Diwali giveaway

November begins the season which, in many cultures, includes the celebration of light. As we approach Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, I’d like to celebrate with this giveaway.

Enter now (details below). And while you’re here, feel free to stick around and explore!


What is the prize? Three winners will each win a copy of FAINT PROMISE OF RAIN which I will sign. (Feel free to request that I write a specific message in the book.) Retail value of an unsigned book? Approximately $16. (Value of a signed one? Priceless!)

Who is eligible? Anyone over the age of 13 who has a mailing address in the US or Canada.

How to enter? Click on the widget above and choose one or several of the fun (I hope!) ways to enter. You may enter several times (once per day) to increase your chances.

How long does the giveaway run? Today through November 6th. (Election day in the US. Please vote!) Winners will be drawn on November 7th and notified by November 9th at the latest.

How do I get my prize? If you are one of the winners, then as long as you respond to my email to you within 48 hours and you provide me with a US or Canada mailing address, I will send you the signed book within 72 hours of your response. The postal service will then determine when you actually receive it.
