Giveaway! Giveaway! Giveaway!


Here we are, at the barest edge of the fall season (at least in this hemisphere) and what could be better when the weather turns than sitting next to an open window with a nice hot cup of coffee, wrapped up in a something soft and cozy, reading a book of poetry? Bliss!

I’m here to help you make at least part of that picture happen… that’s right, readers! I am giving away a FREE copy of my chapbook No Direction But Home to one lucky commenter!

Here’s the deal:
* leave a plain old boring comment on this post (one comment = one entry to win)
* OR leave a comment in the form of a rhyming couplet on this post (one rhyming couplet = TWO entries to win)
* comments will remain open until Wednesday, August 28th at 8PM PST
* the winning entry will be drawn from a box (I don’t own a hat – too much hair!)
* the winner will be notified via email! no worries if you don’t have a wordpress account – you will be prompted to enter an email address when you enter a comment (no one will see your email except me and I solemnly swear it will not be shared or used for nefarious purposes)
* out of the country? that’s ok too! if you happen to be one of my British, Australian, or other overseas readers, don’t let that keep you from entering
* sorry, but the mug and the lovely handknit alpaca scarf are NOT a part of the giveaway (you wouldn’t want the scarf anyway – it sheds like the dickens); I WILL however throw in a fabulous bookmark from ALL CAPS PUBLISHING
* GOOD LUCK! and do be sure to check out the other great authors over at ALL CAPS PUBLISHING

Just to clarify: a “Like” does not constitute a valid entry – you must leave a comment to enter


  1. Dear Sarah, that is very generous of you to do. I’m not good at rhyming as you may know by now. πŸ™‚ If I do not win that is no problem at all, for I will for sure buy your book! I love reading your poetry.
    groetjes, Francina


  2. Dearest Sarah, I am planning on buying your book but if I win so much the better. You are so talented, I know the book will be another feather in you cap. Noreen


  3. How exciting….you are published. The book cover is lovely and I am sure that the inside will make for good, relaxing reading. Perhaps a scarf will end up around the reader’s shoulders.


  4. Hi Sarah,

    I have just found you via Francina, who has put your book on her blog. I was going to comment anyway, regardless of the book offer that I have just seen! As soon as I saw the name of your blog I recognised it; I have seen your comments on a good friend’s blog, Belfastt David. So I thought I would pop over and visit you to say congratulations on your book and o click the “follow” button! πŸ™‚

    Best wishes


  5. If Sarah Whiteley’s book I had,
    I’d read it, send it to my poet dad.

    Geez…you didn’t say anything about judging the couplet on quality, right? I started with “there once was a giveaway chapbook…” but it’s too early in the morning. I think you should give three chances to win to anyone who can write that limerick. πŸ™‚


  6. Thanks to Francina I have found your blog and your lovely book. What a beautiful cover. I will get my special scarf out and settle down to have a good read. “Here’s to you and all your writing holds in store, Scarves aplenty and your readers left wanting more.” Jane x
