A $25 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway -- Just Because!

This house is pretty. And so are the leaves. :)
So, as most of you know, I just returned from a writer's conference. I also spent a week in Iowa with my awesome friend Melissa Tagg so I could attend her book launch party.

In Iowa, the weather was beautiful. The leaves hadn't started to turn colors yet, but fall was definitely in the air.

I returned to 90-degree weather in Phoenix. Now, I'm not complaining too much, because it means it'll only be in the 60s in December -- and since I'm not a fan of snow, this works for me.

But the mornings and evenings have started to hint at autumn, which is my favorite time of year (hmmm, maybe my birthday, anniversary, and Thanksgiving have something to do with this?).There's something fresh and crisp about the fall months.

To me, fall signals time to refocus my goals, to spend time with loved ones, to settle into the rest of the year...and lots of reading!! Because as it gets chillier (and yes, 60 degrees is chilly to me), I love curling up with books at night on my back porch.

So in contemplating all this, I thought...why not share the autumn love with books? And even better, a gift card to buy books (or whatever else makes you happy)!

I am so incredibly grateful to you, my readers, followers, and friends, and want to say thanks by running a giveaway. The prize is a $25 Amazon gift card. I'm running the giveaway through Rafflecopter on Facebook.

Simply go to my Facebook author page here, like the page if you haven't already, then enter! You can earn extra entries by sharing about the contest on Facebook and tweeting about it on Twitter. I'd appreciate your help in spreading the word! The contest will run for a week (it ends October 1, 2013, at midnight; only U.S. residents eligible).

Thanks again for all the love and support! I'm so incredibly blessed by you.

Your Turn: Is it feeling like fall in your neck of the woods? What's your favorite thing about fall?

  2. Fall carries that sense of new beginnings. I'm not a big winter fan either...okay, I downright hate it. So, spring is my fave season. But I hold a wealth of sentimental love for autumn as well. From red cheeks to curling my fingers up in my shirt sleeves; from searching for the best fire-red leaf to wrapping my hands around a cozy mug. There's just something about it. :) And yes...curling up with books... & fuzzy socks! :)
    I'm glad you got to go to the conference. Wish I could've gone. It's so encouraging to connect with other writers. I'll def share you post.

    2. I'm not a huge winter fan either, Crystal, at least once Christmas passes. I so prefer fall, spring, and summer...although summer gets a little TOO warm here!

  3. I'm seeing some fall weather here! And it's my favorite too. I love hoodies and apple cider. Chili and bonfires. Tons of soups. 60s in December? Jealous. It still gets cold here even though we rarely have snow.

  4. We're definitely seeing hints of fall here. Our local mountain, Pikes Peak, got it's first snow two days ago, and was gorgeous in white! Leaves are just starting to turn and the shadows remind me fall is here. I stare in fascination at all the brilliant colors of the leaves. I love Pumpkin Spice lattes, apple cider and sweater weather. Just that sense of the crisp air and seeing your breath...I love autumn. :)

    Great giveaway. I'm hoping to participate later in the day! I already liked your page. ;)

  7. Hi Lindsay! It's nice to meet you! I'm here from Gabrielle's post on Facebook. :)

    It is feeling a little "fallish" here, and what I love most is the cooler weather and the crisp air.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    1. Welcome here, MIchelle! Thanks for stopping by. I agree about the cooler weather. After a summer full of 100-something degree days, I'm loving the drop in temperature!

  8. I saw a post on Pinterest, It was a bathroom with a fireplace by the sunken tub. It looked so cozy. That would be a dream come true to bathe with a fireplace glowing nearby in the fall!
    Thanks for the giveaway and nice to meet you!
