If you have a kid in the house who likes to read, he/she can win a free book (featuring my story “The Diver”) from Blooming Tree Press. All your child has to do is write a short essay (even a paragraph) on “What I Did on my Summer Vacation” and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will get a copy of the anthology Summer Shorts, which is a collection of short stories about summer. The winning entries will also be read at the book launch party. Apparently this is open to kids anywhere in the world. For more details, have a look at editor Madeline Smoot’s blog.
