Winter Reading

Hi Friend,

This month I’m hosting a giveaway for my email newsletter subscribers. To enter the giveaway, visit my website and sign up for my email newsletter, then leave a comment on this blog post. If you already subscribe to my email newsletter, just mention that in your blog comment, and your name will be included in the drawing. Dont’ be confused, I have a blog and an email newsletter. The email newsletter goes out every other month to subscribers with book release updates. I post blogs 2-3 times a month with articles related to research, travel, movies, and all kinds of fun stuff like these giveaways. You can subscribe to my blog posts as well.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m giving away three romantic stories, The Memoir of Johnny Devine by Camille Eide, and One Upon a Winter’s Heart by Melody Carlson and Married ’til Monday by Denise Hunter. I enjoyed them and recommend them to you! For more info about these books click on the covers below. I’ll be drawing the names of two winners at the end of the month.
The Memoir of Johnny DevineOne Upon a Winter's HeartMarried 'til Monday

I’m working hard on my next novel, Shine Like the Dawn, which is an English historical romance with family drama, faith, and a bit of mystery. You can check my progress on the homepage of my website to see how I’m doing. I have two novellas releasing this fall, “A Trusting Heart” in Mountain Christmas Brides, and Moonlight and Mistletoe, a fun contemporary Christmas story set in New York City. Thank you for being a faithful reader!

Blessings and Happy Reading,

      Hi Sarah, do you mean the winter reading list image at the top? I found it on google image search. I think it’s okay to use it from there.

    I think the newsletter is so beautiful. Every time I get it in my email it’s such a joy to look at. The pictures, the recipe :-). I also love the winter picture on this blog!

    Thank you for creating such lovely things to look at because I think that is a joy in life, especially when you can’t go out into the world any more and see real life things. There is beauty where you make it and where you read it.

    Just finished reading Refuge at Highland Hall and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to reading your new book when it comes out. Scone recipe looks yummy. Will have the box of tissues out watching the last program of Downton Abbey. Will miss all those characters so much.
    Thank you Carrie for your wonderful books!
