This morning, I turned on my computer, checked my Inbox for new messages and saw one with the subject 'Wahoo!' Needless to say, it caught my attention pretty fast. Especially since it came from Jessica Dotta, my friend who is doing the 31 Day Giveaway to launch her first novel, Born of Persuasion.
The email directed me to check the facebook page, and when I went there, I learned that I was the winner of Day 8. Now how cool is it to begin your day with that kind of news? I won two things, a set of gaily decorated magnetic clothespins and a copy of Downton Abbey cookbook.
There are still plenty of days left in the giveaway, so check every day on Jessica's author page and enter. Today's giveaway is a pattern for an apron that might have been worn by our grandmothers. If that doesn't interest you, check back tomorrow and the next day. Enter for the items that appeal to you. And of course, enter for the lovely painting of stacked teacups which will be given at the end of the promotion.
Check on Day 10 as one of the giveaways is a book with one of my stories in it that deals with tea parties. The winner gets an autographed copy.
You can pre-order Jessica's book at Amazon here at a reduced price. The book will be released next month, so you won't have to wait long to read it. Help me spread the word. It will make Jessica keep smiling just as she is in this picture.
Jessica Dotta, author of Born of Persuasion
