Karen Ingalls (@kareningalls1) recently celebrated a blog anniversary at Outshine Ovarian Cancer. I have been following along with Karen and her story for quite some time and have read her book Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir. Outshine is an inspiring book that not only chronicles her battle with ovarian cancer but shows a deep faith and spirit.
Karen had a giveaway to celebrate the anniversary of her blog. I was a lucky winner of this beautiful plaque that now graces a shelf in my office alongside a photo of myself in my early days of illness and a beautiful glass that belonged to my paternal grandfather (one of the few possessions of his that I am able to have in my home). The plaque reads: I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength…Phil 4:13 . Thank you Karen for such a lovely gift.
Since writing Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir, Karen has had a recurrence of cancer and gone through yet another round of treatment. Karen is a brave lady and I am happy to call her a friend despite never meeting in person.

Black Lilac Kitty Book Promotion is launching an online summer book fair and giveaway. While my book isn’t in print yet, it will be featured in the book fair. They hosted a Winter Online Book Fair and I found some amazing new authors whose books I have begun reading or have added to my “wish list”. The book fair starts today! Please check all the amazing authors and books that are listed. To enter giveaways, you need to download the catalog and look through it. Somewhere inside the catalog are instructions to enter to win giveaway prizes.
A side note: I should have a proof of my book by next week.
Hi everyone! I thought by now I would be giving away a copy of my book. Things are going much slower than I had anticipated. The photos are being worked on as I type this blog and should be ready for me to submit very soon.
To thank all my loyal followers, I am offering a chance to win a free apron that I have made. The apron is made from all cotton and the fabric washed in 7th Generation Laundry Soap with baking soda. The fabric was purchased online and didn’t come from a fragrant fabric store. I will only be able to send the apron in the US. I will check into ideas for mailing out of the US soon. The giveaway starts tomorrow, July 9, 2013 and ends July 16, 2013. This is my first time using Rafflecopter. I hope it works well.
