All the posting I’ve done recently about contests makes me want to do a giveaway myself. I wanted to do one where I could hear everyone’s stories, and make it tie to the good feelings of the holiday season. The recent kindness of a friend helped me determine exactly what to do.
Maria Grazia Swan is an author with an absolutely beautiful soul. I recently needed “almost immediate” copy editing for a writing project. Despite the fact that she’s just as busy (if not more) than the rest of us this time of year, Maria stepped up in my hour of need. She not only noted specific problems, but found someone in Belgium to quickly review and vet the revision.
Besides being a wonderful friend, Maria is a fabulous author. Her recent release Gemini Moon is the first in a new series featuring Lella York. This is a wonderful suspense ride that starts in Italy, then takes us to Lella’s home in Southern California. The descriptions are marvelous, the characters believable, and you’ll feel you’re right there looking over Lella’s shoulder.
And you can be there if you win! I’m giving away two print copies of Gemini Moon. One here, and one on my FB page at https://www.facebook.com/ritter.ames. All you have to do to enter is tell of a time, recently or in the past, when someone did something especially nice for you. It can be a huge thing or small, but it was something meaningful to you and your situation. I’m not looking to embarrass anyone, so you can keep the details sketchy and use only first name(s) of your benefactor(s)–or no names at all. I simply want to give everyone a chance to spread joy and get the opportunity to win a terrific novel at the same time.
The contest will run from today until noon PST on Sunday, December 22, 2013. I’ll post the two winners’ names here and on my Facebook page Sunday afternoon. All you have to do is post your story in the comments section of this blog.
And yes, you can enter here and on my Facebook page to have an even better chance of winning! Just leave an FB comment telling your story there, too.
