InkSpells (Susan Kaye Quinn) and Catherine Stein at her Idea City have come up with some super gift ideas for writers at Christmas. I'm very partial to these: The Chocolate Keyboard and the Telephone Book Dress--recycling at its best.
The gift of time ain't bad either. Someone suggested writers could use more of that than anything. If you have some please don't hesitate to wrap it up for me.
What I'd like to give is a gift of books this season. My family already has theirs under the tree, but I'm also giving some away here to my readers and good friends who write. So, if you want a book in time for Christmas all you have to do is tell me story. I love those that are heartwarming, have a sweet surprise, or make me laugh, so any of these would win a prize.
This week's book is a signed copy of Shooting Kabul. It's a wonderful story with all the characteristics I've listed above. Here are the rules :-) Gots to have rules!
1) In your comment tell me a story with at least one of those great in 100 words or less.
2) Tell the world you just wrote the prize-winning story by TWEETING it or writing a NOTE on FACEBOOK and tagging 10 friends. (Include me in your tags, okay?)
3) Be sure to leave me your email just in case you win and I'll send the book off by Dec. 13th.
I'm looking forward to your stories.
