Contest — chance to win $50!

If it’s as hot where you are as it is here in Texas, then you need something to lift those spirits. So I hope this contest will.

Lookin’ Back, Texas arrived in stores yesterday! I’ve heard from lots of folks that they’ve already seen it on bookshelves across the country. To celebrate, I’m running a contest to get the word out! You have the chance to win a $50 prepaid card that could be used at most grocery stores, book stores or even gas stations! (Man, we could all use a little relief in that area, couldn’t we?) Here’s the lowdown:
