I had been considering a blog of my own, but didn't think I really had too much to say, or offer, to the "world," but I thought I'd give it a try. It was also about this time that Julie Lessman was running her "Post-a-Review" contest to have a character named after you in her then upcoming book, A Heart Revealed.
After posting reviews like there was no tomorrow, some of you may know that I came in second place to my friend, Casey Herringshaw, of Writing for Christ - The Audience of One. I finished with a total of 169 reviews posted, and Casey finished with 240 reviews posted! She's pretty amazing! :) You'll find both of our names in A Heart Revealed . . . which is pretty cool, to say the least! If you'd like a chance to have YOUR NAME in Julie's next book, A Love Surrendered, just visit her contest link for all of the details.
If you want to read more about it on Julie Lessman's Journal Jots, you can visit her archives and search for the March 25, 2011 entry. And it goes without saying, that if you haven't read Julie's books yet . . . you simply must! Just be sure to start with A Passion Most Pure, which is book one in the Daughters of Boston series. If you haven't read my reviews for these OUTSTANDING books, you can find them here . . . A Passion Most Pure, A Passion Redeemed, A Passion Denied, A Hope Undaunted, and A Heart Revealed.
And without further adieu, I'd like to present THE GIVEAWAY! In celebration of my one year of blogging ( over 120 posts!), I'm offering a copy of A Passion Most Pure, plus, Julie has graciously offered to giveaway two books -- winner's choice of one of her books (including Steven's upcoming story, A Love Surrendered!), AND a top CBA book of their choice from her personal library as well. That's THREE BOOKS going to the WINNER!!! To be entered into the contest simply leave a comment on this post saying that you'd like to be entered. Be sure to leave your email address in your comment -- NO EMAIL ADDRESS=NO WIN.
If you'd like an extra entry -- Follow Sweet Treats & Inspiration, and leave a separate comment saying that you're a follower.
Contest ends on January 31, 2012 at 8:59 P.M. PST. Winner will be announced and notified on February 1st, and will have until February 8th to contact me to claim their prizes.
Thank you all for making this such a fun year of blogging!
