I am so very proud of you! I haven't read much of your poetry (I will fix that once I win my autographed copy of your book), however I love your clever blog posts and your tremendous sense of humor that shines through on your facebook statuses.

Just a fan in Sheboygan, Wisconsin

I won a copy of Justin Chin's latest book just like this late last year. If I win, I'll bring your book w/ me to Dallas so you can sign it at the SMU lit fest.

I already purchased a copy, still waiting for it from Amazon.com. Since you are giving some away, I know several people who would love to receive it as a gift.

I've already ordered mine, but, as Luke said, another copy would make a wonderful gift.

Congratulations! I'd love to be included in your drawing. Thanks for this.

Like many others, I've got my copy coming, but would love a signed one. Then I could give my non-signed one to a friend or have one to make my CW students read and bring back for others to read! (Chris A.)

Alex Chertok said...

Sure, we all WANT one, but who DESERVES one? I know you'll make the right choice, Eduardo.

Sandy Longhorn said...

Am I too late? Hope I'm not too late. Pick me!!!

L.D. said...

It's pretty cool to see a poet post about receiving copies of his first book. It's like "magic can happen." Nice cover, too. By the way, if you haven't gotten out that magic hat yet, please add my name (Leslie).

Congrats!

Booktender said...

SQUEEEEEEE!

Tracy said...

I'm buying one, so, if I win, it's getting donated to the CG Public Library (the unsigned one, of course!)!

Mari said...

Yes, please! And congratulations again, Eduardo. Enjoy this time in your book's life; there's nothing like your first.

Sheryl said...

Eduardo, I want one! I am broke! Many blessings on the publication of what I know is a fantastic collection.

Alex said...

I would love a book of your poetry!
