A FREE Kindle Fire, You Say???

Hello lovely readers!! 


I have joined a group of lovely women, ten beautiful authors, who I think you will adore just as much as I do! We are The Romance Troupe!

To commemorate the joining of forces, our creative minds, and to share in the joy of spring being just around the corner, we are giving away a FREE Kindle Fire (or a $200 Gift Card to Amazon or Barnes & Nobel if you already have a Kindle Fire.)

I for one am ready for Spring! Yes, I am looking forward to longer, warmer days, green grass, spring showers, and bunnies in the yard. But what I'm looking forward to the most is breaking ground for the new kitchen and dinning room addition! I'm willing to put up with gaping holes, saw dust, dry wall dust, lumber, drills, hammers, saws, etc. My current kitchen is so tiny - I mean, really, I've seen bigger bathroom stalls at the mall than my kitchen! lol

What are you looking forward to this spring or summer? 

PS: Don't forget to leave your email address so that we can contact you if you win! I promise no spamming. ;o)

PS: I'll also be giving away a FREE paperback copy of Wee William's Woman! This is apart from the Kindle Fire. ;o) 
I have had so much fun with this contest! I hope you have too! Contest ends tomorrow night. we should have winners announced on the 23rd or 24th.  :-) 
Hugs,
Suzan
______________

This is a group of very nice ladies who write in a wide variety of romance genres, from contemporary to historical fiction, like me. ;o) I feel very honored to be a part of this fantastic group of gentlewomen. ;o)

  3. Spring brings beauty and, yes, chaos. I'm looking forward to have 2 acres cleared. We're fencing the yard to keep our crazy cattle dogs from roaming around the area like fools. Also, two new releases and, of course, this BLOG HOP. Am so looking forward to diving into Wee William. Hope Springs brings you new delights, especially that kitchen! P.S. Look the other way during construction.

    1. I wish we had more acres. ;o) We have a huge 1/2 acre lot, but I know my husband wishes it was ten. We often talk about buying some wooded acreage then we think, "Snakes. Spiders. And our favorite Chinese restaurant won't deliver to the country!" lol

      Looking forward to your books! ;o)

      This will be the first remodel where I am home during it. lol We've been through it before, but I have a feeling it will be different as I won't have a job to escape to. I mean, a job outside of the house! lol

  5. I too am looking forward to the longer days and warmer days of first Spring and then Summer. Congratulations on the new addition to the house and good luck with it. I would love to have an additional room added to our house -a laundry room that is on the main floor - I hate having to go to the basement to do laundry...lol
