Weekly Giveaway (6/22)

“Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.” – St. Augustine

Because I’ve built up a large collection of extra books and resources, each week I give some away absolutely free, no strings attached.

Each giveaway lasts seven days, with a new one beginning each Friday, so you can enter any time during the week. Check out a list of past giveaways items here.


Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World
by Michael Hyatt

This week’s giveaway is Michael Hyatt’s excellent new book Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World (Thomas Nelson, hardcover, 288 pages). I reviewed it here calling it “the best practical guide to new media success and a must-read for any blogger, artist, writer, or speaker.” Here’s what Amazon says:

“To be successful in the market today, you must possess two strategic assets: a compelling product and a meaningful platform. In this step-by-step guide, Michael Hyatt, former CEO and current Chairman of Thomas Nelson Publishers, takes readers behind the scenes, into the new world of social media success.
He shows you what best-selling authors, public speakers, entrepreneurs, musicians, and other creatives are doing differently to win customers in today’s crowded marketplace. Hyatt speaks from experience. He writes one of the top 800 blogs in the world and has more than 100,000 followers on Twitter. His large and growing platform serves as the foundation for his successful writing, speaking, and consulting practice.”

The winner will be randomly selected next Friday and the giveaway item will be sent out, free-of-charge, shortly thereafter.


The drawing is now closed. Congratulations to Dennis C. for winning this week! Check your e-mail for instructions on receiving the book. If you don’t see an e-mail from me, check your spam box—apparently e-mails with “giveaway” in the title are prone to end up there.

In the future I’ll be giving away more books and resources, sometimes multiple items per giveaway! So subscribe via feed reader or email to ensure you never miss your chance to win.
