My First Official Giveaway!!!

Happy Anniversary to me! Yes, it's also Labor Day, and I only really care because it means SoldierMan is off work today. So, since we are going to be so incredibly busy today getting enjoying our anniversary and getting ready for vacation, this is a scheduled post.

In honor of my anniversary, I am having my first giveaway!

Aren't you excited? I know I am! :)

You are entering for this fabulous prize -

It's on the panel on the left under "Books Everyone Should Read." Francine Rivers, for those who don't know, is a former Harlequin romance novelist turned Christian author (so, yes, there is some wonderful steamy love!).

This novel, the first in a trilogy, follows the story of Hadassah, a Jewish slave taken captive in 1st Century Rome. She is Jewish by birth, but Christian by faith, and the sole survivor of her family following the siege of Jerusalem. She becomes the slave of a very wealthy Roman family with (naturally!) a fabulously handsome son.

Of course, these were the days of the gladiators, arenas and Christians being fed to lions. Hadassah has to learn how to balance her faith, her love and her fear. There's love, history (Rivers puts SO MUCH detail into this book, it's amazing!) action, suspense, drama, humor.

The subsequent trilogy installments follow a Roman aristocrat and a gladiator that puts Russell Crowe to shame.

You will laugh. You will cry. You will be challenged. I'll be honest, this is not light reading, but it will change your life. Money-back guarantee ;)

Here is how you enter:
  1. Tell me what (if any) books you have read that have changed your life - 1 entry
  2. Blog about this giveaway, with a link back here, of course - 1 entry
  3. Each person who enters that you refer from your blog (and mentions your blog) - 2 entries
  4. Put my button on your blog - 1 entry
  5. Edit: I forgot to add - follow and get another entry (just be sure and remind me you are in the comment!)
See? LOTS AND LOTS of entry possibilities!

Since we are leaving for vacation on Wednesday, entries will officially stop being taken midnight September 19th. That's a LONG time to get those referral entries!!

I won't be blogging again until after we get back from vacation, with details about our anniversary and trip. So everyone have a great September!

See you on the other side! I've got a date with a man and a mouse :)
