This is one BIG Contest!!!!

So here’s some info on a HUGE new contest. And I mean HUGE, like Hugey McHugerson huge. Basically, it’s really big. And it’s all to promote the new book Willow by the very nice and most awesome Julia Hoban. The contest is the brainchild of Lauren at and I personally thank her for including me.

Here are the details:

Start Date: March 1
End Date: April 30

To enter: One must buy the book (ARCs do not count of course) and send proof (receipt, picture of book, etc.) to: Lauren51990 AT aol DOT com

The book Willow by Julia Hoban is not released until April 2, so if someone pre-orders the book in March, that will count, and if they go out and buy the book in April, that will count.

One lucky person will win a, you guessed it, HUGE prize pack consisting of everything listed below. Hmmm…I might have to enter this one myself. By the by, this contest is open to everyone, so all of you international folks can join in too.

Prizes you ask?? Well those are listed below:

Khy is giving away Does This Book Make Me Look Fat?
