God Makes Lemonade Giveaway

This box arrived on my doorstep an hour ago~ the author copies of “God Makes Lemonade: True Stories that Sweeten & Inspire,” created by Don Jacobson, former president and owner of Multnomah Publishers, where he oversaw the production of more than 1000 titles and the sale of more than 100 million books. He and his wife Brenda have begun this series of books that are designed to encourage readers, with true stories of real hope and encouragement.  My story, “Courting Through Cancer,” is the first one in the book.  I will be giving away TWO copies of this anthology in a random drawing on Sunday, August 28th.  To make this drawing even “sweeter” I will add a $10 Walmart gift card to one of the mailers so you have a chance to win both a book AND a $10 gift card. To enter the drawing, just make a comment underneath this posting.  To be entered again, share this link on facebook and leave a comment that you have shared this blog posting.  I will announce the winners on Sunday.  Good luck!
