Book and pecan combo giveaway to warm you up for the holidays!


Snow’s falling and the first fire of the year is crackling in our fireplace as I type. The early onset of winter has folks cozy-ing up, hunkering down, and thinking of warm recipes and hearthside gatherings and Thanksgiving.

As such, I have a giveaway to warm your heart and your palate!

The rules are simple. Leave a comment, including one of a few of your favorite things of the holiday season. From the comments, one winner will be chosen at random and will win a signed copy of How Sweet the Sound,


your choice of either 1) a combo tin of pecans OR 2) a one pound bag of baking pecans straight from B & B Pecan Company, my favorite pecan farm in the world which happens to be located in the very setting of my novel, How Sweet the Sound.

Things can get pretty crazy during the holiday season, with traffic and consumerism, frightful weather and “needful things,” but my prayer is that this giveaway will be a warm and peaceful spot in the heart of one lucky winner. The book will take you away to the Alabama gulf coast. And the pecans, well…who can resist the taste of these little morsels ripened under the summer sun and in the ocean breeze?

The contest will run throughout this week, so pass it along.

Winners will be announced Friday morning. 

Best wishes to all, and warm hugs from our home to yours!
