Option 2:

For those of you who have a moment, I wanted to share why I'm doing what I'm doing for the Faking Normal Holiday giveaway.

While some people find the holidays a wonderful time, others battle loneliness and depression. I wish that weren't true, but I know it is, and I'd like to help bring a little more joy into the world. So this holiday season, I thought rather than have you tweet about Faking Normal, I'd invite you to help make make some ripples in the ocean of pain and loneliness and darkness and sadness and grief and seasonal affectiveness and negative thoughts and all the other stuff that hurts.

We can do this through encouragement. It's simple, but having someone who believes in me is one of the things that gets me through the day. We can give that to people if we will just stop, take a second, and send someone a note of encouragement. The holidays are about giving and words are a powerful gift. Give someone the gift of telling them they matter and that you believe in them.

All you have to do to enter the contest is send someone a tweet, email, or Facebook message that says:

(Their name), you matter to me & I believe in you. Happy Holidays! #Channelyourbrave

I have 60 handmade Faking Normal items to give away. There are Faking Normal magnets, Faking Normal ARC star ornaments, and Faking Normal ARC canvases. One winner will receive an ARC and the grand prize winner will receive an ARC, ornament, Channel Your Brave t-shirt and bracelet.

The contest is open from December 24th-26th. There will be 60 winners. Please retweet or share the message so more people will participate. I will accept international entries, but to win the grandprize you have to live in the States.

If you pre-order Faking Normal on these three days, you will automatically receive a handmade gift. Just send proof of the receipt in an email to channelingbrave@gmail.com and your address.

Thank you for participating. Happy Holidays.

  5. I also did these: -Liking my author page on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/CourtneyCStevens
    -Adding Faking Normal on Goodreads - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15726915-faking-normal?from_search=true

    Sometimes the holidays are very hard. My husband, my two dogs, and I have had a terrible year, with no sign of improvement. Even as bad as it is for us, my sister has been dealing with the loss of her only child - my only niece - since 2004. I can't even begin to imagine how she makes it through each day but she does, and that is why I posted the comment on Facebook for her.
