Book giveaway: "Write the Right Words"

As promised in my post reviewing "Write the Right Words" by Sandra Lamb," I will be giving away a signed copy of the book. In fact, the publisher will be giving away the book, and they have the restriction of U.S.A and Canada addresses only, no P.O. Boxes.


1. HOW: To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post. One comment/entry per person, please.

2. WHO: No anonymous comments will be approved. You need a blogger profile to enter this giveaway (simply because I need to know who you are - I'm not going to count through "anonymous #7"), and if you don't have a blogger profile yet, just make one. It's fast, easy and free, doesn't require a blog, and I think only requires a valid email address. Also, your profile with email address MUST be viewable, or you must provide a valid email address in your comment. If your name is drawn as the winner, and I don't have or can't access an email address for you, I'll choose another winner. (Don't be an Indigo.) This bit is important, and I don't like to harp on it, but every giveaway I do, I get at least 3 invalid entries. So either 1) you have an email address or a blog of your own accessible on your blogger profile, which I am allowed to view; or 2) you leave an email address in your comment. If your comment/entry doesn't fall into one of those categories, I'm deleting it before I do the selection, lest it throw the numbers off for the random number generator when I do the final pick. (Less than three hours after my original post, I update to say - wow! I've already rejected an entry because it didn't follow the guidelines.) Lastly, keep your eyes peeled for this magical phrase after you submit your comment/entry: "Comments will be visible after blog owner approval." If you miss that and comment twice, or three times, or more, I'll delete duplicates.

3. WHERE: USA and Canada addresses only, and no P.O. Boxes.

4. WHEN: The deadline for comments/entries is 11:59am (Eastern Standard/NYC time) on Monday, August 30. I will choose and announce the random winner that afternoon.

Good luck!

UPDATE: Congrats to Ginigin, winner of this giveaway!
