It's ONE MONTH till Peaches release and this Giveaway is HUGE!

I can't believe GEORGIA PEACHES AND OTHER FORBIDDEN FRUIT is releasing one month from today. This book was written during the most difficult time of my life. And now as it's releasing, my life is entering a period of change, excitement, and hope.

In the interest of promotion (yeah, yeah, the author's bane), the love of gifting, and just general fun, may I present you with this giveaway. The Elephant Sanctuary in TN plays a bit part in the novel, but I absolutely loved this shirt. It relates to my author's note in the back of the book, and also life in general. When you find your herd, your people, you are happy. (This T is available S-3X in unisex sizing)

In an early scene, Joanna (Jo) Gordon, gets a makeover. Urban Decay Naked Palette plays a role in that transition. This awesome smokey palette looked fun.

Hellcat Coffee Shop is a fictional spot, but it's one of Jo and Dana's (her best friend) favorites. I had a handful of T-shirts made just because I wanted to. I have one S, one M, one L left. You get to choose. They are unisex sizes.

And finally, a swag pack of stickers and bookmarks AND an annotated ARC with all sorts of inside the author's mind (that's me) trivia marked in the margins.

US only. There are lots of ways to win explained in the entry form below.
For a free entry without doing any of the stuff, mail a postcard to me, c/o PO Box 133, Micaville NC 28755, by 8/19.

Tomorrow's my birthday. (June 16th)

So I'm giving away 3 Hellcat Coffee T-shirts. Hellcat Coffee is a fictional coffee shop on Moreland Avenue frequented by Joanna's best friend, Dana. It's a pretty happening spot.

So I'm giving away one small, one medium, and one large T-shirt for my birthday.

All you have to do is guess my dream b'day gift. Either here or on Twitter. Hashtag on twitter is #guessforaT. I'll pick the first correct answer in each size so be sure and tell me which size you'd prefer.  And hey, sticker swag for all who guess! You'll have to send me a mailing address to my email listed on the right side of this blog.

And hint: There are many people I know who would want this gift.

Good luck! I'll announce tomorrow at 8 am.
And eat cake!!
