It’s HERE! Announcing the Chasing Hope Giveaway

Last week, I promised you some very fun news about a giveaway in celebration of Chasing Hope, and I’m happy to tell you it went live today!

Here’s a list of the prizes you could win:

Chasing Hope Grand PrizeGRAND PRIZE:


Nike’s motto is: Just Do It, and Sabrina Rice of Chasing Hope lives out this attitude despite tremendous obstacles. But chasing dreams is hard work, and every champion needs fuel for their journey.

To celebrate everyday champions like Sabrina, we’re offering our Grand Prize winner the chance to fuel up, and have some fun as they chase their dreams.

The winner of this package will receive a $200 shopping spree to the Nike Online Store, and a 1-Year subscription to Runner’s World Magazine.


Chasing Hope Second PrizeSECOND PRIZE:


In Chasing Hope, Brandy Philip has world-class talent, but she needs a fresh start, and a little extra help to get her on the right path. Just like Brandy, we all need a boost now and then, especially when it comes to our health and fitness goals!

While we can’t all have a personal trainer like Sabrina to help us meet those goals, our Second Prize winner will receive the next best thing: This prize includes a $175 value Nike + FuelBand accelerometer, which tracks each step taken and calories burned (and tells the time of day), and The Courage To Start running book, written by popular life coach and former self-proclaimed “couch potato”, John Bingham.



Chasing Hope Third PrizeTHIRD PRIZE:


In Chasing Hope, Sabrina and Brandy find that even the strongest runners also need time to rest.

Whether you run marathons, a carpool, or just weekly trips to the grocery store, you can always use a little you-time, and a chance to recharge!

Our third prize winner will get that chance with a $50 gift card to Spafinder.com, plus an inside look at the life of Eric Liddell, (Sabrina’s hero and inspiration), through the ‘Complete Surrender’ biography book, and the Chariots of Fire DVD, featuring Ben Cross.


Aren’t these packages fabulous?  So, what are you waiting for?  Go forth and win prizes my friends 🙂

This one’s a keeper!” You can read the entire review here. With only a month to go until official release, things are starting to get exciting!

Looking for influencers for "Chasing Hope"

My publisher has opened up a few new “influencer” spots for my upcoming novel, Chasing Hope. What is an influencer, you ask? Well, it’s someone the publisher direct mails a free copy of the book right around release time. This person agrees to read the book and help spread the word about it. Normally these spots are reserved almost exclusively for bloggers, etc., but since I have a few extra slots, I’d really like to get the books in the hands of my true readers.
So… if you like my books, and you like to tell other people about my books through Facebook, twitter, book clubs, or talking it up among your reader friends, this opportunity is just for you! (If you are simply looking for a free copy, please ignore this post and check back next month when we will be having more giveaways).
If you are interested in “influencing”, send me an email with your snail mail address by clicking here.

Happy reading!

PS- If the response exceeds available books, I will have a random drawing. Include a list of unique ways you can “influence” and I’ll enter you in the drawing twice!
