What electrifies me? You! I have been utterly, deeply inspired and moved by the response to my book giveaway. Thank you, everyone, for sharing your passions, for sharing what makes you tick as writers and women, for giving me windows into your lives, into your fiery, electric hearts. I so loved reading about how you are inspired by truth, by connection, by food, by the body, by nature, by music, by adversity, by humor, by the writers who came before you. If you haven’t had a chance to read through the pages of comments at the original post, I highly recommend it...your words drive home what a powerful and beautiful community She Writes is. I am grateful and humbled to be part of it, to bear witness to such brave voices.

She Writes selected five winners at random:

--Barbara Shallue wins the Grand Prize: a copy of The Book of Dead Birds and a rare physical galley of The Book of Live Wires (along with Live Wires in ebook format).
--Shawn Marie Latorre wins a rare physical edition of The Book of Live Wires (plus the ebook).
--Linda Gunther, Lynne Favreau and Katherine E. Hinkson all win ebooks of The Book of Live Wires.

Congratulations! If the winners could please message me with your email (and home address, if applicable), I’ll get your prizes to you right away.

And as a thank you to everyone who entered, and to the She Writes community for your general awesomeness, if you use the code VX67W when you order The Book of Live Wires at Smashwords, you can get the book in the e-format of your choice for only $1.99.

Thank you again for your electrifying response to this giveaway. I wish you all a continuous lightning shower of inspiration in your writing lives and beyond.
