Win! Old books. New life.

You've heard me prattle on about 
Ex Libris Anonymous
— my very favorite journal company — and now, just when I think I can't be any more in love, my heart grows another chamber. 

Jacob Storm Deatherage, the creative genius who turns vintage books into one-of-a-kind journals, is not only innovative but generous, too.  He's sent me SIX fabulous journals to give away.

I'm spreading the book journal love. 

To win one of these wonderful book journals, simply add your name in the comment section below. On Friday, August 27, 2010, I'll place all names in a hat and randomly pick six winners.  Winning is that easy  — and I'll pay the postage. Not only will you get a free journal, but you'll also receive real, handwritten mail in your old-fashioned mailbox. It's a double win, really.

What will you do with your journal? Sketch, paint, collage? Write songs, poems, stories, confessions? Just think, this journal could enhance your joy, feed your spirit, and change your life!

The possibilities begin NOW!

i would love to win one of these journals. I love the idea of using the old book covers--even though I can never tear apart a book, no matter how old it is! I love your writing and will be exploring your blog further. Thank you for your generosity!

Oh, I love it! Crossing my fingers :). I just found your website by way of a shout out to your contest on "Book of Kells" blog. I will definitely be coming back again and adding you to the list of writer blogs on my website. Always great to find another writer in the blogosphere.
