Back to the Books Giveaway Hop



Welcome to the "Back to the Books Giveaway Hop." I've thought and I've thought about how I should do this giveaway and I finally decided the funnest giveaway I did was the one where I had all five of my books. all you have to do is read the synopsis then decide which one you would like to win if you name is chosen. Cool, huh!!

This Book giveaway runs from September 1st the the 7th. There are 304 bloggers participating in this giveaway so you will be hop, hop, hopping from blog to blog. Fun!! See all the links below. My link is 223, Storyweaver.

Now, for my giveaway. First read the synopsis of each one of my books and then choose the one you would like to win. Yes! you get to choose. Then leave a comment.

A terrible accident in a strange town leaves nine-year-old Michael Downing alone and his mother hospitalized in a coma. Social workers place him in the care of wealthy, fifty-year-old, Harley-riding Samantha, and her sister, Hannah, at the request of Samantha when she finds him alone in a park, after running away from yet another foster home. As they care for him, Samantha takes him to visit his mother every day where he sings and reads to her. His voice and his spirit reach out and touch the lives of all who can hear him. When his unloving grandparents try to take custody of young Michael, Samantha and her family fight for him and help to shape his future and the future of his mother.

Callie McAllister Falls in love with the perfect man and moves into the perfect house only to find that all is not perfect. In her search for answers, Callie discovers the journal of young Antone Bellani. As she reads the experiences of her husband's great-great-grandfather, her life takes on new meaning. Soon she sets out on an incredible journey that leads her through secret rooms and hidden caves to those who have waited hundreds of years for her to fulfill a promise made in another time.

After the death of her husband, Betsy struggles to give her own life meaning until one day her mother gives her some advice that begins to turn things around. She begins writing her weekly newspaper column again and, in one illogical moment, buys a Golden Retriever, Dorado. However, through the coming months it proves to be the best decision she ever made. When mystery begins to surround her husband's death, Dorado digs up evidence that leads Betsy and her family on a journey for the truth.

Sequel to Pages From the Past
Two years ago, her husband died. And Betsy's life changed forever. John's death drew her into a world she didn't know existed - a world of secret organizations where good and evil are constantly at war over the freedom of the American people. A world that constantly challenges her integrity, her loyalty to her country, and her willingness to sacrifice for what she knows is right.
Now, she has been called upon to help expose a group of men who have created something so evil that they could take away the freedom of every person in the United States without a single shot being fired - without anyone even knowing there had ever been a war. Clues to the puzzle come together as Betsy and her family uncover mysterious deaths, hidden research centers, and technology so advanced that it has the power to change the world. Now, it is up to Betsy, her family, her friends, and her faithful dog, Dorado, to unveil the truth before it is too late.

Etcheon always believed he would live and die in his small village that he moved to with his grandmother, Granna Fela - safe, loved and protected.
But with Granna's death comes new information about Etcheon's royal heritage and destiny, which suddenly throws him in the middle of a battle against a wicked king. On the run from hideous beasts sent to kill him, Etcheon is saved by a mysterious girl, a tree with magical powers, and several amazing animals. With his new friends to protect and teach him, Etcheon undertakes a journey that will challenge his abilities and define who he needs to become - a warrior-prince charged to save his people.

Yet again, JoAnn Arnold delivers a captivating tale, this time set in a mystical land filled with memorable characters that will make a lasting impact well beyond the story's final pages.

Thank you for stopping by and being a part of the Back to Books Giveaway Hop.
