Just Let Me Lie Down Giveaway! Ends 3/15/10

It’s been about 2 months since I last had a contest *fist-shake at economy*, so I thought it was time that I had another contest, and since the super awesome Hatchette is sponsoring this contest, I thought, why not?

I have three copies of Just Let Me Lie Down by Kristin Van Ogtrop up for grabs.

To enter is easy, all you have to do is fill out this form. There’s no extra entries, no hoops to jump through. When I draw winners, the publisher will send the prize directly.

The contest will end March 15. I’ll draw winners on the 16th.
US and Canada residents only.
No P.O. Boxes
13 years and older only unless you have a parent to enter for you.

Here’s a brief synopsis of Just Let Me Lie Down:
Kristin van Ogtrop knows she’s lucky–fulfilling career, great husband, three healthy kids, and, depending on the hamster count, an impressive roster of pets. She also knows she is tired. Always.

Using stories and insights from her own life, she provides a lexicon for the half-insane working mom. Anyone who has left a meeting to race to the Halloween parade immediately understands van Ogtrop’s definition of “Kill the messenger” as “The action you must take in order to forget about the office for a time–that is, to remove your Blackberry/Treo/iPhone/whatever from your person and store it as far away as your neurotic self will allow.” Filled with essays, lists, and resonant observations, JUST LET ME LIE DOWN establishes van Ogtrop as the Erma Bombeck of the new millennium.

Again, here’s the form

  5. Raspberry says

    Just so you know, the question at the bottom of the form says Are you 13 years of age? I'm 28, so I put no, but maybe you were trying to ask if you were older than that?
    Anyways. Thanks for the giveaway. πŸ™‚

  6. April (BooksandWine) says

    Raspberry – I changed the form to say are you 13 or older. Thank you for catching my mistake πŸ™‚
