Win a Free, Paperback Copy of the ‘The Greatest Choice’

UPDATE: Saturday, September 8 (1:24pm)

Congratulations to Melissa J. for winning the giveaway!  Thanks to all those who entered and everyone for the continued support.


Response to the re-release of The Greatest Discovery as an ebook has been so much more than I expected.  I was thinking maybe a couple of dozen might get downloaded, people who had read it before that would want it digital or new friends that might be curious.

In the last week there have been over 100 downloads!

As a very small way to say thank you (a very big thank you), I am giving away an autographed, paperback copy of my second novel, The Greatest Choice.

The Greatest Choice – a prequel to my award winning first novel, The Greatest Discovery – was first published in 2007, but it has been revised, edited and relaunched just last month.  Paperback copies are available on for $7.99.  Ebooks are available for download on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords for $1.99.

Enter the giveaway below using Rafflecopter.  (NOTE: I have used Rafflecopter before on other sites to enter giveaways, but this is my first time using it for a giveaway of my own.  Hopefully there are no snags.  If you have a problem, please email me or comment).  Giveaway starts on Tuesday and goes all the way through Friday night, midnight.  Winner will be announced on Monday.

The only requirements for entering the giveaway are that you have to login to Rafflecopter using your Facebook account or email. It’s not a requirement, but you are more than welcome to “like” my Facebook fan page and subscribe to my blog if you haven’t already (I’m sure your friends would like to know about the giveaway as well).

Thanks again for all the wonderful support and best of luck!
