I will pull three names, and you will just have to email at oldgirl_1@earthlink.net or Oldgirlladylee@gmail.com . Now if you want your book signed, you BEST be getting your name and addy to me. I will leave this post up til Thursday night, and then I will pull names on Friday morning. SO, I will get them signed Friday night. Get your name to me.

Heck, some folk just send a straight email. FINE. Do that. Just enter to win. Three chances to win, babes!

I finished the book a couple of days ago. (I had read a rough draft a couple times).

One word: STELLAR.

Fine, FINE piece of literature. I mean very finely written. Multi-layered. Just a fine fine work on so many levels. And I aint saying that because I am her number one fan or cuz I stalk the cheese out of her. I am saying that from the writer in me.

The chick wrote this book. If she would've been standing next to me when I finished reading it, I would've thrown the book to the floor and hugged her tight... and cried my eyes out, Man.

That is all.

And I could even see where she used a couple of my suggestions! (*lee turning infinite number of cartwheels all around the room*)

And you know it's a GOOD thing (well for me, NOT Tayari), that I could just blow her cell phone text messages UP with quotes I liked, etc. Sometimes she even answered me. (This was a good thing for the stalker in me).

And the reviews are nice. Also, she was even on the Bat Segundo show. Click the link! A great podcast! You can hear an interview about Silver Sparrow for 30 minutes. Oh joy!!

Here's a review from the local Atlanta newspaper. I have it tacked up in my cubicle at work.

As you can see, Lil' Serenity Chicken is standing atop my laptop reading it.

Turn this way, Chicken! Fix your scarf on your head, and smile for the camera!!!

LOL. She looks pleased. She's smiling... on the inside.

You TOO can be pleased, just like Lil' Serenity Chicken! Enter the drawing to win a Silver Sparrow.

PLEASE leave your NAME. What is up with entering anonymously? Is your name John or Jane Doe? NOPE. Leave a first name, nickname, blog name... something!

Enter to win! You have 2 days! Win a GREAT free book :)
