December book giveaway: Davis, Larrabee, Madden

This month’s book giveaway is a set of all three 2017 Robin Becker Series chapbooks: Portrait of a Voice by Mary Ann Davis, Murmuration by Hannah Larrabee, and So they can sing by Ed Madden. I’ll draw names from a hat. To enter, go to my Facebook page, search for “December book giveaway,” and post a response describing something you’ve done this month to help another writer or artist. The winner will be randomly selected on January 1 and I will mail your book anywhere anywhere on the planet. Last month’s winner was Jeff Walt, who receives a copy of Philip F Clark’s The Carnival of Affection.

November book giveaway: Philip F Clark, The Carnival of Affection

Carnival of Affection

This month’s book giveaway is a brand-new copy of The Carnival of Affection by Philip F Clark. I’ll draw names from a hat. To enter, go to my Facebook page, search for “November book giveaway,” and post a response describing something you’ve done this month to help another writer or artist. The winner will be randomly selected on November 30 and I will mail your book anywhere anywhere on the planet. Last month’s winner was Karla Huston, who received a copy of Carolyn Forché’s The Angel of History.

September book giveaway: Craig Arnold, Made Flesh

made flesh

Somehow I ended up with an extra copy of Made Flesh, Craig Arnold’s second book of poems, and decided to try something different: instead of listing it on PaperbackSwap (try this site if you haven’t yet; we sure need more good poetry books in circulation), I thought I’d reward a random person for their support of other artists and writers. Here’s the text of the FB post:

“. . . Tell me something you’ve done this month to help another writer or artist and I’ll put your name in the hat. One name will be drawn on Saturday morning, Sept 23. I’ll mail the book anywhere on the planet.”

So there wasn’t much of a response, but that just made the odds even better for the folks who did chime in. Congrats to Sam Pittman: your book is on the way!

I’ve decided to try this as a monthly giveaway. We’ll see how it goes.
