Paying it Forward Giveaway by Tracy Holczer

It's a new cover!
It's paperback release day!! And in celebration of what the kidlit universe has given me over the last year, I'd like to return the gesture, so I'm going to give away some stuff. And because I am pushing the last few miles in the marathon that has been Book 2, I need some inspiration to carry me over the finish line!! Write your favorite inspirational quote in the comments section and you will be entered to win:

1. Any book of your choice (really, any book. go crazy) and a paperback copy of The Secret Hum of a Daisy.


2. Any book of your choice, a paperback copy of The Secret Hum of a Daisy AND a critique of the first three chapters of your middle grade novel or query letter.


3. Any book of your choice, a paperback copy of The Secret Hum of a Daisy AND a free Skype visit with moi for your book club/students/poker night/whathaveyou.

And here is my quote for youse (and me):

"Confidence is a choice. It isn’t a feeling that will come along one day, after you’ve accomplished stuff, and knock you in the head. It’s about making a decision to change your behavior and then making that decision over and over and over again for the rest of your life or until you don’t have to think about it anymore."--Toni McGee Causey


  1. My quote for the year is for my students:
    "Stop making people feel bad for liking things that make them happy." Wouldn't that be a wonderful world?

  2. Reach for the moon, the worst that can happen
    is you will fall among the stars.

  3. Mine is that long ago taught but now forgotten Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." less poetic terms, Treat others as you wish to be treated.
    This is a great give-away Tracy. LOVE your book!

  4. This one has kept me persevering: "Never allow a person to tell you 'no' who doesn't have the power to say 'yes.'" ~Eleanor Roosevelt.

  5. "You must do the thing you think you cannot do."

  6. Margaret Atwood - Don't be afraid of failure. A ratio of failures is built into the process of writing. The wastebasket has evolved for a reason.
