Read my review of the book.

I thought Sex Trafficking by Siddharth Kara was such an important book that I decided to have a giveaway contest for my copy. Due to shipping costs, this contest is for USA residents only.

To enter the giveaway:

1) you can twitter me saying "@genrereviewer Enter me to win INSIDE THE BUSINESS OF MODERN SLAVERY. The author supports _______." Include the name of the organization to which the author donates a portion of the money made from the sale of this book. (Hint: This information is in the book description section of my review.)


2) You can leave a comment to this post asking to be entered and giving the name of the organization dedicated to freeing slaves.

The winner will be randomly selected. I'll announce the winner at noon (Central Time, Daylight Savings Time) on July 16th 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!

Free the Slaves

This book is a very important step in this battle. Now it needs to be publicized harder and louder... this is an issue near and dear to my brother's heart. I am going to have to tell him about this book if he hasn't already come across it.

Thank you - Miranda
