In a little over seven weeks, my sweet mother will be drawing the winner of the Ultimate Book Club Getaway contest, and I’ve got to be honest with you—I’m ecstatic! If you don’t know about the contest it’s a chance for book clubs to win a four night stay at my beach house on the Isle of Palms, SC. All clubs are eligible. You don’t have to read The Wisdom of Hair to enter, but if your club does, you get ten extra entries! I’ve sprinkled pics of just a few of the clubs who have entered throughout this blog entry, and by the looks of it, they’re as excited as I am!
When I got the idea about the contest, I emailed my agent, Kevan Lyon, who said I was either crazy or brilliant. I think the jury is still out on that, but I’ve visited a lot of book clubs since my debut novel came out, and there isn’t one that I didn’t think, “Who in their right ming wouldn’t want to spend a weekend on the Isle of Palms with these girls!”
I’ve got entries from as far away as Texas, from clubs with four members and clubs with over thirty members. All Mama has to do is draw that name, then we’ll hammer out a date that works for all of us.
If your club wins and you’ve never been to the Isle of Palms, you’re in for a real treat. It’s a beautiful, sleepy little beach town AND Charleston in all her romantic and historic glory is just twenty minutes away! Amazing beaches, even more amazing restaurants. It truly doesn’t get any better than the fabulous Lowcountry and the IOP! Y’all come!
So if you haven’t entered, stop reading this and click HERE! And if you have, good luck!
