WE JUST DREW A NAME FROM OUR BASKET OF ENTRANTS IN THE PRE-ORDER CONTEST. CONGRATS TO BECKY COLLINS WHO WON THAT CUTE LITTLE INCENSE BURNER. STAY TUNED EVERYONE. WE'LL HAVE ANOTHER CONTEST POSTED FOR NOVEMBER!
Yes, it's time for a new book and a new contest. This is an early bird one. All you have to do to get your name thrown in the hat to win this cute little incense burner, valued at 20 Euros (the incense smoke comes out the chimney) is to pre-order a copy of CHRISTMAS IN ICICLE FALLS. It's the last book in the LIFE IN ICICLE FALLS series and I'm especially proud of it. I think you'll enjoy it! Pre-order and then post here that you did so or mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org (If you can't figure out how to send a proof of purchase, no worries. This is the first time we've tried this kind of contest and we're doing it on the honor system.)
You'll need to do this by October 14th as we'll be drawing a name on the 15th. Also, we'll be giving away my collectible recipe cards to the first 50 people who contact me. This one is for a fabulous chocolate bark. Sooo, hop on over to your favorite on-line seller and order a copy. Even if you don't win the little house or a recipe card, you can't lose with this book. (Said she modestly!)
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!
