Birthday Giveaway!

Thank you to everyone who entered my Birthday Giveaway! Earlier today, I put all the names into a box, shook it up really well, and handed it over to my fiancé. He drew the winning names, one-by-one, in the interest of keeping everything random and objective. That’s how it went down, Girl Scout’s honor. (Yes, I was a Girl Scout back in the day.)

Here are the winners who are getting hardcover picture books:

1. Jen Garrett

2. Jenna Grodzicki

3. Judy Sobanski

4. Pam Zollman

5. Karla Valenti

6. Maria Marshall

Here are the winners who are getting Parisian book bags:

1. Erin McKenna Nowak

2. Tasha Hilderman

3. Vivian Kirkfield

4. Christine Evans

5. Rajani LaRocca

6. Midge Ballou Smith

CONGRATS to all 12 of you! Please private message me via Twitter or at “katearonson (at) gmail (dot) com” with your postal address so that I can get these prizes in the mail to you :-). 


February is a short month, but OH IS IT SWEET! And not only because of Valentine’s Day…

Today happens to be my birthday and I’m throwing a virtual party right here, to the tune of…

“It’s my party, I’ll give away books if I want to, books if I want to, books if I want to…”

As a kid, I didn’t care for birthday cake and I wasn’t a huge fan of pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey either (performance anxiety). But I LOVED party favors! So, 12 lucky winners are about to receive party favors from me:

6 will receive a surprise picture book from my personal library

6 will receive this Parisian book bag (since I live in France)

PrizeBox 2

(For the books: No, you won’t know which title you’re getting, but rest assured: Authors of the books I’m gifting include Molly Idle, Margie Palatini, Tara Lazar, Aaron Reynolds, Sarah Wilson, and Joan Holub! We’re talking talent, peeps.)

Are you game? All you need is a Twitter account to enter:

  1. Follow me on Twitter @mademoiselleK8 if you haven’t yet.
  2. Comment on this post ONCE with: a) your full name b) your Twitter handle c) your favorite birthday dessert.

Winners selected randomly at the end of February and contacted thereafter via this post and Twitter. Good luck!
