If you’re one of the ones playing along on social media, you’ve probably heard of my epic giveaway: to celebrate the impending release of From The Ground Up: How To Build A World That Really Works, aka my non-fiction handbook for writers that looks at the ways geography influences culture. It comes out in about two months (YAY!!), so I’m running a pre-release giveaway, because why not? 🙂
Click through on the graphic to enter for your share in nearly $200 worth of super awesome prizes – and don’t forget that to look for the link at the bottom for ways to earn extra entries 😉
**OPEN INTERNATIONALLY!!! Entries close midnight August 20 Australian EST 🙂 **
