I’m Going Rogue and Giving Away

When the Smack Dab group decided on our June theme, I had a choice: Either write the full story of how I decided to become an author and pretty much give away half my school visit presentation (it’s a fairly captivating story; at least parts of it are) or go rogue. Okay, so it wasn’t a choice.

There was a compromise, however. I could answer a tangential question, one I’m asked during about 1 of every 4 visits.
Q: How long will you keep writing books?
A: As long as it keeps being fun.

It’s still fun, the best job ever, especially when a new book finally moves out into the world. And that just happened for me. The second book in The Gollywhopper Games series, The New Champion came out 6, count ‘em, 6 years and 3 ½ months after the original book hit the shelves. Why did it take that long? That’s implied in the acknowledgments (you can see them here on my personal blog).

Due to life, I didn’t get the chance to have a real launch this time, so help me celebrate now. If you’re in the mood, go ahead and watch this trailer.

Then enter by June 30 to win. I’m giving away 2 packages that each include The Gollywhopper Games (Gollywhopper 1) and The New Champion (Gollywhopper 2) plus an official, can't-get-it-anywhere-else Gollywhopper Games t-shirt. Want in?
A. Enter by Rafflecopter below; OR
B. Follow me on Twitter (@jodyfeldman) then tweet something that makes me know you want in;
C. Comment on my website blog;
D. Take time to do all the above for 3 entries.

Thanks for keeping this fun!
