Kisses from Katie – A Giveaway

Almost two years ago, I tweeted my good friend, Jason Stasyszen one day to tell him what a phenomenal book I was reading – “Mad Church Disease.” And the next thing I knew, we were having a once-a-week book discussion on our blogs.


I have to say that it’s been one of the most challenging, but amazing discussions I’ve ever taken part in. I’ve been inspired and changed throughout each and every discussion.


Today, I get to announce the 5th book.


Yes, the FIFTH book!


Can you believe it?!


After a lot of discussion and prayer, Jason and some of our other regular book discussion friends have decided that we will be reading a new book—a memoir—called “Kisses for Katie.” It’s the story of a young girl who visited Uganda on a short-term mission trip as a high school student and now, within a few short years has moved to Uganda and begun to change the world. You may or may not have heard of it. Because I’m a bookstore-fanatic and I spend many nerdy moments surfing online bookstores, too, I had heard of it. In fact, when Jason posed it as a possibility, my heart jumped because I recalled having seen it in the store and wanting to buy it. When Jason mentioned it, I just knew that it was “the one.”


You can read about it here: “Kisses for Katie.”


So, it’s time for the fifth book and that means that it’s time for the fifth GIVEAWAY!


Everybody loves a giveaway!


And for the giveaway, we have ground rules. They go like this:


  1. Although we’re doing a book discussion with this book, you do not have to participate to win. If you just want the book, that’s cool with us. But we would love for you to consider joining us for at least some of the discussion. We believe you have a lot to add!
  2. If you want to purchase a copy, you can click the link and purchase it. (No, I don’t get a commission. I’m just sharing the info and hoping you enjoy the book as much as I plan to.)
  3. Jason and I are each giving away one copy of the book. That gives you two chances to win. This week, you enter. Next week, we will each select and announce a winner! The following week, we will begin discussion.


And now I’ll bet you want to know how to win. This is how:


  1. Each time you comment on this post, you earn one entry.
  2. Each time you tweet or retweet about this giveaway, you earn one entry. (Just make sure you mention me — @sarahmsalter – when you tweet or retweet so that I can track your entries.)
  3. Each time you mention the giveaway on your website, blog, or Facebook, you’ll earn three entries. (You’re going to want to leave me a comment here, with a link, to let me know what you’ve done so that you can get credit for your entries.)

The winner will be chosen next Tuesday night by a random number generator. It’s that simple.


When you leave here today, make sure to go by Jason’s site to enter there. It doubles your chances of winning and you might just meet some pretty cool people over there if you haven’t been there before.


Remember! You have 7 days and next Wednesday, we announce winners! And two weeks from today, the discussion begins.


Ready… Set… GO!
