HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY AND GIVEAWAY!


A Couple Days EARLY!
 
 
To celebrate, I'm having a giveaway. One of my publishers cleaned out her warehouse and sent me a box of my books. Now my closet looks like Fibber McGee and Molly's closet. If you've never heard of these people, (you young things) they were a husband and wife team that had a radio show from 1935 to 1959, when they switched to TV. Their closet was always full (like mine) and when you opened the door everything fell out. So you have a picture of my closet. Boxes stacked on top of boxes. I would very much appreciate your help in cleaning out my closet, so I'm giving away one paperback copy of my YA paranormal novel LISTEN TO THE GHOST and one paperback copy of my YA contemporary novel REBEL IN BLUE JEANS.
 
It's easy to enter. Just email me at Beverlysmcclure (at) aol (dot) com. Tell me which book you'd like and you'll be in a drawing for a copy. Free. The cats will draw the winning entries.
 
Thank you for helping to unclutter my closet.




A girl's quest to discover the truth not only about her ghost but about herself, as well. The story is set in Charleston, South Carolina, where, according to legend, many old houses have a resident ghost. Dream Realm Award Finalist.









What's a girl to do when her mother runs away with the drummer in a rock band, her friendly relationship with the boy on the neighboring ranch turns serious, and a handsome college guy with a bad reputation takes an interest in her?






Happy Reading!

  2. That's cool they sent you the books rather than tossing them!
    Have a great Valentine's Day weekend.

    1. Yes, I'm glad she sent them, Alex. I'll probably give some to the library's book sale and my granddaughter volunteers at CASA, and I've given them books before for the children there.

  5. Both your books sound good, but I'm a sucker for ghosts stories. I'll hop on over to your email and enter the drawing.

    The selects? Please let your cat know I like cats. :-)

    1. That was supposed to be "The cat selects?"

    2. Gotcha. How it works. I write the names on a slip of paper. Put the papers in a hat and the cats, whichever one is willing, will choose the winner. It's really cute. Patches especially likes to dig through the papers. I have some pictures of her with other contests. Will try to get pictures this time too.

    3. Thanks, Elizabeth. Ghosts stories are some of my favorites too. And there are plenty of ghost legends in Charleston.

  6. These look great. I prefer ebooks, so I'll take a look at those formats. Happy Valentine's Day.

    1. Thanks, Medeia. There are several places where I can donate the books, like CASA that works with children in foster care to find permanent homes for them, and also libraries and schools.

  7. What a lovely thing that your publisher gave you books and that you're in turn passing them on. I can't take paperbacks, but I'm sure your books will go to good homes. Happy Valentine's Day to you too! :)

    1. I'm pleased that she sent them, Lexa. I'll likely donate some to CASA, that works with children/teens in foster care. One of my granddaughters volunteers there. Also libraries and schools and other places.

  8. Have you thought about checking around with local fairs and markets? You might be able to set up a table and sell some of them... The fees for the tables can be a little high, but you may be able to make $$$ doing it. Just depends on the fee vs. the price point for your books.

    1. Good idea, Stephanie. I'll try that. Every year I rent a table at the local Optimist Club craft fair. It costs $25 but this year I earned my cost back and made $25 more. That was a good morning. Have a wonderful weekend.

  9. I've read both books & loved them, both. Beverly, you are a great writer.
