Burning Sky made the 2014 INSPY Short List....

... so let's celebrate! 

My publisher, WaterBrook Press, has offered to give away two copies of Burning Sky, my debut novel that just made the short list in the Debut Fiction category for the 2014 Inspy Award, the Blogger's Award for Excellence in Faith-Driven Literature. 



To be entered to win one of these two copies of Burning Sky, leave a comment with a contact email address on this post. 


THIS DRAWING IS OPEN TO READERS EVERYWHERE

I'll leave the drawing open until Friday, May 2 9pm (sleepy-head, morning-person, Oregon Time), and announce the winners here on Saturday... when I'll have some more exciting news to share with you! 

Edited to add: Just found this cool graphic (courtesy of WaterBrook Multnomah) for our three INSPY finalists. Congrats to Katie and Joanne. I've read both these books and recommend them (Though My Heart is Torn is the second in a series, which starts with Be Still My Soul)

  8. I can totally understand about being a sleepy-head, a morning person I am not! My husband has relatives who live in Gresham. Oregon is a beautiful state and I love Powell's bookstore in Portland.
    Thanks for entering me in your giveaway.
