My kids helped me come up with this list, amidst laughter and some tears (happy I hope). So without further ado, life lessons from the sandy shore.
1) You don't need a surfboard to surf
2) Boogie boards give you carpet burn on your tummy
3) There are bugs in the sand that bite you
4) Electronics aren't so great in the sun
5) Sunburn hurts
6) The ocean floor can disappear from under your feet
7) The beach does amazing things to my hair
8) There are crabs
9) The sand can scorch your feet
10) The water burns your eyes
Awesome, huh? Fun fun. We'll always remember this trip. Me and my four little bacon bits.
But let's talk about #4! Electronics aren't great for the sun.
Normally, if you asked me paperback or ebook, I'd say ebook. Hundreds of books in the palm of my hand, cheaper, my kindle can read to me . . .
All of which was pointless at the beach. I couldn't see my phone and I didn't want to get my kindle wet or sandy. And nothing was more comfortable than holding a paperback. But I only brought one! So I realized, if I'm going to the beach, I need books! Lots of books!
And so do you, whether it's the beach, the lake, or the pool!
So I created a beach pack Goddess of Fate giveaway!
Of course, there are things I want in return. (Big smiley face.) I'm calling this the LAY ME DOWN review push and my prizes will be given out in tiers, depending on how many reviews for LAY ME DOWN I get. I want 100. I'll run this giveaway for the rest of June, and if I get no new reviews, I'll give away a $10 gift card.
But if my book ends up with 50 reviews, I'll give away the gift card to one person and paperback copies of the GODDESS OF FATE series to another person!
It doesn't end there! If we get up to 75 reviews, I'll give away both of the previous give aways AND a third giveaway, the GODDESS OF FATE series and the $10 gift card!
And if we make it to all 100 reviews, I'll give away a beach pack (in addition to the other giveaways) including: the two paperback books, a beach mat, sunscreen, lip balm, aloe, lotion, and a tote bag.*
If you haven't read LAY ME DOWN, you've got three weeks to do it and get your review in! If you've already reviewed it, you get five entries for that and additional entries if you review other books of mine. You also get entries automatically for being one of my readers and/or following me on Facebook!
If you have any questions, please ask in the comments! Then I can address the answer for everyone.
So hop on over to the giveaway and get your entries in! Can't wait to see who wins!
