Would you like a sneak peek at The Accidental Bride? I have 3 advanced copies to give away--the book doesn't release until January.

Advanced copies are expensive for publishers to print, so I'd like to get as much bang for their buck as possible.

Here's how you can enter: 

1. Leave a message telling me what you'll do to promote the book (post reviews on Amazon, CBD, blog, etc) Be creative!

2. Leave your email address.

3. I'll choose 3 entries as winners and contact them Tuesday, Sept 13.

Here's a blurb of The Accidental Bride:

Two high-school sweethearts, a wedding reenactment, and one absent-minded preacher. Is it a recipe for disaster or a chance for a new beginning? 

         Shay Brandenberger is a survivor. She's lived through a crazy childhood, a failed marriage, and single parenthood-with her confidence intact.

         But not for long. Because when Shay participates in her town's Founders Day wedding reenactment, she finds herself face-to-face with the one man who leaves her weak in the knees: Travis McCoy.

         Travis is back in town after years way on the rodeo circuit. His one regret in life is breaking Shay's heart when they were high-school sweethearts. He's determined to get it right this time.

         So when their Founder's Day "marriage" is accidentally made official, Travis seizes the day. Can Shay put aside her pride to let Travis help her, or will their accidental marriage be over before he can say annulment?

Hi Denise,

Jess from here.

I will promote your book via twitter, Facebook, our blog, I'll also put a review on Koorong's website (Koorong is the major christian book distributor in Australia), Amazon and fishpond.

Finally, in the past few months it has become known to my friends that I have an extensive collection of Christian fiction books. I am lending books out left right and center.

I will print out a copy of the book including the blurb, attached with a short review by me and put it in every book that I lend out.

The person borrowing the book can find out where to purchase it and they can also give the leaflet away to others interested in buying your book.


Great comp!

Hello! I have actually started a book club among teenagers and I suggested to them reading Surrender Bay. Ever since then they have loved your books Denise. They are currently reading A Cowboy's Touch so if I can get an advanced copy for The Accidental Bride I'm sure I will be able to spread the word to get more people interested in its release in January. I also can spread the word with the use of twitter, Facebook, my blog, and YouTube. I have my own channel where i review books and i give them ratings on overall content and in certain categories like character development and things of the like. And finally, i lend out some of my books to my friends and/or past teachers who love to read. Whenever i lend them a book i usually stick a little note referring to more books in either the front middle or back of the book along with a quote and some words of encouragement. Your books usually help me through hard times so i thought that i would pass it onto others as well.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and you have a nice day. :)

If I would be so lucky as to win an advance readers copy of your upcoming novel, I post a review on my blog and share it on twitter. I also happen to work at The Barton Rees Memorial Library in Upland, IN, so I would recommend your novels to some of our readers who I know would LOVE your books. Sometimes we have book signings at the library, we have two this month, maybe you could even have your own book signing sometime, if you want. :)
I love your previous books and the inspiring stories you tell.

I just reviewed Smitten for you and also gave it away on my blog to someone to review on their blog. (So, two for the price of one!)
I also put my reviews on Twitter and tell people about them at church where I am the church librarian.

Hi there! Well I am not a "professional blogger" at all; but I am an avid reader and fan. When I say avid I mean about 2-3 fiction books per week.

I would post a fantastic review (as long as you have written on par with your other wonderful books) on all of the usual social media outlets: facebook, twitter, amazon; and I'd find a few others.

I pass my books around to lots of friends as they all know how much I read. No t.v. for me really; I'd rather be reading.

I think the most important thing I can do is choose "The Accidental Bride" as our book club book (once it comes out.) What I enjoy most about your books is the subtle blend of christian principles in with everyday whimsical romance. Not too much in your face to turn off someone who may not be a Jesus-follower but enough to stir their souls. make sense?

Plus Denise, you are such a fabulous and talented writer. I have read lots of not so great Christian female authors and some pretty poorly edited Christian women's fiction. Your books have NEVER fallen into that category; and I have come to expect nothing but the best from the world that you create in our minds.

Thanks!!! I think that is it.
