Happy Birthday SOAP, SOAP, SOAP!!
...Drum Roll Please!...
Today we're sticking around Dulemba.com to celebrate the birthday of my first picture book as both author and illustrator, SOAP, SOAP, SOAP and SOAP, SOAP, SOAP ~ JABON, JABON, JABON!
And we're giving some books away!!!! Hubbie helped pick the winner from our first drawing way back in August (thanks so much to everybody for all the nice comments!), and the winner of a free, signed copy of SOAP, SOAP, SOAP ~ JABON, JABON, JABON (she asked for bilingual) is . . . Paula Chan!!!!
Yip, yip, yahoooooo!!!!! Congratulations Paula!
Paula won by watching my SOAP Book Trailer and leaving a comment. Let's give it a celebratory gander, shall we?
There's still more chances to win!!

2. Leave a comment on every day of the book tour at my blog each day (September 20 - October 2nd) and at least 8 of the blogs I visit, to have your name go into a drawing to win a SUPER PRIZE PACK including two signed copies of SOAP (one for you and one for a friend or your favorite library), a COLORING PAGE TUESDAY coloring book, SOAPy bookmarks and postcards, and a rubber duckie keychain!!!! (Deadline to leave comments will be October 4th and the winner will be announced as soon as I figure it all out.)
