#GIVEAWAY 15 AMAZING #Prizes for the COVER REVEAL for "Destination To Be Determined" by JB McGee and Nicole Andrews Moore - Click HERE!


*The Forgotten Seamstress by Liz Trenow - HERE! - I LOVED this one! Love quilts, women's fiction and a great story? This is for you!

*Astonish Me by Maggie ShipsteadHERE! - Love/like ballet with a second generation prodigy? This one is for you!

*Take Me With You by Catherine Ryan HydeHERE! - About a man who ends up with 2 boys, two strangers going on vacation with him! 
Take Me With You is available for pre-order only as the release date is 7-22. The publisher misinformed me of the correct release date, but don't let that deter you! This one is AMAZING! Well, Catherine Ryan Hyde wrote it! (Author of Pay It Forward!)

Worried about pre-ordering books? Don't be. It's easy. Click on the Pre-Order button, and the day it is released, it will be delivered onto your Kindle device! Keep in mind, though, Amazon works on PDT. For instance, I live in the EST area, so California is 3 hours behind me, so I won't get that book until 3:00am. Bummer when you are DYING for a certain book! I got all upset at Amazon one time wondering 'where was my book'? I called and got this explanation. Since I am a night owl, I do notice a TON of emails come over from Amazon at 3:00am as well. 3:00am is California's midnight! I know! Not fair!

Coming up this week:

A Mother's Secret by Amy Clipston - Review and Blog Tour with LitFuse Publicity! #Giveaway will be included by the publisher along with a Facebook party!

Quilts of Love Facebook Party! Sponsored by LitFuse Publicity!

I don't know if any of you have noticed this trend over the last few weeks in the price of ebooks, but I see as it gets closer to the time where the lawsuits that had been won, and the publishers had to refunds money from sales of ebooks, I do see the price of ebooks rising once again. What a shame. I saw The Hurricane Sisters by Dorothea Benton Frank for $14.44! Whoa!!! I won't buy ANY ebook over $10. I don't want the paperback because I prefer to read on my Kindle the most. I love reading on my Kindle, but to spend $14.44? Nope! Again, the publisher's are shooting themselves in the foot. MY opinion, but, for someone who pretty much ONLY reads on an ereader, I'm NOT going to pay that price for a computer file. I'm standing by my steadfast rule - ONLY paying UNDER $10.00 for an ebook. This is starting to irritate me again. How do YOU feel about the increasing prices of ebooks, again? Tell us!
