Friday Freebie and Special Announcement


Today's forecast for St. Peters: Mostly sunny, high 60 degrees. It's a beautiful day today. As soon as I finish printing off my entries for the Missouri Writers' Guild contests, I'm going to head outside and enjoy the sun!

Costco is offering their members a chance to win a signed copy of HOTEL ON THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET by Jamie Ford. I've heard great things about Ford's novel, which is described by Pennie Clark Ianniceiello, the book buyer for Costco, as a powerful love story that "transports readers effortlessly to 1940s Seattle, where the city's jazz scene is blossoming and the once compatible Japanese and Chinese communities are now at odds."

Here are the details to enter. Print your name, membership number, address, and daytime phone number on a postcard or letter and mail to: Jamie Ford, The Costco Connection, P.O. Box 34088, Seattle, WA 98124-1088 or e-mail to with "Jamie Ford" in the subject line.

I'm so excited about the following special announcement:

Next week Donna's Book Pub is one of the blogs selected to participate in the WOW! Book Blog Tour. On Tuesday, Feb 10, the featured author on my blog will be Janice Lynne Lundy, who serves as an interfaith spiritual guide to tens of thousands of women throughout the United States through her nationally syndicated magazine column in Women's LifeStyle. She will visit us here at DBP to chat about living as your truest self and living with a wide open heart. I will also discuss my reaction to Lundy's latest book, "Your Truest Self, Embracing the Woman You Are Meant to Be," published by Ave Maria Press.

So please stop back on Tuesday to visit with Janice!

Take care, and take time to write!

  2. Hi Tricia,
