Last week I asked for your thoughts about contests, and the weekly one, where four people each win one book, was the overwhelming favorite. So, I'll be doing weekly contests from now up until my Mega May Contest.

Which leads me to....this week's contest! Since today is a holiday in memory of the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I'd like to know who inspires you.

You can tell me by commenting here, or by sending me an email (elizabeth at elizabethwrites dot com) Comments must be in by midnight EST on Friday, January 19th, and then I'll draw four names at random and send each of those four people a book! Though you can only reply once, you can reply no matter where you live (I will ship books overseas), or if you've won something from me in the past.

Books I'll be giving away are: Icing on the Lake by Catherine Clark, Bass Ackwards and Belly Up by Elizabeth Clark and Sarah Fain, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, and The Key to the Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson.

Also, as I mentioned last week, I drew four names at random (nothing beats slips of paper in a hat!) to each win a book as a thank you for voting about the contest situation. Congrats to Brittany, Jordyn, Natalie, and Autumn!

I am inspired by talent - by talented individuals who realized their dreams and lived up to their potential - Gene Kelly, Barbara Stanwyck, Cary Grant.

I am inspired by loyalty - by people who truly love their friends and family and will do anything for them - and I am fortunate and thankful for my mother and sister, who raised me well.

I am inspired by truth - by truthseekers and truthtellers, by those who fight for what's right, even when it is not an easy fight.

I am inspired by my cat - yes, my lovely cat Hollywood - who is fighting the good fight (fighting this disease) and defying the odds. She is so strong. She's a super trooper. I love her and I am so proud of her.

Sophie Scholl. My godmother gave me a book about her and it meant a lot to me to have that kind of historical figure in the German heritage too.

RFK. I know, odd, but even as a teenager I was just drawn to the story of someone who could admit his mistakes and grow and learn in his 30s in such a public way. He went from working for McCarthy on the House cmte to being one of the first to admit he was wrong about Vietnam.
