BACK TO SCHOOL GIVEAWAY

Quote for the week:  Family is not an important thing. It's everything. Michael J. Fox

School bells are ringing. Kids are excited. Some schools have already started. Others will be soon.

I miss those days, but retirement has its good points. So to all teachers and students, have a great year.

To celebrate I'm having an old fashioned giveaway. By old fashioned I mean no Rafflecopter, (however it's spelled) just an old fashioned drawing. My cats will do the honor. If they decide not to cooperate, I'll draw the winners. It's very easy to enter. All you have to do is leave a comment and tell which book you'd like to win. Don't forget your email so I can contact the lucky winners.

The prizes:

1 paperback copy of WEIRD NOISES IN THE NIGHT, my latest story, a mystery for children 6-9.

 
 
1 paperback copy of FRANKIE'S PERFECT HOME, a story about a young armadillo looking for the perfect home, for ages 4-8.
 



And for the older readers in the family an ebook copy of my MG/Tween contemporary story, I LIVE IN A DOGHOUSE, about a boy adjusting to a new, blended family.



Watch for more giveaways this fall. I need to clean closets and they're filled with brand new books.

Happy Reading.

    1. Hi, Janet. I enjoy autumn too. The cooler weather. The tree leaves turning red, orange, and yellow. I do miss the school activities, but read about them in the newspaper.
      You're in. Good luck.

  2. Glad it's something I don't have to deal with. Except getting stuck behind a school bus.
    When does the giveaway end? I can mention it next Monday if it's still going.

    1. Yeah, the beginning of school excitement vanishes after a few weeks of homework, Pat. There's always the holidays to look forward to.

    1. Thanks, Chrys. Your name is in. The story is just right for boys. Girls will like the sister that causes Nick so much trouble. :) I think.

  5. It seems my first comment vanished! So here's another. Your giveaway is a great way to end the summer, Beverly. I'd take Frankie's Perfect Home because I've read the others.

  6. How fun! I just finished reading I Live in a Doghouse on Kindle and I plan to get the others on Kindle, as well. Don't enter me! I'll be paying for your books. Gotta support my buddies. :-) I actually have my eye on Just Breeze right this second. Can't wait to read it!

    1. It is colorful, Kelly. I was doing a reading at the bookstore one day and a little boy told me that armadillos were not blue. What could I say? I agreed. In Texas, a lot of the kids have seen armadillos. I thought he was so cute. (the boy)
