Happy Birthday Giveaway: SAVE THE CAT by Blake Snyder

Guess what.


I will be making up for spending my birthday at work with sushi rolls and a coca-cola birthday cake with fudge frosting, which will then be doused thoroughly in mini chocolate chips. I'll try to remember to take a picture. ;)

Anyway. Since I'm away from home (and therefore from the bulk of people who would actually celebrate my birthday with me), I wanted to celebrate the ol' blog-o-sphere way: with a giveaway!

Nonexistent reader: Jee Charlie, what are you giving away??

I want to give away one of my favoritest writing books, Save the Cat by Blake Snyder.

This book is excellent for plotting; I've used it to outline two books so far. I recommend it to anyone looking to craft a story, whatever it may be.

Nonexistent reader #2: But Charlie! I already own Save the Cat!

If that's the case, I will give away The Writer's Portable Mentor by Priscilla Long, which is the best book on prose that I've found thus far.

Doing the giveaway the fair-and-square way--leave a comment and will choose a winner for Monday, April 8th. If you don't have your contact info listed in your profile or on your blog, you might want to slip that in there as well. ;)

And.... cut.


  1. Ugh I need to get a copy of Save the Cat. Heard so many good things. Thanks for the giveaway.

  2. Happy Birthday, Charlie! I'd love to win Save the Cat. So sweet of you to giveaway a present.

  3. Happy birthday! I hope you have a good day. Your give away is wonderful! I've heard a lot of good things about save the cat.

  4. I've got Save the Cat. It really is a great book. I could use some help on Prose, so count me in your giveaway, please. More importantly, have an awesome Birthday!!

  5. me me! also, happy birthday <3

  6. Happy birthday! If you were here I'd make you a tasty treat.

  7. I suppose I could look up either at the library, but it's much easier just asking you to give them to me. XD

    And Happy Birthday, Li'l Sis!

  8. Happy Birthday! (nowgimmesomething) --> I feel like when I was in elementary school, begging my mom to buy me a present too whenever we went to the store to buy someone else a present. XD

    BUT I WILL SHAMELESSLY ASK YOU FOR Save the Cat. >.> :D I can always use more help plotting. It's my weakest area, definitely.

  9. Happy birthday! If you were nearby I would have celebrated your birthday heartily with you! As such, I'll just munch on some chocolate and celebrate it from afar.

  10. Happy Birthday!!! I don't have either book, so bring it on!


    You're my favorite <3
