I can't believe I have a 20 year old ....
HAPPY MOTHER's DAY!  Some of my Author Friends (many are moms) have decided to give away their e-books or paperbacks for Mother's Day -- See Below for Giveaways!

a MOM is a wonderful thing. I have so enjoyed watching Ashley grow into a beautiful, strong, smart young woman. She has finished her first year of college, has a good head on her shoulders and I am starting to see that Independent side of her (that is sooooooo me - it's scary!) I know she will be an AWESOME teacher after she graduates and someday ... she will also make a fantastic MOM! But right now I'm still enjoying watching her grow up, sometimes make mistakes, and cry when we talk about her moving away someday!

Ashley at about 20 months & Ashley at 20 years! 
“Now let’s get on with the giveaway!

A few of my author friends and myself have banned together in a book giveaway-some of us will be giving away eBooks, some of us will be giving away Paperbacks, and some both! I have listed the author’s below, including my own links. Visit both the Amazon page, and author blog. On Amazon you will find the free eBooks available, but on the blogs you will see if they are giving away a paperback (like I am)! I’ve also listed some of my favorite author’s Amazon book pages.
