Fun Giveaway for “The Gift of Christmas Past”

Hello, Readers!

Writing The Gift of Christmas Past was a life-changing experience in many ways. And since it is coauthored with my daughter-in-law Erin, I thought you might enjoy it if I shared some of the links to our ongoing blog tour.

Each blog tour stop has a different post, with new questions and answers or an article we wrote. Some offer a giveaway of the book. All were great fun for Erin and me to participate in!

If you’d like general information about The Gift of Christmas Past, go to http://bit.ly/2nfXaM6

I’ve posted three blog-stop links below. I will continue to add links to this page as the tour continues, so be sure to stop back by here and click on the new links.

Fellow author Lena Nelson Dooley asked Erin and me to each give answers to her fun interview, and it has a book giveaway. http://lenanelsondooley.blogspot.com/2017/11/the-gift-of-christmas-past-cindy-and.html

On the Reading Is My Superpower blog, Erin shares adorable pics and specific parts of our research time in Asheville, North Carolina. You may glean one or two fun tips for things you could do if you go to Asheville too!  http://readingismysuperpower.org/2017/11/28/guest-post-behind-scenes-moments-erin-woodsmall-gift-christmas-past/ 

Litfuse has posted an interview with Hadley, the main character! Raised in foster care and never reconciled with either parent, Hadley is deep, quirky, and determined. She tries with all that’s in her to steer her emotions where she wants them to go rather than where they want her to go. Despite being strong and willing to sacrifice to win that battle, she never quite gets the final say. http://litfusegroup.com/blog/character-interview-hadley-granger

Inspired by Life…and Fiction ~A Christmas Special Delivery by Erin Woodsmall {Plus a Giveaway!} http://inspiredbylifeandfiction.com/a-christmas-special-delivery-by-erin-woodsmall/

The Story Behind the Story with Liz Tolsma and a giveaway! http://liztolsma.com/2017/12/05/the-story-behind-the-gift-of-christmas-past-by-cindy-and-erin-woodsmall/

And now to the giveaway! We are giving away TWO sets of gifts, each with one box of French Broad Chocolates (your choice of holiday chocolates or peppermint bark!), a rainbow tree ornament, and an autographed copy of The Gift of Christmas Past

Our hope is that you’ll us spread the word about the book and the blog tour.

However you choose to help get the word out, please don’t forget to leave a reply/comment!

Only comments made on my website will count as entries. So if you’re reading this blog anywhere other than on my website and you’d like to enter the giveaway, just click on the FOLLOWING LINK to get to the correct page on my website: http://bit.ly/2zCBAn0

The deadline to enter this giveaway is Sunday, December 10, at eleven PM Eastern Time. Two winners will be chosen using Random.org and will be contacted directly.

All of my giveaways are limited to US residents only. NEW RULE starting December 1, 2017: no P.O. box addresses accepted. It’s problematic shipping to P.O.boxes since tracking doesn’t work well.

Helpful Tips for First-Time Commenters:

The third field in the comment form asks, “Got a website?” Please feel free to leave that field blank. (If WordPress would let me, I would remove that question!)

If you don’t see your comment appear right away, it probably went to “moderation,” which is a holding place where WordPress keeps some of the comments until I approve them. Be assured, I will approve it as soon as I can.

    I will be sharing on Faithful Acres Books also !!! The Title really made me think about the past and what things were really like growing up and this is our first year without Dad with us on Christmas, so it will be hard but we will make it special. Lost Dad in May on my Bday, its been hard on my mom to go on with life and I can see how frail she is becoming in her 70s. Each Holiday we need to make special with her now.

    I am a reader of mostly Amish themed novels, and have purchased so many of yours, Cindy, and ❤️ them. You have aspecial gift ~
    How blessed you are to be writing with Erin! Most Moms aren’t so lucky to have that kind of a relationship!
    I am so anxiois to find this new book! Sounds so very interesting and there are so many kids who are homeless, emotionally &/or physically abandoned these days.
    I am amazed at one teen we know, who fits in “those shoes”, and was lucky enough to be accepted into a Christian stranger’s home, where she found the Lord! She has so many emotional scars, much baggage, and yet somehow she is Amazing for what all she has been through!
    Blessings to you two gals, and your families ~ May HE Bless you all with a most wonderful CHRISTmas and New Year!
    Please enter my name in your drawing! Thanks
