This is It! Final Giveaway Chances!

Prizes! Each includes a free copy of my e-book (Sorry, Kindle not included), a $10 Amazon gift card, and a little something historical. Details below!

This is it! This is the end of my Book Launch Giveaway!

Tomorrow, my e-book will be available on Amazon! Hopefully the paperback will be as well…

(If you didn’t see my last, there have been some complications, which mean that the paperback is now waiting for someone…somewhere…to give it the final green light. I’m sorry for the change, and will update the blog when it officially appears on the site!)

Today, however, I will take any final entries to my giveaway! Below are links to the special posts I’ve been writing the last week, along with their individual “Question of the Day” opportunities to enter.

First, though, here are the giveaway rules.

  1. My favorite historical sights are national parks. Yellowstone is my favorite so far, though Theodore Roosevelt NP and Grand Tetons are really awesome too.

    I’d love to go to Pearl Harbor to pay my respects.

    1. Thanks for sharing, Stevie! Yellowstone and Grand Teton are fantastic! I can’t remember if I’ve been through Teddy Roosevelt- we did a lot in the SD parks, but I’ve only been through ND once. Pearl Harbor was an amazing visit- hope you get to make it there 🙂


    1. Sooo… guess who’s name came out of the hat? (Or rather the very official plastic trick-or-treating pumpkin 🙂 ) I know you run an “award-free blog” GP- does that apply to giveaways? (If so, I completely understand!) Otherwise, I’d love to pass your prize along to you- maybe figure out how through my e-mail?

  2. Friday 28 June, 0904hrs, UK. I’ve just starting reading 📖 ‘Whom shall I fear?’ and feel straight away that I’m going to enjoy this book. Since some of the protagonists are English and some of the settings are in England, I did wonder how a debut American author would portray them and how the ‘common language that divides us’ (English English/American English*) would play out, but I sense that it isn’t going to be a problem. No mean achievement Anne, so if I’m right you’re especially talented. [* I’ve sussed out that Sgt James Milburn must be American – am I right?]. I’ve only read 2% (Loc 111 of 5072) and am already intrigued! I hope the problems with the printed version are soon resolved and you can relax and celebrate in style Anne.

    1. Thank you so very much for the kind words- I really do hope that you enjoy it! I’ve worried over trying to set the story on “your side of the pond” and to do it well- (especially with the language and terms etc- I read and watched everything I could while writing to try to get the cadences right, but realize I’m still from awfully far away, (and even other Americans can’t get “Minnesota” stories right, it seems- the movies figure adding one person in with a really strong Midwest accent does it. :)) As to everything else- I’ll leave it to you to see how it came out- again- hope you enjoy it 😀 (Pretending I’m not nervous…)
