BOOK GIVE AWAY ALERT!

All right lords, ladies, and warriors from both a far and a near! Saturday May 29th His Way will be having a Launch Party for Bryan Davis' newest book, Starlighter from the Dragons of Starlight series. We are going to be doing a pod-cast from the store so make sure to come back here and tune in if you can't attend!

Now, to the give-away part!

I will be giving away not 1, not 2, but 3 copies of the book.

Here's the catch, because the book has themes of sacrifice and preferring others before yourself I'm going ask that you do the same thing  (this might sound vaguely familiar for those that have stuck with me through the long silence) and nominate someone to receive a copy of Starlighter rather asking for it yourself.

And here's the twist on the catch--you can nominate other posters!

Example: If  say someone named Randi nominates her friend Amy for a free copy, and then  you come here and see her  post and happen  know Randi either from places on-line or in person then you can nominate her for a free copy of the book.  You just can't nominate yourself.

Please, no multiple sn's (nominating yourself under a second name is just plain cheating)

Legal Stuff:

If you are under 18 years of age, get your parents consent (I gotta know where I'm sending the books and they need to know you're giving me your address) to enter the contest. Also, if you're nominating someone that doesn't live near you, and they are under age I need THEIR parents consent or I can send the book to you and you can send it onto them.  Your choice :-D

Open to residents of  the UNITED STATES and CANADA only--sadly I can't afford to send books overseas. Maybe one day I will!  Just not today.

Leave your nomination in the comments here OR send it to


everlastingscribe@hotmail.com and put in the title line  NOMINATION


You have until Saturday at NOON to get them in and then Bryan will hopefully sign the book LIVE in the podcast!

I nominate my friend Kaitlyn, ( http://www.google.com/profiles/115140301448006459478 ) Because she loves all things well written and is an aspiring writer herself. She's a fan of Mr. Davis' other books, so I'm sure she'll enjoy this one. :)

Great idea for the nomination process!
