A Quick Note About a 7-Imp Book Give-Away
(and then go read our interview below with kidlitosphere royalty)

h1 December 12th, 2007 by jules

Eisha and I are pleased as punch to say that we’ll be interviewing Kimberly Willis Holt next week. I believe she’s on one of those so-called, new-fangled blog tours, meaning you’ll see her stop at a few other places, too, but we’re just happy she’ll be stopping here at all. We will take any reason to chat with her, as we’re both quite fond of her writing.

So, that interview will be next Wednesday, December 19th, and in anticipation and celebration of it, we (well, really Henry Holt and Kimberly Willis Holt) are giving away a copy of Piper Reed: Navy Brat, her newest title, which also happens to be a chapter book and which I also happened to review here, should you want more information on it. Best of all, Kimberly will be autographing this free copy of Piper Reed. Wahoo! If you’re interested in winning a copy, just leave a comment here. I suppose I can put all the names in a hat and convince my three-year-old daughter to draw a name from said hat when the day’s done. How does that sound?

Don’t forget today’s interview — just below this post — with the one and only Tasha Saecker of Kids Lit.

  1. I’m looking forward to this interview – and this book! Thanks for hosting the contest!

  2. I’m a huge fan of hers–can’t wait for the interview! Put my name in the hat.

  3. I must must must read this book after reading your review. Should I bribe your daughter with cookies?

  4. Given all the Cybils books I’ve been getting in the mail, I feel a bit guilty about throwing my name in said hat for a free book. Okay, I’m over it now! This looks like a great story. I can’t wait to read your interview.

  5. Oh, fun! Enter me please…

  6. Wahoo! I’ve entered a lot of contests lately… I’ve got to win something… Right?

  7. For a chance to win a copy of this book, I shall de-lurk. I’m in the GSLIS program at Dominican University, but I actually discovered your site while looking for information about John Green and Looking for Alaska for my church book club last April. I’ve been greatly enjoying it since then.

  8. I’ve been winning a lot of contests lately (just blogged about it too), but why not! I’ll try for another. Looking forward to the interview.


  9. I’ve heard such great things about this one! I’d love to be entered 🙂


  10. This sounds like a fun book so add my name to the list!

  11. Oh! I just read Keeper of the Night by her and LOVED it! Can’t wait to read the interview. Put my name in the hat. I haven’t read her newest book yet. 🙂

  12. Hi Julie,
    I just love your website, your kids and you!
    Won;t see you Thursday as I am taking some comp time to take my kid to the dr.
    I would like to be entered in the contest. I am getting some ordering ideas from your blog.

    Merry Christmas to you, Miriam and Ada

  13. I just found your blog and it is great. I would love to be entered into your contest too.

    Looking forward to the interview.


  14. Thanks, everyone. I just emailed you all that the name chosen from the hat by my three-year-old (really, chosen from an old plastic Cool Whip bowl) was Becky. Wahoo for Becky!

    As I told you all in the email, there MAY be some “consolation prizes”; if so, I’ll email you all again.

    Otherwise, the book give-away is officially closed. Just sayin’ for the record. (I still feel like I’m in Sales now or something).

    thanks to all!
