Books, BookBub, and Begging

With Thanksgiving weekend coming up, I have a divided mind. Divided three ways, in fact. Thanksgiving itself, including all the people and things I’m thankful for and all the rigamarole that goes along with planning, cooking, and traveling at this time.

My mind’s also on Black Friday and how I can avoid it while still taking advantage of some of the specials.

Which leads me to the third thing on my mind: Business.

Specifically mine and how I can benefit you–in return for a favor or two. (There. The truth comes out. I’m not above begging . . .)

A Southern Season Soap Giveaway!

Have you been to my website lately? If so, then you’ve seen the giveaway I’m hosting to promote both A Southern Season, a collection that includes my novella Ice Melts in Spring, and a luxurious new specialty soap I’ve found and love. Not to mention my newsletter. I’m always trying to find new subscribers who are interested in hearing about new releases, sales, specials, book reviews, and so on.

For our giveaway, the authors involved in A Southern Season and I all chose a soap from Brea Rose Soap Garden. The one I chose was “Coastal Mist,” pictured at the right, and I bought extra for my own giveaway.

You can find out more about this in the “Extras” tab of my website, but here’s the quick version: if you don’t take my Coffee with Linda newsletter already, sign up for it to be entered into the giveaway. If you do get my newsletter, use the “Contact” page on my website to let me know you want to be entered.

The drawing will be December 17, and winner will receive both the soap and a free copy of A Southern Season! Y’all enter the contest!

Black Friday (and longer) Special!

Here’s a benefit without a “beg” attached: From this Wednesday to next Wednesday, Skydiving to Love will be on sale for only 99c at all the major outlets!

If you haven’t read this romance novella yet, you’re in for a treat. This story is just plain fun.

JoJo Merritt and her friends dared each other to do the biggest thing on their bucket lists. For JoJo, the dare is moot. As a large animal vet, she’s already living her bucket list. But to pacify her friends, she blurts out that she’ll go skydiving.

A curious choice for someone who’s never been in a plane before.

First thing she discovers is that she’s terrified of flying. The second thing is that the guy in the passenger plane next to her is a good-lookin’ hunkuva honey. Add these two together, and you’ve got one fun adventure!

I’ll remind you of this Wednesday morning, but y’all be sure to take advantage of it. Skydiving to Love will be a fun escape after all the craziness of Black Friday and the Thanksgiving holidays.

WANTED: BookBub Buddies!

(My beg without a benefit.)

Are you a member of BookBub? It’s one of the best sites for readers and authors alike. I love it because it lets me know when my favorite authors have new releases and it allows those same authors to make book recommendations to me. Through their newsletter, I get to see other books that might interest me also.

I would love it if you would follow me on BookBub. If you’re an author, I’d be happy to return the favor.

There ya go. Favors asked; begging completed. I’ll try not to do it too often.
