Giveaway: Hornet Plus Three

Hornet Plus Three

Hornet Plus Three:
The Story of the Apollo 11 Recovery
by Bob Fish

Hardback: 213 pages
Publisher: Creative Minds Press
Released: June 2009

Read my review to learn more about the book.

I've been following the current space missions on Twitter by following the astronauts @Astro_Mike (who is now back from the Hubble Telescope mission) and @Astro_127 (who is going up to the space station on July 11). So I jumped at the chance to review Hornet Plus Three by Bob Fish.

I enjoyed this book so much that I asked the publisher if they'd ship one free copy of this book to the winner of a giveaway I held here. They kindly agreed.

This contest is for USA residents only.

To enter the giveaway:

1) you can twitter me saying, "@genrereviewer please enter me to win 'Hornet Plus Three: The Story of the Apollo 11 Recovery'" Anyone doing this Twitter option will be awarded 2 entry points.

You can also twitter about this book giveaway using your own words. Be creative, but please refer to what the book is about and include the following link to this page: http://tr.im/oHbp. Then tweet me directly at @genrereviewer telling me you've done this and wish to enter. Anyone doing this Twitter option will be awarded 3 entry points (i.e. an increased chance to win because you're helping promote the book).


2) You can leave a comment to this post asking to be entered in the giveaway.

Anyone who simply leaves a comment asking to be entered will be given 2 entry points. If you include a link to your blog or website where you've told people about this contest, you'll received 3 entry points.

(Note: I slightly changed one of the so far unused ways to enter because I realized it was self-defeating.)

The winner will be randomly selected. I'll announce the winner at noon (Central Time, Daylight Savings Time) on June 25th on this blog. If you entered using twitter, I'll send you a @ or DM telling you of your win and asking where to send the book. If you entered using the blog comments, you'll need to leave your e-mail address or check back to see if you won so you can e-mail me your shipping address.

I hope everyone has fun with this!
