Giveaway Winners and more

Thanks to everyone who participated in my interview with author Deborah Lynne. And a big thanks to Deborah for allowing me to interview her and for her generosity in giving away two of her fantastic books! As a reminder, you can find Deborah on facebook and her website:
The winners of the two free autographed books are….drum roll…. Mari Moore and Courtney Rene!! Woo hoo! Ladies, if you haven’t heard from me, please send me your mailing addresses and which book you’d like so I can forward on to Deborah. We both hope you enjoy them!
Now on to news about, who else, ME!! This month I have a story coming out in Stories for Children Magazine titled One Measly Pillow. The issue is not posted as of this writing but I will post a link when it is. Unfortunately, I believe you have to pay for a months subscription to view the story though.
However, you don’t have to pay a thing to read an interview I did with the wonderful staff at Here is the link to my interview. This site is also a good place to learn about other great books you might be interested in purchasing.
Tomorrow I head to Lake Charles, LA for a book conference and I’ll also be signing and selling my book afterwards. Looking forward to it. Those things always rev up my writing motor and I come back feeling totally re-inspired and ready to go again. It’s amazing how getting together with other writers and listening to other writers speak just feels so unbelievably wonderful and interesting. I can’t get enough of it.
Anyway, that’s all for now folks. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and congratulations to Courtney and Mari. Read and enjoy!

  4. One Measley Pillow -- I will gladly pay to get to read it. We (my grandson, nieces, and I) loved The Pea in Peanut Butter. As soon as I finish this comment, I'm going to go read your interview. Allyn, you are one girl who is full of life and I enjoyed getting to know you. Do great at the conference. Y'all go meet her. You'll love her. AND COURTNEY and MARI, I'll be getting your books in the mail. I hope you enjoy the story. Thanks everyone who participated.

    Book 2 of the Samantha Cain Series, Testimony of Innocence, will be coming out the middle of this year. Hope you all read Be Not Afraid, Book 1 of the Samantha Cain Series.

  5. Yay! I won! I can't wait to get my book and give it a read. Thanks so much!
