Everbloom: Stories of Deeply Rooted and Transformed Lives… and a Giveaway!

Friends, if you know me at all you’ve heard me talk about Redbud.

No, not the tree — the wonderful, life-giving community of writers to which I belong.

I could not measure, weigh, or calculate the impact the Redbud Writers Guild has had on my heart and mind (not to mention my career) in the past four years.

So I’m excited to share the news that the women of Redbud have collaboratively written a book of essays and poems (including one by me!), and it releases this weekEverbloom: Stories of Deeply Rooted and Transformed Lives. 

To celebrate, I’m giving away a copy of Everbloom with an Everbloom mug to go with it. Because doesn’t a book of essay and poems just need to come with a cup of coffee (or tea, or hot chocolate).

To enter once, leave me a comment on this post. (Do this first, otherwise I can’t find you if you win!) For additional entries, subscribe to my blog, follow me on twitter, “like” me on Facebook…you get the idea. I’ll draw the winner on Friday.

Happy reading!
