Today’s winner is my college friend, Colin! He wins a signed copy of my first chapbook, Familia. I did not make it to our college reunion this year, so I missed seeing Colin and other friends, but hopefully I’ll see everyone next year for the Centennial Celebration.
For those who haven’t read my recent posts about my new book, Entre la claridad, go take a look at them now so you know what these giveaways are all about. You can also learn more about Familia and my new chapbook on the “My Publications” page above.
The next drawing will take place Friday night, between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. To enter, you need to go like the Entre la claridad page on Facebook. Then, you have to come back here and leave a comment that you did so, or you can send me an e-mail. Facebook has a rule against using the act of liking a page as an automatic entry to a contest, so please remember to let me know that you have liked the page to enter the drawing.
If you want to buy Entre la claridad, it is available from Mouthfeel Press. Take a look at the other books from the press while you are there; you’ll see a selection of books by innovative and talented poets. Poetry chapbooks make great Christmas gifts!
Finally, I also wanted to announce that there is a new link up that is part of the Liturgical Calendar Link up Party organized by Xhonané at Familia Católica. The Christmas Link Up is hosted by Beatriz at De FAMILIA, dos puntos. Everyone is invited to join the fun, so if you blog about Christmas, go attach your link. Click on the button on the top left sidebar, or at the end of this post for more information.
For Catholics, the Christmas season begins on December 25th, with the birth of Jesus, and ends on January 9th, when we celebrate the Baptism of the Lord. I plan to post several times for this link up, so please check back to see:
- the Christmas and Nativity crafts we have done in the past and will do this year
- an activity for the Solemnity of Mary, celebrated on January 1
- an activity for the Most Holy Name of Jesus, celebrated on January 3.
