As part of my book launch, I am giving away a free iPad2!
This is in honor of Zeke as well as other babies and children who have passed away.

Also, 5% profit from every copy of "The Golden Sky" sold tomorrow, will go to help other families who are struggling with infant loss.
On 11/18, this book can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble as well as Abe Books.

I want to give a huge thank you to Lexie Lane (of voiceBoks) for all of her support.

  4. Good luck! I'm not entering the giveaway 'cause I already have an e-reader and it would be better if someone else could win one. BUT I wanted to drop a note to see if your publisher could make sure the book is wholesaled at Ingram, the largest US book wholesaler, so that customers who want to shop at independent bookstores would also have the chance to buy it. Thanks for considering it and best of luck with your book launch!
