So we made it!
Made it through some busy weeks, made it through tax day, and we had a deal.
I said I’d post a blog the week of April 7th — which I did, on the 9th — and have a giveaway after April 15th.
And here we are.
It’s spring. The trees are flowering. There are bunnies hopping everywhere. There’s a container of jelly beans on the table.
I think we can do a couple of giveaways over the next few weeks before school ends. Maybe even three.
Who knows? It might get crazy around here!
Today’s giveaway rests at the intersection of writing and fuzzy critters: it’s a journal and pen set decorated with adorable foxes.
Seriously. One of these guys is wearing a monocle. What. Is Not. To Love.
To enter to win, share your favorite fox story or trivia.
Maybe it’s a scene from “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” (I’ve never seen it), or a great children’s story you love (Beatrix Potter did one, right?). Maybe you have a real-life fox encounter to share (like the time a red fox ran along the top of my fence to get at a squirrel. I am not kidding!). Or maybe you can explain why the male of “fox” is “fox” but the female is “vixen” (please, somebody, take that on!).
Of course, I’d appreciate it if you’d share the news of this giveaway. The more, the merrier; and the more participants we get for this one, the more excitement we can (hopefully) generate for the book giveaways I’d like to do over the next month. If you comment with the link to your Tweet, blog post, FB share, etc., where you promoted this giveaway, I’ll give you an extra entry (per method) into the giveaway.
Commenting on my Facebook feed or replying to a tweet doesn’t count; you have to comment here in order to be entered in the contest.
Entries close one week from today, at 11:59 MT on April 29, 2014.
OK? Ready, set, go!
