2nd Book Giveaway: “My Mixed-Up Berry Blue Summer”


Congratulations to Lydia, who won Tuesday’s giveaway of Jennifer Gennari’s LGBT-inclusive middle-grade book My Mixed-Up Berry Blue Summer. If you didn’t win (or didn’t enter), however, don’t despair. Here’s another chance to do so.

For details about the book, I’ll refer you to Tuesday’s post. Suffice to say here that it is a delightful coming-of-age story about 12-year-old June, who lives in Vermont with her mother and soon-to-be stepmother, just after Vermont has approved civil unions for same-sex couples. Good stuff!

The giveaway:

Leave a comment below about something you like to do with your family during the winter holiday season. I will randomly select the winner from all comments received before 11:59 p.m. ET, December 14, 2012. That’s two days, just to give more folks a chance to enter. See additional rules below.

Bonus giveaway information:

Gennari herself is doing a different, separate giveaway at her blog. If you go leave a comment there by December 14, she’ll send you a personalized, signed bookplate sticker and donate $2 per comment to her local LGBT center, which is doing a lot of anti-bullying work. (I’m not involved with her giveaway at all; just passing on the message.)

Additional rules and restrictions for Mombian giveaway:

U.S. and Canada residents only, please. One entry per person. Don’t worry if your comment is moderated; once I approve it, it will appear based on the time you submitted it. Spam comments, including off-topic or commercial comments, will not count. If you win any one of the two drawings for this book, you cannot play again. (You can leave a comment to participate in the discussion, but I won’t enter you in the drawing.) If you are or have been a paying advertiser (or an employee of a paying advertiser) on Mombian, you can’t play.

You must also leave a valid e-mail address with your comment. Don’t leave a postal address, though. If you win, I’ll contact you by e-mail about shipping. I will then share the winner’s name and postal address with the publicist, for the sole purpose of allowing them to mail you your prize directly.
