Hey there everybody,

I've got a great contest opportunitiy for you, thanks to Martin Dubow, author of Francey.

He's made a series of videos and posted them on YouTube to promote Francey. Check out the first one here, watch it, and then comment on it (no lame comments now, I want genuine input!). Then, report back to me and comment on this post to let me know you watched the video and commented, and I'll enter you to win a copy of Francey! It sounds complicated, but it's really easy!

This contest will run until December 24th, so hurry and enter! After watching the video, you'll most definitely want to read Francey!

Great video. It looks amazing.

I watched the videos - they're well done, actually quite dramatic. I've already read the book, and recommend it, great story and memorable characters.

It's easy to get a YouTube account btw - just give an e-mail address and confirm.

First off, the whole concept of filming the reading like this got me interested. The actors did a great job. Then the material itself got me very interested. I believe in past lives and love stories dealing with that. The writing is awesome. I watched all 3 videos. This one looks like a winner!

Ooooh . . . I can't wait to meet Lord Crimson, and I have to wonder about Francey. Who is she? A female? A character?

I love this video - we discussed direct and indirect characterization with my 7th graders today. This would be a great example to share with the class of direct characterization. Maybe if I win the book, I'll use it as a read aloud with my class.
