Festivity 1: A super fun (and easy) Rafflecopter contest with tons of prizes, including a $50.00 Amazon gift card. Play today!


A bit about the set . . . Each title is exclusive to this set and was inspired by a favorite holiday movie, then spun into a fantastic love story by award-winning bestselling authors. The result? A must-have romance collection full of good cheer for the upcoming holiday season. 

 

Here’s the tiniest peek into what each story you’re going to devour is about!

 

Christmas shouldn’t be the loneliest time of the year… 

 

Finding herself in a run-down apartment in a seedy section of a new-to-her town, single mom Sharla Brown is down in the dumps and thoroughly discouraged. Hoping to cheer herself and others, she decides to throw a community Christmas Eve party—and receives a heartbreakingly negative initial response.

Stephanie Queen – Holiday Affair – Melissa goes from riches to rags but will she find gold in a holiday affair?

Aileen Fish – Christmas in Connecticut – Can a wounded warrior learn to trust her celebrity chef crush after discovering his secret?

Rachelle Ayala – A Christmas Creek Carol – A reclusive writer is given a one-star review on her life by characters from her past, present, and future.

Traci Hall – Love, Actually (By the Sea) – Two strangers. One intimate night. Reunited a year later, can it actually be love?

Taylor Lee – The Ref-er-ee – With a family this discombobulated, it will take a referee to save their Christmas.

Donna Fasano – Her Mr. Miracle – It’s Christmas Eve and Veronica is stuck in a nearly deserted seaside town… She needs a miracle.

P.S. A huge congrats to last month’s (July 2018) lucky winner: Pat Hansen!

*While on holidays this summer, I picked up a super fun little game called “Lit Chat – Conversation Starters About Books and Life” published by Book Riot. (If you’re in love with reading themed, bookish gifts, you will definitely want to visit their online shop!) Most of my 1st Friday Fun questions will be coming from there for the next foreseeable months, and since I know you guys are almost as book crazy as me, I thought I’d share the source, in case you want to grab it for yourself or your bookclub or whatever!

May 4, 2018 – Friday Fun Giveaway!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What day it is? That’s right! The 1st Friday of the month, which means it’s giveaway time here at evbishop.com. Whoohoo! What’s up for grabs this May?

I’m so glad you asked! This month’s giveaway: A signed copy of Hook, Line & Sinker, and, in honour of our main character’s Katelyn love of all things retro, this pack of gorgeous polaroid-styled pics by one of my favourite artists, Slyvia Hart!

 

The photo of this month’s prize does not do it justice at all. Each gorgeous shot captures a hint of the area I live and the scenery that inspires the setting for River’s Sigh B & B. Flipping through them is a perfect mini daydream break! 🙂  They’d also be super cute hung on a twine clothesline with mini wooden clothespins. (Not that I’m trying to tell how to decorate, hee hee.)

ENTER HERE! 

(Having you click above and sign up via Rafflecopter is is purely a way to streamline the entry process. You’re not signing up for anything except a chance to win.) And, of course, feel free to leave a comment. I love hearing from you guys. How about tell me what your weekend plans are? My hubby is away and my sister is visiting. Free Rein (a Netflix Original horse series) and lots of popcorn are in my immediate future, then, once she’s in bed I have a hot date with a book. I’m sure you relateor that you’re jealous, LOL.  🙂

Wishing you a fabulously fun Friday and a lovely weekend!

🙂 Ev

What is 1st Friday Fun you ask?

Every 1st Friday of the month I’ll put together some form of themed giveaway, sometimes related to my books, sometimes fitting with River’s Sigh B & B themes, sometimes something more generic (but still super fun!). 🙂 🙂

All you have to do is show up and follow the “comment suggestion” on the Giveaway’s thread and you’ll be entered for a chance to win.

Wishing you a very fun Friday,

P.S. Sadly, cupcakes, especially ones as deliciously decadent as the one in the Friday Fun picture above, don’t travel well in the mail. Or that’s my excuse for hoarding those types of goodies for myself, anyway. 😉 You’ll have to buy your own sweets.  🙂

***March 16, 2018 Update*** WE HAVE A WINNER!

Lucky Michelle Pierce will be receiving our March 1st Friday Fun goodies in the mail very soon!

It was super fun to have so many of you come out and share whether you have mad fire building skills (or the opposite of that, LOL!) Please join us for April’s 1st Friday Fun on April 6th, for a chance to win another super fun T.B.A. prize!

Win BIGGER THINGS by Ev Bishop from Goodreads!

How can it be September already? Crazy!

Sad as I am to wave farewell to summer, there are aspects of fall’s arrival that I always get excited about. And just two things topping my personal list of autumn’s delights are: yummy, hearty, oven-roasted meals and more hours in the evening for cozy reading.

In keeping with those perks, I have a chicken roasting away in beer and garlic and a myriad of other spices making the house smell delicious, fresh baby potatoes on the stove, and exciting news reading-wise, too. Goodreads has ten paperback copies of BIGGER THINGS up for grabs! The giveaway runs for the whole month of September, entry in the draw is free and winners will be announced October 1. Go on, get your name in and share the news so maybe your friends or family can win a book too. I hope I’m mailing you a signed copy soon!
