It’s my birthday! Do what I say!

Today is my birthday!  To celebrate, I’ve got interviews in BookPage magazine, Literary Rambles, and a wonderful Peter Nimble review from librarian blogger Hip Mama Jenn.1  Did YOU forget to get me a gift?  No worries!  Here are three easy gifts I would LOVE to receive …

GIFT #1:  Your presence at my Book Launch Party tomorrow!  This Thursday, Abrams is throwing a Peter Nimble party at Books of Wonder in New York.  Mary and I will be there with bells on.  If you’re in the area please, please, please come! There will be snacks and sparking wine and giveaways and readings and books!  Bring friends! Click the flyer for details –>



GIFT #2:  Your hilarious thieving confession for the #GreatestThiefWhoEverLived Kindle giveaway.  If you want to enter to win a free Kindle with a copy of Peter Nimble loaded onto it, all you have to do is follow these three easy steps:2 

1)  Follow me on Twitter.  (click here)

2)  Re-Tweet this contest announcement. (click here)

3)  Post a tweet sharing the awesomest thing you’ve ever stolen (or wish you could steal)!  You MUST include the following hashtag: #GreatestThiefWhoEverLived


GIFT #3:   Your short Amazon review for Peter Nimble!  You don’t have to be a fancy critic. You don’t even have to say nice things (… but please do!).  Just write a short review for Amazon, Goodreads, or Barnes & Noble.  I’m giving away free T-Shirts to five randomly-selected reviewers at the end of the month.  Every review you submit counts as an entry, so you can improve your odds 1,000,000% by doing all three.3


  1. Please note that these interviews also are giving away free copies of Peter Nimble, just click here and here to enter!
  2. It’s seriously worth checking out the previous entries, which are amazing and funny! For full rules and information about the Kindle giveaway, click here.

    Happy birthday! You share the day with the great illustrator LeUyen Pham. To celebrate I’ll do 2 of the 3 things you requested.

    Wow – Happy Birthday and congrats on the book launch. I tweeted and shared the awesomest thing I wish I could steal.

  • theplushgourmet says:

    I already DO follow you, silly! I’m a big booster on twitter as your book is going to be HUGE. How do I know this? Because I want to read it and I am a finicky reader.

    HAPPY Birthday :)

    I’m in agreement with theplushgourmet!

    If borders (going out of business) still has copies of Peter Nimble, I think I’m going to buy one for myself tomorrow: I have to have surgery next week (!!) and I need some recuperation reading.

    Hope you had a fantastic birthday! and have a blast at your launch party on the 11th – will you post some photos??? I’ve always wanted to go to Books of Wonder…

    Happiest of birthdays and most marvelous of years to you!

  • Hope your birthday was happy! I’ll post a review of your book on my site and LibraryThing this evening. I tried hard, but I couldn’t think of anything that I’ve stolen! I’ll tweet your contest anyway. ;) Best wishes, Lisa
