Book and Artisan Gift Pack Giveaway!

Hey, everybody, I am completely psyched about my new novel Paint Me Althena releasing from Desert Breeze Publishing on August 11th! To celebrate, I'm hosting an Artisan Gift Pack Giveaway along with an e-copy of the new book. Keep reading to find out how to enter and what you'll win.

About the Book
When still life artist Ethan Day discovers a fantasy painting by Althena Bell in a consignment shop, he's sure he's found Ava, his wife who abandoned him and their two little girls three years ago. Finding and rescuing her are one thing, but forgiveness and second chances are impeded by outsiders, and conflict between Ava's search for identity and Ethan's new faith might break the safety net he offers. 

Winner's Artisan Gift Pack
Crocheted Hand Towel, Pure Maple Syrup from Wild Rivers Ranch in the the author's county on the shores of Lake Superior, and a Hand Painted Miniature Lighthouse Oil Painting by Wisconsin author, Linda Voelker. Can you guess that Paint Me Althena is set near beautiful Lake Superior, and a lighthouse plays a role in the story?
The Gift Pack also includes
an 8x10 print of this beautiful, misty photo of Lake Superior's Split Rock Lighthouse captured by Minnesota writer Heather Edwards

a signed paperback copy of Life's Moments by Wisconsin author Linda Voelker

From the back -- "This is one person's story of trials and triumphs in relationships and of God's transforming power. It is told with humor and candor. The intent of this book is to bring a smile and a message of encouragement." One reader says, "...this is one of the most beautiful books I've ever read," and from another reader, "...this book put into words what I have felt but couldn't say."

If you guessed that Paint Me Althena has a lot to do with forgiveness and reconciliation in relationships, you're right! Meeting Linda and getting a copy of her book to add to the prize package was a God thing. I hope that even if you don't win, you'll enjoy Paint Me Althena as part of your end-of-summer reading!

The contest runs until Friday, August 16th, 6 pm central time.
Enter by following the directions on the rafflecopter.

Paint Me Althena will be available to purchase August 11th from

I haven't read a book for a long time... I need to get back into reading again. My favorite books are based on historical times.

This book sounds wonderful, especially if it includes something about a lighthouse painting. I love books set near lighthouses.
