Some of you may wonder what this celebration giveaway post is all about. Well, I started this blog in 2011, inspired by my son and other bloggers out there who had children with autism and developmental disabilities. My message was a simple one: to reach out to others in support, to lessen the stigma attached to the disability, and to begin to inspire hope.
I had no clue what I was doing. I started a blog, then Facebook, then Twitter, and eventually joined Pinterest and Instagram. Finally, I decided I should get on Google Plus as well. As my community grew, I went from Blogger to WordPress, and then decided to move to my domain as my growing followed. Today, I’m celebrating what some other bloggers might see as a small achievement, but I see it as a large one, because 500 people have decided that I’m worth following on Facebook. Thanks to everyone who has supported me!
Chrissy Lessey, author of The Coven, has generously offered a copy of her e-book to one of my faithful readers for nothing in return from me. I just happen to know her family, and they’re wonderful people. I hope she doesn’t mind me sharing that she has a sweet, intelligent daughter and a precocious, well-spoken young man who both go to my son’s school and that he loves them both. Her son happens to have autism, but he’s just as awesome as my son. Their mother also has a winning personality, which is probably how she got this book written that I’m offering to one lucky reader.
The book is about a photographer named Stevie, a single mom raising a five-year-old son named Charlie who has autism while running a business she shares with her best friend. She lives in historic Beaufort, North Carolina near her parents. Her life seems average, but it turns out that it is anything but average when Vanessa Moore returns to Beaufort to get revenge for her mother’s imprisonment and retrieve a magical amulet.
In fact, the Historical Society that her mother belongs to turns out to be a coven of witches with her mother as queen, and Vanessa seeks to destroy every single one of them. Suddenly, Stevie’s magical powers come alive when she’s forced to save her son, Charlie, from Vanessa. Stevie must learn to master her magical talent and protect her son in this break-out book by Chrissy Lessey.
Believe me, it’s a page-turner. It’s not just a story about witch-craft and magical powers, but a message about hope for the future, as Stevie learns more and more about her son. I won’t give away any more about the book. You’ll just have to see for yourself.
I will be using Rafflecopter to determine the winner. The celebration giveaway will end on 8/25/2014 at 12:00AM.
