I Feel Another...CONTEST...coming on!

Good morning, Bloggers! It's contest time once again at Christian Writer/Reader Connection.

Patricia Hickman's novel, "Painted Dresses," is up for grabs. Two sisters deal with life's turmoil in decidedly different ways. Gaylen Sykes-Boatwright runs from her crumbling marriage only to find herself caretaker for her sister. Delia copes by living life on the ragged edge.

Together they embark on a journey to deliver their Aunt Amity's painted dresses to the designated recipients. Along the way, old wounds and family secrets are revealed. This character-driven novel probes the psyche of two struggling women.

To be entered in the drawing, leave a comment with your email address using the spam-busting format: susanjreinhardt (at) ____ (dot) com. The drawing is open to residents of the Continental U.S. and Canada. The contest ends Saturday, 10/10/09, at midnight. The winner will be drawn, notified by email and announced on the blog on Sunday, 10/11/09.

Get ready, get set - COMMENT!

Hi Anonymous -

Thanks for stopping by and entering the drawing.

Patricia Hickman has a way of getting under a character's skin and revealing their heart. It's one of the reasons I enjoy her writing so much.

I hope you'll visit often. I'm here Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Would love to read this Patricia Hickman work! I have been looking for her work at our local library and have had no luck yet. It is in the system, just not at the same branch that I was visiting at the time. I went to grade school with her and this would be a re-connection of sorts. babpa (at) sbcglobal (dot) net

Thanks!

Not only is Patty an excellent writer, but she's also a wonderful teacher. If you ever get a chance to attend one of her workshops, grab it!

Just wanted to let you know I stumbled on your site from Jean Fischer's site and I'm thankful I did. As a new writer with a new blog page, I'll be adding your blog as one of my links.
I know it will be as much as a blessing to those who read it as it has been to me and I hope it brings a little traffic from my little corner of the world.
Eternally His,

Hi Stephanie -

Thanks so much not only for your kind words, but also for linking to my blog and becoming a Follower. (Woohoo! You're number 70!)

I visited your blog and subscribed. Your most recent post beautifully presented the truth of running to Jesus when we have a problem and allowing Him to comfort us.

I'll be in touch. BTW, I post here Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Blessings,
Susan :)

oh, and I wanted to let you know about my blog address change. *sigh* If you're following me, my posts now won't show up in your feed, dashboard, sidebar, whatever. So please forgive me, but you'll have to change the address for my main writing blog, Where Romance Meets Therapy, to http://jeanniecampbell.blogspot.com. To do this, you have to "unfollow" me and follow me again. Sorry for the confusion!

Thanks for subscribing to my blog. I'm pretty new at that too. But we do serve a Wonderful, Counselor and I'm so excited about this new dimension of ministry He seems to have added to my life.
