GiveAway: Signed copy of my new book.

Hello and welcome to my super blatant attempt to get you to share the news about my new book, 'Life Is Short, Laundry Is Eternal'. Let's not mix words, I need your help getting the word out and I am giving away some of my personal stash of signed books in trade - sound fair? 

I like to keep giveaways simple so how about you post on FaceBook, Twitter or Pinterest something like, "I can't wait to read Life Is Short, Laundry Is Eternal -" and then leave a comment under this post telling me where you shared, something like this, "I want to win and I posted on FaceBook". Just make sure to include this link when you post - it points to a book info page on Arden's Day, not to any retailer.

If by some chance there is more than, let's say, 50 20 entries, I'll giveaway another book. If we reach 100 60 entries, I'll add a third book and so on until my supply runs low, the contest gets boring or I get scolded by my publisher for giving away books. 

Arden will draw a winner randomly from a hat, I'll contact you so you can choose how you'd like the book signed (nothing too dirty) and then personally mail you your book. Perhaps the lucky winner(s) will consider writing a short book review that I can post here on Arden's Day, maybe send a picture of you and your book?

As with any contest, please only enter once per book, one entry per person and let's say I reserve the right to make this up as we go along.

I'd really love to win this! I want to read this! I've been telling Type 1 Diabetes who's boss for 13 years, but I'm excited to read from a Dad's perspective. (But I plan on getting my hands on it soon!)
I posted it on my twitter! @mindy_bartleson
