Contest! Wounded Warrior's Project! My Birthday!

Hi Everyone,

As you can tell by the subject line, we're covering a bunch of things today.  I have invited my friend, Stacey Joy Netzel, to my blog today, so be sure to read everything she has to say.

Romancing Wisconsin June Promo:
For the past two years, I’ve donated the royalties from one of my books for the entire month of December to a charity. In 2013, I’m switching it up and splitting it up to benefit more than one charity in a couple different months.

This June I’m donating 25% of my net royalties for the Romancing Wisconsin Volume I Holiday Boxed Set. It includes Mistletoe Mischief, Mistletoe Magic, Mistletoe Match-Up, and the exclusive bonus story, Mistletoe Rules.

Holiday stories in June, you ask? (and even if you didn’t, pretend you did) Well you see, the first story is actually Christmas in July at the zoo, so I’m just a month early on that one. Plus, these heartwarming stories will make you want to celebrate Christmas any time of the year—and Santa Butch is a treat you don’t want to miss. Best part of all, your purchase (or gift to someone else) not only gets you the boxed set, but you’re helping out a great organization that helps the men and women injured in the line of duty to their country.

In December 2012, I donated to a local no-kill animal shelter because my heroine in Mistletoe Magic runs an animal rescue. Reader generosity allowed me to write Happily Ever After Animal Sanctuary a check for a little over $6000. But then I felt a bad because Janelle’s hero Mark is an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan, and he deserves to be spotlighted, too.

So for this round I’ll be donating my royalties for RWVI to the Wounded Warrior’s Project to help US veterans injured in the line of duty.
For the first six days of June, I’ll have the Romancing Wisconsin Volume I Holiday Boxed Set on sale for $0.99. Yes, you read that right, less than a dollar! Regular price is $4.99, so it’s a great deal, plus you get the exclusive bonus story.

If you’re reading this after June 6th, the price will be back to $4.99, but remember, my donation will keep adding up through the entire month of June, so please still consider picking up a copy. US veterans and I will thank you!
Get yours today—or gift a copy to someone: Amazon US UK CA, BN, Kobo, Apple

Then keep track of the number of copies sold on my blog! I’ll keep a running total on the sidebar and do an update at the end of the month. You can check out excerpts there, too.
Going on the honor system, leave a comment letting me know you bought or gifted a copy of the Romancing Wisconsin Boxed Set, and I'll enter your name to win an ebook copy of my award-winning romantic suspense, *Lost In Italy*. (If you buy a copy AND gift to a friend/s, you can have an entry for each copy of the RW Boxed Set. Just let me know how many.)

Again, thank you very much for your generosity! Feel free to share this with friends on any of your social networks.

Okay, now, I'm going to add my two cents worth.  My birthday is tomorrow, and since I like getting presents I decided to give some.  One lucky person who buys Stacey's volume will win digital copies of all three of my Odyssey Mysteries, The Catalyst, Addiction and The Deceived.  Another person will win a copy of A Fool's Fool. 

Remember this is a worthy cause.

Thank you see you next weekend.

This is a wonderful organization. I donated over $50 last year to them based on a blog hop comments. The organization helps the vets who return home who face challenges not only physically but emotionally and mentally. I really recommend that people consider donating to the organization as well as buying the book!

Thanks so much, Melissa! It's great when we can help others out and WWP is a great organization.

Sandy, thank you for hosting me! I am at a conference this weekend, so I'll stop in to comment when I can.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Hi, Stacey Joy!

I have a few of your Mistletoe Stories, but not all, so I just bought your boxed set!! You know I'm all for helping the Veterans! Thank you for giving to them.

And, I already have your wonderful story, Lost In Italy, so please don't add my name to the contest. Let someone else have a chance to read the goodie!!

Thank you for being here Stacey. I think what you're doing is wonderful. For those of you who haven't read any of Stacey's books; she's an author to get to know. I have read some of her books, and I just loved them.

Stacey Joy Netzel said...

Thanks so much, Donna! You're a sweetheart, just like Sandy. :)

Thanks to all those who stopped by this past week! The boxed set has already earned enough for me to make at least a $500 donation to the Wounded Warriors! I'm thrilled!!

So, for the winners here...Melissa Keir has won the ebook copy of LOST IN ITALY!

And Donna Michaels has won Sandy's prize of her 3 Odyssey Mysteries.

Thank you so very much, Ladies!
