Winners and Welcomes and Happy Mother's Day

Thanks to my guest Mari L. McCarthy for her for post this week on "Using Your Five Senses While Journaling."

The winner of Mari's e-book, "27 Days of Journaling to Health and Happiness," is:

Clara Gillow Clark

Clara, please e-mail Mari at Mari (at) createwritenow (dot) com to make arrangements to receive your book.

Also thanks to everyone who joined the celebration of Children's Book Week by leaving comments on my post about Children and Mothers and Giveaways.

The randomly-selected winners of the ARCs (who also included their e-mails along with their comments) are:

Life's Beautiful Path wins the ARC of GIRLS BEST FRIEND

Tiger85 wins the ARC of BENJAMIN PRATT

I will e-mail you two to get your mailing addresses.

Again, thanks to everyone for your continued support and interest in my blog.

If you didn't win one of this week's contests, check back next month because I have some more ARCs to give away--and either later this month or early next month I will be interviewing another writer and giving away a copy of her book.

Also, please join me in welcoming the newest followers to Donna's Book Pub.

Mari L. McCarthy
Debra Mayhew

I hope my new followers will visit often and stay long.

Last, and certainly not least, Happy Mother's Day to all of my visitors who are mothers. May your special day on Sunday and the rest of the year be filled with joy, hope, and happiness!


  1. Congrats to the winners! Happy Mother's Day weekend! :)

  2. Thank you soooo much. I am excited about winning the book, Girl's Best Friend.

  3. And Happy Mother's Day to you Donna, for throwing yourself so fully into this second go-round! My kids sent me a custom made fountain pen, carved with my name, to go with the Christian Writers' Guide they sent for my birthday. Now I guess I'd better get serious!

  4. Congratulations to your winners and happy Mother's Day to you, too!!

  5. Hi Karen,
    Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Life's Beautiful Path,
    I'm happy that you're happy. I'll mail out the book next week.

    Hi Marcia.
    Thanks. Your gifts from your kids sound great! Love that they got you writing-related gifts.

    Hi Tammy,
    Thanks. I heard the weather is supposed to be warm on Sunday--lots of barbques, I'll bet.


  6. Happy Mother's Day to you, too, Donna! I know you're a very caring, loving mom and grandmom!

  7. Donna, I'm so thrilled that I won the book! I've had so much teaching work stacked up on my desk this past week (still :p) that I haven't had a chance to get my blog reading done! THANK YOU so much! I'll e-mail her now!
