LULA'S BREW by ME - GIVEAWAY!

Just in time for Halloween, I'm giving away a free hard cover copy of LULA'S BREW, signed and dedicated to your favorite witchie!!!
Lula's Aunties want her to be a witch like them. But Lula would rather study cookbooks than spell books (and hates to fly on a broom). Lula wants to be a famous chef. In desperation, the Aunties insist she try to make one last potion. Lula secretly adds her cooking flair and creates a brew that bewitches the entire town, including her Aunties!
     This fun rhyming tale transcends the typical Halloween story to appeal to cooks and "foodies" throughout the year.
     I usually host other people's books with interviews and giveaways on Thursdays. Well, this Thursday the giveaway is mine. And I'll share some tidbits about LULA'S BREW...

     Did you know that artwork from my original LULA'S BREW dummy won me a Grand Prize in the SmartWriters.com competition? I got a trophy and everything!


     Did you know that LULA'S BREW was an APP before it was a book? Yup, one of the very first children's picture book apps for the iPhone and later for the iPad. I even did the voice for the apps! (And learned that it's a bad idea to eat salty food before doing a voice recording.)
     I wrote an article about my experiences with Lula for the SCBWI Bulletin (the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators): "My 1st iPhone/iPad Picture Book App." I gave talks at conferences and even did some very high-tech school visits. LULA'S BREW was cutting edge back then.

     Did you know that as an app, LULA'S BREW was downloaded over 10,000 times? Not too shabby, eh? I'm proud - yes indeedy.


     Did you know that LULA'S BREW is available not only in hard cover and paperback, but also for the iPhone, iPad, Kindle, Kindle Fire, Nook, and as a pdf? CLICK HERE for links to them all.

     Did you know that LULA'S BREW is still breaking new ground with Xist Publishing's publishing model? All of Xist's printed books are are produced using print-on-demand resources. (They aren't actually produced until orders are placed.) It cuts down on waste, warehousing, and may be the wave of the future for publishing. This is definitely something to keep an eye on!


     Did you know that one of my best fan emails ever was from a mom whose little girl dressed up as Lula for Halloween? BREAK my heart to little pieces!!! OMG!

     Did you know I have LULA'S BREW coloring pages, a word-find puzzle, computer wallpaper, and the actual recipe for Lula's Brew? Yup - CLICK HERE!


GIVEAWAY
     I am giving away a FREE signed and dedicated copy of LULA'S BREW along with a bookmark and coloring pages to one of my commenters! (Must live in the continental US to win.) Sign up below...

Ooh, I'd love an autographed copy, but I'm sure there are plenty of kids who'd like one too. I was one of those lucky people who got to hear about the app when it first came out.
