Kid B Packs his Essentials, and Your Chance to Win an EVERNEATH Prize Pack

Hey, yo.

Things are about to get EVER-FREAKY around here, mostly because my book comes out in 4 DAYS!! 

I am EVER-excited, and to prove this, I'm going to put "EVER" in front of every single adjective! 

Okay, just kidding. 

Sorry for the sporadic blog posting this week and last, but I've been on a cruise. Sam didn't want me to mention it until after we were back, because he was nervous that burglars religiously follow my blog, just waiting for the moment I mention that we're going out of town. 

So, for all of you religious burglars out there: BAZINGA! You've just been EVER-BAMBOOZLED. Ha HA!

When we told Kid B that he was going on a cruise, he promptly found a suitcase and packed everything his 6-year-old mind thought he would need. Here's what it looked like:

I case you can't tell from the picture, that there is a suitcase full of:

1 standard issue pencil box, filled with crayons

4 multi-colored Yoshi's

1 very angry bird (whose talents include destroying wood. Perfect for a cruise.)

1 paper punch in the shape of a tiger

1 industrial sized tape dispenser

1 roll of heavy duty packing tape (I assume for if the ship springs a leak)

The bottom is just made up of stacks of paper. Because that's the one thing you can't get everywhere. 

He zipped it all up and headed for the door. Sam had to break it to him that we weren't leaving for another 24 hours. The Yoshi's were not impressed. 

I'll tell you all about my trip later, but first I had to show you what was on my doorstep when we got home:

And I want to celebrate. Would you like to win a personalized copy, complete with autograph, from my own personal stash? Along with some EVERNEATH swag like temporary tattoos, a guitar pick necklace, and signed bookmarks?

That, my friends, is what the people-in-the-know call a PRIZE PACK!

Here's your chance to win it. All you have to do is pre-order my book, and you're entered to win! Now, I know some of you are thinking, "But if I pre-order her book, and then I win... won't the space-time continuum implode?"

Wait, that wasn't what you were thinking? Oh. Then maybe you were thinking you'd end up with two books. 

And I say... what's the problem? Double the fun! Do you have a friend who has a birthday ever? This would be perfect! How about a holiday that shows up once a year? Excellent. 

So, pre-order my book from places like Books A Million or Barnes and Noble or Indiebound or anywhere else, and then leave me a comment telling me you pre-ordered the book, and you're entered! Just make sure you include where you ordered it from, your confirmation number, your credit card number and your social security number, along with your mother's maiden name. 

Again, I jest. There's no real way for me to tell if you're lying. So, we are making a gentlemen's agreement. But just for fun's sake, tell me where you ordered it from. :) And if you already pre-ordered, EVER-thank you! And yes, that counts too. 

Okay! That's it! And again, don't forget that everyone's invited to the launch party at The King's English on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.

*I should've mentioned that this contest will end on Tuesday, January 24th at midnight.*

**I also should've mentioned that it counts if you're going to buy your copy from King's English on the night of the launch. Plus, this option will also give you a warm fuzzy feeling because you supported your local indie bookstore. And we all know warm fuzzies attract a lot of luck in a random drawing. **
