I’m celebrating today by–well, I’m starting off with an early morning IEP meeting for my youngest. Mom first, writer second!
And tonight I’ll be having dinner with my hubby out because cooking on release day = NO WAY.
This day is pretty monumental for me. It’s been over FIVE YEARS since my last full-length novel released in 2012. Life has been such a journey since, many of those years spent clawing my way out of post kid-in-a-hospital-for-a-long-time depression, writing novellas because 35k words was really pushing the limits of what I could do in the midst of my mess, and just in general healing. Lots and lots of healing.
But today is not a day for looking back and dwelling, but for celebrating the NOW that God has gifted us with, and today, that NOW for me is another dream come true in written form.
And what better way to celebrate The Engagement Plot’s release than with a CELEBRATION GIVEAWAY?
So here’s my thought. Since this release day party is virtual, I thought I’d give away a few of my favorite things — many of which, if I WERE having a party in person, I’d totally have there:
The winner will get:
A Brownie Mix. (I’d make it for you in advance but… not sure how well that would ship. But this is my FAVORITE BROWNIE MIX even though it is almost the cheapest one out there… and when people ask my secret to making YUMMY brownies, this is it. That, and add a little extra oil and take 5-10 minutes off the cooking time.)
A few bucks in chocolate coins. A nod to the book’s plot and just yummy.
Dr. Pepper. Yeah, I’m shipping a 20oz Dr. Pepper to you. If you win and don’t like Dr. Pepper, let me know, and I’ll drink it in your honor instead.
One of my kids — just kidding. They wouldn’t ship well. But they ARE some of my favorites in this world!
A $25 Amazon gift card for you to purchase The Engagement Plot (ha!) plus whatever else you want! (You don’t really have to buy the book with it, especially if you already HAVE the book. That was just a fun suggestion.)
*Please notice that there are no vegetables in this giveaway. Because they are not a few of my favorite things. Even though I wish they were. I could lose weight MUCH easier that way.
