#ArtLitGiveaway



My wife and I, currently working together on our first joint children's book [The Absolutely Amazing Adventures of Ava Appelsawse], have decided to co-host a giveaway contest. My portion of the prize is a copy of my latest novel, Matters of Convenience.  Erin is contributing an 8 x 10 art print from her Etsy shop to the pot. The winner will have five prints to select a favorite from. Narrowing the number of choices down to five was no easy feat since she is rather prolific with pencil, pen and paintbrush.

Our contest is open only to US residents who are at least 18 years old, and it is being held on Twitter. We don't require that you follow either one of us on there, though it would be nice. To enter, all it takes is a retweet of the tweet that will be pinned as of 7/24 on my Twitter page or the one on Erin's. You can do so daily for the duration of the contest. With a contest entry tweet pinned to both of our accounts (@authorofpatches and @gfillustrator), that means you can make two entries per day.

The contest closes at midnight EST on 8/9/17. A winner will be chosen at random and notified later that day. To claim prizes, reply within 48 hours of notification with choice of art print. If not claimed within that time, we'll do another drawing.

Stay tuned for future giveaways to be hosted by Erin and I on facebook and Instagram. For now, our inaugural contest is open only to those fond of expressing themselves in bursts of 140 characters or less.

Good luck. Regularly spare moments to appreciate art. Happy reading.
