The Protostar Giveaway

Utopia Announcements, book marketing, Sweepstakes

A protostar is the first step in a stellar evolution…or…the birth of a star.

I’m over the moon to share with you a giveaway that was made possible because of the generosity of the following companies — InkSlinger PR, Starling Magic, Whit & Ware, Timid Monster, Mae I Design — who immediately jumped at the chance to be part of this. It’s another example of the collaborative and generous spirit of our community. I guess at this point I shouldn’t be surprised anymore by that spirit and generosity, but I am. I am awed.


This prize package was designed to help new, rising and established authors on their path to stardom.

Without further ado…
