Gift Card Giveaway for Release of The Mulligan - Share Your Hobby





So what does a picture of Disney have to do with my celebration of my book release? It's where I will be on Feb. 6th the day THE MULLIGAN releases. So all of you who have pre ordered and who will get your download that day, I'll be riding the train or merry-go-round with my two grandchildren and thinking of your generous support of my work.

But since I get to go to Disney, I want to thank you with more than words.

Bobbi, the young woman in my story, has two hobbies--painting and golf. I've recently started my own new hobby--photography. Life needs to be filled with fun times.

So to help you find your hobby or enhance it, I'm giving away a $50.00 GIFT CARD to TWO readers who leave a comment on this post telling me what their favorite hobby is or wish it was.

What GIFT CARDS? I'm giving one to either your choice of DICK'S or SPORTS AUTHORITY or HOBBY LOBBY. (Depending how far out in the boonies you live and want to drive.) My husband and I love all those places. Hope you do too.

And no I'm not making you jump through hoops to have a chance to win this prize. Just share this post if you want on Twitter or your Facebook page. I'll number each entry and my lucky husband will select a winner on Feb. 15th.  That gives you two whole weeks or more to think about what you want to win.

So thank you so much for the years of support you have showed me or are showing me now by purchasing my book. I really appreciate you. Please leave your email address too so I can notify you!

So excited for you, Terri! I just pre-ordered your book! Looking forward to reading it, and I would love to have you over to my blog. My favorite hobby is Civil War reen-acting.

Favorite hobby? Wish I had more of them. I love to read a good book;)! Congrats on the release of your book. Can't wait to get mine.

Linda Reeves said...

Congratulations! I will never be able to express how excited I am for you and for the chance to finally be able to read a novel authored by you. God always has His perfect timing. Landscaping is one of my most favorite passions.

Joanne Sher said...

Hobby? What's that? LOL.

Seriously, I love to read and hang out with the kids and socialize. Are those hobbies?

VERY thrilled about this book - and there is NO BETTER place to spend your book launch than at Disney!

Susan said...

Hi Terri....

I am so happy for you on your upcoming book.

Please put my name into the hat!

And have a fabulous time (I know you will) with the grands! Susan

Judy Pencek said...

I'm so excited. I'm still planning to meet you at Disney. Let's have an ice cream together to celebrate. And my favorite hobbies are reading, writing and sewing.

Terri, I add my congratulations--and am off to order your book. I'm not on facebook or twitter (though you've almost convinced me to get going on that!) but I will post about this on my blog :-) Enjoy your trip to Disneyland with the grandkids--that's right up there with getting a book published!

Karen Lange said...

Congratulations Terri! I am so excited for you! Enjoy your time with the grandkids and the rest of the gang.

As far as hobbies go, I like to sew and do crafty stuff, but haven't had much time for that lately as I have had to choose between that and writing. :) I also wouldn't mind getting out and playing golf with my husband. But I am thinking I have much to learn about that game. So perhaps your book is timed just right in that respect!

Thanks for offering the giveaway. Congrats again! :)

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Congrats, Terri!

I like crocheting, poking around antique shops, couponing, and gardening. Now, if I could add a few hours to the day, I might be able to spend some time on them. LOL!

Lynn said...

Just leaving a comment but not entering as in Canada we don't even have those places! Have a wonderful time in Disney! I also do photography and when I get on a role, I like card making. My hobbies tend to be all or nothing for chunks of time!

Jeanette Levellie said...

I just want to cry for joy for you, sweet Terri. You have waited so long for this day, and God gave you the desires of your heart. Disney with grand kids is the perfect place to celebrate!

My hobbies are eating out, playing board games with anyone who will let me win, and gardening.

Thanks for this splendid contest!

Jeanette Levellie said...

I shared on my FB page, which links to my twitter feed, then I shared on Google+.

Lynda R Young said...

No need to include me in the giveaway, but I shared on Twitter. Hope it helps for your very exciting day of Disney and launch!!

Happy release to you! So exciting, and Disney is a great place to celebrate. :) I'm not sure we have a Dick's or Sports Authority or Hobby Lobby here in the NW. Hmm! But I wanted to comment and say CONGRATS. My "hobby" is writing! Or wait, maybe that's my JOB and my hobby is drawing/painting, lol.

Joyce Ackley said...

Terri, I am reading The Mulligan, and I love it! I can hardly put it down and stayed up until after midnight reading it. I'm really enjoying it.
I am not into sports as hobbies. I don't guess I have a hobby, really. I enjoy reading, and I'd garden more if I were physically able. Thanks for the opportunity to win the gift card.

Congratulations on the new book release!! That's so awesome. I love to crochet. It's so relaxing. But what I want to learn to do is paint. My husband and I bought some canvases a few months ago. Then, on Saturday, we bought a paint set. I've painted backdrops for youth theater, but this will be my first attempt at painting scenery on a smaller canvas. :)

Carol Garvin said...

Really looking forward to the release, Terri!

My DH and I have only golfed once, and it didn't agree with his back so was never in the running to be a hobby for us. These days my hobbies include oil painting, gardening, and photography. The latter is my favourite -- have played with cameras since 1960!

(Don't enter me for the draw -- there aren't any of those places near me). :)

Angela said...

Congratulations!!! There are a ton of things that I love to do, but just don't have time for them anymore. I enjoy reading, crocheting, knitting, growing plants, and cooking, just to name a few. :)

I wish you the best!

Robin said...

I am so happy for you, blessings as your book gets published. We have all enjoyed your sharing with all of us your journey ...

Painting, pottery, crocheting and knitting ...

Enjoy your time in disney
