August Giveaway

August giveaway 2020It’s time for a giveaway! August 20-28! Giving you a chance to win books makes me happy, especially during this time when for the past 30 years I’ve been starting school. Since I’m no longer in the teacher workforce, I’m focusing on reading and writing and enjoying my blog.

IMG_E7487I chose Melissa Wardwell’s Dance and Be Glad to giveaway this month. This is one of her contemporary fiction novels. I’ve read all of her work and have followed her writing career since the beginning. Dance and Be Glad is about Jillian Matthews who has two priorities–her daughter and her dance studio. Her husband died nine years before. She refused to open herself up to love again. Dr. Michael Emerson was happy with his life as a bachelor after a messy divorce. I won’t tell you any more. I hope you win, but if not you can order your copy from Amazon with this link: Dance and Be Glad.

Draw Me to Your Side cover (2)I’ve paired that novel with my book four Draw Me to Your Side. This is historical fiction set in 1776 Charles Town. I hope someone wins this and joins Elizabeth and Louis on a tumultuous journey into war. Amazon link: Draw Me to Your Side

Leave a comment for your chance to win one of these books.

    Both books sound like books I’d enjoy. Thanks for the opportunity to win them.

  2. Hannah Corner

    These both look like great reads! I’ve not read any by either author yet. Thank you for the opportunity!

    I love historical books and these look great as I love the covers

  4. Deb Galloway

    These definitely are going on my TBR pile! I love historical fiction and these sound great! While I don’t think a cover is the most important deciding factor in a book I liken it to a great recipe, you eat with your eyes first. With a good book, the cover is the first attraction to the story & I love these covers!

  5. Trudy

    Both of these look and sound great!! My TBR stack is going to grow again!
