One year ago this week, Stubborn Heart, my first novel, was published. This week also marks one month since the release of Sharing Heart, the sequel to Stubborn Heart. Both books have been very well received, and readers have left some pretty awesome reviews. I think it’s time for a celebration.
What better way to celebrate than a giveaway? So, let’s have a contest. A lot of you know me, so you know I won’t make it too difficult. I want you to send me an email message. In this message, I want you to tell me about your favorite hobby. I don’t care if it’s reading, baking, playing softball, basket weaving, or running naked around your complex at three in the morning. Of course, if you do run naked around your complex at three in the morning, I may require photographic validation that this activity indeed, takes place. Just kidding. Maybe. Seriously, tell me about your favorite hobby. What got you started doing it? What do you enjoy about it? Why do you keep doing it? Tell me whatever you want that gives me a little insight into you, and why this hobby is important to you.
This contest plays into one of my favorite hobbies, getting to know people. So, that’s what I’m getting out of this. I get to find out one little factoid about you. And what do you get in return? Nothing. Well, unless you’re the winner. I’ll give one lucky person an autographed paperback copy of Stubborn Heart and Sharing Heart. That’s right, both books, signed by me. And it won’t cost you one penny. I’ll even throw in the postage.
Now for the boring little details…
First, I’m sending out this contest via multiple social media feeds. So to make certain I get your entry, do not submit as a reply to this post. That includes to my website, where you’re reading this. I’m having a problem with spam, and I haven’t figured out a way around it. Until I do, I don’t allow comments to my posts.
Send me your contest entry as a separate email message to email@example.com.
The contest ends on Sunday, May 4, 2013 at 8:00 pm (EST), and I will choose one winner from the entries received. I will notify the winner by email on Tuesday, May 6, 2014.
After breaking up with his cheating boyfriend, Mark Smith keeps life simple: his nursing career and a place of his own, but no dating. He’s steering clear of romance and the heartbreak that goes with it. After losing both parents and having all his relationships fail, he figures happily ever after is a myth.
When Dr. Trevor Hayes crosses Mark’s path at the hospital, he falls hard for Mark. The attraction is clearly mutual, and Trevor is determined to parlay that attraction into a relationship. Mark is just as determined to avoid exactly that.
But Trevor chips away at Mark’s resistance, and facing hardship and sorrow together brings them closer. Still, Mark can’t shake his belief that their romance is temporary—until he’s unexpectedly faced with the danger that he might lose Trevor for good. Mark must choose between guarding his heart and giving it completely, the risk he swore never to take again.
