Last week, I was thinking about different types of blog posts I enjoy as a reader, and Giveaways are definitely one of them. Not only do I usually learn about a new resource or book I might be interested in, but there’s a chance I might actually receive the resource. For free.
So last week, I determined to do (at least) one Giveaway each month. And as luck would have it, I accidentally ordered two copies of Outlining Your Novel Workbook: Step-by-Step Exercises for Planning Your Best Book by K.M. Weiland. Normally I’d return one, but when they arrived on Saturday I thought, “Hey, I ordered this to prepare for NaNoWriMo. I’ll bet some other writer would love a chance to win it!” And, thus, my first Giveaway was born.
The Product: What Will You Win?
Outlining Your Novel Workbook provides a workbook approach to creating your novel. From the early brainstorming stages through scene and character organization, this workbook helps you set the stage to get organized and get writing. It can be used with the companion book, Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success, or as a standalone resource (this is how I’m using it!). The workbook version provides a summary of each technique at the beginning of every chapter, then expands on it through interactive exercises. Each chapter is full of questions, tips, and tools to get you writing fast. This book is a perfect prep tool for NaNoWriMo, and even if you’re not a WriMo participant it is an excellent resource for generating ideas and moving your story out of your head onto the page.
How to Enter:
Now that you’re convinced this is a great resource at an awesome price (what beats free?), you’re thinking, “How do I enter to win?” Here’s the deal… There are two ways to enter to win** your copy of Outlining Your Novel Workbook, and you can do both! You can earn one entry by simply commenting on this post (one entry per user).
