A Gift, A Giveaway and A Great Resource

The Gift


Hello everyone, Sandra Orchard here. Do you like to receive gifts?

For the past couple of weeks, I've been blissfully writing a mini-novella Christmas romance story with a hint of mystery as a gift exclusively for my newsletter subscribers. I soooo enjoyed writing this story and hope my subscribers will enjoy it, too.

Like my 2011 Christmas story, it springboards from one of Love Inspired Suspense novels.

If you'd like to receive it, click here to subscribe. You will receive a link to my 2011 Christmas story within the next day or two, so if you don’t see it in your inbox, be sure to check your spam folder. Your 2013 story will arrive in your inbox in December.

The Giveaway

I am giving away a copy of Deadly Devotion (Book 1 in my Port Aster Secrets mystery series) and to a separate winner an advanced copy of Blind Trust (Book 2 in the series) when it becomes available. 


But this is a giveaway with a twist. Since we're heading into the the Christmas season, I wanted to give an opportunity for those who've already read and enjoyed Deadly Devotion to win a copy that I will gift, on their behalf, to the friend of their choice. 

The best part is that this is an international giveaway! 


A Great Resource

Have you heard of Soul Inspirationz? If you haven't, I urge you to check it out. It is an awesome resource for Christian fiction lovers. And in addition to profiling all the traditionally published authors and books, it promises to soon become the go-to place to sift through the explosion of self-published books hitting the E-market.

And Ellie the host is the sweetest person you'll ever meet. In fact...just last week my daughter got to meet her in New Zealand! Whole other story. ~grin~ 

Because I want people to learn about this great resource, I asked Ellie to officially host the giveaway mentioned above. Just follow the links in the rafflecopter below to play. 

Or click the link to hop over to my blog to read: Ellie's post on Soul Inspirationz backstory!

If you are already self-publishing or would like to be a reviewer, you won't want to miss Ellie's post.

    1. Writing the Christmas story certainly got me in the spirit, Alice. Then yesterday, I decided that I'd better pull out the toy I'd ordered online for my granddaughter for Christmas to make sure it had all the pieces etc.

      It's so much fun... I feel like a little kid who can't wait until Christmas because I want to start playing with it with her now! :)
