Da Rules For The 2013 Every Day In May Book Giveaway

We are giving away 85 books and e-books this year!

Here is the complete list.

View the giveaway Pinterest board.

These are all books by author mamas and women writers, therefore women writers of any genre are encouraged to participate.

This year’s book giveaway theme is self-expression. So if you participate in the book giveaway every day, you will learn a ton about yourself, even if you never win a single book.

But, since we are giving away so many books this year, I have a sneaky suspicion you will win, if you are consistent. And consistency is also a great exercise for writers. So I hope you will join us!

Please read these rules before you start participating in the giveaway:

The giveaway starts at 12:01 a.m. on April 30, 2013 and runs through midnight on May 30, 2013.

I will be offering at least one new prize each day (many days more than one!).

There is no purchase necessary to enter. Only one comment per day is all you need to enter. But you must answer the daily question for a chance to win fabulous books by author mamas. Other types of responses will be deleted before the drawing.

1. You must comment to the post that describes the daily prize(s) you want to win, in order to be entered into the drawing for that day. No exceptions. Please be sure to comment to the correct post. The comment link is located just under the post title. Your comment will be posted either immediately or after it is approved (usually within a few hours after you post…unless I am sleeping, in which case give me a little extra time).

2. You may comment only once per day on the Giveaway posts (and therefore be entered to win only once per day). You are welcome to comment every day. If you make a spelling or grammatical error in your post, just let it go. Don’t comment twice to correct it. Winners are selected by random drawing, and don’t worry, a typo will not eliminate you. :)

3. All comments must answer the question of the day, which will be posted at the end of each post each day. In other words, no drive-by commenting, like, “I want to win!” Your comment must be between 50-200 words or it will be deleted to give the best chance to win to those who answer thoughtfully.

4. Comment to win beginning on April 30th at 00:01 a.m. PST and continue to comment each day for 31 days for maximum chances to win. Each day’s drawing closes at midnight (12:00) PST. Please note that I am on Pacific Standard Time, not Eastern Standard time. The winner is chosen by random drawing the next day. There is no set time for the drawing, because I’m here, I’m there, I’m everywhere. So, stay tuned! I’ll get the winner posted as soon as I can each day, usually by noon.

5. Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery of your item. Prizes will be shipped within the contiguous United States only. You may participate if you live abroad and have your own US mailing address. And yes, sure, if you have a friend who loves you so much that he/she is willing to ship your books from the US to you elsewhere in the world, that is fine, too. We can send the books “care of.” Please provide a “care of” name, if you want to go this route when you are contacted. Ditto Alaska and Hawaii folks.

6. Thanks for keeping things jolly. Everyone involved in this giveaway is a volunteer, including me. This is the sixth  time I have hosted a giveaway like this. If you would like to thank me, feel free to purchase a copy of one of my books from your favorite bookseller or my website. Your support would make my day.

7. Please be patient while waiting for your book. If two weeks have passed since your winning date and you still do not have it, please e-mail me at christina at christina katz dot com and I will follow-up with your author.

Thank you for spreading the word about The Writer Mama Every-Day-In-May Book Giveaway! You can view the complete list of prizes here.

If it’s anything like years’ past, it’s going to be a ton of fun!

Welcome back to all of our veteran participants and welcome to anyone who is new!

Come back on Tuesday to comment. And then we hope to see you every day in May!

    Day 2

    I like many colors but green is my favorite. For years I loved green because it seemed so connected to nature- at times the ocean has a green tint; I love the year round green of the pine, spruce, and hemlock trees where I grew up; the soft green of new plants in the vegetable garden when they first sprout through the
    soft earth; the carpet of grass that surrounds the house. There is a religious feeling about the respect I have for the nature around me, the places where I grew up and have lived.

    On the personal side, as an adult I am drawn to green clothes because they complement my green eyes. I come from a family of
    brown eyed people on my mom’s side so having green eyes set me apart. There was no apparent reason for my green eyes. It was not until I was much older, a grandma in fact, that I learned in my father’s family green eyes are dominant. I don’t remember him. Eventually I discovered his three other children and even
    with three different moms the biggest common denominator is that we all have green eyes. Green feels like a natural part of who I am. Even my grand kids know, and when asked what is Grammy’s favorite color they shout in unison-GREEN!

    I don’t feel any differently when I am alone. Most days what you see is what you get regardless of where I am or who I’m with. I’m
    reserved, but not cautious if I feel strongly about an issue. I try to see the good in people around me. I enjoy solitude, it’s my time to mull things over,read, and be at peace with the world. It’s a time to rejuvenate and prepare for what is coming next. Time alone is always productive.
