Get My Books Free!

It’s almost Yom Kippur. And what better way is there to celebrate than to get a free copy of my tell-all memoir Yom Kippur a Go-Go, about how a bunch of friendly bull-dykes and queens taught me how to be an Orthodox Jew, along with a copy of my first book, Never Mind the Goldbergs?

(Okay, trick question. The correct answer is: “by praying, giving charity, and doing good stuff for other people.” But this is a nifty runner-up.)

To win, just go here and answer the question:



In which way are you “casting off” and starting new this year?


And then you can win my books, along with Eprhyme‘s awesome new album, the Cool Jew book and $250 more worth of swag:

Also, if you’re an author, here’s a great Plan B: Join RedRoom.com and write a blog post about repentance! You could win an autographed copy of Yom Kippur a Go-Go…or just go buy one yourself for the holiday season.

Not that I’d ever tell you how to celebrate the most important holiday of the year. But, well, there you go.
