A kindly woman by the name of Debdatta Dasgupta Sahay, who admits to being a book addict from India (and also a site host for my first book blog tour a few years ago), decided that there should be an International Author’s Day to celebrate authors. On her web site, she says that she was shocked to learn there wasn’t a day to celebrate authors and that she wanted “to show her appreciation for the hours of hard work that authors put into their books.” She asked authors to join her in the celebration on July 18. And she suggested we post something on or around July 14. So here `tis!
As part of celebrating International Author’s Day…. the badge for which is here…
…I am giving away a free, autographed copy of the paperback version of Something Furry Underfoot, my humorous touching memoir about a whole bunch of pets. All you have to do to enter to win a free copy of Something Furry Underfoot–which, by the way, is averaging 4.7 stars out of 5 on Amazon.com– is comment on this blog posting. That’s all there is to it. One winner will be selected on July 18.
But wait, there’s more!
