Win $25 Gift Certificate

Win a $25 gift certificate. That’s right. I thought it might be fun to do a contest. I thought about offering a publishing contract to the winner, but I wanted to be as inclusive as possible.

First Chance to Win

Choose any Christian novel. I must be able to find it on Create a new title that is different by one letter. You may change a letter, delete a letter or add a letter, but only one letter. For example, Redeeming Love might become Redeeming Cove. Next, in seventy-five (75) words or less, make me want to go out and buy it. For Redeeming Cove we might say: Shania has gone through life getting what she wants and doing as she pleases. Her grades are low. Her friends are questionable. Can a summer with her grandparents in Shadow Cove turn her away from a destructive path, or is she lost forever? – Redeeming Cove In a subjective selection process, I will select the one that I would most like to read.

Second Chance to Win

Tell your friends. The winner will be given an opportunity to identify one person (presumably the person who told him/her about this contest) to receive a second $25 gift certificate.


If I choose your entry and I see your smiling face in the Followers box for this blog, I will add $10, making it a $35 gift certificate.

How to Enter

Leave your entries in the comments of this blog post. Along with your entry, identify the person who told you about this contest. Enter as many times as you like, but please don’t duplicate entries as that will not increase your chances of winning.

Deadline and Winner Announcement

I will be making a selection no sooner than 12:01 AM Sunday, May 17 CDT. That gives you a little over a week. I will announce the winner via a blog post, sometime after that. At that time, I will ask the two winners for a valid e-mail address for prize delivery.
