While I work on revisions to The Book of Esther and prepare for it to come out next year, I thought it would be fun to give some things away on my Facebook page. I have a first-edition copy of The Testament of Yves Gundron that I’m ready to inscribe and send to someone; I’ll hold a little draw when I get to 600 likes. Want to come join me over there? There’s literary and teaching news, and occasionally a cute picture of a cat, kid, or baby. If you’d like to, please visit my page, click Like, and enable notifications (so you’ll hear about it when the giveaway happens—curses on you, Zuck, for not otherwise allowing authors, artists, and small businesses to reach the people interested in their work!). See you there, and more soon.
