It’s Celebration Time–A Quiz, Giveaway + Sale!

It’s been a WHOLE YEAR since I released my first novel, Jayne’s Endeavour!!!

I can hardly believe it’s been that long already. It’s seems like not so long ago when I was eagerly opening my first boxful of Jayne’s Endeavour, signing copies, sending them out, and nervously anticipating readers’ reactions. ๐Ÿ˜€

Lots of special memories!

And I decided that today was worth celebrating! God has definitely blessed me richly throughout this whole adventure! So I pulled together a little celebration for my readers (who I very much appreciate!). Because who doesn’t like a chance to celebrate and have fun together!?

It’s time for a Book Anniversary Party!!

And (in case any of you were wondering), here’s what’s on today’s party list:

  • A quiz for Jayne’s Endeavour fans to test their knowledge (and memories!)
  • A great sale on both the ebook and paperback versions of Jayne’s Endeavour (I think it’s the biggest discount I’ve had so far)
  • And last but not least–a JOY themed giveaway (you’ll have to keep scrolling to find out the details!)

Since quizzes are fun (and I haven’t done one on my blog before), let’s start with that first! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And make sure you remember how many points you get, because you can use your score to get extra entries in the giveaway later on!

If you haven’t read Jayne’s Endeavour yet, here’s your chance to grab either the paperback or the ebook version at a bargain price (it won’t appear like it’s on sale on Amazon–but it is!). For the next few days, US readers can buy a copy for only $10.95 (normally $14.95) or an ebook for just $3.49. ๐Ÿ˜€ And Australian readers can purchase their copy straight from my store.

Sale for American Readers: paperback | ebook

Grab yourself or a friend a copy for a special price!

And now . . . it’s time for the giveaway!!

Since Jayne’s Endeavour is the first book of The JOY Series, I thought it was appropriate to do a joy-themed giveaway for my readers as a thank you.

I’m really, really grateful to everyone who has taken the time to read my novel, left reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, my website etc, and I’m also really grateful to the many people who have been so encouraging–both before and after the release of Jayne’s Endeavour. Your enthusiasm and kind words have meant a lot and been such a blessing to me, so thank you!

Today’s giveaway is open to international entries, but only entrants in America, Australia, or Canada will receive the physical prize. ๐Ÿ™‚ The physical prize is a “Joy of the Lord” wooden plaque (11″ by 8″) and a “Joy of the Lord” violet pen. A winner from a different country than the ones I mentioned above will receive an ebook of my choice or a voucher. ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you for joining in the celebration!! I hope you’ve had a fun! Don’t forget to grab a copy of Jayne’s Endeavour before the sale ends. And be sure to let me know in the comments what score you got in the quiz!

Oh! And before you go, don’t forget to help yourself to a piece of strawberry sponge cake . . . I’ve heard it’s delicious ๐Ÿ˜›

    And that sponge cake in your post looks SO DELICIOUS!!! Wowza! Is that something you made, or did you just find a picture of it? Because if you made that, I’d surely like the recipe! ๐Ÿ˜€ =)

    1. I know!!! Time certainly seems to fly by! Thank you for being so eager for the next books–it really spurs me on! It’s so fun seeing how many points different people are getting.

      Oh! I know!! Every time I see the picture of the sponge cake, I think how yummy it looks!! But I’m so sorry that I don’t have the recipe–otherwise I would certainly send it to you. ๐Ÿ˜€
