Melanie (melanieinoh) | 28 comments I am one of those old fashioned book worms that need a real book to hold on to :) Will see what I can find, thanks!

Amanda Stephan (amandastephan) | 140 comments Good morning, everyone! I'm so excited to be nominated for the March read that I want to hold a giveaway to anyone that doesn't have the book and wants to join us for the discussion.

Here's what I'm thinking ~

Leave a comment here for a chance to win either a paperback copy of my book, or a $10 Kindle gift card through Amazon.com ~ winner's choice!

Second place winner (if there are enough that enter) will have to take what's left!

Two prizes, two winners ~ So, get commenting ~ I'm ready to have a giveaway!

*Ends February 18th*

message 9: by Toni (new)

Toni Nelson (goodreadscomtoninelson) | 55 comments I have a copy of this book but would love to have a second one to give away as a gift. No, Amanda, I refuse to give away my personal copy! After all, it is signed by the author.


message 10: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Stephan (amandastephan) | 140 comments LOL Toni! Then, I will enter your name into the drawing! Woop woop! We've got two....only a hundred more to go *sigh* ;)

Easy, there, sister... you mess with the bull- YOU will get the horns! J/K

I am currently on chapter six of The Price of Trust and am enjoying the read!

Amanda Stephan (amandastephan) | 140 comments Teric, I think there's something wrong with my computer. When you comment, sometimes it just comes up looking like this:

blah blah blah blah blah ;) JK!

There's nothing wrong with your computer, Amanda; that "blah, blah, blah" is just your trap flappin' ninety - to - nothin' like it always does... you might wanna get THAT checked out... I think it has a short circuit! :)

(BTW, for our friends not in the know, Amanda and I have somehow developed a friendly rivalry... We pick on each other: she picks on me, and I pick up what's left of me off the ground!)


message 16: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Stephan (amandastephan) | 140 comments ROTFLOL! 'trap-flappin' indeed!

And! For our friends not in the know, I'm a sweet, shy person that rarely picks on anyone. *cough cough* (<---just ask Nike)

Yes, Mr. Darken is an excellent person who is always making me laugh. A lot. And vice versa...


message 17: by Courtney (new)

Courtney (courtneymel) | 15 comments I would really like to be entered in this drawing for the book. I am a new reader, inspired by my close friend, and have recently discovered that I love Christian romances and mysteries and a whole lot more! I have read 27 books since January, I just can't seem to get enough!! I would love to read this book, it sounds very good!!! :-) kcmelone@yahoo.com

message 21: by Nike (new)

Nike Chillemi I noticed Amanda usually wins each round. I'm beginning to feel sorry for you.

Nah, not really. :)

I never win! TD is just a gentleman and lets me...hee hee! Isn't that so nice?


message 23: by Nike (new)

Nike Chillemi TD is a gentleman, that's for sure.

We need to bottle him and send him out to the younger generation...to a few oldies too.

:)

Amanda Stephan (amandastephan) | 140 comments All right, we have a couple of winners to announce....

Wow, that was fast! Thanks for reading it :)


message 31: by Courtney (new)

Courtney (courtneymel) | 15 comments I got sucked in pretty quick! ha ha! It's pretty bad when you're reading and your husband is talking to you and you're not hearing a word he is saying and then he says "Hey" and I about jumped out of my skin. It was a really intense part and I had to find out what was going to happen! ha ha


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

Aw I was a couple of days too late for the random contest, but congrats to the two who won.

Will try and read any sort of sample I can, but other than that I don't have the money to buy an ebook or regular book that expensive. =(

Amanda Stephan (amandastephan) | 140 comments Is everyone ready to have a book discussion?! Great! Because I am too! Hope to see y'all tomorrow, bright and early :)

Alright, so here I am with a bag of water and a glass of chips... It's bright and early, Amanda... 12:03 a.m. to be exact. And where are you? Hellooo, hostess with the mostess... I'm ready to discuss The Price of Trust!

<><+><>


message 40: by Teric (new)

Teric Darken (tericdarken) | 144 comments YAAWWWN... still waiting. 05:19 hours.

(*looks for his cereal bowl and the mainline for his coffee intake)

(For those who may not know, Amanda and I have an ongoing, friendly rivalry. All is meant in good humor. Don't let the cherub face on her book cover fool you.)

Alright, Amanda,

You said bright and early. So, being as that I'm the only happy camper around at the present, I might as well kick off the first question:

I've read in an interview where you stated you had initially written The Price of Trust for your daughter. Can you give us a little background or insight into that? What made you decide to turn a personal story into a public one?

Thanks, friend, and blessings!

Sir Teric, I believe you must be tired. Bag of water? Glass of chips? Isn't it usually the other way around? ;)

Not in my world it's not.
