Due to an error in the original blog posts about Faith's cover reveal, the entry for the giveaway has been extended more than one full day! You have until noon Central time on Friday, October 16th to enter the giveaway. If you tried to email the cover before, please do so again, this time with the following, CORRECT email address: Thank you!

One of the greatest things about the advent of ebook reading, is that it has opened up a whole
world of genres that I never would have dreamed of reading. Wandering around a book store, there are only so many books you could buy.  Now, thanks to ebooks and my fellow authors, I have been introduced to all manner of dragons, intergalactic travel (including a starship base that requires everyone to maintain their weight so that the base doesn't "sink"), faeries, goblins and wicked queens. All of these new worlds have enriched my reading experienced and confirmed in me the belief that reading is the best form of time travel.

     But I still always go back to my favorite genres, my comfort "food," westerns and mysteries.  As all of you know, I have become a great fan of Faith Blum whose stories are rich with historical fact and genuine characters.

It is a privilege to be a part of her new "Cover Reveal" -- enjoy and good luck!

     Faith Blum, has split her cover into 15 different pieces! In order to enter her giveaway, you need to put it together and email her your cover. Or, if you don’t want to enter the giveaway, but you’d still like to see the cover, stop by her blog on Thursday.

The Prize

The winner will have to be patient, but the prize for this cover reveal is a signed paperback copy of Lily of the Valley. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of shipping internationally, Faith won’t be sending a paperback outside of the U.S. If you are international and would like to participate and win, you will receive an ebook copy of any TWO of my published books including Lily of the Valley.

To help you a little with putting together the cover, here is the description:

Howdy, Teacher! You don’t know me, but my kids talk bout you a lot. I been lookin fer a wife and mother fer a few years and was wonderin iffen we cood meet and get to no each other a bit. I’ll come after school to git yer answer. Grover Miller

Unruly schoolchildren, three suitors, and too many things to do. When Ruth Brookings rejects one of the suitors, he refuses to accept no for an answer. To make matters worse, when she prays for guidance, she’s answered with a challenge instead: To encourage her friend to find a wife—whether he wants one or not.  Will she lose her friend just when she needs a friend the most? Will she be able to weather the storms she’s about to face?


Stop by each blog listed below to get their piece of the cover.
Use a program like this website to put the cover together: If you get a little extra space between each piece, your cover will still count toward the prize. It doesn’t have to be perfect as long is each piece is in the correct place.
Email your completed cover to Faith NO LATER THAN October 14th at 9:00 PM Central time. (If you have problems with time zones, shoot Faith an email and she’ll help you out).
Stop by Faith’s blog to see the cover and who won.

  1. Hello :)
    The image doesn't appear to be showing up - I'm wondering if it's just my computer, or if it just didn't show up in the post (I've had that problem with my blog)?

  2. Hi I am really sorry about this - I thought we had solved the problem as I can see the picture in "preview" and have never had this problem before. I am in touch with Faith right now.

    1. I'm sorry it's being difficult for you! I've had this problem on my blog, but mine is Wordpress - I don't know much about Blogger. I wish you the best though! :)

    2. Yeah, this is a first and I am so disappointed as I really love Faith's work.

  3. Oh it has shown up now! Thank you so much! And I hope you don't have the same problem again - blogging stuff can be a headache sometimes!

    1. I know it - I haven't had that problem before - so sorry it happened when there was a prize involved.
