A Sneak Peek, A Giveaway Reminder, and A Shameless Sales Pitch


Thanks again for reading my blog!  Giveaways are a fun little way for me to express my gratitude for you.  I’m hosting my first one ever here.  In retrospect, I realize that I made my first giveaway too complicated.  Sorry about that.  I was trying to give you a lot of ways to enter, and I’m afraid I just made a big mess. OOPS!  That’s one of the downsides of being a “wing it” kind of gal.  I promise I’ll make the next one simpler for ya.


Here’s the little sneak peek I promised you.  It’s a sneak peek of one of the TWO giveaways I’m offering in April!!


Sneak Peek of April's Giveaway!

Sneak Peek of April’s Giveaway!


Thrive, formerly Shelf Reliance, carries high quality products, and my friend, Jenny, a Thrive consultant, has agreed to sponsor one of our April giveaways by providing some premium freeze-dried products found on a lot of people’s wishlists!  Yay!   Thanks, Jenny!




And speaking of my first giveaway, it’s still running!  Please click here to enter.  Simply post a comment on that blog post, and you’re entered (provided that you’re eligible, please see the rules for details).  If you want more than one entry, I gave you SEVEN opportunities to enter: 5 one-time entries, and 2 DAILY entry opportunities!  Simply follow the instructions in the post and post one comment for each entry method you use.  Your comment is your entry form.


Now, what you’ve all been waiting for!  A Shameless Sales Pitch!


The Dwarves of Ancor: Book Two of The Woods of Arreth

The Dwarves of Ancor: Book Two of The Woods of Arreth


My brother-in-law is a wonderful children’s author, and his second book “The Dwarves of Ancor” was just published.  Please take a moment to check it out on Amazon*.  While it is being marketed as a children’s book, adults will love it, too.  FULL DISCLOSURE:  I haven’t yet read this book as it was just published.  It is the second book in the series.  The first book “The Woods of Arreth” was great!  It has a fabulous story which captures your attention and imagination, and it’s very clean!  No foul language or surprises!


So that’s it with the sales pitch.  I promise.  Now, I have a different question for you today…

What’s the best book you’ve read in the last year?  Or ever?

  1. I’d have to say my favorite book I read ever was the Scribbler of Dreams. My favorite book I’ve read recently is Tweak. Both very awesome books!


  2. I haven’t been into reading lately, but its one of my greatest passions. That title alone makes me want to go read the first one. I am an aspiring writer and hope to one day publish my own. Thanks for the follow!


  3. Gregor the Overlander is a great book. It is written for 10-11 year olds but I love it.


  4. Obernewtyn by Isobelle Carmody, also a children/teen book, but absolutely suitable for adults. My favourite series ever. Will check out your brother in law’s book 🙂
