The day of my book release party, one of the elders at my home congregation very generously bought several books and told me to give them to those who could benefit from the book but couldn’t afford one, etc. I was so touched by his generosity and wanted to make sure I honored his request to the best of my ability.
Most of the people that I know in the area have bought copies of the book already. Some have even bought copies of the book for people they know couldn’t afford it. I had to be creative to think of the best way to get these gifts into the right hands.
I’d always intended to do a few giveaways, but I hadn’t yet decided how to do it. Being gifted with these books reminded me of an idea I’d had for a giveaway early on, before I’d even approved the book for publication. Now that I’ve got a few books to give away and a good way to decide who gets a free copy of Altered before the Altar, it’s time to introduce the Alter Me Contest!
To enter, simply post why you feel like you should receive a copy of Altered before the Altar. You can talk about changes you want to make to your relationships or spiritual life or anything else you feel reflects how winning a copy of Altered before the Altar will alter you for the better. You can enter on behalf of someone you know who would benefit from the book as well, but be sure to have their first and last name as well as their mailing address should you win a copy for them.
Here are the rules:
To win a physical copy of the book, you must live in the United States. I can send a kindle copy as a gift to readers in Canada, England, etc.
Each winner must be at least 13 years of age.
Each entry must be shared on social media with the hashtag #AlterMe2014 or #Alteredbeforethealtar. Please tag me as well so I can see your entry. Note: whatever social media you choose should be able to be viewed others–I cannot see or accept entries from protected or locked accounts.
