We’re on an 8 am flight to Orlando and then Saturday morning we board our Disney cruise with all my family, (Mom, sister, both my brothers and all their kids, too) and then after the cruise ends, we fly straight to Orange County to settle into the new house.
It’s been a bittersweet month…..highs, lows, and tons of emotion as we say goodbye to Belleve which has been our home for sixteen years. I moved here late June, just before Jake, my first baby, turned one, and now we leave end of June, just before he turns 17.
Because of all the writing deadlines and family dramas (do any of you have family drama?!? Please tell me you’re not all leading perfect lives!!) I haven’t had a chance to really absorb that we’re going….and its only hitting me now that this is it. And then I start to cry. :(
Thank you to all of you here in the Pacific Northwest who’ve loved me and supported me and claimed me as one of your own. I am so grateful that you’ve come to my events, and bought my books, and fed me and my kids…thank you.
To celebrate endings, as well as my new beginning, I’m doing a special Good Woman contest–its a Beach tote and towel, a DVD of the Flirting with Forty movie, Jane Porter books and a little Starbucks gift card, as well as an Advanced Reading Copy of f The Good Woman! Those of you who are eager to read my next book….this is your chance to get it early!
This contest is special, and slightly different…because you’re not just commenting here, you also need to comment on Facebook. It’s a two step process, and these are the two steps:
1 – Leave a comment here, on my blog.
2 – Visit my author page on Facebook and leave another comment there. And in case you haven’t already Liked the page, I hope you’ll do it now! This page is different from my personal page which has reached its capacity of friends and will eventually be shut down to comply with all the Facebook changes.
That’s it. Just complete these two steps and you’ll be entered for a chance to win! This special contest runs until Thursday June 28th, when winner will be drawn and The Good Woman arc and beach bag will be mailed.
Good luck and I hope to see you soon!
