You Just Can't Miss This Giveaway....

Hello Everyone,

Just this week I had the pleasure of sitting down with my friend, Marie Bostwick. For those of you who don't know who she is, she is a NY Times Bestselling author of some wonderful books, including the series pictured below.


If you love a good read about friendship, common bonds, quilting, and just plain fun, you will love these books. Any way, I interviewed her for my newest podcast Episode #13. You can listen to our chat by clicking here or by going to iTunes and searching for Jackie's Quilting Chronicles and subscribing. It is FREE! (While you are there, check out my other 12 quilting podcasts!)


Anyway, Marie and I had a wonderful morning together and I think that you will agree she is just a lovely individual with a talent for telling a great story and also a talent for quilting.

So if you have not read any of her books, you may want to check them out on Amazon or your local bookstore. But for one lucky individual, Marie has generously donated an autographed copy of her newest book... A Thread So Thin! It was just released at the end of April and I have finished it already. A terrific read!!


So here is what you need to do to be entered into the giveaway:

1. Leave a comment here and let me know if Marie's books are new to you or not. (1st entry)
2. Go check out Marie's Site by clicking here and register online and download your free quilting pattern. Then come back and tell me in a separate comment. (2nd entry)
3. Let me know if you are a follower of my blog, if not, become one and let me know, either way in a third comment. (3rd entry)

You don't have to do all three, but you have the opportunity to enter 3 times.

Remember there must be a way for me to contact you. Make sure that you e-mail is accessible.


The giveaway will remain open until May 23! On the 24th, I will draw the winner. In the meantime, check out the podcast and get to know Marie a little better.

The Giveaway is now closed. Check back tomorrow for the winner!

Oh, and my monthly newsletter for May is now available online here.

Until Next Time...

She is new to me; I enjoy reading and do it in fits and starts simply because once I sit down to read NOTHING else gets done! Hubby protests sometimes especially when he gets hungry or has nothing to wear..:(

quiltmom said...

HI Jackie,
I have not heard of Marie's books but I will be on the look out for them now. I love reading quilting stories and there are a number of wonderful authors that incorporate quilting into their stories. I have the new Jennifer Chiaverini book out right now from the public library. I also have read the Bennie Harper stories by Earlene Fowler. If you have not read them - they are worth the time.
I will stop at Marie's website and I am already a follower. I am looking forward to finding out more about Marie and her books.
Regards,
Anna

Brenda said...

I find it hard to believe that I'm not familiar with Marie and her books. I have a lot of health problems that keep me flat in bed much of the time and I wouldn't survive without books and the library. I'll go check out 25-30 books at a time and get the question "are you really going to read all those? quite often.

So I've added her to my must look up list, even if I don't win (sob, sob).

Colleen said...

Hi Jackie
I heard Marie being interviewed by Annie Smith, and went right out and bought "A Single Thread". I loved it. I've looked a couple times for A Thread of Truth, but my local bookstore didn't have it. I'd love to win a book, but even if I don't, I'll keep looking to buy the other two.
