My First Blog Giveaway ~~~ Update!!

**Blog Giveaway Update**

I just wanted to let y'all know that I have a surprise for you! The winner of Maggie Brendan's newest release, The Jewel of His Heart, will now be getting an Author Autographed copy of this book...isn't that awesome?!?!?!

Maggie was at the LifeWay Christian Book Store in Kennesaw, GA this past Saturday. My Mom and I traveled the 1.5 hours to see Maggie, so I could get her to sign my copy...plus the copy I'm giving away!

Just so you know it's authentic...here's Maggie signing it for you...

If you missed Maggie's post on her blog, SouthernBelle Writer, be sure to check it out! She's talking about her book signing at LifeWay's National Fiction Book Event...she even posted a photo of me holding the Autographed copy that I'm giving away! Did you see the yellow sticky note on the cover...that was so I wouldn't get the 2 books mixed up...I wanted to make sure I send the winner the brand new book, not the one I've been reading...even though she personalized my copy. =)

Speaking of which...I finished reading it last night, and it is excellent! I can't wait to post my review during Revell's Blog Tour ~ Oct. 18 - 24 ~ don't forget to come back by and read it.

JIC you didn't know...I have another blog that I post on more frequently...http://sugarandgrits.blogspot.com. I'm a little behind on reading, so I've not been posting many reviews lately. I hope to start back by the end of the week.
