Book Giveaway: Hot Apple Cider!
I have a new book out! Yay!!

This one is a little bit different, because I didn't write the whole thing. It's a compilation book of 30 of Canada's best Christian writers, with a foreword by Janette Oke. I have three small pieces in there, and I'm really happy with it.

Some of the stories are funny, some are heartwarming, and many are really touching. One of my friends, Angelina Fast Vlaar, has battled cancer, and her pieces are excellent. It has a Chicken Soup for the Soul feel.

Last week I launched it at Hearts to God, a local Christian bookstore, and we had a great time. It is such a lovely store (I spent a ton, as I always do whenever I go into cute Christian bookstores!).

We sold quite a few, and the store took some for later, so I would count it as a success. And I met some more great women from our community.

Hopefully this summer I'll have some time to write an entire book of my own again (I'm working on sequel for Honey, I Don't Have a Headache Tonight, only from the other perspective, ie. when HE's not interested), and I'll probably publish another book of my columns soon.

For now, Hot Apple Cider is a great read, with around 50 entries, and perfect for putting in your bathroom :)! I'll be drawing a winner for it next Tuesday, the 27th, so if you'd like to win a copy, leave a comment!

And if you don't have a blogger account or a website, but you want to win, just leave your email address in the comments like this: valerie_luvs_dogs at sympatico dot ca.

Get it? Just don't write it out like a normal email address or spam seekers can find it. Thanks, and good luck!

Here just for the giveaway? Why not stay and read some more!

I found your blog recently and have enjoyed popping by to read what you have to share with us (the cyber world) and it's great you have books, too, I just noticed. Wow! Reading is my passion, joy, learning tool, and escape, so winning a book would be brilliantly fun! But, if not, I'll still manage to get a copy and read it.
