CONGRATS TO ALICIA DAY WHO WON OUR "STARTING OVER" CONTEST. HOPE YOU'VE ALL BEEN ENJOYING THE BOOK!
We are definitely giving you all plenty of fun contests for my newest release STARTING OVER ON BLACKBERRY LANE. If the recipe contest mentioned on the home page didn't do it for you (perhaps you'd rather eat than cook!) try this one on for size. Just post your short answer to this question: If you could start over when and how would you do it?
Now, perhaps there is nothing you would do differently. That's okay, too. You can just say something like, "You know, I'm good right where I am." And if you want to tell me what you liked about my three heroines and their hunky handyman, feel free. (Although, while I love it when you all rave about my books, raving really won't get you any extra Sheila points as we'll be drawing a name out of the proverbial hat.
Contest ends April 1 and I'm not foolin'.
And remember, if we notify you that you're a winner, it's your job to get back to me within a week of when the contest ends. We don't hold onto this stuff forever. Especially when the prize includes something yummy!
Looking forward to what you all have to say.
Congratulations to Ann Stewart who won our Christmas Wish Contest! That's it for the contests for a while, gang. But I have a new book coming out end of February so we'll have another one going then. Thanks to all who shared - lovely stories, every one!
We're celebrating the release of my latest novel, THREE CHRISTMAS WISHES, and look at the fun goodies someone will win. Share the coolest Christmas wish you ever had come true. (It's always so much fun for us to see what we all post!) We'll draw a name the night of December 1st and post a winner the next day. Merry Christmas from Sheila!
Tarah! Congratulations Tarah. As you read these stories you can remember your wedding in the gazebo.
To all the rest of you who shared, a big thank you. What lovely thoughts, memories and suggestions!
Summer is wedding season - and to celebrate it my friend Debbie Macomber and I have a book out together containing two of our stories. Hers is FIRST COMES MARRIAGE and mine is SWEET DREAMS ON CENTER STREET (which is actually BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE, the first book in my Icicle Falls series). So we need to celebrate with a contest. We'll send some lucky a winner a copy of that plus one of my favorite of the Icicle Falls books, A WEDDING ON PRIMROSE STREET. Tell me your idea of an ideal wedding. (Maybe it was yours!) We'll pick a winner at the end of the month (so be sure to check back in September and see who won). Meanwhile, if you don't want to wait a whole month to see if the lucky winner was you, feel free to hop on over to your closest bookstore or online book source and pick up a copy. A fun summer read!
CONGRATULATIONS to Robin in NC, who won our Home on Apple Blossom Road contest. Thank you to all who entered. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book!
A big thank you to all of you who participated in our HOME ON APPLE BLOSSOM ROAD on line treasure hunt. We picked our three winners today:
Grand Prize winner: Nancy O'brien
Second Place winner: Sheila Golding
Third Place winner: Rosi Hoak
Congratulations ladies! Contact me with your mailing addresses so we can send you your winnings. Hope you enjoy your treasure. And remember, the greatest treasure of all is love.
For those of you who didn't have a chance to get in on this, remember, we still have our other contest going until the end of the month. And let me tell you, those chocolate coins are delicious!
Sooo, since my new book HOME ON APPLE BLOSSOM ROAD features a treasure hunt I thought it would be fun to give you all a chance at some little treasures: Chocolate gold coins - these are so good! - a vintage piggy bank, a copy of SMALL CHANGE, my money management novel, and a recipe to go with the new book. All you have to do is tell me what your favorite part of HOME ON APPLE BLOSSOM ROAD was. We'll pick a winner on April 30th and post on May 1 so you have lots of time to pick up a copy and join the treasure hunting fun in Icicle Falls. Ready, set, go!
Hey one and all! We will be having a contest here next month to celebrate the upcoming release of my new novel HOME ON APPLE BLOSSOM ROAD, but meanwhile I hope you'll all join in on my on-line treasure hunt, which is taking you to various fun romance websites. The kick-off starts on the Romantic Times website (http://www.rtbookreviews.com/blog) - look for the HOME ON APPLE BLOSSOM ROAD announcement and then the pink envelope which is hidden somewhere on the site. If you click on that it will take you to a hidden page here on my website where you can put your name in a drawing for some special treasure. We'll be keeping you up to date with where to go on the Sheila Roberts like page on Facebook, so check it out. Happy treasure hunting!
