I love starting a new year! So many possibilities. I always think of it as an opportunity to erase mistakes of the previous year and start fresh. How about you?
I hear that nobody makes new year's resolutions anymore. The big thing now is to set goals, or pick a word that will be your theme for the year. Sooo, let's pick a word. What would be the word you would like to use to describe your 2020? What do you want this new year to look like for you? Share it here and come January 15th we'll pick someone to win this very cool planner. (So please, come the 16th, check back to see if you won. Check your SPAM folder. Don't make me chase you! If we don't hear back a week after notifying you we'll move on to someone else.)
The Fine Print: This particular contest for U.S. residents only
Kathleen O'Donnell. Thanks everyone for sharing what Christmas from the Heart means to you. I enjoyed reading what you all had to say.
And it's great to see so many of you supporting bookstores and writers! If you haven't yet picked up a copy of Christmas from the Heart I hope you'll do so. Come on back next month because we'll be celebrating with a new contest.
Yes, I have another book out! Excited to share CHRISTMAS FROM THE HEART with all of you. And I'd love to hear where you bought it - some of us are store peeps, some of us are online buyers. Do you have a favorite store? Favorite book seller? Then share your version of what the phrase Christmas from the Heart means. It will be fun to see what that means to each of us. Maybe you'll win this pretty Lenox ornament and a copy of one of my favorite stories, WINTER AT THE BEACH. We'll pick a name to win this holiday duo fun on November 1, so you have plenty of time.
P.S. Remember to check back here come November 2nd to see if you won. Sometimes we contact winners and never hear back. You don't want that to be you!
Congrats to Cathy Genna, who won the copy of Angel Lane. Next month we'll be having another contest, so be sure to check back. :)
Summer is humming right along, isn't it? Is there something special you do with your family come summer? Share it here and we'll pick a name to receive some fun beachy wine charms and, of course, a Sheila book. Since we're celebrating Christmas in July all month in anticipation of the release of CHRISTMAS FROM THE HEART this fall it won't be a summer book. I have a paperback copy of one of my classics, Angel Lane, that is looking for a home. Maybe yours?
You have plenty of time to enter as we won't pick a winner until Aug 10th. So do be sure to watch your email after you've entered. You might just have one from me saying you won. Share those summer fun tips and let's have a good time.
(Winners must reply to me within one week of the announcement being sent out. U.S. Residents only on this one.)
CONGRATS TO CONNIE MCFARLAND, OUR WINNER FOR THIS CONTEST. AND A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO PRE-ORDERED "THE SUMMER RETREAT." I HOPE YOU'RE ENJOYING IT!
This month we're celebrating the release of my latest tale, THE SUMMER RETREAT, which hits the shelves April 23rd. Also, because it's tax time, we're giving away a money related prize, a $25 pre-paid charge card. All you have to do is post if you bought a copy of THE SUMMER RETREAT (or if you've pre-ordered). Easy, huh? After all, I know you want to read it and you're gonna buy it anyway. So why not get rewarded? We'll close the contest May 11th and announce our winner on May 12th, so someone will get a nice Mother's Day bonus. Be sure to check back here to see if you won. We always notify by email, so check your inbox. (And your Spam!) Don't make me chase you! Good luck and happy spring!
MARY MINJARES. Congrats Mary. And thank you all for sharing your thoughts. Many of commented on how it's the little things that count. I'm with you! Although if Gerhardt wants to go above and beyond and buy me flowers and chocolate I'm not going to complain!
That's it for now, but with a new book right around the corner you know we'll be having another contest soon.
Happy Valentine's Day! We're all about sharing the love here at Sheila's place, which is why we're offering you this fun little package of goodies for this month's contest. (As you can see, I have everything you need for some fun in Feb, including a classic Sheila book and some chocolate, because really there aren't many things better than chocolate. A few though, which you'll find out when you read the book.) Share your tips for making someone feel loved and we might just draw your name to win. And guess what. We'll pick a winner on Valentine's Day. So, you have until Feb 13th to post your ideas. Let's share the love!
P.S. Be sure to check back or check your email SPAM. You might be a winner and not know it.
CONGRATS TO DIANE SALLANS WHO WON OUR WINTER AT THE BEACH GOODIES! Thanks to all of you who took time to share. I hope you all have the happiest of holidays, and I hope you enjoy WINTER AT THE BEACH!
