Dragonfly Moments Birthday Blog Tour and Sale
It has begun.
Today, is the first stop for the blog tour for Dragonfly Moments first birthday. And my book is on sale!!
There are some great prizes. Well, there are going to be if you help me decide on the smaller prizes.
There's going to be a grand prize of $15 Amazon Gift Card. I have to confess that an awesome, super, sweet, funny and bubbly writer friend called Nana Prah donated this prize for my blog tour. She's a fellow Ubuntu writer at Decadent Publishing and her Ubuntu book came out not long ago. It's called Midwife to Destiny and is an lovely medical romance set in Africa. You have to read this sweet, touching romance. You can get it here: Amazon and it's also on sale at the moment for $0.99.
Now, I'm not too sure what to give for a small dragonfly prize in the 5 dragonfly swag bags.
I used to be into beading. Like crazy. I used to make necklaces, bracelets, all sorts. Then suddenly, the craze died out. Don't know why. It just kind of lost its charm. Maybe because I couldn't sell them, the friends I gave them to never wore them, and well, you can only have so many of your own. But, I'm happy to take out my beads and revive the craft for my readers. So, I'd like to make a dragonfly necklace for prizes. Something like this: Bead Necklace Idea 1 or like this: Bead Necklace Idea 2. It wouldn't be exactly the same - depends on what beads I can find.
I've always enjoyed knitting. There's something about doing simple stitches and watching them form this amazing shape in the end. Somehow, that sense of endurance, having to work towards the end goal makes the triumph all the more sweeter. (Much like writing a book.) It's also easy enough to do in front of the TV. So, I'm very happy to make these little wall hangings: Knitted Dragonfly Wall Hanging or this really cute dragonfly toy.
So, there will be a vote. Put your vote in the comments below. Choose necklace, wall hanging or toy. Also, to take part in the rafflecopter giveaway which will be live from 12h00 a.m. US time, you can comment below and say what special memory you have shared with a loved one.
"Dragonfly Moments" are those fleeting moments you share with someone special which you never forget. They're those moments that tug your heart whenever you remember them. Ryan knew that Tessa needed more Dragonfly Moments, not just a guarantee of forever. Don't we all? What's the point of forever if it's not that great?
“Will you tell me what the dragonflies mean?”
He swallowed a mouthful of food and put his plate on the picnic mat. Leaning forward, his eyes sparkling, he spoke.
“I want to give you memories. Dragonfly moments. We have these moments in life that we never forget. They’re short, but they impact us forever. I wanted to give you one of those moments.”
