One World One Heart - Free Giveaway

I've just signed up to participate in the One World One Heart campaign. To learn more about this program, go to http://oneworldoneheart.typepad.com/one_worldone_heart/.

Between now and February 11th, leave a comment on this post (including your email address) and let me know if you would like to be entered in the contest. On February 12th, I will randomly select a winner. The prize? Well, since I am a writer, I will write a short story for you. The story will star your favorite child or children as the main character(s). I will ask you some questions about your child and fashion a story wherein he or she saves the day.

Good luck and don't forget to leave your email address so I may contact you.
