November Book Giveaway

Update: After seeing all the lovely comment's about Debbie Corso's work I have decided to give away 10 copies of her book instead of 5

It was a great success last month, with 5 people winning Debbie Corso's last book (1 person even paid it forward giving away another 5 copies!)  On November 30th her new book Stop Sabotaging a 30 Day DBT Challenge to Change Your Life will be available for purchase on Smashwords.

And I am happy to announce I am the introduction writer!

Starting on Friday November 23rd at 11:59pm until Friday November 30th at 11:59pm I will be giving away 10 copies of Debbie's new book as well as 1 copy of Brene Brown's The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are and the 1 copy of Buddha and The Borderline



There are 2 ways to win one of *10* of Debbie Corso's book:
1) Leave a comment here with an e-mail address stating which book your prefer
2) Become a fan of my twitter then tweet: "Just entered to win 1 of 10 copies of Stop Sabotaging by Debbie Corso.  Follow @APazMA and RT to enter #BPD #DBT"

There are 2 ways to win the other 2 books:

1) Leave a comment here with an e-mail address stating which book you prefer. 
2) Become a fan of my twitter then tweet: "Just entered to win 1 of 5 copies of (book title).  Follow @APazMA and RT to enter #BPD #DBT"












Rules: After I receive 200 entries or by 11/30/2012 at 11:59pm EST, whichever comes first I will contact the 7 winners and ask for an e-mail address for those on twitter so I can "gift" the Stop Sabotaging e-book to you.  I will not use your e-mail address for anything else besides sending the book and an e-mail confirming the book was sent if there are any issues.  If I can not get in touch with any winner within a week (and I will try my hardest to do so) I will give the remaining book(s) to another contestant.  The winners of the other 3 books will need to send me their physical address to have the book shipped from Amazon via DM on twitter or e-mail.  The winners will be selected at random from my blog and twitter.  2 entries per person per day allowed (1 on here and 1 on twitter, so 14 total max.) Failure to comply with rules, such as tweeting your entry more than once a day will make you disqualified.  If you have questions tweet me!

Please play fair as I plan on doing this once a month with different books I purchase.  Next month I might give away Linehan's DBT workbook & 3 months of DBT coaching for the holidays....will update!

  16. Hi, I have Debbie's 1st book and am a fan of the useful advice Debbie generously offers on a daily basis on the 'healing' FB page. I was diagnosed a few months ago with BPD and breast cancer: 2 big news to say the least as I am 40 and having spent most of my life self-destruct and sabotaging myself, I now know that through DBT, I could live better. Currently exhausted by treatments, hope to manage my BPD better is what I cling to ... I am looking forward reading the 2nd book by Debbie. The buddha and the borderline seems like an interesting other book... Thank you

  19. I would love to have a copy of Stop Sabotaging. I suffer from BPD and it has negatively affected nearly every aspect of my life. I first learned of DBT when I was hospitalized 2 years ago, and am extremely fortunate to have a therapist who is knowledgeable in it. I am doing everything I can to utilize the skills I am learning, and having a copy of this book would certainly help me.

  20. I would love to win a copy of Debbie Corso's book Stop Sabotaging as my daughter has been diagnosed with BPD for 5 years now as is only 23. She is in therapy but I think it would be really helpful to see she is not alone with this struggle, and would welcome DBT as we are very behind in this country with the belief that BPD even exists.

  22. i would love debbie corsos book stop sabotaging.
    ive had bpd for 6 years but officially got diagnosed december 2011, after seeing multiple psyhcologists, psychiatrists and social workers etc. i would really love this book so i can learn before i enter the dbt program. it would really help me , so the 3 out of the 4 members of my family will hopefully talk to me again as they have completely disowned me because of bpd.
