First, I am pleased to say that I completed the Denver Publishing Institute! I have lots of things to catch up on, including a lot of e-mail and blogs, as well as revisiting and re-reviewing books I've read. I have a handful of books remaining from my 2004 reads, and then it's on to a mix of the greatest hits from yesterday and today, to borrow a line from radio!
In the meantime, a contest open to people with a U.S. mailing address! I have a hardback copy of Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson to give away. If you didn't read this when it was first out, it's a fun take on Peter Pan. I've read it, but I'm not quite ready to post my review yet!
For a chance to win, leave me a comment with your pirate name--one you make up or find on the internet somewhere. You'll also have to leave me a way to contact you; you can leave an e-mail address, but I recommend that you insert some extra spaces to prevent getting spam. If you'd like two chances to win, post a link to this contest on your blog--saying "Win a copy of Peter and the Starcatchers here!" with a link is plenty!"--and leave me a link in your comment. I'll count that as an additional comment for you when I do a random number draw on Friday, August 13, at midnight Mountain time. If you win, I'll e-mail you for your U.S. mailing address. I apologize for not being able to send books internationally!
