I'm feeling particularly blessed right now (hopeful signs on my sister's cancer) so I am throwing a giveaway weekend party for my friends (even the ones I haven't met yet).

Here's the deal. I'm giving away free copies of the Mail-Order Bride book I wrote with my good buddy, Jillian Hart. I know Jillian gave away some copies here, so this is for the people who didn't get one from her (between the two of us, we should be able to cover all our friends here in the LIH group).


I am also giving away free MP3 copies of the full song I wrote (the You Tube I did and showcased here only has part of the song). The song, called Denim Sky, is now up on Amazon as an MP3. You can find it by looking searching the 'all products' in Amazon with my name. You'll have to scroll through a couple of pages of book listings to get to it. (edited -- I went back and found the link for the YouTube so here it is) --

I will need your email to send you the song and your address to send you the book (just send me a message here on Goodreads with the information on how to get either of these to you).

Both are free, but I'd love it if you could post a review of them where you can. And I'm hoping you have a wonderful weekend!!

Brenda -- thanks for the prayers for my sister (she needs surgery again and is scheduled for Dec 5 this time -- her third surgery and I'm grateful she is still eligible for the surgery)!

Wendy, thanks for posting my YouTube on your Facebook. I am just tickled pink with the song (my friend did the heavy lifting on it, but I never thought I could write a song so I'm proud as can be).

Great, Judy and Kate. I hope you all know how much we authors like to make contact with you here on Goodreads. It's a real treat for us to get to know our readers.


message 20: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (welachild) | 66 comments Janet, I'm glad things are looking good for your sister. I'd love to read your new book! I'll send you my info. I looked on Amazon and if you pick Mp3 in the pull down menu of the search bar, your song will come up right away without having to search through pages. I will post it on my Facebook too (great idea Wendy!).


message 21: by JanetTronstad (new)

JanetTronstad Author Tronstad | 2759 comments Mod
Thanks, especially for the prayers for my sister. Although your tip on Amazon is great, too. And thanks for posting the song on your Facebook. I am so proud of the song (mostly because I never knew I could write a song!) --

SF -- How wonderful that your sister is doing so well. My sister is marching forward with all of her treatments like a brave soldier, but we are only able to take it one step at a time. Thank you for your concern. I am so happy that my sister has treatment options.

Ausjenny | 4947 comments Think we need a big chocolate cake with a pic of the cover on the top.

JanetTronstad Author Tronstad | 2759 comments Mod
Now you're thinking, Ausjenny! And I love chocolate -- cake, cookies, candy. Chocolate is the king! And they do those photo cakes so it wouldn't be that hard to have a cake with a photo of the cover on it. Very nice thinking.


message 48: by Susan F (new)

Susan F | 147 comments Ausjenny, that sounds awesome. I can arrange flowers to go on the table. ;)
