The Sweetest Hallelujah will be in bookstores everywhere next Tuesday (July 30). I’ll be launching with two big parties in my hometown (Tupelo, MS), serving up free barbecue and sweet tea as long as it lasts! We’re working on having a little blues music, too.
Starting August 3rd, I’m traveling thoughout the Deep South to sign at some great bookstores. Along the way, you can catch me on TV and radio interviews. I’ll try to keep you informed through social media, but in case you miss a Tweet or a FB post, do visit my appearances page for dates and times. I’d love to see you!
To celebrate the launch of this book of my heart, I’m giving away three signed copies to three lucky people who drop by this blog during the month of August! Winners will be announced here as well as at Fresh Fiction. Do stop by!
Additionally, I’m running another contest during the month of August that is exclusive to this blog. For a chance to win a Kindle, a Nook or a $100 gift card to the bookstore of your choice, send your name, mailing address and email address along with your book receipt if you have one to Promotions, P. O. Box 605, Mooreville, MS 38857. No purchase is necessary to enter. The winner will be announced only on this blog on Friday, August 30.
My hope is that you will love Billie and Miss Queen, Betty Jewel and Cassie, and a host of other characters from The Sweetest Hallelujah so much that you will feel as if you’ve spent time with good friends. I cried when I finished the book and had to let them go.
Beloved Faithfuls, I hope you can help spread the word about The Sweetest Hallelujah. Tweet it, shout it, share it on FB, tell your neighbors, tell your friends and tell your dog. This little story Kirkus Review calls “a lovely, poetic book” deserves a chance to fly!
Gotta run. So much to do. Hugs all around. Elaine
