CONTEST! CONTEST!

It's that time again! I'm giving away Deb Raney's book, "A Vow to Cherish."

John Brighton looked forward to growing old with Ellen, his wife of 30 years. Little did he know, he would face the biggest challenge of his life. A tragic diagnosis changes everything.

Deb Raney communicates John's struggles and anguish. She taps into the human heart with honesty and accuracy.

The drawing is open to the Continental U.S. and Canada. Leave a comment along with your email address for a chance to win. As usual, the contest will run through Saturday (8/1/09), and the winner will be drawn on Sunday, 8/2/09. An announcement will be made on the blog Sunday, and the winner will be notified by email.

I know you'll be blessed by this story of love and commitment.

I've never read any of Deb's book, but I'd love to. I met Deb at an ACFW conference and I was struck by how sweet--sincerely sweet--she is. Thanks, Susan, for this great contest.

Hi Susan,
Just found your blog today (from "quietspirit") and I am so excited to find you. I love to read and will look forward to your recommendations!
Wondering if you ever do blog tours (for books from major publishers)?
Thanks for the suggestions,

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Diane -

Thanks for entering the contest. I post here Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. :)

Tissues would definitely be a good idea.

Blessings,
Susan

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Gail -

I'm glad you found me. Quiet Spirit is a good friend. I post here on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. :)

While I don't participate in formal blog tours, I do belong to the Thomas Nelson, Revell, and Tyndale Blog Networks. Occasionally, I'll request a book from them for review.

I try to read a wide variety of genres from romance to speculative fiction. Author interviews are also a favorite around here.

Feel free to explore older posts for book reviews. Welcome! We love readers around here.

Blessings,
Susan

Hi Jen -

A book isn't "happy" unless it's being read. :)

Hi Jess -

Great! I'll add your name to the hat. :)

This sounds so sad. I bet it moves the soul. I'd love to be entered.

Hi Eileen -

While it moves the soul, it also reveals the stress and inner struggles of a caregiving mate. Thanks for stopping by and entering the contest. :)

Blessings,
Susan

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Jen -

Hey everyone - Jen has a contest with some nifty prizes. Hop over and check it out. Cindy also has a contest going.

Leslie said...

This book makes me think of my friend whose husband has cancer. They have been using his illness as a way to witness to others, especially those they have met at the hospital. Plus, they have shown great faith in the Lord throughout his treatment.

Can't wait to meet you next week!

Blessings, Leslie

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Leslie -

Thanks for entering the contest. I'm glad you decided to attend the conference. Give me a call, so we can arrange to meet. :)

Blessings,
Susan
