NaPoMo Book Giveaway: Y'all Come



43º ~ plenty of sun, clear skies, budding trees


Many thanks to Kelli for organizing the National Poetry Month Book Giveaway. Here's the deal, on May 1, I'll randomly select two winners from the comments left on this post. All you have to do is leave a comment stating you want to be considered in the giveaway. If you're a participating poet, feel free to add a link to your post.

I'll ship anywhere in the world for FREE.

The deadline to leave a comment is April 30th. I do have comment moderation turned on due to a bad spam incident. However, I will post all comments that are legit. If yours doesn't show up within a day of posting, feel free to email me at sandy dot 40 dot longhorn at gmail dot com and query.

On May 1st, I'll choose a winner using a random number generator to select the comments that win. If you don't have a blog profile, be sure to leave your email address or another way to contact you in your comment.

The books I'm giving away are: my own, Blood Almanac, and Mistaken for Song by Tara Bray.

Blood Almanac
(my own)
Anhinga Press, 2006

Hi Sandy,

SO glad you're doing this too. Hopefully by April 1st there will be a gang of us.

Hooray for free books! I love a good poetry party, so I'm giving away some books too.

I already won your book, of course, but please enter me for the Tara Bray collection--I love Persea!

Erin said...

Oh my goodness, your book is on the top of my virtual "to buy" stack. Could I possibly wait until I might have a chance to win it? Hmmm... Glad to be part of the same party with you!

What a great way to promote National Poetry Month! Thank you for the chance to win these books!

Stephanie Goehring said...

I'm in!

Also, for anyone reading this, I'm giving away two books as well, so please stop by my blog to check out the titles and enter if you're interested. Happy (almost) April!

drew said...

Anhinga Press always turns out good books -- can't wait to read (and/or win) yours!

Anne said...

I want to play too! Can I be considered for the give away?

I have a dream I must tell you sometime. Remind me when we see each other next!

I'm a poem mendicant! Please include me in your drawing.

I'd love to include one of your poems on my blog, which is a "reading" blog (I don't write poetry). Please let me know if there's one I can feature. I have used a lot of canonical poets so I don't need to worry about copyright issues, but it would be divine to have some living voices.

Thank you!

Sandy Longhorn said...

Hi all! Just checking in to say THANKS for supporting this effort by taking a chance on winning a book.

Housekeeping note: this post won't count, of course, and if your post gets listed twice for some inexplicable Blogger reason, I'll only count one of them.

Good luck to everyone!
