The contest I ran to give away 6 signed copies of my poetry book, The Dancing Fish, was underwhelming. To enter, folks drew an underwater creature and posted it on Twitter or Instagram. Only 2 entries were submitted. So they automatically won! I’ll mail the book to these brave artists 🙂
The remaining 4 books will be placed in Little Libraries around my neighborhood. I was going to do that with some books anyway, as I love the idea of people walking by and gazing into a Little Library and hopefully discovering the book.
I’m glad I tried the contest as an experiment to encourage people to draw. Just a little something different while we’re being very cautious about spending time in public because of Covid-19.
Stay tuned, as I’m going to announce a new giveaway on Monday. This time, you won’t have to draw anything. I’m simplifying the process by giving away ebooks. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
