Contest! You can win!

Dear Readers,

How would you like a free copy of my newest book, MIGHTY CASEY? Signed! And even personalized!


All you have to do is enter this here contest! The rules:

1. Leave a comment on this blog post. (Click the link at the end of this post that says "comments", and proceed.)

2. In your comment, leave a name--it need not be your real name. Just don't leave it "anonymous".

3. Your comment has to be this (and in this order):

a) Favorite children's book
b) Favorite song
c) Favorite television show
d) Favorite animal
e) Favorite movie
f) Favorite snack



Don't ask me why. I'm just trying to make it fun, ok? And, you know, it ain't gotta be, like, your absolute favorite. If you're like me, that's too hard. Just name a favorite--current or past. In each category.

You got til Friday to do it. That's April 10.

Then, I'll put each name on a piece of paper, toss them all into a hat, and let my 5-month-old daughter pull out the winner. Or I'll do it if she's not into it.

I will announce the winner by also commenting into the "comments" section at around 5pm (central) Friday. So don't forget to check back! The winner will email me her/his mailing info and I'll take care of the rest.

This is all at absolutely no cost to you.

Good luck. God speed.


sincerely,

M.T.Cordell

p.s. Keep it clean. I got kids reading this.
