  1. I am so wanting this book. I need to get an infusion of motivation to pick up the writing pen again and do what I used to love to do. I have been to her website and she is so motivating~ I was going to buy the book myself, but figured I'd give this a try :)

  2. Hi Christina,
    I enjoyed meeting you at the MWG Conference and taking your Sunday morning class. Please enter me in the contest for your book. I am always looking for ways to improve my skills. Thank you.

  3. The long-term benefits of "working out" on a regular basis can't be underestimated for the health and well-being of my writing. Christina's book is just the motivation I need to keep going.
