To the 200+ folks who have entered to win a signed copy of my latest book, Rebellion in the Valley - I'd hug y'all if I could! Thank you so much for the enthusiasm I've received thus far ... some of you have related stories of passing my book around to others in your families so everyone could read it & I can't tell you how much it tickles me to know it's being enjoyed. Rest assured, I'm hard at work on the second installment, Anticipation in the  Valley; Duffy is going to have a rude awakening in those first few chapter, by golly!

But for those 3 people who will win copies of Rebellion, I do have an extra special gift from me to you. As I promised last week, I've made bookmarks for those winners. A little extra thank you for being awesome.

In staying with the whole western/historic theme, I came up with these mini washboards to keep your place in the book. I sure hope you'll enjoy them and keep them handy for the next two books, Anticipation in the Valley and Renewal in the Valley - both due to publish this year.

The giveaway contest is still open (ends March 25th) on Good Reads; you can't win if you don't enter, so go to the top of this page, get to clicking & don't forget to let me know what you think of the bookmarks!
