It's a Sketchy Reader Giveaway!

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Happy Tuesday, My Lovelies!  Y'all have made me so happy with your sweet comments, emails, and even a couple of phone calls about the changes I've made to my blog.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart because a kind word (or three) can certainly go a long way to encourage a soul.  :D

To celebrate my new and streamlined blog, I'm giving away a letter from my Etsy Shop PLUS the book discussed in the letter to one lucky reader.

You will get your choice of either:

September 2017  "Favorite" book selection, Outlander

September 2017 "Indie Next List" book selection, The Almost Sisters

Each letter comes with a fun set of discussion questions.  Next month on October 15th I'd like to discuss these books on my FB Page!  If you've read either book, please stop by for the discussion.  You can drop in at anytime during the day and participate!  :D

But wait!  There's more...  I'm also including a copy of the book, too!  So you'll either win:

in paperback,

in hardcover.

Both books are fantastic, and the stories will stay with you for a very long time.

Good Luck!

Either one will be a winner because you always chose interesting books.
