Let’s Celebrate Lakeside Family!
Lakeside Family has been released by Love Inspired! To say I’m excited is an understatement. Having my first book published was a dream come true, but to have another book in less than a year–wow! I’m humbled and overwhelmed.
If you read Lakeside Reunion, you met Josie as the owner of Cuppa Josie’s. I never expected Josie to have her own story, but my friend Ginger said she enjoyed meeting Josie and wanted to know more about her. So I did some pondering about Josie–why she was a single mom, where was her child’s father, etc, and Lakeside Family was born.
I will be celebrating the release of Lakeside Family with a month-long celebration during August. I will be visiting friends’ blogs, giving away free copies of Lakeside Family, drawing random names from my Author Facebook page for Starbucks gift cards and offering other goodies.
Since Josie owns a coffee shop, I figured it was fitting to offer two giveaway baskets: Coffee Lovers Basket & Tea Lovers Basket.
Coffee Lovers Basket
The Coffee Lovers Basket offers a coffee-themed hand towel, 6 packs of different flavors of coffee, a travel coffee mug, Nonni’s biscotti in chocolate and chocolate hazelnut, handmade cards by me, chocolates, a small coffee cup candle, a copy of The Coffee Mom’s Devotional, a copy of Margery William’s The Velveteen Rabbit and whatever else I may decide to throw in there.
Tea Lovers Basket
The Tea Lovers Basket offers a beautiful Romans 15:13 tea set with an assortment of Tazo teas, a copy of Tea Time with God devotional book, handmade notecards by me, a tea-themed memo pad, Nonni’s biscotti in chocolate and chocolate hazelnut, assorted chocolates and whatever else I may throw in there.
- In addition to these giveaways, I will be drawing 1 name every Monday during the month of August from those who “Like” my Facebook Author Page for a $10 Starbucks gift card.
- Also I will be participating in a blog tour and giving away copies of Lakeside Family and other goodies
