oooh, oooh! I want a copy! ;)

Have fun in Chicago! I was there in November and LOVED it.

Heidi the Hick said...

Am I on time? I never win anything but I'd sure like a crack at it! And autographed even!!

I'm sure there are many more deserving than I. Having said that, I won't complain when I receive my copy.

Drag me away from life's stresses to throw my name into the ring.

I'm so excited that you'll be in the area - I hope I get to see you. Good luck with your trip. :)

Anissa said...

I already bought a copy, but if I win an autographed one, I'll pass mine on to a worthy reader. ;)

Have a wonderful trip!
