Spring Fling Giveaway!

The ladies at The Secret's in the Sauce are hosting a Spring Fling. As part of that, I am giving away 1 book to 1 lucky winner! You get to choose the book from this list:


The Weekend Novelist, by Robert J. Ray - A dynamic 52-week program to help you produce a finished novel, one weekend at a time.


If You Want to Write, by Brenda Ueland - I just finished reading this book on the recommendation of Jenners. It's a remarkable book about being true to yourself and pouring your creativity onto the page.


Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, by Rebecca Wells - Women, friendships, mothers and daughters. Laughter, tears, pain and understanding.


Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons, by Lorna Landvik - A story of the friendships forged in a book club.


A Parchment of Leaves, by Silas House - Eastern Kentucky in the early 1900s. A fantastic story from one of Kentucky's best writers. His words flow over the page like poetry.


Girl with a Pearl Earring, by Tracy Chevalier - Historical fiction placed in Holland during the 1660s. Wonderful story.


Sundays at Tiffany's, by James Patterson - I talked about this book on my blog recently. Pure book candy at its best!


All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment telling me which of these books you would choose if you win. Easy, right? The winner, who will be determined by random number, will be announced Wednesday. One entry per person, please!
