Here’s a fun contest, especially for writers! My friend, Donna Welch Earnhardt, is running a contest for her new picture book, Being Frank. The book has gotten great reviews. Here’s what Publishers Weekly had to say about Being Frank:
“Newcomer Earnhardt makes her point with solid pacing and lots of laughs. . . . Italian illustrator Castellani’s digital artwork is crisp, colorful, and energetic. . . . While Frank might not persuade sharp-tongued children to mend their ways, the story provides a useful array of good ways to deliver bad news.” â€”Publishers Weekly (September 17, 2012)
As you can see, Frank is a young boy who believes honesty is the best policy…but he knows nothing about tact and kindness. Have you ever had anyone like that in your life?
Now you have the opportunity to write about your own experience with a Frankly Frank and have a chance to win a free book in the process! Simply visit Donna’s blog post, leave a comment telling of a time you were too honest for your own good or someone was too honest with you, and you’ll be in the drawing. Share the blog and contest with others and you’ll get TWO entries! (I’m going to be in Alaska at the time of the drawing, so I’ve asked her not to include my name.)
So what are you waiting for? Think of a time when being frankly frank might not have been the best way to handle things, then head on over to Donna’s blog and leave a comment, telling the story. You could be the winner!
And remember, the Bible says “…gracious words are a honeycomb.” Proverbs 16:24.
