Book Giveaway for Banned Books Week Hop! Win 1 of 3 signed copies of SCARS

I am happy to be part of the Banned Books Week Hop! My own book SCARS was challenged–so I’ll be giving away three copies of Scars this week. I will sign and personalize the book for you if you live in the US, Canada, or UK, and I’ll include some swag (bookmarks, etc.)

I also created a video on banned books–on not letting other people dictate what we read, and on some of my favorite banned books. I’ve always read banned books, and strongly believed it’s important for people to choose what they read, but now that Scars has been challenged, I care about that even more. I hope you’ll watch, and if you like it, maybe you’ll share it.

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment below. That will get you one entry, and you can also get added entries. Contest is open to US, Canada, UK, and anywhere that the Book Depository will ship.

You get:
one entry for leaving a comment on this post
one entry for tweeting or posting about this contest
one entry for watching my banned book video (please be honest; I want the video to reach people)
three entries for tweeting or posting about my banned book video:

Good luck!

    I really feel that in preventing their children from reading books with content they may see as uncomfortable, or even inappropriate to them, parents are doing more harm than good by “protecting” their children. this book looks interesting. I’ve heard that Scars is a fantastic read.

  12. Ofelia Sharpe Says:

    I love what you said about how these books offer different perspectives on very important issues. Count me in please! Thanks for the giveaway! I am loving this giveaway hop.
