Taking it to the next level

A little while ago I mentioned that I published a book, it is called To Leah, With Love. I have a link to it here on my blog. That was a big step for me, and now I am ready to take another big step and take my book to the next level.
The truth is I'm not even sure what that really means. But these are a few things I've done...A couple of weeks ago I took some of my books to a local LDS Bookstore, The Brass Plates. I made a blog that is just about my book. Go check it out by clicking here.  I have sent a few copies out to publishers. And I will be in Utah September 23rd through the 27th to try and talk to some more people about it. I am excited but also incredibly nervous. I don't take rejection well, so I've been working on developing some thick skin.
So here is what I am asking of my fabulous, faithful readers to help me take it to the next level...
I've decided to make it worth your while by having a GIVEAWAY! The rules are these:
Do a post about about me and my book and make sure you put a link to my website http://www.toleahwithlove.blogspot.com/.
Leave a nice, supportive comment on my book blog.
This must happen by Thursday September 15th. Then I will enter you in a drawing for a copy of my book and an extra little somethin', somethin'. There will be two winners just to add a little more excitement!
Thank you in advance for your kind support!

Good luck in Utah.
