I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I really think it’s my mom who deserves to be celebrated on my birthday since she’s the one that did all the work. That being said, I’ve been know to try to talk my family, (my husband in particular,) into letting me extend the celebration of my birthday, (primarily in the form of donuts and restaurant breakfasts,) into the week before, and after November 6th.
Since today is November 2nd, it certainly fits within this reasonable time-frame. I’ve already eaten a bag of the Moose Munch that my mom sent me for my birthday present, and there are FOUR more to go, so I am more than covered in the present department.
But what about YOU?! What can I get YOU for my birthday? After all, you’ve given me the gift of your time and support all year long so now I want to do something for you.
My favorite gift (aside from Moose Munch) is always books, and I just happen to have some special ones that I know you will love.
For my birthday, I’m going to be giving away a signed copy of
(see below about all the bonus autographs in this one!)
“It’s Really 10 Months – Special Delivery,”
“Martinis & Motherhood – Tales of Wonder, Woe & WTF?!”
It was really a gift to be given the opportunity to have my stories included in each of these books along with many of my favorite writers.
As an added bonus, the copy of “I Just Want to Be Perfect” is also signed by
Jen Mann – People I Want to Punch in the Throat / I Just Want to Pee Alone
Deva Nicole Dalporto – MyLifeSuckers
Jessica Azar – Herd Management
Harmony Hobbs – Modern Mommy Madness
E.R. Catalano – Zoe vs. the Universe
Lisa René LeClair – Sassypiehole
Nicole Leigh Shaw – NicoleLeighShaw.com
Kim Bongiorno – Let Me Start By Saying
Audrey Hayworth – Sass Mouth
Kathryn Leehane – Foxy Wine Pocket

You can enter through November 6th, and then whenever I wake up from celebrating on Monday morning, I’ll use a random number generator to choose the winner of each book.
