A Chance to Win "Mormon Mishaps and Mischief"

By Cindy Beck

In case you missed Jillayne Clements' post last night, we’re holding a giveaway here at the Writing Fortress. For your edification, let me just tell you what we are not giving away—a llama, Gila monster or night on the town with Burl Ives (which you'd probably appreciate not winning, since he's passed on).

Most, or possibly all of the prizes are real, live, printed-on-the-page books by authors here at the blog.

Unfortunately, the printed-on-the-page book that co-author, Nichole Giles, and I have written (with stories compiled from other great authors as well) won’t be out until December, but we wanted to give our 90 million readers a chance to win it.

What? We don’t have 90 million readers? Okay … 89.9 million.



Our book, Mormon Mishaps and Mischief: Hilarious Stories for Saints, contains humorous, true stories of Latter-day Saints that will have you holding your sides and laughing. It covers everything from bloopers at the pulpit and gaffes at priesthood camp outs to blunders during family home evening. The book makes a great gift for yourself, family, friends, or even a Christmas gift for your home teachers—when they finally show up on December 31.

How do you win a copy of Mormon Mishaps and Mischief? Just leave a comment on this blog entry and we’ll throw you into the random generator … well, not actually throw you, but your name (which will be assigned a number) into the mix and pull a winner two weeks from now, when Nichole posts her thoughts here. That person will win a copy of the book and we’ll send it when Mormon Mishaps and Mischief comes out in December.

Best of luck to each of you!

~ Cindy and Nichole

Cindy, You already know I think you're hilarious, but I thought I'd say it again. You're hilarious.

I'm actually NOT going to enter for a copy, since I'll get one as a contributor, and that will leave this fabulous opportunity for some other lucky reader!

I am addicted to reading and would love a chance to win a free book!!
Thanks!!

Geez. Get my hopes up and then dash them! I was so hoping to win a llama. But I'll settle for your book. Hope I win. :)

Rachelle said...

I'd like to win! I'm so excited for your book!

I would like to add my name to the list above. I'm very curious about this book and am anxious to read it. I know if I don't win a copy I'll just go out and buy it or get it from the library, but I very seldom win anything, and it's fun to be a winner.

LDSPublisher, I may take you up on your desire to win a llama, but you'd have to take the love-crazed billy goat as well. I think they're star-crossed lovers. He sings to her, and the nannies, every (stinkin') morning before the sun rises.

Danyelle Ferguson said...

Ooh - me, me, me!!! I'm so excited about your book. I can't wait for it to come out.

Stephanie Humphreys said...

Can't wait for your book to come out. It's good to beable to laugh at ourselves.

Diony said...

We all know laughter is the best medicine, I could use some! I hope I win your book.

Hey, choose me! Unless, of course, since I'm a contributor, I already get a copy? If that's true, then you can save my chance for another lucky person. But if not . . . And thanks for all the smiles.

Winning isn't everything, but it can be an exciting adventure! Don't ever lose your sense of humor!

Marsha Ward said...

Oh, I'd love a copy of this book. Unless I'm in it and get a copy anyway.

I'd love to take a look
Inside your wondrous book
To laugh awhile
To sit and smile
While Bob's my busy cook.

This sounds fun. I would love to win that. I heard a really funny one when a young girl gave a talk in Sacrament meeting. My ears popped to full attention when she said "...changed in the twinkling of an eye from a state of morality to immorality." I looked around to see if anyone else had noticed it and no one had. Go figure!

Brittany said...

Oh...pick me, pick me!
