Giveaway: Two Books & Two Sets of Prints!

Yes it ISSSSS. Today I’m giving away TWO signed copies of my husband’s book of short stories, We Can’t Go Home Again.

It was released at the beginning of the year for Kindle (99¢) and iTunes (99¢), but it was just released in paperback!

(If you don’t want to wait to win, you can just go order it, ’cause it’s only $5!)

I’m also giving away two sets of little beautiful prints that feature lines from his book!

TO ENTER: Leave a comment with your EMAIL ADDRESS or TWITTER HANDLE.
You get a DOUBLE ENTRY if you click “Like” on this post, too!

(I need a way to get a hold of you if you win.)

Four people will win! Two people will get a copy of the signed book, and two people will get a set of prints. ♥

Entry closes on Thursday, May 10th, at midnight PST.

* * *

PS. I have a confession. I didn’t read short stories much before I met Max, but good lord. They really rip your heart out and put it back in again.

PPS. If you’ve already read his book and want the prints, go leave a review on Amazon, and Max will send you the prints for free!
HEAR THAT. There’s a way to guarantee getting free prints in your mailbox!

    Bought the e-version for my iPod and was late for work because I literally could not stop reading. You and Max are phenomenal writers and inspire me with your honesty and your real, raw perspective on this broken world that we live in. Please, don’t ever stop what you’re doing, God is using you in such huge ways that you’ll probably never know how far your influence has reached. Thank you.

    Sooo, I bought the digital versions right away, and I left a review on Amazon (which Max posted on facebook and made my life) to get the extra short story. And I’m probably going to write another review because I love and adore the book so much and I want the prints so bad.
