Well, since it's apparently Asian Pacific American Heritage Month let's see what we can do with some Asian-American titles. I think I've reviewed a couple in the last few weeks. How about I throw together a lot of three titles with Asian-American characters and draw a winner?
One winner will receive...(drumroll please)....
1. Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok
2. One Amazing Thing by Chitra Divakaruni
3. Saving Fish From Drowning by Amy Tan (I didn't review this one, but I read it recently)
This contest is open to readers in North America! (Sorry guys, I can't afford to send overseas at the moment.)
We will be accepting entries until the evening of May 31st, 2010.
There are a variety of ways to enter (if you've entered in my contests before, feel free to ignore this - nothing's changed):
1. Leave a comment in this entry, but make sure I have a way to contact you! (NOTE: IF LEAVING AN E-MAIL ADDRESS PLEASE USE ONE YOU CHECK FREQUENTLY. At least half of the addresses I've contacted re: winning previous contests have not sent a response!)
2. Go back to my old reviews and comment on them. Each comment (one per entry) will get you another entry in the drawing.
3. Comment on future reviews as they come out - I update Tuesday, Thursday and at least once on the weekends.
4. Mention this contest in your blog; leave a comment somewhere on fashion_piranha with a link so I know that you did.
5. Mention this contest on some other public place - a forum, your website, whatever! Again, just leave me a link so I know where you did.
6. Add a link to your blog roll / links page / whatever you call it to Fashionista Piranha!

8. If you're on Livejournal, get another entry by friending fashion_piranha If you're already my friend, then you'll automatically get the entry when you comment here so don't worry about un-friending and then re-friending the journal. :-p
Good luck everyone!
