Last month, to help kick off the new blog WWAM Bam (Western Women & Asian Men – Breaking All Molds), I highlighted three must-read essays in the new anthology Knocked Up Abroad Again:
I’ve never been pregnant. But that hasn’t stopped Chinese family and friends from telling me it’s more than past my time to get on board. In fact, just the other day a close Chinese friend was asking me when I’m finally going to have that “cute little mixed-blood baby”.
But I don’t need to imagine what it might be like if I were actually pregnant in Asia. That’s because I just picked up Knocked Up Abroad Again, a new anthology edited by Lisa Ferland that considers the experience of expecting or raising children in another country through the eyes of 26 different writers.
And guess what? Those writers include some fantastic Western women who are living in Asia and also married to Asian men.
Well, now it’s my turn to share the literary love with you, my readers.
Would you like to win a FREE copy of this fabulous anthology, Knocked Up Abroad Again? I’m giving away one copy on WeChat to someone with a mailing address in mainland China! Why not you?
(For those of you not based in mainland China, but with friends or family over in China who could receive it for you, you can enter too!)
Here’s how to enter:
- To be eligible to win, you must use WeChat on your mobile phone and have a mailing address in mainland China. (Note – if you haven’t installed WeChat, it’s easy to download. You can find it in most major app stores by searching for WeChat or微信, or get it directly from their website here).
- Follow my official WeChat account. If you’re not already a follower, just scan the QR Code below using your WeChat app (here are directions on how to scan QR codes in WeChat): Or, you can search for my official WeChat account under the words “speakingchina”.
- Finally, just send a message to my official WeChat account with the words “knocked up” and you’re entered.
It’s THAT simple.
Remember, entries must be received by 11:59pm tonight (Feb 16) Beijing time (which is also 3:59pm UTC time). Only one entry per person. Tomorrow, on Feb 17, I will randomly choose a winner from all the entries and notify them via my WeChat official account.
Good luck to everyone!
A huge thanks to Charlotte Edwards Zhang (whose essay is one of the three I highlighted in my post on WWAM Bam) for making this giveaway possible. You can also read Charlotte’s writing on her blogs Living in China with Kids and Chinese Potpourri.
