Interview and Giveaway with Dawn Byrd!!!

Hello everyone! As you know, I usually do author interviews/giveaways on Thursdays. 

However, due to severe ongoing problems with my computer, I had to change my day to Monday for this week only.

So…I have a special treat for you. Please welcome fellow author, Dawn Byrd, as a guest on my blog! Dawn is giving away a copy of her latest book. Read on for the details…

I am excited about your new release. Please give us a short blurb about your book. 

India McGuire had no idea that a long, lost love from years ago would breeze back into town the night she accepts an engagement ring from another man. Should she keep the ring and the stability that comes with it or risk everything and follow her heart?

 Product Details

What was your inspiration behind writing this book and what do you hope readers will take away from your book?

When the idea came to me, I was studying WWII and wondered what would happen if a young man goes away to war and returns to find his girlfriend engaged to someone else. Not too many pages into the story, the WWII era just didn’t feel right and it became a contemporary romance. I hope that readers will take away how important it is to ask for God’s guidance when it comes to matters of the heart.

One lucky commenter will win a wonderful prize. Can you tell us about the giveaway?

This Time for Keeps is available right now only in E format. We’ll be giving away a gift card for a free download.

Ooh, awesome, Dawn! So…do you have a favorite Bible verse?

Jeremiah 29:11- For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Where do you see yourself in five years? In otherwords, what are your hopes, dreams, and goals?

Since I love my day job so much, I hope to continue to work it and Lord willing, I’ll still be writing. I’d like to find the perfect agent somewhere along the way.

If you were given a million dollars to start a charity, what type of charity would you start and why?

I would start a charity that had something to do with animals. There are way too many abused and unwanted animals in the world.

Can you share with us something interesting about you that most people do not know?

I used to ride my own Harley Davidson. I’ve owned three motorcycles, the most recent a Harley Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod. I gave up riding in order to have more time to write.

What’s next on your writing agenda?

Here’s my release schedule for 2012:

January- Zoe Mack & The Secret of the Love Letters

April- Shattered Identity (the sequel to Mistaken Identity)

June- Zoe Mack &  The Case of Fatal Attraction

December- Zoe Mack Book 3 (as yet untitled)

Sounds like you’ve been busy! I am doubly excited about all of your releases!

Interview and Giveaway with Author K. Dawn Byrd!

I am honored to have Author K. Dawn Byrd as my guest today. She is giving away a gift card for a free download of her latest book Mistaken Identity to one lucky commenter! Plus, those who are subscribers to this blog will receive two entries. Giveaway ends June 30. So, without further ado, here’s Dawn!

Hello Dawn. Thank you for being here today. I am excited about your recent release titled Mistaken Identity. Please give us a short blurb about your book. 

Eden Morgan longs for a boyfriend of her own, an impossible goal when her best friend, Lexi Branson, gets all the attention and all the guys. When they fall in love with the same guy,Edenbelieves she doesn’t have a chance. She can only hope that sometimes the good girl gets the guy.

Your book sounds great and I love the cover! What was your inspiration behind writing this book and what do you hope readers will take away from your book?

I admire Christian teenagers so much. We’ll never know what they go through as they stand for their faith. I wrote this book to inspire those who might be wondering if it’s worth it all. My advice is to keep on keeping on!

That’s awesome advice, Dawn, and I admire you for writing a book that both young adults and adults alike can enjoy. Speaking of books, can you give us the titles of some of your other books?

Queen of Hearts (WWII romantic suspense, 2010)

Killing Time (contemporary romantic suspense set in a jail, 2010)

This Time for Keeps (contemporary romance, coming in October 2011)

The Zoe Mack Mystery Series (young adult mystery-romance, debuts in January)

One lucky commenter will win a wonderful prize. Can you tell us about the giveaway? I’d planned on giving away some mouse pads, but my supplier decided to stop carrying them. So, we’ll do a gift card for a free copy of the book instead. 

Do you have a favorite Bible verse? Jeremiah 29:11-  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

I love it because it reminds me that God knows me personally and he has plans for me. He knows my future. He holds me in the palm of His hand.

I agree, Dawn. That’s one of my favorite Bible verses as well.  So, where do you see yourself in five years? In otherwords, what are your hopes, dreams, and goals?

In five years, I hope not much has changed in my life. I told someone today that I feel so blessed. I’m sure I’ll still be working the day job and I love so much and writing at night. 

And now for one of my favorite questions to ask…if you were given a million dollars to start a charity, what type of charity would you start and why? I’m a huge animal lover. I’d fund spay/neuter clinics so that there aren’t so many unwanted animals born. 

I love your answer, Dawn! Can you tell me what’s next on your writing agenda? I just signed a contract for a young adult mystery series. My heroine, Zoe Mack, is a lot like Nancy Drew, but more mature and there will be a lot more romance in the series. The first will debut in January. 

Ooh, that sounds like it’s going to be a great series! And last, but not least, where can readers connect with you? (website, blog, twitter, FB, etc.)
