October Author in the Spotlight Wrap-Up + Giveaway

October Author in the Spotlight Wrap-Up + Giveaway

Kmart Shoes Giveaway ends at Midnight tonight!

The last day of October is always a treat and full of indulging in chocolate candy. I've just returned from taking my kids trick or treating and now they are sorting through their candy stash.  So as we celebrate Halloween, let's also celebrate Lance Ward, the Minnesota Author in the Spotlight this month.

Today is the last day to enter to win the graphic novel Kmart Shoes.  Click here to enter:  Kmart Shoes Giveaway

Please check out my book review of Kmart Shoes.  This is an autobiographical graphic novel of Lance's life.  Lance draws and tells the true story of his life growing up disillusioned and disheartened.  Lance is a survivor of a tragic childhood and his book is a triumph of his will to endure and survive.

Check out the author interview with Lance Ward.  Find out the back story behind Kmart Shoes and information about Lance's drawing life.  You will also find some new cartoonists to check out.  Lance will make you smile.  I think it is one of the best author interviews on Booksnob!  You seriously need to read it.
