OOPS! Giveaway

Oops! I recently opened a new box of copies of Illuminations of the Heart and inadvertently cut a big "scratch" in the cover of the copy on top. (See that white line parallel to Siri's chin? Oops!) I could give this copy away to a place like Deseret Industries or Goodwill...or I could see if any of you out there would be interested in winning this slightly marred copy for yourself. Only the cover is scratched (and yes, it's a pretty big scratch), but the text is entirely new and fresh and completely unmarred.

So...would anyone out there like this copy? If so, I'll hold a drawing to give it away. Here's how you can enter for a chance to win:

Email me at WITH YOUR NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS. Type, "JDP NEWS Drawing" in the subject line, and type "I don't care if the cover's got a scratch. I just want to read the STORY!" in the text.

Deadline for entries is midnight, January 31st, PST. I will draw a winner on February 1st. (Let me know if you'd like your marred copy autographed and I'll be happy to comply.)

Good luck and Happy New Year!

I'd really LOVE to read the story, Joyce! *g* I went to Orlando for Xmas and snagged my mom's copy of LW. Were your ears burning? We were talking about you. Well I was. I was singing your praises.
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!

Hey Mel! So *that's* what was going on with my ears. And I thought I was coming down with a cold! LOL!

Seriously, can you see me blushing? I'm so glad you enjoyed LW! I hope you have a wonderful New Year, too!

I can't see you blushing. I want to see you blush!

I have a terrible cold. Need another JDP book to make me feel better. A book a day keeps the doctor away. ;-)

You're so funny, Mel! See this picture of me? Just get a red pencil and shade my face red. Voila! That's me blushing. ;-)

I have a terrible cold, too. I hope we both feel better soon!

I entered, and if I win, I'd LOVE an autographed copy. If I end up winning, I will most definitely read it this year and post a review of it on goodreads (which I have FINALLY joined). :)
