$25 Amazon GC - Life on Hold Book Blast - Ends Oct 4/12(WW)

NOTE: This Is Not My Review/Giveaway, I Am Just Helping To Promote In Exchange a link(s) on The Rafflecopter Form! 

Life on Hold by Beverly Stowe McClure


A paper found.
A secret revealed.
A girl's life changed forever.

Myra Gibson's life is a lie. For sixteen years her parents have kept their secret, but the adoption paper she discovers while cleaning the guest house tells the truth. As the past and present collide, Myra finally stands up for herself and begins a journey she may regret.






Reviews:

"All I can say is wow! Beverly Stowe McClure knocked this one out of the ballpark. The story of Myra and her search for the truth touched upon one of the fundamental needs of all children (and teens): the need for a father in their lives. ... The school librarian at the middle school where I teach is already looking into buying a copy for the school library. It's that good."
~Award Winning Author Darby Karchut- http://darbykarchut.blogspot.com

"Beverly did an awesome job with this book. Myra's character and the decisions she make throughout the book are believable. Her friends, family and love interest, Jeremy, are all characters that the readers can relate to."
~Peggy Tibbetts - http://www.peggytibbetts.net/



About the Author:

When Beverly Stowe McClure was a child she hated to read. Even though her eighth grade teacher sent her poem “Stars” to the National High School Poetry Association, and it was published in Young America Sings, an anthology of Texas high school poetry, she hated to write. In spite of her rocky relationship with books, she attended Midwestern State University, where she read too many books to count, and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. She taught in elementary school for twenty-two years. Reading Dr. Seuss to her sons and Newbery winners to her students made Beverly realize what she’d been missing: Reading was fun.
Now, she reads most every day. She also writes. Her articles for children’s magazines, many of them about activities her classes did in school, have been published in leading children‘s magazines. One article was reprinted in a Scott Foresman Anthology, Grades PK/K. Her doggie story appeared in a Chicken Soup for the Soul book.

Beverly’s five novels for teens and tweens are published by small Indie Publishers. Her YA historical novel, Caves, Cannons, and Crinolines, is a finalist in the 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, Novella Division. The book also is a finalist in Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards, Teen Fiction, and is an Honor Award Winner in the Reader's Favorite Book Award Contest, YA Category, as well as an Honor Winner in the Eric Hoffer Book Awards, YA Category.  Listen to the Ghost was a finalist in the 2003 Dream Realm Awards. Her first picture book came out in June 2011. Her latest book, Life on Hold, is a YA contemporary novel. She lives in the country with her husband, two cats, and a variety of wild critters that come to visit.

Tina from Baby Costcutters received both sets in exchange for this review and giveaway. 

This is what she had to say about the items:
"Since my youngest is now two I received these knowing they would be for a great baby gift. My husband has a friend at work having a little boy so I though these would be perfect for them. All the materials are 100% cotton and 100% polyester making them super easy to machine wash. I did open the packages to check them out {our friend will understand why I opened them lol} the stitches in the sewing all look very nice and the material is very soft. The Udder Cover is 100% breathable cotton, so the little one will not be hot under there :) The car seat cover will work wonderfully with the winter months approaching fast. "

Concilium by Michelle Pickett

A tale of deadly creatures and forbidden romance...

Leslee hit a strange animal with her car. Now she’s marked for death.

It was a simple car accident – the animal didn’t even die – but it drew the attention of the Cruor Imbibo. Driven by their insatiable need to feed, the secret society of Imbibo has devoured the dregs of civilization for centuries. Afraid Leslee will expose them, and put an end to their meal ticket, the Imbibo want her dead.

The Concilium is Leslee's only protection. Guardian of the ancient secret and the protector of humans, the Concilium fights to control the Imbibo and end their feeding frenzy. Miller works for the Concilium. Keeping Leslee alive is his next assignment.

Now Leslee is on the run, and the only thing between her flesh and the snapping jaws of the Imbibo is Miller. He and Leslee quickly form a bond, but will falling in love make Miller’s job more difficult? Because if he fails, Leslee will be next on the Imbibo menu.

The Cruor Imbibo are coming, and they're coming for Leslee.

Baby Costcutters has teamed up with a great group of bloggers to offer three Kid Basix Stainless Steel products. Winners Choice!

About our Sponsor:
Kid Basix provides stainless steel bottles, sippy cups, and sports bottles. With the cups being made out of stainless steel you do not have to worry about BPA :) The SafeSippy 2 cup comes with a straw and three different inserts to adjust to your child's needs; a plug to put in if you are traveling, a sippy valve if they are still used to turning the cup up to drink, and a straw and drink through adapter.

Great news: While this giveaway is going on through October 8th you can save 20% off your entire order with the code: babycostcutters.
Baby Costcutters was given three cups to review in exchange for this giveaway. 
Here is what she had to say:
"My kids love these cups. When they came all three of them wanted to use them right away....even the 2-year-old. His was the SafeSippy 2 cup. The three different valves you can use in this cup will come in very handy as he moved through the sippy cup stages. My older two boys each received a Safe Sporter cup. They are using them to bring to school for snack time and are enjoying using them. We have not had any problems with leaks at all. With the cups being made out of stainless steel they are very durable cups and seem like they will last a long time!"
