You're also welcome to contact me about any giveaways you would like to have listed. (Chick Lit only, please, unless it is for a gift card or book related device.)

I’m glad to see that you mentioned the Woman's Day contest for “Born Under a Lucky Moon” by Dana Precious. I’m really excited to be working on this book, and just finished reading it myself. I loved it! It’s a really cute and fun read about a dysfunctional yet loving family from Michigan, and a story that spans from the Great Lakes to Hollywood and back. It’s a touching story and is based on some real life events of the author that include a surprise wedding and, sadly, a murder.

You can read sample chapters and the prologue at And, here is a great review of the book:

Thanks for the mention! Good luck in the contest!
