It’s a Backwards Birthday for Carrie Ann Ryan!

Yes, this week is fab author Carrie Ann Ryan’s backward birthday. What’s a backward birthday? I’m glad you asked!

A backward birthday is when instead of you giving presents to the birthday girl, she–and a bunch of her also-fab author friends–give presents to you, the reader! All you have to do is comment on this blog and/or any of the blogs on the list below before 11:59 pm, April 6, to be entered to win the gifts offered on each site or one of the grand prizes, a new Kindle Touch or a $60 Amazon giftcard. The more blogs you visit and comment on, the more chances you have to win!

So put on a silly hat,  have some cake,  and start hopping…blog hopping, that is. Don’t forget to leave your email address in your comment so that we can contact you if you win.

Oh, and don’t forget to wish Carrie a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
