I'm not sure how to explain just how much it means to an author to have readers enjoy her work enough to recommend it personally to others. I know that, in doing that, you are trusting me to keep putting out books that you can feel good about having steered your friends and family toward. I don't take that lightly.
I wish I could somehow personally thank each and every one of you who has recommended my books, whether in person or via a review or in your social media. Please know that I am deeply, deeply grateful for it.
Now, using the wonderful tool that is random.org, I have selected from amongst all the comments a winner for the fabulous giveaway prize: a cute bag, a "Live in Hope" journal, and a signed copy of the winner's choice of any one of my books. And the winner is...
ashley. (who was introduced to my books by Karen Hodges)
If you will shoot me off an email via the contact link at the top of the page, I'll get that prize off to you as soon as possible!
Thank you again to everyone who entered, to everyone who has supported my books, and for the many, many words of encouragement I have received.
There will be another giveaway on the blog in the next few days!!
