Bumpy Landings Book Giveaway!

Back in February I had the privilege of reviewing Bumpy Landings by Don Carey. (Read the review here.) I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and now is the season where I wish I were in Hawaii, cracking open fresh coconuts and eating pineapple.

Not many LDS romance books are written by men or are from a man's perspective, but this one is. Which, makes Bumpy Landings like a non-alcoholic pina colada--quite refreshing. 

Don is generously giving away a copy of Bumpy Landings, and if I didn't already have a copy, I'd be all over this giveaway! (Except, well, I couldn't. That wouldn't be honest since this is my blog. But if I were a pirate, I would.)

Here's how to enter. Please read all the instructions so you will be eligible. You can have a total of five entries!


Follow my blog (or be an existing follower) and leave a comment saying so. 

Additional entries:

Once you are a follower and would like additional entries, any of these count. Please make a separate comment for each entry. For example: if you tweet and blog about the giveaway, make two separate comments, one for the tweet and one for the blog post. If you combine them into one comment, they will count for one entry.

Blog about the giveaway and link to it
Tweet the giveaway
Share the giveaway on Facebook
Go to Don's website, click on "Recipes," and share which one looks the tastiest. (All of these treats are in Bumpy Landings and I want to try every one!)

If your email address isn't in your profile, please include the address in each entry comment so I know how to contact you. 

The contest ends this Saturday, June 11th, at 11:59 Pacific time. I will announce the winner on Monday, June 13.

Good luck to everyone!
