Win this book!

It's hard to believe, but June 2013 marks the 10 year anniversary of mtbbrian.com. It seems like it was just yesterday that I was learning HTML and DreamWeaver with my foot propped up in a cast, just a few weeks from my wedding day. My photography has changed and so has my site, but I am  happy to say that I am still married to the same woman I married 10 years ago.  You can see a few pics of my wife that I have taken over the past 10 years and other photographs by checking out The Internet Archives " Wayback Machine", by plugging in mtbbrian.com.
In celebration of this monumental occasion I thought I'd giveaway a signed  copy of my book, "Trout Dreams", the very one pictured below a 10"x8" standard landscape hardcover with dustcover.


"THE RULES"
*All you have to do is comment on this post  and you will be entered for the giveaway  The entry period begins today and ends at 11:59 PM MST on the 10th of June 2013. 
*Then on or about the 11th, I will pick a winner using the random number generator on random.org.
*If you must comment using the Anonymous,Open ID or Name/URL options, please leave a name and email so I know who you are are and how to contact you.
*You can share this post if you like, and please do, but the only way to enter this giveaway is to comment on this post.
*Due to shipping costs, I have to limit this giveaway to readers in the United States and Canada only.

If you aren't the lucky winner, and you still want a copy of the my book "Trout Dreams", you can check out my Blurb.com store and buy one.
Good Luck and thanks for entering!
Brian

I had a Holga but it's readily apparent that it's the photographer and not the camera. Great work.

Hi Brian, I kept meaning to do this, I am glad you left the entry period open so long so that a procrastinator like me could make sure to enter. I think you have some really neat photos in this book, and I can't wait to win it!

It is cool to see your book project move from an abstract idea into a finished product!

I like seeing friends achieve their dreams.
