Melinda and the Wild West:

To launch the release of Linda Weaver Clark's new book,

Jenny's Dream:
A Family's Saga in Bear Lake, Idaho

on Dec. 1st, I am going to have 2 giveaways in the next 2 weeks!! Since this is the third book in the series, I am going to give away the first 2 books. You can easily read the books independently, but I found I wanted to start from the beginning.

I will have another book giveaway for the 2nd book "Edith and the Mysterious Stranger" from Nov. 24th - 30th and announce the winner on Monday Dec 1st, the day of the release of the new, 3rd book "Jenny's Dream."

2. For an extra entry, just make a post on you blog about my contest that has a link back here and put the link in comments so I can verify it.

3. This contest is for the "Melinda" book only from Nov. 17 - Nov. 10pm CT. Winner will be emailed and announced by the evening of Nov. 24th. The contest is open to anyone in the U.S. or Canada.

My favorite historical fiction writer is Linda Lael Miller. My friend, Ashley Ludwig, is getting ready to publish her first historical romance "All or Nothing" this spring, so I'll list her too!

Don't laugh, but my favorite is still Laura Ingalls Wilder. However, I've never understood exactly why her books are listed as historical fiction.... I would have listed them as autobiographies.... perhaps you can clarify that for me.

Having read her books as a child and having read them with all four of our children, I love them not only for the words she has written and the life she describes but for the warm memories they bring to mind.

Thanks for the opportunity of this drawing!

My favorite author is Laura Ingalls Wilder because I was born and raised in the area where she lived. I experienced many of the same events that she wrote about. Please emter me in the book giveaway contest. My email address is:

My favorite historical novelist is Kate Grenville. She wrote the Secret River and I highly recommend it!

I just found out about this so I don't have time to get it on my blog for others to see in time.

Linda Weaver Clarke is my favorite historical novelist. Knowing Linda and her beautiful spirit, I find that her love of life, family, and history come through beautifully in her writing. I find her work captivating, and hear her musical voice on every page. Wouldn't these books make great films? -- who out there is ready to start producing?
