Tons of authors do tons of giveaways over two-days time, so you don’t want to miss this!
Especially MY time slot – SUNDAY, 10-11:00 AM EST – which is when I will be posting 4 different posts, each of which will have one winner of an e-book per post, so 4 chances to win!
THEN … those who post comments on all 4 of my posts will be entered for a GRAND-PRIZE drawing of a character named after you in my next book, an e-copy of said book, and choice of a PAPERBACK – either mine or one from a top CBA author from my personal list. Note: If you are an e-book reader like me, you can choose three of my e-books in lieu of the paperback.
AND THE GOOD NEWS? You have all day Sunday to comment on my 4 posts or any other author’s post because winners won’t be announced until Oct. 31st.

Here’s the link and hope to see you there!
99¢ Sale Wing & a Prayer Ends 10/31!
If you haven’t read Gabe’s story yet and met the man who stands up to her (other than her father, Patrick O’Connor), get ready to meet Alex Kincaid, a hubba-hubba hero who has Gabe’s number right out the gate since she clocked his younger brother in grade school. Yep, Gabe broke Victor Kincaid’s jaw in Book 3 of The Winds of Change series, A Love Surrendered, which gives our hero BIG trust issues and understandably so!
So, if you want to catch up with the O’Connors AND read a WW2 novel that Sarah Sundin called “a fun and wild ride,” this is the best time to do it because it won’t be on sale for 99¢ for long.
AND if you have read it and posted a brief review on Amazon, please let me know via my website at CONTACT JULIE so I can personally thank you, okay?
