Anybody else having a
slight panic attack about this?
Because I am.
It’s hard to believe, but my second novel, Wishing on Willows, will be birthed into the wide scary world in just 15 short days!
Holy buckets of gravy, where has the time gone?
I have some fun stuff coming up to celebrate the new release.
A couple local book signings. A presentation at the public library. An online Wishing on Willows Extravaganza on launch day – March 19th, from 6-7 pm CST – in which I will be video chatting with readers, answering questions, and giving away six fun prize baskets!
And then there’s the title of this blog post….
The fun-ness (this ought to be a word, don’t you think?) that is happening between me and one of my new favorite authors, Becky Wade.
Have you read My Stubborn Heart yet?
If you haven’t, get thee to a bookstore.
I promise you will laugh and sigh and find yourself unable to put the book down! No questions asked, one of my favorite reads of 2012.
Anyway – Becky and I discovered that readers who like her book tend to like mine and vice versa. So we thought, hey! We should team up and do something fun together.
And voila! Pinterest Wars were born.
One per week.
I’ll throw down a challenge the first week.
She’ll throw one down the next.
For eight weeks.
We’re starting next Monday – March 11th.
Here’s where it gets even more fun.
We’re inviting you to participate!
We will have the rest of the week to attempt whatever is on the picture – it could be a recipe, a craft, a hair style, a posed picture like the one above, whatever!
Then on Friday, we will post our attempts on this blog and our Facebook pages and you will choose a winner!
Just for the record, Becky and I are not crafty people. Which means this ought to be funny. Like pictures from this website kind of funny.
Even more fun – we’re inviting you to participate! We want you to do the challenges with us and post your results on your Facebook! Make sure to tag us in the picture so we can see them.
For every challenge you participate in, we will write your name on a piece of paper and put it in a hat. At the end, we’ll be drawing some winners and giving away our new novels!
Wishing on Willows by moi, releasing March 19th.
Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade, releasing May 1st. (I’m absolutely itching to get my hands on this one!)
So mark your calendars for next Monday and join us for the first challenge! It’s going to be nothing if not interesting!
Let’s Talk: What’s one thing you’ve tried that was an epic, hilarious fail? Perhaps a meal or a craft?
Don’t forget, if you pre-order Wishing on Willows, my publisher will send you a complimentary download of seven devotionals written by me!
I’m guest posting over at Jennifer Major’s blog today about one of the best, most unexpected blessings that has come from being a writer.
My friend Caroline asks me three super fun questions on her blog, Under God’s Mighty Hand.
