I've redrawn because the person whose name I drew last week never responded to claim her prize. Lucky thing for:


SuzyQ, please send your address to to claim your copy of The Preacher's Wife and the cup & saucer.

Fun fact:
This weekend Mary Connealy, Julie Miller, Bobbi Smith and I signed our new books at Dog-eared Books in Independence, Missouri - it's a Kansas City suburb. Tina, the owner of the store, told me the cup & saucer pictured here are like her grandmother's set. She only completed her china set after a great deal of searching - and she told me she finally spent something like $139 on the salt and pepper shakers to finish out her set. I thought that was a fun bit of trivia for you.

Okay, moving right along to the spanking new copy of Christmas Gold and the other teacup (like Tina's grandmother's)....

The names are all in the fishbowl - and the winner is....

Eva Minaskanian

At least I only had to type Eva's name and not pronounce it - LOL

Whoo hoo, Suzy and Eva!

Now, for an additional surprise and more fun - I have two gently used copies of Christmas Gold, because I've been buying them online when I can find them, and I'd like to give those away, too. So I'm drawing two more names from the fishbowl.

The winners are....

Connie Lorenz and Kimmy Lane

Each of you will receive an autographed [used] copy of Christmas Gold and a shiny silver Harlequin pen.

Now -- ALL the names are going back into the fishbowl for another drawing. This is a special month, celebrating The Preacher's Wife, so I'm going to announce a new drawing very soon--any minute actually. Remember to check back here often, especially on Mondays, to claim your prizes.

I'll post pics of the signing soon - they're on my camera.

  6. Congratulations Everyone! Sorry I'm so late getting to it, I've just nicely gotten home from helping my mother-in-law with some yard work. It was a long, but rewarding day. Next week, we'll tackle our yard work. Many hands make light work, as they say!

  7. Lucky, Lucky day for some people! Thanks Cheryl for being so generous!

  8. Oh, can we still enter the drawing? :)

  9. Yes! To enter send your addresss to me at

  10. Cheryl, thanks for another chance to win. I have been gone for a few days and have not had a chance to pick up The Preachers Wife.
