So, if you're just joining us, here's the recap: my new novel All Fall Down is currently on a blog tour (it ends on Tuesday) and you can click here for all the stops if you want to. Some of those interviews and top ten lists were FUNNY (if I do say so myself.) Also, the book is on sale for Kindle users through tomorrow. And I'm offering seven prizes for the tour.
Two of the prizes are Book Lovers Baskets. This consists of a hand-tied lap blanket, my favorite hot chocolate mixes, and a print copy of my book. This is what the last one I did looked like:
But, I thought that the drink mixes looked very far away so I tried again and put them closer to the book
But then I noticed that the flash was reflecting in the book. So I tried again and angled the camera.
This one didn't turn out too badly. You can't see the back of the quilt as well, (and yes, I have done "guy" ones, but I loved the ladybug one for this particular winner so that's what I did.) I never heard back from that winner, though, so maybe she hated it. Or maybe she was so overwhelmed with basket love as soon as she set eyes on it she couldn't speak or type. (I choose the second one.) But I really do hope she got it and she's enjoying it this winter. :)
And in case you were wondering what my children were doing while I was busy finishing the quilt and taking pictures, here's a hint. My little boy loves markers. A lot. And he apparently wanted a fake tan.
That's not as easy to get off as you might think. Luckily, he's normally wearing pants and you can hardly see the faded marker now.
So, if you would like to have this amazing prize that I pour my heart and soul into just for you, you can go here to enter the rafflecopter giveaway and read the latest interview about my inner writer workings.
