Doll-Related Giveaway Drawing

Following the generous spirits of fellow blog authors of, Fashion Dolls at Van's Doll Treasures and Chynadoll Creations, I am also conducting a drawing as a gesture of my appreciation to my followers.  Instead of offering a doll, I decided to offer a doll-related item in this first giveaway installment (there will be two).

For the first installment, the one who possesses the winning number will receive a autographed, pre-publication copy of my second black-doll reference book, Black Dolls a Comprehensive Guide to Celebrating Collecting and Experiencing the Passion.  Published in full color in 2008, as a followup to my first book, Black Dolls, provides image identifications, descriptions, and values for over 1000 vintage-to-modern black dolls. The dolls are categorized in separate chapters devoted to early dolls, cloth, fashion, manufactured (playline), artist, celebrity/personality/historical, paper dolls, with the final chapter devoted to doll creativity.  The book contains 449 pages

The post-production (final copies) retailed for $34.95 and sold out in less than a year's time.  Offered here (and still selling on, with a copy sold just yesterday) is an autographed pre-production copy, which includes a CD complement of chapter 4 in its entirety which corrects the 10 pages of text-image discrepancies discovered after the first copies were published.

If you are interested in increasing your knowledge on modern-to-vintage black dolls, please add a comment to indicate your desire to participate in this drawing.  Each comment will be assigned a number in the order the comment is placed.  The winning number will be selected randomly using Custom Random Number Generator.

The drawing will be held on Sunday December 18, 2011.  The holder of the winning number will be announced by noon CST on the 18th.  The book and CD will be mailed out the following Monday, December 19, 2011, via media mail at no cost to US residents. 

International followers may participate but will be responsible for the cost of shipping. 

Thanks to all my faithful followers and good luck should you choose to enter!  Stay tuned for giveaway #2.
