    I would love a copy of Pig Candy. I’m an avid reader and have a few books on my night stand just waiting on me…I’d love to had Pig Candy. Being in school and working full-time doesn’t leave much time, but when I get a break I’m on a reading tear.

    Thanks so much for posting. You’re number 4, so no free PC this time, but who knows….it’s fun to run the contest, so maybe I’ll do it again in a month or so!

    Thank heavens I already have a copy of Pig Candy and have read it. Evelyn–go buy a copy. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want all your friends to read it, too.

    In a shameless effort to win a copy – even though I already have one (signed!) I am going to test this site and rush it with messages.

    I loved the book, and when I was telling my friends, David Bajo and ELise Blackwell about it, I discovered they know you, albeit peripherally through the writers’ circuit. I’d love to send them the book.

    So my entry is “awaiting moderation”. I have no idea what that means. I’ve never responded to a blog before. It may be too technical for me. I have no idea how Evelyn is number 4 when she is listed as number 2 here. It could be a shallow learning curve.

    I am sad not to be #10 (this reminds me of the old days when we used to try to win tix on the radio), but the book sounds lovely. Must read. Will read.

    Is this even a blog? or just a website that links to the blog? I am guessing moderation means a response. If this is true, then I am now awaiting moderation on that question.

    Am I anywhere near number 10?

    It is twenty years since I spent my days wasting away pasting-up cable guides under the direction of Ms. Fundergburg, but there are passages in PC that are classic Lise story telling and bring me right back to those cramped quarters at Crosby Vandenberg when I would look forward to Lise’s strolls through the paste-up gallery. She could be counted on to liven us up with a story or comment in which she would share some humorous take on life.

    Hello!!! I hope I can win Pig Candy!!! I want to read it….I know Lise from the long-gone days of the good AVENUE…am I a winner

    Hi Steven! Alas, you’re #9, and the remaining giveaways are for #10 and #20. But thanks for entering. And, while it’s not the same as free, pre-order online discounts at the big book retailers comes pretty close.

    Thanks for posting Araldia, and yes, it’s just a domestic contest, but I’m glad you like the site!

    Thanks for posting. You’re #12, so no free copy, but hope you find a copy somewhere, and let us know what you think once you’ve read the book!

    You’re #10, so you win an autographed copy of the new Pig Candy paperback. Send your snail mail address to, and expect your book to arrive in the next few weeks (its actual publication date is May 12, but there may well be some early copies). Enjoy the book, and please let me know what you think of it.

    Thanks for posting. You’re #13, so unfortunately you don’t win this time around. The contest may happen again in a month or two, so if you haven’t yet bought a copy, try back!
