Parlez-vous français? If so, you’re in luck.
Contests, we have contests, we have lots and lots of contests. . .
Before I launch into the newest one, let’s review.
As always, if you sign up for my mailing list, you’re automatically entered in my monthly autographed book giveaway. You never need to do another thing.
Next you have until the end of September to comment on any of my blogs with the word “Happiness” in the title. Once you do you’ll be entered in the Happiness Key Beach Bag Giveaway. All details are on the contest page of my website. The beach bag is stuffed full of goodies selected by the four women of Happiness Key, my latest novel.
As if that isn’t enough, you also have until October 1st to take the Happiness Key Facebook quiz and find out which of the four main characters in Happiness Key you have the most in common with. Then email me your results. Each character will be giving away a signed copy of the novel to a reader who is most like her, plus a key lime candle to go with it. Again, details on the contest page.
And the newest giveaway? Recently I was presented with three gorgeous copies of The Parting Glass in French, and I’ve decided they are much too lovely to just give to the library or my church for their book sales. Neither did I want to toss them, as I’ve had to do in the past when I realized that I had enough foreign copies of my novels to insulate my entire attic. (The last time I counted I had been published in twenty-one countries and sixteen languages–and I think that was before the Polish and Hungarian copies began to arrive.)
Whatever the count, a lot of foreign language editions come my way . Now I want to find good homes for Le Refuge Irlandais. Tell me why you’d like to have one. Do you want to practice your college French? Do you have a relative who speaks it and would enjoy the novel? A high school student who needs motivation? Comment here, on this blog, and I will choose three eligible winners using the random number generator provided by the good folks at www.random.org. Sadly, because of shipping costs, only US addresses will be considered for this giveaway. Once again, you have until the end of September to comment here.
Parlez-vous français? Bonne chance!
I myself do not read nor do I speak french BUT one of quilting buddies is from France. It would be perfect for her. Thank you so much for this giveaway.
I would love to share your book with some ladies who live in my South Carolina town. They are here with their husbands from France because of a job assignment. They are learning english, but I am sure they would enjoy a new book in their native language. I’m sure they would have fun sharing your book, they also are quilters.
I have a fourteen year old daughter who is starting high school tomorrow. She will be taking her third year of French, and she is planning to join the French club! She would enjoy trying to translate the French version of The Parting Glass.
I have read your Shenandoah Album Series as well as The Parting Glass, Whiskey Island, and Prospect Street. I am currently reading Happiness Key and enjoying it.
I hope to introduce my daughter to your books because of their educational value as well as their interesting storylines!
I have a fourteen year old daughter that is starting high school tomorrow. Is will be taking her third year of French and will be joining the French Club. I think that she would enjoy trying to translate the French version of The Parting Glass. I may be able to help her a bit since I took French in high school also. Thanks for the chance to win!
That would be a lovely use for it. Good luck.
Another great use for it. Wish I had copies for everybody.
Sorry, but I don’t read french and have no one to share it with. Am not entering the contest. It is a lovely idea. The ladies above have some lovely uses for it. Good luck, Ladies. I’m sure whoever receives it will enjoy it.
My family makes me HAPPY I have happiness when my grandchildren are near!
