Giveaway: My Publisher Photo Books

If you guys are anything like me, you can always use the chance for a free photo book. Not only do I try to make a large yearly book for our family, I also like to make smaller versions to commemorate specific events such as birthday parties or first days of school.

And if you really want to do something special you could also make something like my preschool book or even a personalized story with your child as the protagonist.  I love this example from the MyPublisher website, created by Deborah Bowman.  Not only is it a tale of her son’s adventures, it’s also an activity book filled with fun questions and tasks to keep the reader involved.
Are you excited by the possibilities?  Well, guess what.  I’m happy to announce the latest MPMK giveaway is a 20-page Classic photo book with photo finish or book jacket cover (a $44.94 retail value including shipping) courtesy of the lovely folks over at MyPublisher.

Have you heard of MyPublisher yet?  Some of my favorite bloggers (see here and here) love them and I can see why.  The company is serious about their reputation for quality.  
Here’s what they have to say about their product, “We use the thickest paper in the industry. It’s the same archival quality you’ll find in boutique art and photography books costing hundreds of dollars. We’re also fans of premium end-sheets and vellum fly sheets — small touches you’ll definitely notice.  And our state-of-the-art digital 4-color printing process ensures our books will impress even professional photographers.”
Along with quality, they also have all kinds of really cool options from mini books for only $2.99 to super glossy and “lay flat” pages.
So here’s the really good news, not one, not two, but three lucky people are going to win one of these books.  Isn’t that wonderful?  
To enter simply leave a comment below and be sure to include an email address.  One additional entry each for being an MPMK facebook fan or twitter follower as well as for being a MyPublisher facebook fan or twitter follower AND for tweeting or facebooking about the giveaway.  That’s 7 possible entries for those of you keeping track – but you must leave one comment per entry!  This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end at midnight EST on Monday, October 3rd.  Good luck!
