And The Winners Are…

…Lisa and Janine! I have sent you an email with further instructions so I can get your gifts shipped to you.

I will be having another drawing shortly for ebooks for my international followers, as they were not able to participate in this giveaway…again, very sorry, and I am looking for a way to resolve this issue in the future for printed books!

More to come on the next giveaway, as well as some more book reviews!

Thank you to everyone who participated, as well as Julianna Deering for helping me out with this! This has definitely become my favorite cozy mystery series! I love being able to give these types of gifts to readers 😊

About That Giveaway…

…I have no excuse for my lack of forethought, except for being sucked into a huge black hole of depression and anxiety over the last few weeks.

I did not think ahead about the international shipping issues I would have (even though I went through this shipping something to Hong Kong from my Etsy store…) but I am going to have to make this current drawing for the 2 autographed books strictly US based.

I am so very sorry for my international followers, and I am going to come up with some type of digital giveaway for all of you, whether it be ebooks, and/or gift cards, etc.

Again, I apologize.

Are You Entered for your Autographed Book Giveaway?

Okay, I have 4000+ followers on my blog, and 8 entries so far 😦 This is a free autographed book, along with some notepads and ink pens! This series sucked me in from the first story (which I am giving away 2 autographed copies of), all the way through the 6th. It costs you nothing! I bought the books, got some extra goodies (Thank You Julianna!), and I am paying the shipping.

You will NOT regret starting this series!

Babylon Rising – Tim LaHaye and Greg Dinallo

Wow! Just Wow! What a page turner this story is! This was another random find as I was strolling through the aisles in my library, and I grabbed this book and the second book in the series. As I normally do, I looked it up online to find out exactly how many books are in this series.

I was hesitant to even start this book (series) as not only did I find there are 4 books, but all of the reviews lead me to believe that the fourth book did not wrap up any of the stories, and that at least one more book was meant to be/needed to be written.

Did I want to start a series that was not going to be wrapped up all nice and neat at the last book available? Not really. But it is about Biblical history, prophecy, and the coming end times, all of which fascinate me. So I got comfortable in my bed, or I should say my two cats got comfortable on me in my bed, and I opened the book.

Benjamin and Franklin; my reading partners and all-around naughty boys.

Michael Murphy is a Professor, as well as Biblical Archaeologist. Thanks to a nemesis who is more than willing to have Murphy (as he is called) risk his life to get his hands on these historical treasures, this latest test involves the book of Daniel, and an object that is not only priceless, but will also help Murphy in his quest to prove the Bible is historically true.

This book is one you will not be able to put down; or at least I couldn’t as I read it in a day. The twists and turns will have your heart not only racing, but also breaking, and celebrating all at the same time. There is a group of people who have set out to make all Evangelical Christians look like fanatics willing to do anything, and I mean anything, to get their point across to the public. Who would devise such a plan, and why? And why is this small group of people so powerful that they are able to get a few individuals to do their bidding, no questions asked?

I cannot wait to start book 2, The Secret on Ararat, and hope I do not regret reading this series which does not end all wrapped up nice and clean with a bow on it.

My Soul is a Burden for the Universe – Antheias Ghost

I’m your orbiter
beyond the sky and stars
beyond time itself

I’ve always been here
patiently
waiting for you to come back home

I’ll keep the dust away, because I know it makes you sneeze
I’ll set the table one more time, and make sure your bed stays smelling fresh.
I know how much you love the feeling of a clean bed.

and I’ll play your song one more time
echoing it through all of space itself

my heart

crying out for its lover

a single moment
and everything stands still

the dust settling again
and I’m back to work

bracing my heart, for the impact of your arrival
and making sure, the dust never sits too long.

The Drew Farthering Mystery Series – Julianna Deering

I am almost finished with the sixth, and currently last, book in the Drew Farthering Mystery series. I posted book reviews on the first two books, then quickly read the 3rd and 4th books so I could get them back to my library. I bought the 5th and 6th books in eBook versions for my Nook, and am truly sad that I am almost done with the 6th installment, and there are no more books to read. Hopefully this is not truly the end of Drew, Madeline, Nick, and Carrie and their wonderful adventures.

I am hoping to be holding a drawing for the first book in this series very soon, so stay tuned!
