IT'S TIME to celebrate the release of a new book, so of course, we have to have a little contest here at Sheila's Place. I'm happy to announce that my novel One Charmed Christmas is a Target Recommends selection. How cool is that? This novel was written back when cruising wasn't hazardous to your health. I'm hoping once we lick COVID our cruise lines will be back in action again and we'll be able to enjoy those romantic and exciting adventures once more. Meanwhile, though, you can take a virtual cruise with One Charmed Christmas.
Sooo, keeping with the theme of romantic adventures, share your idea of the perfect getaway here. Who knows? That may be to Tahiti or to the backyard with a hammock and a good book. Or maybe, like me, you're hoping to see more of the world from the deck of a ship. Post it here. We have a sweet, little expandable charm bracelet for some lucky winner and a duo of Debbie Macomber (The Christmas Basket) and Sheila Roberts (Merry Ex-Mas) classics.
We'll draw a name and post the winner here November 15th. That way we have time to track you down and get your goodies off to you and you'll be able to wear your charm bracelet for the holidays and enjoy a fun read. Sooo, check back here to see if you won.
Winners have one week to respond when we email before we move on to another name, so check your spam!
Annie Durkin, who won our May contest. Thank you to all of you who took time to post about your moms. So uplifting to read about those special women who did so much for us!
Mother's Day is right around the corner and, while the day may look very different this year for many of us I hope we can all find a way to honor our moms and those women who have been like a mother to us.
I think this pairing of chocolate and a good book (said she modestly) might make a nice belated present for Mom (or a reward for you for being such a good kid). All you have to do is post what you love about that important woman in your life. It may not be a mom. It may be a step-mom or a grandma or an aunt or a dear older friend. Here's your chance to pay tribute.
We'll pick a winner on the 30th and announce a winner on May 31st. So do remember to check back here. And check your spam box. Sadly, I often wind up there.
This is for U.S. residents, as I suspect even in the U.S. shipping will get a little pricey. (Apologies to my Canadian neighbors! and European friends!)
And our winner is Joye. Congrats!
Come April our thoughts turn to sunshine, gardening... and income tax. Money management seems to be a topic that never grows old, probably because the stuff is a necessary tool. Some of us use that tool well, others... not so much. So it's always good to share money-saving tips. Let's do that this month. Post what you do to save money/increase your nest egg. Who knows? I may share you tip in a future Super You newsletter or blog. Hopefully, we'll all learn something new as well.
One lucky person will win a copy of Chris Hogan's EVERDAY MILLIONAIRES and one of my favorite novels, the money-focused SMALL CHANGE. We'll pick a winner April 30th and announce on May 1. U.S. residents only cuz shipping gets expensive otherwise. Once winners are notified we give 'em a week to respond, so be sure and either check back here come May or check your email and spam.
Looking forward to seeing lots of pearls of financial wisdom.
YES, IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR... and for this contest, gang, I want you to show me some love. All you have to do is post your favorite Sheila book and you might win this fun little goody package. We'll pick a winner and announce on Valentine's Day so be sure to check back and see if it was you. (Of course, we'll notify our winner by email so be sure to check your SPAM box. You have a week to respond otherwise, well, you snooze you lose.)
Happy Valentine's Day!
CONGRATULATIONS TO NEVA WHO WON THAT PRETTY PLANNER. HOPE THIS YEAR IS A GREAT ONE FOR YOU. NOW, DON'T FORGET TO SEND US YOUR MAILING ADDRESS!
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!
