My deepest thanks to each and every one of you who participated in last week’s Christian Fiction Scavenger Hunt, and I hope it was as big as blessing to you as it was to me and the other authors involved. Without further ado, SUPER CONGRATS to the winners of this year’s Fall Christian Fiction Scavenger Hunt:

The GRAND PRIZE of a Kindle Fire and 31 brand-new paperback releases goes to:

Jennifer Friedley

The two $50 gift certificates go to:

Laura McEwen

Gretchen Michels Garrison

My BONUS giveaway of a $50 gift card,a signed copy of any of my books and having a character named after them in my next book, Love at Any Cost goes to:



As some of you know, my Christmas e-book, A Light in the Window: An Irish Christmas Love Story, releases November 9, and not only is this book near and dear to me because my artist husband designed the cover and my daughter is the model for it, but because it is a deep and moving love story “aglow” with the true meaning and Light of Christmas.

The good news is there are LOTS of ways to win it in e-book form OR a signed manuscript for those without e-readers and those who cannot afford the $7.38 cover price. For instance, throughout November on Facebook, I will be posting about ways each of us can share our light at Christmas, so stop by and leave a comment to have your name tossed into the hat for one of FIVE giveaway copies of A Light in the Window. Details and my FB Author Page link can be found on my CONTEST page, where I am also giving away a Kindle Fire loaded with A Light in the Window or an equivalent Gift Card to Amazon AND also have another contest to have a character named after you and a $50 gift card and free book. Here’s more about the story:

One Woman. Two Men.

One stirs her pulse and the other her faith.

But who will win her heart?

Marceline Murphy is a gentle beauty with a

well-founded aversion to rogues. But when two of Boston’s

most notorious pursue her, attraction, dreams and faith only

muddle her mind. Can the light in the window

illuminate the path of true love?
