Summer Clearance Giveaway #3

Well here we are. Several of you entered the first 2 giveaways, whether or not you won a book this time around keep entering for any titles you are interested in. If anyone doesn’t give titles in their comment they will get a choice of the titles left by the time their name comes up as one of the lucky new owners of some of my book surplus.

First off the winners from Giveaway #2 and their new to them books:
Charity and Jo – Bridegrooms by Allison Pittman
Linda – Once Blind by Kay Marshall Strom
Julia – Ruby Among Us by Tina Forkner
Ashley – Guardian of the Flame by T L Higley
Brenda – Sister’s Secret by Wanda Brunstetter

[you all should have received an Email from me requesting mailing addresses if I don’t already have it from an earlier giveaway (you know who you are) – if for some reason you miss the email you can use the contact form at the top of any of my blog pages. If I don’t hear back from anyone by June 30, a new name will be drawn from the entrants for that giveaway to receive the unclaimed title(s).]

Now on to the books for Giveaway #3:

Leave It To Chance & Ruby’s Slippers (ARCs)

Sacred Cipher & In the Shadow Of the Cypress (final edition review copies)

Treasure Principle (different cover than the above graphic because it is an earlier edition released by Multnomah before they were acquired by Random House and became a sister imprint to Waterbrook)

These are all used copies in that I have read them or started to and are all in nearly new condition. An ARC is an Advanced Reader Copy or Edition as the terminology is used interchangeably.

To Enter:
Leave a comment with an email address I can reach you at if your name is drawn & which title/titles you are interested in. I will draw names for all above listed books in two weeks and notify the winners as well as post them on the next post listing the new set of books I’m giving away.
