I Love My Readers! 5 Book Giveaway!


By Jody Hedlund, @JodyHedlund

My readers blow me away. Often. Whether through emails, facebook messages, twitter, or elsewhere, I've been extremely blessed with supportive readers.

I, for one, don't take for granted the lovely outpouring of support my readers offer. They're busy people with lots of favorite authors and plenty of books to choose to read these days. So when a reader takes the time to connect with me, I do my best to connect back.

I did a recent post sharing some of the creative ways that readers helped support my recent release, A Noble Groom: 7 Ideas for Crafting Creative Book Reviews.

Just last week, another reader, Monica Bruenjes drew an illustration of the characters in A Noble Groom. Here it is:


Make sure you check out Monica's website for all of her other fantastic illustrations!

Didn't she do a fantastic job?! I was SUPER delighted when she alerted me to her post with the picture she'd drawn with such a wonderful representation of the main characters, especially the little daughter Gretchen getting a pony-ride from the hero and falling asleep on his back. She looks so realistic and adorable.

Even more than the awesome picture, I'm grateful for Monica's support, her initiative to do something like this with my novel, and her willingness to share it.

While all my readers may not be drawing illustrations or doing video reviews, they are still awesome!

So I wanted to send out a short but sweet thank you to all my readers everywhere. Thank you for reading my books, for promoting them, and for encouraging me. 

Yes, I love writing and I'd likely do it even if I was the only reader of my books. But . . . my experience as an author is all that much richer because of YOU and your excitement and enthusiasm over my books!

To show my appreciation to all my wonderful readers, I'm giving away a packet of five books to one lucky winner. Four are recent Bethany House releases from author friends: Tracie Peterson, Carol Cox, Siri Mitchell, and Becky Wade.


The fifth is one choice from any of my books:


To enter the drawing, leave a comment on this post. Receive extra entries for sharing on Pinterest, Facebook, or Twitter (mention in your comment to receive credit). Due to shipping costs this giveaway is valid to U.S. addresses only.

Contest ends June 12 at 10:00 pm (ET), and the winner will be announced on my Thursday, June 13 blog post. Please check back then to see if you won!

Love to you all! So tell me, what's on your reading list for the summer?

  7. My reading list for this summer consists of the 24 books left on my TBR list! My goal every year is to finish reading all of the books I own (I haven't met it yet) with a sub goal of finishing all of the books I read prior to that year. I'm currently down to 24 unread books which include some of these authors: Melody Carlson, Sarah Sundin, Margaret Brownley, Amanda Cabot, Laurie Kingery, Vicki Hinze, Julie Lessman, Laurie Alice Eakes, and others! I also should get some other books for review!
    Thanks for this great giveaway and for being such an amazing author!

  8. I would love to win, Jody. I own most of these already, but I have a young friend at church who loves to read and is not able financially to buy many books, so I will give them to her!

  20. Hi Jody!

    I love Monica's illustrations. What a talented lady. I can't draw a straight line to save myself!:)

    I realise I'm ineligible for the draw,but thought I would make mention anyway. Good Luck to the lucky winner!

    Speaking for myself,as an avid Reader,it is very easy for me to promote your books,as you have an incredible gift for luring Readers to your novels and immediately captivate my interest.

    Since discovering your books just recently and enjoying them immensely,I certainly have no hesitation in promoting them as a... "Must Read"!

    My TBR pile is growing larger by the minute, but a cosy fire and snuggling down on a comfy lounge..AH! What better way to enjoy my "Winter" reading.LOL

    Keep writing Jody and I'll keep reading!:)

  51. I love to read and have several books from the authors you are giving away. My family gave me a Kindle several years ago and have a nice collection from Bethany on that. But there is nothing like having a paper book in your hands. I would very much like to receive your giveaway but, if it's not me, than whoever - enjoy!

  52. Well, I just finished NOBLE GROOM last week and loved it! I am currently reading Janice Cantore's AVENGED, the third in a series; very good book for lovers of suspense. I have Randy Singer's new book, Rachel Hauck's new book, and Connie Mann's new book at the top of my reading stack. And all four giveaways are on my "want to read" list on Goodreads. And I need another copy of "The Doctor's Lady". The one I purchased had a section of the story missing . . . the wedding, no less. Even with missing pages, it was a spectacular story.

  114. I have so many books on my reading list that it’s hard to name just a few. I am an avid reader and have challenged myself to read and review 100 books this year on Goodreads. So far, I’m on target with it. Occasionally, an author will specifically ask me to read and review their novel and I am always totally thrilled and honored to do so.

    I want you to know that the cartoon of the characters of “A Noble Groom" is absolutely perfect. It’s my idea of a real hero. A man who can take the time to play with a child is top of the list!

    I love all of these authors you mention here and I know their books are terrific. Nothing would tickle me more than to be the winner of your generous giveaway. Thanks so much for offering it. All the best!

  134. A couple of days ago, I finished reading A Noble Groom. What a fantastic book! I know a book is well written when I fall a bit in love with the hero! I'm currently reading Cynthia Ruchti's new book, When The Morning Glory Blooms. It is a powerful book that often moves me to tears. Next up is Stealing the Preacher by Karen Witemeyer. I never lack for something to read. I think the term "chain reader" would apply to me.
    Thanks for writing such wonderful books and also for giving away books to a blessed reader.
