Congratulations to Lisa Towns Myers, winner of the stunning “Star in Common” quilt made by my Old Order Amish friend whom I hold in high regard, Emma Stoltzfus of E.S. Quilts in Lancaster, PA. and to Cheryl Hart, winner of the Kindle Fire 7. Both will also receive a signed copy of A Letter from Lancaster County.  You can expect to receive an email to request your mailing address.

Why did I give away the splendid quilt I would dearly love to own? Both to show appreciation to my readers like you and to support my friend Emma’s wholesale business.

Thanks to all of you, for your interest and encouragement. I’m in your debt. Special thanks go out to those who wrote a short two or three sentence review on Amazon or another online book vendor (Those reviews are better than a years worth of chocolate!) or wrote an encouraging note on my Facebook page, liked my Author Wall, visited my blog, or Retweeted or liked a tweet. Phew, I have a lot to be thankful for and I owe it all to you!


Upcoming News: Face Book Author Chat Party on Keeping up with the Amish next week where I’ll ask and answer questions, and have fun. And with my love of giveaways, of course I’ll be giving away four Amish-made Prizes and signed books.  I will be asking and answering questions that are general enough that reading A Letter from Lancaster County is not mandatory. You must be a member of Keeping up with the Amish to participate. Still time to join if you wish. So come chat with me on Thursday, August 3, 2017, at 8:00 EST.
