Author to give away $1,000 at local book signing Tuesday

So what if you thought you might win $1,000 if you went to a book signing? Would you go?

Of course you would.

Tuesday at noon at Barnes & Noble, 4020 Sharon Road, you’ll have that chance.

Rachel Cruze, author of “Love Your Life, Not Theirs: 7 Money Habits for Living the Life You Want,” will be at the bookstore, and yes, indeed, she will be giving away $1,000.

Her point?

A lesson. If you win the money, she wants you to use it toward paying off a debt, putting it into savings or buying something with cash.

These are some of Cruze’s practical tips on how you can stop comparing your life to others’ lives. She encourages you to take control of your money and take steps to live and love the life you want.

She’ll be talking about the importance of steering clear of debt, making a plan for your money, talking about money (even when it’s hard), saving like you mean it, thinking before you spend, and giving a little until you can give a lot.

Cruze is also the author of the bestselling “Smart Money Smart Kids.”

The event is free, and everyone is invited.
