Did you get everything on your Christmas [book] list? I asked my husband for an Amazon gift card, but he bought me a book instead. Granted, it was one I asked for--The Hidden Christ by James Ferrell, so thank you very much, dear. Really. I just started reading it and I know I'm going to love it. (BTW…I highly recommend Ferrell’s other two books, The Peacegiver and The Holy Secret—they’re different than the typical novel, but their messages are amazing. His newest book is nonfiction).
This is actually not a post about author James Ferrell or what I got for Christmas, but a post about you and what you got for Christmas and you winning something that will store and display all those book somethings you got for Christmas. Yes, today is the day I'm announcing an awesome give-away…the chance to win something that book-lovers and book-collectors can never get too many of…bookcases.
I am giving away a bookcase valued at $60, courtesy of csnbookcases.com. Please check out their lovely website with all the varied and wonderful possibilities for bookcases. I especially love the ones designed for children found here. Someday, I would love to design a playroom for grandkids with cool shelves for kids books. So fun!
This very well may be my first ever blog giveaway, so I'm making it a good one. The lucky winner will get to choose ONE of these three bookcases... (and no, I'm not coming over to assemble it if assembly is required.)

Books, framed photos, and is that a box of tissue, not included.
To enter, please humor me and become a follower on my blog. (If I hit 100 followers (aiming high) I will give lucky number 100 a gift certificate for vinyl lettering worth $15.
Let's see, how else can you make my day...hmmm...comments, lots and lots of comments... (as I cackle and rub my hands together... I've got you in my power now. You want that bookcase don't you? DON'T YOU?) So leave a comment and convince me that you'll buy my novel whenever in the heck I finish writing/revising/editing/ submitting/publishing it. And yes, I realize you don't even know the title of it yet (except for the favored few) but just promise me, PROMISE ME.
Sorry for the lapse there. How about just a comment telling me a book you got for Christmas and if you really didn't get one for Christmas then I am so sorry and I will personally file a complaint with the North Pole in your behalf. But level with me, were you just not good enough this year?
Okay, here's the bottom line:
1) one entry for becoming a follower/two if you already are (early bird gets the worm and all) as of riiiiight....NOW.
2) one entry for a comment
3) two entries for sharing the contest complete with link on your blog or any of those other online places you like to haunt. Just let me know where.
Did I forget anything? How about more prizes? I sell vinyl lettering, so I will also pick some winners to receive $15 gift certificates for custom lettering. This will be after I draw the big bookcase winner because it is so lame to be picked for a lesser prize and then be out of the running for the greater, more awesome prize. It's so, so...yeah, lame. And I am not about lameness here at the Of Writerly Things blogspot.
I'll post about the contest over at my vinyl lettering blog. Feel free to stop by there as well.
