2/10/12: Book By You Giveaway

CONTEST CLOSED:  CONGRATULATIONS TO AILEEN
I love personalized items.  Personalized books are also a hit in our family.  The kids love to read and see their names mentioned.  
I am happy to share with you personalized books from Book By You!  Read on to win a book of your own!
Recently we have seen Peter Pan 360 and Peter Pan with Cathy Rigby so I thought what better book to personalize for the kids than Peter Pan.  My daughter Lauren has all the feistiness of Tinker Bell and loves her so I thought she would get a kick out of being Tinker Bell in the book as Lauren Bell!  My son Evan is of course Peter Pan (Evan Pan) I am Wendy, and my husband John is John (of course).
Here is an excerpt (personalized characters are not in bold in the book, just shown here for emphasis):
“Second to the right, and straight on till morning...”
      While the children had started flying toward the island, Evan Pan had let Lauren Bell sleep on his shoulder, but now he wakened her and sent her on in front. Sometimes he poised himself in the air, listening intently, with his hand to his ear, and again he would stare down with brown eyes so bright that they seemed to bore two holes to earth.
      His courage was almost appalling. “Would you like an adventure now,” he said casually to Gilda, “or would you like to have your tea first?”
     Gilda said “tea first” quickly, and her little brother Michael pressed her hand in gratitude, but the braver John hesitated.“What kind of adventure?” he asked cautiously.

 What features can you personalize:
Each novel has a unique cast of characters to personalize, with names, eye colors, hair colors and styles, and more! You select the featured names (displayed on the front cover for paperbacks, and on the first page of hardcovers) and add a dedication. You even have the option to upload a photo for the back cover!  You can even preview your personalized book and have it emailed to you to decide if you like it.
Of course they have more than kid's books.  There is Romance by You which was even featured on The View.
 

Or Mystery by You.
Or Teen books, here is one for those Twilight fans.
As one of my lucky readers you have the chance to win a Personalized Book from Book By You, you will get a Gift Certificate for any paperback - Classic, Teen, Mystery, Romance or Kids.
