Giveaway in Honor of National Library Week (A Reminder!)

I've been hosting a giveaway over at String of Pearls.  In honor of National Library Week (April 12-18, 2015), I'm giving away a signed copy of each of my YA Catholic novels, for adults young and old--Finding Grace and Erin's Ring.  Leave me a comment before midnight tonight, and you could be a lucky winner.  (Let me know which title you'd prefer as your prize, if you're so moved!)

I need your comments by midnight tonight in order for your name to be tossed into the hat!  So visit my combox--oh please oh please oh please!  I love to hear from you.


April 16 was dubbed "Celebrate Teen Literature Day," and on that date I blogged about my motivation for writing fiction aimed at teens (and their parents!).  If you missed that post, you can read it here.

Eager Readers

Talk about a dream come true for an author of a Catholic YA novel: a group of schoolchildren reading her book!  Wow.  There's a lad giving it the thumb's up here.  And is that young lass up front hugging her copy?!  (As an added bonus, these eager readers are dressed in Catholic school uniforms, which I just love.)
These 5th-graders are reading Erin's Ring at a Catholic school out in the Midwest, and their teacher is my niece.

For more on this, head on over to String of Pearls.
