Giveaway! Winner's Choice

Sometimes I just have laugh.

Blogging is never a consistent thing, no matter how hard we try and make it such. So sometimes pulling a little trickery out of the bag has to be done to make sure we stay on schedule. ;-)

Because, after all, I am very much a schedule kind of girl.

ARC
You might have noticed that last week was allll book reviews. Yeah. Sorry. I was all "ooh! ooh! I want to read this book!" and then they all came due for review. At the same time. A week after I got back from ACFW. And none of them were read yet.

Yeah. But they were some awesome books. ;-)

Even if I did have to read them ultra-fast to get them reviewed in time...

I've spent the last two weeks hard at work on edits for my novel due to a request I received at ACFW. This certainly wasn't how I was expecting to spend my month of October, running around like a chicken with my head cut off (farm-girl humor) a-hem and while I am in NO way complaining, some other things have slipped through the cracks, this blog being one of them.

So I thank you for sticking around, continuing to comment and share in the little joys every day life gives us. 

I had a reschedule for today's giveaway slot, so I'm jumping in with a giveaway of new books I have stored away for just such an occasion. Standard giveaway rules apply and the books are shown here throughout this post.

  2. Casey - Thanks for the great work you do with blogging and writing reviews. Fun to read what you think about the books and I find that your reaction to a book is very similar to mine. And I agree - there are so many fantastic books coming out!

  12. Casey,

    It seems that everywhere I look, there are writers running around like chickens with their heads cut off (mine included!) so maybe it's more of a writer thing than a farm-girl thing???? Ha!

    Would love a copy of one of these books!

    Already follow, already subscribe.

    You're a trooper - and how exciting about your MS request at conference! I'll be praying for you. And I mean that when I say that, Casey. I'll be praying for your writing because we headless authors need all the prayer support we can get. It's one of the few ways that people outside our heads can help us!

    Blessings,
    Becky

  16. Wow, Case, I'm soooo happy for you that you're doing so well! Sorry that you're squeezing in so much at once, but you're still a fabulous blogger despite unexpected things popping up :) Your blog is a place I always enjoy visiting (giveaway or not) because it's an extension of you in every way and oh what a blessing you are! I know sticking to a schedule is important to you, but at the same time your blog is never going to be regular or normal and that's a delightful thing :) Please keep up the good work and I will continue lifting you up in prayer for encouragement and wisdom; I'm so thrilled that you're in edits for your novel, I hope you do something extra special for yourself to celebrate when you're able to....Wow :)
    Thanks for the giveaway, but also for being true to yourself as a blogger and as a writer. Your readers are not disadvantaged or feeling ignored and we love supporting you!
    Hugs and blessings Case!
