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!
