***GIVEAWAY*** Freebie Friday! (Special Edition)

It's a special week on The Writer's Alley as one of our founding cats celebrates the release of her first contemporary romance novel! One of our goals here at the alley is to not only share craft tips, provide inspiration or encouragement, and cultivate sense of community for your writing journey, but it's also an endeavor support each other in our own writing endeavors. There are a LOT of ups and downs in the world of publishing. Whether you're pre-published, self-published, or traditionally published, each phase comes with it's own trials, triumphs, and disappointments.

But it's relatively simple to make a writer's day, isn't it? Any combination of these suggestions are things you CAN do to make a difference for someone with their heart on paper. Encouraging things like... 1. Read their book. 2. Review it. 3. Talk about it. In person. On social media. TO the author. (Gasp! Isn't that like, taboo, or something? No, in fact, it's awesome to hear from someone who read your book. Guaranteed to make an author's day!) 4. Host a giveaway or buy a book for a friend.

So today, I want to celebrate and champion a person I believe in and appreciate more than words can impress upon you...

Congrats on another remarkably beautiful book, Pepper Basham! So proud of you!

GIVEAWAY RULES: Share this meme or post on Facebook, and drop your name below so I know you want to enter to win. I'm giving away up to 3 e-copies of one of my favorite books A Twist of Faith! But I need some participation. :) Help spread the word on this great new release and you're entered to win a free read for the weekend on me!

*~GIVEAWAY!!!!!!~*
Love does not have an accent ... 

Dr. Adelina Roseland has worked ten years in research as an accent reduction specialist to attain her dream job. But a secret wager to transform Appalachian cattle farmer Reese Mitchell into corporate material challenges Adelina in ways she never expected, threatening her new position. 

For one, Adelina didn't plan for the faith and friction of Reese, or the unexpected influence of his chaotic family. Now, drawn into a culture she'd tried to forget, Adelina finds the warmth of family, the hope of faith, and the joy of love melting away the deep wounds of her past. 

But when Reese discovers that he's a pawn in her climb up the academic ladder, will he forgive Adelina's deceit or will their miscommunication end in two broken lives? 

"Basham weaves a unique tale sure to please the romantic at heart." Denise Hunter bestselling author of Married til Monday

Happy READING <3 Amy
