TwitrLit's 4th Birthday Competition.

For four years, Debra Hamel has been tweeting the first lines of books on TwitrLit, and to celebrate is going to give away her excellent book on an Ancient Greek courtesan Trying Neaira which I can thoroughly recommend. It is an highly entertaining way to learn a lot about the world of classical Greece.

Debra says:

' is turning four on April 29th! To celebrate, I'm holding a drawing for a free copy of my book Trying Neaira: The True Story of a Courtesan's Scandalous Life in Ancient Greece ( You won't see the book on TwitrLit: ironically, its first line is too long to tweet:

"Neaira grew up in a brothel in Corinth, a polis in Greece's Peloponnese famous enough for its prostitutes that the ancient Greeks made a verb out of it: korinthiazein meant 'to fornicate.'"

But maybe you'll be able to win a copy through Twitter.

To enter, simply tweet this to your followers:

TwitrLit turns 4 on 4/29! RT for chance to win Details: @TwitrLit #tw4tn

The fine print:

  • Your Twitter account must be public for you to be entered in the drawing.
  • Contest entries must be tweeted by 9:00 A.M. EDT, Saturday, April 30th.
  • One winner will be selected at random from among eligible entries.
  • The winner will be notified via Twitter on April 30th.
