500 Nail Designs Book Giveaway! Enter to Win an Advanced Copy!

Good evening everyone! I have such exciting news for you: the advanced copies of my book have come in and I'm sitting here with an actual physical copy of my very own book on my desk right now. But perhaps even more exciting (for you, anyway) is that my publisher has allowed me to give away one of the advanced copies to one of my very lucky readers!! Keep reading for more information on how to enter!


In case you haven't been around here long, last spring/summer I created 500 nail art designs for this book titled 500 Nail Designs. This was a huge project and came at the time when I was in my last few months of college, so it required a lot of time and commitment. Luckily, the publishing company that I'm working with is absolutely amazing and guided me through the entire process with patience and geniune excitement for the book. Fast forward to today, when I finally get to touch and hold the object that was previously only accessible in my mind. I can't find the words to express how thankful I am for this opportunity or how much it means to me, but I truly am so grateful.


Now for the giveaway rules:
You must be a resident of the United States, Canada, or United Kingdom.
You must be 18 or older to enter, or have parental consent.
You must complete the mandatory entries on the Rafflecopter widget below.
Please note that Fair Winds Press will be shipping the prize directly to the winner.
Good luck!

  53. CONGRATS! What an awesome accomplishment. I have seen this book may be on another blog and I immediately called my bff and said OMG this is gonna be an awesome book! I want it so bad!

    Ok on to the dream, I am disabled with CFS and Fibromyalgia and the last 2 years have been especially bad. I LOVE decorating. LOVE IT! My athestic is modern and mid century modern. I have collected and stored quite a few pieces over the years. I am praying my SS disability is finally granted so I can get proper healthcare. Eventually my dream is to redo, and I mean strip to the studs, my home and then redecorate. This was my Mema's house and my Mom also grew up here. It is very very special to me. It was built in 1947 and it is original. The kitchen faucet comes out of the wall! It needs new plumbing, electrical, kitchen, bath, central a/c. EVERYTHING! It may take me the rest of my life but that is my dream! Wow I wrote a novel. Sorry!!! I am in bed alot and when I think about the house it gives me hope and I get excited. Now if my body would cooperate. Good Luck All!
