One More Week


And the winning team is: TEAM ROCKS!

The one random commenter from Team Rocks to win a copy of IN NAME ONLY is: Pam Asberry!

Pam, please let me know if you prefer the paperback or a Kindle book.



I'm so excited about IN NAME ONLY. Last week I received the proof of the print book. I had a goofy smile across my face all afternoon. I couldn't stop looking at it and touching it. Is that silly or what?

Finally I moved it to the bookshelf behind my desk so I could work. Now I only pick it up when I come to my desk. And I make myself put it back. One more week. 

So . . .

I would love for everyone to participate in the launch next week by pasting something about the book on your blog or on Facebook. Or tweet about it. Whatever you feel comfortable doing. The book launches on Tuesday, July 10, but anything you do during next week will be most appreciated.

To make things a little easier, I made a page with everything I could think of that you might want to use. It's quite possible I forgot something, so let me know if you need anything else. It's the last tab to the right up above, directly beneath the banner photo - IN NAME ONLY - Media.

If you participate, please let me know. 
I will put all your names in the hat. 
The first name I draw is winner's choice of print or Kindle version of 
IN NAME ONLY.
The second will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card. 
The third will receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card. 

I'm asking you to let me know because it's quite possible I won't see everything on my own and I don't want to miss anyone. You can post in the comments or let me know by Facebook or Twitter. If you haven't yet liked my author page or followed me on Twitter, the links to do so are in the sidebar. If you tag me or tell me, I will know where to look.

I will announce the winners on Monday, July 16.

In other news, I wish all of you here in the U.S. a safe and happy Independence Day. Even though I'm going to be here and be busy this week, I plan to take time to enjoy July 4.

Happy Monday!
