The sweet ladies over at Mormon Mommy Writers are having a 3rd Anniversary. Congratulations! And to celebrate, they're offering a book giveaway. What else would writers do? Click over to here and read the rules and enter. I did.
 You may win a copy of Jennie James' "Pride and Popularity." 
"Pride and Popularity" by Jenni James
Taylor always gets what he wants—until now.
Chloe Elizabeth Hart despises the conceited antics of the popular crowd, or more importantly, one very annoying self-possessed guy, Taylor Anderson, who seems deter
mined to make her the president of his fan club! As if! Every girl in the whole city of Farmington, New Mexico, is in love with him, but he seems to be only interested in Chloe.
This modern high school adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is a battle of wits
as Chloe desperately tries to remain the only girl who can avoid the inevitable—falling for Taylor.

Or you might win . . .
"Ammon" by H.B. Moore.

Review in Deseret News by Sheryl C.S. Johnson
Heather B. Moore’s "Ammon" is a delightful combination of vibrant characters and epic drama. Moore seamlessly clothes historical giants like Ammon and King Lamoni in flesh and blood, making the story leap from the page and captivate readers.
Carrying nothing but hunting weapons and the promises of God, Ammon secures a position as King Lamoni’s servant in the land of Ishmael. Miracles come to life as Ammon faces the challenges of being a Nephite prince in a Lamanite land. Moore provides insights into the spiritual and physical realities of Ammon’s plight and mission, emphasizing the magnitude of his sacrifice and service.
Elena’s fair-skinned family of Nephite heritage struggles when Ammon’s message threatens the foundations of Lamanite culture. Torn between her growing affection for Ammon and her father’s insistence she marry a wealthy Lamanite, Elena weighs the expectations of her people against the promptings of her heart.
Moore’s genius with character development paints a Lamanite people rich in traditions and passionate in beliefs. She depicts the brutality of the time period without garish scenes of violence. This fictional retelling of factual accounts is enthralling, intense and unforgettable. The page-turning, adventurous pace of the book doesn’t ebb but is balanced by moments of reflection and compelling plot.

Or you might be lucky enough to win "Totally Cliched," an e-book published by MMW's (they're working on a printed version even as we read) with my short story, "Scared Stiff," tucked away between the e-pages, along with many other wonderful stories by different authors.

 And while you're there, why not read over some of their past posts? Their wit and wisdom will make you laugh . . . and cry.
