Win a copy of He Said What? on Twitter!

I love you. The meeting ran late. I want a divorce. One little word, one casual lie, one devastating announcement—and our lives are turned upside down forever.

In He Said What?: Women Write About Moments When Everything Changed, Victoria Zackheim gathers together twenty-five gifted women writers who share profoundly personal moments in which a man in their life said something—good or bad—that changed them irrevocably.

We've all experienced the powerful impact that the right (or wrong) words can have on our lives. From May 2 through May 6, Seal Press is giving away a copy a day of He Said What? to Twitter followers who use the hashtag #hesaidwhat to share their He Said What? moment.

Every morning during this 5-day giveaway, @SealPress will post a question on Twitter at 9am PST for followers to answer. We'll ask you to respond using #hesaidwhat, and as each day draws to a close we'll randomly pick a winner to receive a copy of the book.

Log on to Twitter, follow @SealPress, and share your moment--and win a book!
