Short and sweet. That’s how I do things around here.
Sigh, okay, not really. I want things to be short and sweet, as in simple and easy, but it seems like a near-impossible task at times. Things somehow end up complicated and busy. I need to take a page from Deidre’s book, I think.
Here’s one of my favorite recipes. The flavors are fresh and the colors remind me of spring. Enter the oh-so-gorgeous (and delicious) Green Tea Tart with Lychees and Raspberries. Chef Stephane Lemagnen from zencancook.com shared it with me and the recipe made an appearance in Table Manners. If you ever decide to give it a try (just click on the image to get the recipe), snap a picture and share it with me on Facebook. I’d love to see it!
Today is the kick off for the Authors in Bloom Spring Blog Hop Giveaway. Seem like a mouthful? It is, but for good reason. Over 50 authors are participating in a mega giveaway for the next 10 days, which means you have 10 days to enter over 50 individual author contests and, if you do, qualify for the grand prize or a Kindle Fire or Nook, winner’s choice.
To qualify for the grand prize, you must visit each and every author on the hop. Grand prize entrants will be entered via Rafflecopter, available on the first and final landing page of this hop, located on BloominThyme. All winning entries will be verified. Visit the website for more details.
The Authors in Bloom Blog Hop runs from Thursday, April 7, 2016 to Saturday, April 16, 2016.
What will be given away? Everything from books to swag, promotional products and more. The grand prize is an e-reader of your choice (up to $200 value). A second prize of $25 gift card for an e-book retailer gift card. Visit BloominThyme for complete details and entry restrictions.
I’m giving away a $25 gift card to Amazon (U.S. and Canada residents only). I know — it’s so creative, right? 🙂 But I know you’ll get something awesome with it! The winner will also have their choice of one of my novels (Good Things, Sweet Life, Table Manners or Family Room) in print, ebook or audiobook.
What do I do when it’s all over? On April 18th, the grand prize winners will be posted on BloominThyme. Individual authors will announce and contact the winners of their author-specific giveaways on their own websites. You will be required to claim your prize according to each giveaway’s terms and conditions. IMPORTANT: I will be on the road and traveling off the beaten path during this giveaway so the winner of my giveaway will be notified and receive their prize during the week of May 1, 2016, when I return. Grab a good book and then another, and keep reading until I get back!
To enter my giveaway, just leave a comment below telling me who you are, where you’re from and how you love to spend your free time. Now THAT’s easy.
Thanks so much for swinging by and have fun these next 10 days!
Big hugs to everyone who took the time to leave a comment and hop around! The winner of the giveaway is Amy Bowens. Congrats, Amy!
