    Done! A fantastic contest for a fantastic book. :)

  • David Alexander February 26, 2013, 2:10 am

    Done, hopefully that goes through, it’s difficult to see how much gets pasted into that little text box though.

  • Quinn February 26, 2013, 6:41 am

    Thanks, Linda and Diana…perfect timing for a kick in the butt!

  • Luana Spinetti | WritersMind.eu February 26, 2013, 7:48 am

    What an amazing contest! I’m afraid I can’t enter at this time — because PayPal takes two days to withdraw money to my credit card, so it would be too late — but those are some memorable prizes. :D You always outdo yourself, Linda!

    Good luck to all participants!

    ~ Luana S.

    P.S. I have a paperback copy of your book and this contest made me want to reread it cover to cover. ;)

    • Linda Formichelli February 26, 2013, 7:49 am

      Luana, go ahead and enter anyway! Paste whatever receipt you get into the receipt box. I’ll make sure you get in. Thanks!

      • Luana Spinetti | WritersMind.eu February 26, 2013, 8:03 am

        Linda, you’re so generous! But I bought my paperback copy from an eBay seller back in October 2011 so I’m not sure that’s even eligible. :)

        • Linda Formichelli February 26, 2013, 8:04 am

          Oh, I see! Yes, this contest is for the Kindle version only. Sorry!

          • Luana Spinetti | WritersMind.eu February 26, 2013, 8:12 am

            No problem! I’ll see if I can get my fianc? to grab a Kindle copy for me. :) If not, I’ll have to pass.

            Thanks anyway!

    Thanks for this contest! I keep circling back around to writing (I have one regular gig along with a 7 day-per-week job and 2 other part time jobs). No matter how busy I get, the writing keeps coming to the surface. Love how the book makes it OK to be where I am while showing me ways to move forward at my own pace.

  • Jody February 26, 2013, 10:04 am

    Entered… and highly considering the class…

  • Ami February 26, 2013, 10:13 am

    For some reason I didn’t get an email receipt. Maybe because I did a 1-click purchase? Can I email you a screenshot of my Kindle Purchases page so you can see I bought it today?

    • Linda Formichelli February 26, 2013, 10:31 am

      Absolutely! Or just write in a note in that space letting me know — that will be fine. Thanks for entering!

  • Renee Roberson February 26, 2013, 10:39 am

    I pasted my order details from my Amazon page. And I accidentally hit the button twice on the purchased button on RaffleCopter, but only bought one version of the e-book. Sorry about that:)

    • Linda Formichelli February 26, 2013, 10:41 am

      No problem! I’ll work it out. Thanks for buying and entering the contest!

  • Janet Hartman February 26, 2013, 3:08 pm

    I didn’t get anything that said “receipt” either, so I copy and pasted the invoice. I don’t know why it still says “pending” when my Kindle received it awhile ago.

  • Stacy February 26, 2013, 5:26 pm

    Hi Linda! I just picked up my copy and cannot wait to read it right now! This is a great giveaway and a win-win for everyone!

    Thanks for always helping us :)

  • Suz. February 26, 2013, 6:26 pm

    I love this book and was glad to write a (positive!) review for Amazon- I never got around to doing it when after I ordered the print copy of the book.

    I copied and pasted something or other that was on my Kindle account page, though just now, hours later,I received an e-mail confirmation, which is what I should have sent you, but I panicked when I didn’t have the e-mail right away, so I sent the other thing. Jeez Louise, I sound crazy!

  • Dawn Witzke February 26, 2013, 6:33 pm

    Only I could mess up an entry to a contest. ;) I went to cut and paste and only got the order # and not the rest of the receipt. Of course I accidently hit enter before I could fix it.

    I’ve been waiting for this to come out on Kindle. My paper copy is about worn out.

    • Linda Formichelli February 26, 2013, 6:35 pm

      Don’t worry, you’re in! I’ll be personally reviewing entries so I can see little snafus like that and make sure all goes OK.

  • Dera Williams February 26, 2013, 7:15 pm

    I just purchased and sent my receipt. I hope I did it right. I also tweeted– I think. I don’t go on there much. Better check.

  • Valerie Federoff February 26, 2013, 7:26 pm

    I just bought the book following your link. Where do I enter my name and email? I also shared my purchase on twitter and facebook. What is the time limit for reviewing the book?

    • Linda Formichelli February 27, 2013, 2:36 pm

      Hi, Valerie~ I apologize I missed your questions! If you didn’t get a chance to enter, email me and to make it up to you I’ll send you some of my other e-books gratis.

  • Valerie February 26, 2013, 9:24 pm

    Great contest! Glad to have the kindle version of your book. :)

  • Jocelyn Orozco February 27, 2013, 12:20 am

    Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to win these great prizes, but mostly for taking the time to write this book and helping others!

  • Joe February 27, 2013, 2:50 am

    I was already planning on buying this book last week but when I saw the contest I figured whats one more week. Let’s see if my patience is rewarded!
