I got swag for you.

Comment on this post.

That's all you have to do to enter to win my book today. Easy enough, yes? Yes.

If you'd like 10 more chances to win my book, copy the button for the new cover over there in my sidebar and stick it in your sidebar. Let me know you did it and you've got another ten entries. I KNOW: super easy.

But wait . . . there's more! A major ingredient in this book is Thank You notes and the main character, Pepper Spicer, learns a little something about gratitude, so ALSO up for grabs this week: a handmade necklace of my husband's own design called the Thankful Heart.

HOOOOOOOOORAAAAAAAAAAAY for new books and excuses to give things away!

Also, Jolene Perry put up one of the most genius reviews I've ever seen, genius because it's simple and perfect and I wish I had thought of this format. You can click over and read what her five favorite lines from the book are. She picked some good ones! Also, if you're an aspiring writer, her blog is a great one to follow.

Also up is Stephanie at Diapers and Divinity's review which even I haven't seen yet, so I'm off to read that right now. I love having Stephanie review my books because she is honest, is incapable of being other than honest about things like this, and it makes me reflect on the character of my characters. So check that one out, too.

Don't forget, COMMENT to be entered to win the book or necklace. Put the button up in your sidebar and get TEN MORE CHANCES (but don't forget to tell me you did it. You can even do it all in one comment. See? Easy).

Okay, so I know I totally already HAVE your book, but STILL.

I could do a giveaway, or SOMETHING like that. Or just keep it in all its cuteness on my bookshelf.

Also - author interviews get old because there are only SO MANY things you can ask a person, right??

SO glad you felt okay about what I did with your book. And hopefully we got a few new people to jump in and want to read your book :D Because it ROCKED.

Also - the necklace? That's some mad talent. Pretty awesome.

Okay, i'm in. But just so you know, I never enter stuff. The necklace is gorgeous and I was just in your neck of the woods a few months ago so I will make an exception.

Pretty necklace and I'm SO excited to read your book! AND I put it in my sidebar... which is saying a lot.

Andrea said...

I really want to win a copy of your book (and that necklace is beautiful, so that would be really cool to win as well)!

To increase my chances (and to let people know about your book, of course), I also put your button on my sidebar (literarytimeout.blogspot.com). :)

The Lovely One said...

The book AND the necklace??? I would be thrilled to win either, but BOTH would be really fantastic!

E.R. King said...

Book or necklace, either way it's a win! Great giveaway!

Tori said...

I can't wait to read your new book!

Kent and Krista Stevenson said...

I put your book on my blog, not sure how many people read my blog but I bet I will get asked about it by a few people at least. I have yet to read your newest book, so I am hoping to win a copy!

LisAway said...

Loved the reviews and looove the themed necklace. So awesome. And of course I have your book in my sidebar. Just pretend it was already there before you visited my blog today, okay? Because I meant to put it up last week...

Susan said...

I knew I was waiting to put that in my sidebar for a reason. Here I go...

Susan said...

Button is up!

Jenny P. said...

I don't think I'll feel complete in life until I have one of Kenny's necklaces. :)

kathee said...

I want to read this book, your last one was so cute!

Wendy Williams said...

Hi! I would love love LOVE to win a copy of your book! Or a necklace! That looks great! I put your button on my blog "randomthoughtstoacaptiveaudience.blogspot.com. I hope you get at least a few more "fans" from my page! I know it's a fabulous book and I can't wait to read it, whether I win it, or buy it!

Kristina P. said...

Winning!!

Becca said...

SO my little bookstore in town ordered my copy... and I get to pick it up today. (We're not in a great big hurry around here these days, oy.)

I love your Hub's necklace. He's a pro.

orangemily said...

Just finished your book The List and loved it! So happy to come to the blog and see you have new book out (I hope the library has it)!! Love your humor!

orangemily said...

P.S. I put the button on my blog

Sarah said...

Oooh... another chance to win it? :) And that's a purty necklace -- he's got skills. I can't wait to read this one. :)

Andrew & Sarah Clawson said...

I want your book- AND the necklace. Selfish, I know, but ummmm I wanna! Still trying to figure out how to put the button on my sidebar...

~T~ said...

Sweet necklace! Though, help me out here, would it really go with the boldly striped socks? I'll risk it and enter!

NIKOL said...

Wish that the stripey socks on the cover were part of the deal. But the book itself or the necklace would be pretty awesome, too.

You're on my sidebar, lady!

Katie Dodge said...

Putting the button on right now! Congrats on your book, it sounds fabulous! :D

Melinda said...

Commenting, and putting the button up right now! Awesome giveaway Melanie!!

Joan Sowards said...

I'd love to win. Thanks!

Melody said...

I posted the button on my sidebar.

Thank you for yet another chance to try to win your book! :)

Rachael Renee Anderson said...

Okay, you have the cutest website ever. Really, really awesome. And that necklace? Gorgeous! Talk about talent.

BTW, Totally can't wait to read Not My Type. You're a brilliant writer.

Kaylee Baldwin said...

Is it too late to comment?

Oh, well. I don't care. I'm commenting anyway :) I want to read it even if I don't win it.

Linda said...

OK, here is my comment; I pre-ordered your book and it has not found it's way to my mail box yet....I am thinking of getting the kindle edition if I don't win this one!
Love you

Carrie said...

I just saw Stephanie's post and had to pop on over and check out your blog. I haven't read either of your books but they both sound like books I would LOVE! If I win your book give away I just may be your new biggest fan. :) Love the necklace too. You and your hubby sound like a really talented pair!

Karen Peterson said...

Hooray for free stuff!

Carolyn V said...

What a great give away. Congrats on your book!!! Whoop!

Erin said...

I put your button up yesterday, and I hadn't even seen this post! Crazy!

And, I just have to say - your husband is so talented.

Kazzy said...

I am really excited for your book! ANd Kenny's design and craftsmanship is beautiful. Love it! See ya next week?

InkMom said...

Um, the book I can buy (which is totally better for you anyway, right?), but the necklace? Unique. And unavailable otherwise, I think. So I'll take whatever I get, but I would LOVE the necklace. (No offense, Melanie's book. But you are neither unique nor unavailable otherwise. So the necklace wins.)

Best WV ever: zatifyin

If my chills are multiplyin and the power you're supplyin is electrifyin, then what was the encounter we just had? Zatifyin. Olivia Newton John, watch out!

Stephanie Humphreys said...

The book sounds like so much fun. The necklace is bautiful. What a talented family :)

Brittany said...

can't believe I went to your book signing and forgot to buy a book. Doh! Who does that? Especially when there are free bundtinis involved. But maybe the universe will take pity on me and my penchant for forgetfulness and I will win a copy of Not My Type -- which I've already read and love.

Heather said...

The necklace is beautiful. I would love to win it.
I read a review of your book on another blog and am looking forward to reading it.

Alyson said...

Your book looks great and that necklace is beautiful. My sister bought your book The List and lent it to me and I absolutly adored it!!

Melany said...

I love your book and though I don't have much time to read anymore ( I work on an ambulance-long hours) Your book has been re-read many times:)Keep up the good work. I look forward to reading your new one!!! We have a nothing Bunt Cakes here in Vegas if you wanna come down:-)
