Now, here are the particulars of MY GIVEAWAY and RULES:

Grand Prize
I like to keep it simple folks. For a chance to win the Grand Prize, the First Prize and the Second Prize just become a follower if you're not already and and leave a comment with your e-mail or some way to contact you. That's it! What could be simpler? Let's go over the lovely prizes:

The Grand Prize consists of two books, the thriller novel, Alex Cross's Trial by James Patterson and Richard Dilallo as well as Grace Under Pressure-A Manor House Mystery by Julie Hyzy. The Grand Prize package also includes a charm bracelet made up of pocketbooks. I know someone who preferred a necklace and took the bracelet apart to use the charms for that purpose. You're only limited by your creative vision.

First Prize
The First Prize consists of the novel Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner, the British author who is one of the "Founding Mothers" of Chick Lit. This is her debut novel and I picked it up in a bookstore when I visited London this summer. It's brand new and unread-I haven't had time, so I may as well let someone enjoy it. Accompanying this First Prize is a pair of jade tone earrings with a gold tone setting. The picture doesn't do them justice and they're quite pretty.

Second Prize
The Second and final prize consists of the historical Romance, The Beloved Scoundrel by Iris Johansen. This is new and unread as well. Just not enough time in the day, but my loss is your gain.  

Winners will be chosen randomly, so when you enter, there is no guarantee which prize you will win.  The winners will be announced during the week of Sept 13. Giveaway open only to residents of the US and Canada. Sorry folks, but the shipping can be quite expensive. Thanks for coming by and don't forget to stop by
Reader Girls @ http://readergirls.blogspot.com when you leave here to check out what's being offered!

Thanks guys and don't be strangers. I hope you stop by again. I try to keep it interesting around here.

 Toodles!
