My new book, Haak mijn leven gered, has seen some positive feedback. Thanks to my early supporters I’m now able to afford to offer a few giveaway copies so I thought it would be a great time to host a giveaway here on the blog. I’ll tell you a little bit about the book and then give you the info for how to enter the giveaway. There will be five winners of this giveaway (who get one book each) and they’ll be selected randomly next week.
Over haak mijn leven gered
Crochet Saved My Life is about the mental and physical health benefits of crochet. It inclues chapters on crochet to help heal through depression, angst, PTSD, OCD, bipolar, schizophrenia, autism spectrum disorders, Alzheimer’s issues, short-term and chronic pain and more. I share my own true story of healing from lifelong depression in part through crochet. I also share the stories of some really amazing women who also hooked to heal.
You can learn more about the book from the main sales page. You can read some of the early positive feedback here. Read a recent review by Moogly and see my Underground Crafter interview about the book.

A Few Details
Helaas, due to shipping costs, I have to make this giveaway open to U.S. residents only. No international shipping will be done. Maak je niet druk – I’ll host a future giveaway for my awesome foreign followers in the future when enough sales free up some more money. This giveaway will remain open until August 31, 2012 to give everyone time to get their posts up. Randomly selected winners will be announced on the blog the following week and books will be shipped out to US addresses that week as well. I reserve the right to throw out any entries that don’t follow all of the rules stated here in this post.
