      Rafflecopter support is working to figure out why some of you are having trouble with their Rafflecopter widget. Sorry to those of you who’ve experienced this. I’ll make sure to add you manually regardless of what Rafflecopter is able to tweak the widget.

      UPDATE: If you’re having trouble with the Rafflecopter widget after your first entry, try refreshing your browser between each entry. Or, try logging out of the Rafflecopter account then logging back in.

      if we cannot access Rafflecopter, do we send the ms. on gmail as an attachment or as part of the main body? Sorry to bother. Am ready to submit.
      Thanks again for this opportunity.

      Do not send me your manuscript, Sheila. The only manuscript I will see is the winning one, and that’s after I contact the winner. To enter, use the Rafflecopter to enter you name and from that I’ll determine a winner using Rafflecopter’s random-selection tool. If the Rafflecopter widget isn’t working for you, you can send me an email telling me which entries you’ve done but can’t register: Basic Entry, Post on Twitter, Follow on Twitter, Follow on Facebook. I’ll manually input your name into the Rafflecopter program.

      You’ll be at the summer conference in Los Angeles? Excellent! I hope you’ll holler my way in the halls so we can say hey.

      Thanks so much for the opportunity. The Rafflecopter doesn’t seem to be allowing any but the first entry though… Even with refreshing.

      Try logging out of Rafflecopter then logging in again between entries. If that doesn’t work, shoot me an email and I’ll get enter your entry manually, Kate.

      Hi Deborah! I always love your giveaways! Thank you! I’m having difficulty with the Rafflecopter widget. It won’t scroll down so I can continue with the other entries and it’s not registering the tweet I sent. I’ve logged out and in again, and have tried to refresh the page after each entry. Any suggestions? Thanks! Lisa 🙂

      Send me an email, Lisa, and let me know which other entries you should have and I’ll input them manually. 🙂
