Last Giveaway Day!

Good morning, We are supposed to get temps in the mid-50's today, which is totally unusual for our area, but I'm not complaining….As long as it turns cold and snows just in time for Christmas. LOVE a white Christmas. How about you?

Today's the last day of my week-long giveaway. I'm so grateful for your kind and encouraging comments, and I've really enjoyed spending this week together :)

Yesterday's winner was:

  • Dawn Taylor

Congratulations, Dawn! Email your mailing address and choice of book (Submerged, Shattered or Stranded) to

Since it's the final day of the giveaway and in the spirit of giving, I've decided to pick 3 winners today. That's right…tomorrow morning there will be 3 winners announced, so keep the comments coming!

I've saved this recipe for last because it's my favorite. Pair it with milk or a good cup of coffee. It's dunking delicious.


Merry Christmas,

And The Winner Is....

Thank you SO much to everyone who entered to win an Advanced Reading Copy of Stranded. I'm thrilled by your excitement for Gage and Darcy's story. Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. Have I mentioned that I have the best readers? I deeply appreciate you all. The winner of Stranded's Advanced Reading Copy is Caitlyn Santi. Congratulations, Caitlyn! Email your mailing address to me at and I will get Stranded and your gift card in the mail :)

If you aren't today's winner, don't worry. I'll be giving away two more Advanced Reading Copies of Stranded--one the last week of June and the other in mid-July.

Merry Christmas

It's hard to believe Christmas is almost here and that 2012 is almost to an end. It's been a crazy year for me and my family. A lot of wonderful--Submerged hitting the shelves and the bestseller lists. A lot of heartache--losing my mom and grandmother. But God is faithful. He's been carrying me this entire time and I'm so very grateful. I'm also grateful to all of you for your support and encouragement. Because of you Submerged has been nominated for Book of the Year, and Cole has won Fiction Hero of the Year. I'm thrilled you have fallen in love with the McKennas like I have. Piper's book, Shattered, will start hitting shelves mid-January. I hope you will enjoy her and Landon's journey as much as I enjoyed writing it. I'll be unplugging from the computer for the next week and a half to enjoy Christmas and New Years with my family. I have some fun stuff in store when I return to celebrate Shattered's release. Until then, I pray you all have a wonderful Christmas and a very blessed New Year.

Christmas at Rockafeller Center

God bless,
