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

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.

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! 

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.

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.

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.
