"Bella's Rules"

 
It's release day for Bella's Rules -- hooray!

Bella's Rules is the story of the irrepresible Bella who really, really, really doesn't like rules. A free spirit, Bella marches to the beat of an entirely different orchestra. That is, until Puppy shows up and THEN things start to change. Elissa Haden Guest's story is hilarious and heartfelt, an absolute delight to illustrate. From the very first read through of the manuscript, I fell in love with Bella and Puppy and I can't wait for readers to do the same.

So, then, how's about a Bella's Rules giveaway? Here's the deal:

1) Leave a comment on this post any time between now and 11:59 PM EST May 23 to be entered.

2) Want to up your chances? Post about the giveaway to either Twitter or Facebook and that counts as a second entry (just let me know in the comments). Or if Instagram is more your speed, take a photo of the book and tag it with #bellasrulesbook.

3) I'll choose the winner randomly using this tool.

4) I'll ship the book to any locale, but overseas readers are responsible for any customs fees that may be incurred.
