Help this writer get work! GIVEAWAY

Yes, you read that right! I'm participating in a Facebook-based writing contest and you can help this writer get work! How cool is that?

I'm not just a children's author, but I'm also a parent. That's why I was intrigued by a Motherhood and Parenting writing position with MomSquawk, a website that delivers news, information and a community for new and expecting mothers. We all know the goal of parenting is simple — to raise happy, healthy, well-adjusted kids. But the road from here to there is anything but simple. That's why I hope to get the chance to share info and life in the trenches with other moms.

My mission which I accepted was to write an essay about an important lesson I've learned or personal insight I've gained from being a parent.

The Vampire Diaries: The Return: MidnightVampire CrushBut now I NEED YOUR HELP! Please head over to Facebook and like MomSquawk then check out my essay and leave a comment. The writer whose essay attracts the most Facebook comments gets an automatic offer to write for MomSquawk!

In other words, comments = a paying writing gig for moi!
