Book Giveaway: Who’s Your Daddy?:And Other Stories.

Who's Your Daddy?What does it mean to be a Caribbean-American? This is a question that has haunted me ever since I left Jamaica over thirty years ago. Of course, mine has been a singular response and I’ve thought through the question in many of the stories in Who’s Your Daddy?:And Other Stories.

Yet, I still wonder how others feel about this question. To get as many answers as I can, I'm going to take a page from Middle Zone Musings, and ask readers to write a brief post (100 to 1000 words maximum) about the following topic:

What does it mean to be a Caribbean-American?

“To sweeten the pot” (Can a Jamaican blogger use that word without being misunderstood?), one lucky winner will receive an autographed copy of Who's Your Daddy?: And Other Stories.

The winner will be selected at random, but take a moment to read the contest rules to learn more. Plus, you gotta be older than 18, to enter. Some of the stories in Who's Your Daddy?: And Other Stories deal with "mature" subjects and I don't want to be accused of "corrupting the youth." I am also not limiting the term "Caribbean-American" to those who live in the United States. I mean Caribbean-(North) American. This includes all the folk up in cold Canada!

If this topic doesn’t appeal to you, I’ll be having two other book giveaways on these topics, the second of which will culminate on Father’s Day 2009 (June 21, 2009).

Growing up Without Dad (or Pops, Papa, Dada, or SOB—whatever you call your male parental antecedent).

In the meantime, however, let's get started on this: What does it mean to be a Caribbean-American?
