Woman's Day Book Giveaway Contest - Nantucket Island

(Image from Women's Day website)


Today's forecast for St. Peters, MO: Isolated showers, high 60 degrees.

Yesterday's visit with George Singleton was informative and so much fun. I hope you all are inspired to write--and to run out and buy one of George's books.

Over the weekend I found out that in July we will be traveling to Massachusetts for a Volkenannt/McMullan family reunion. Walt, Julie, Walter Erik, and I lived in Massachusetts in the early 70s. Erik was born in Holyoke, MA, in 1972, so it will be a bittersweet journey for us. Last night I told Cari and Michael about the trip. They are not looking forward to the long car ride, but they are looking forward to visiting with the McMullan clan and are excited to see the ocean again. I hope to get to Cape Cod, where Walt and I spent our honeymoon.

So, what does a trip to Massachusetts have to do with Donna's Book Pub? How about a chance to win a free book? Woman's Day magazine is sponsoring a contest to give away five copies of Nantucket: Island Living, published by Harry N. Abrams Books. Approx. retail value: $40. I've already put my name in the hat to win a copy, and I've got my fingers crossed. If you want a chance to win a copy of the book, here's the link:

Tomorrow I will announce the winner of Dianna and Don Graveman's book about St. Charles. Stay tuned!
