OWTK Giveaways

A Magical $200 Giveaway Inspired By Arlo Finch In The Valley Of Fire

To hear author John August tell it on his wonderful Wondery podcast called Launch, in which he goes deep into the woods to walk the listener through the process of conceiving, writing, pitching, editing, selling, and releasing his first book, Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire, this magical fictional tale has its origins while young John was camping with his family in the very real woods of Colorado many years ago.


In celebration of Arlo’s arrival on bookstore shelves on February 6th and of the creative short film my family made in honor of Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire that we will be debuting early in February, I’ve put together an outdoor camping-inspired Arlo Finch giveaway including the following items valued at over $200!

  4. Great giveaway. The kids love camping and a new tent would be awesome.

    I love going camping with my family in the North woods of Minnesota. Not quite as far as the Boundary Waters, but farther North than Duluth.

  6. What an amazing giveaway.

  7. Phil Corless says:

    I’ve camped alot over the past decade with the Boy Scouts, but I think I still have a few years of camping fun left in me. 🙂

  8. Boom. Camp Dad 2.0 in three days ….

  9. We really want to camp at Cumberland Island…we reserved a spot there last year (a very competitive process) and were slated to go in November, but then a hurricane came and destroyed the area, including the ferry dock we’d have needed to take, so camping was prohibited until they get it all fixed again. Hoping we can reschedule!

  10. My son and I love to camp in our state parks. This would be a very cool update to our gear!

  11. There are some campgrounds on the shores of Lake Michigan I’d love to take my family to visit.

  23. We will head to the Poconos with the Girl Scouts. It would be nice for the kids to have their own tent!

  24. I used to go camping a lot back in high school since it was cheap, but haven’t roughed it in years. Trying to convince my family it would be fun.

  25. Rob Greenwood says:

    There are so many places here in Florida to camp, I don’t know where to start.
