Happy Monday Everyone! Remember those old commercials designed to whisk you away from you current situation into something fabulous, interesting, unique, and fun? Well, on this dog-day-middle-of-summer-Monday, my friends, I have one those for you.
Feeling rundown? Wiped out? Tired of the same… old… grind? Then, you need the Magic Mental Miracle Wand! Wave it and, poof! You’re not stuck in the office or home with a bunch of kids who are bored, bored, bored with summer. One shake of the Miracle Wand, and you’re on the beach, soaking up rays, building sand castles, having adventures, smelling the sat air, and working on a killer tan!
Okay, seriously, I wish I had the Magic Miracle Wand to offer you this Monday (I’d buy one myself) but I do have the next best thing. Today, porch pals, Colleen Coble and I have teamed up to bring you a Beach Bums Giveaway featuring an adorable Outer Banks Lighthouses tote bag, a $50 coupon sea glass jewelry shop coupon, and autographed books set on the beautiful Outer Banks! The prize winner will receive Colleen’s newest Hope Beach novel, Seagrass Pier, my Hatteras novel, The Prayer Box, and an early copy of my upcoming September book, The Story Keeper.
If you can’t drop what you’re doing right now and take off for the beach, the next best thing is opening a book and taking a little literary day trip. In the meantime, how about a little mental vacation with a few photos from the Outer Banks and some inspiring quotes about the magic of sand and sea?
Outer Banks Beach Bums Book Giveaway!
Just for fun and to celebrate Colleen’s new Outer Banks book, Seagrass Pier, we’re giving away a Beach Bums book pack featuring an Outer Banks tote bag, Outer Banks refrigerator magnets, a $50 sea glass shop gift certificate, and best of all THREE SIGNED BOOKS! The winner will receive Seagrass Pier, The Prayer Box, and an early reader’s edition of The Story Keeper (upcoming in September). We’ll leave the giveaway open all week and announce a winner here on BelleView on Sunday, and on our Facebook pages. To enter, answer the !uestion Of the Day in the comments below!
