A Mother in the Making Book Giveaway!!

Gabrielle Here:

Last Thursday, I had a huge surprise waiting for me on my front steps. My first Love Inspired Historical book, A Mother in the Making, arrived! I had no idea it was coming so soon. I'm part of a Yahoo group of Love Inspired authors, and several of the August releases hadn't arrived yet, so I didn't expect the September releases for quite some time.


*Insert wild cheering, a few tears, and lots of giddiness.*

My six-year-old twin boys didn't know what was happening as I happy-danced around our foyer with a box in my hands. They watched me with mild interest.

I opened the box, pulled out my book baby, and cheered some more.


My boys still didn't understand.

So I told them that this was my first solo book. I pointed at my name and even opened to the dedication where I showed them their names.


Let's just say my boys weren't impressed. :) I started writing when they were two, so they've never known any different. To them, my writing is my job. No big deal.

They were happy to see their names, but they quickly disappeared outdoors to play in the yard.

To me, my writing is my dream-come-true. Something I've longed to do since I was about eleven-years-old. And that dedication? It means everything to me.

To celebrate the arrival of A Mother in the Making, I'm offering a free copy to one commenter. Enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win. (U.S. citizens only, please.)

I'd love to know: When was the last time you squealed in delight. :)

    1. Oh! That sounds like a wonderful moment, Gail. My mom was in the room for my first two children, but my twins were taken by cesarean, so she couldn't be there...but she was waiting close by to see them as soon as she could. Thank you for being here.
