The Midwife Book Trailer & Giveaway!

Hello, friends!

Shew! Has it been a busy past few days, but I’m sure all of you have been busy as well. Is it the warmer weather, perhaps? Everybody coming out of hibernation and getting things done?

Either way, I am thoroughly enjoy this pre-launch nesting phase (forgive me, I’ve got babies on the brain), and I’m so eager to place The Midwife in your hands. I just received the gorgeous finished copies last week.


I had a radio interview on WHUB Thursday, which went well; it’s always slightly thrilling to have a reason to get dressed before dawn (the UPS man is used to seeing me in my bathrobe) and swinging by Starbucks like a regular career woman. 😉


Today, The Midwife had its first book signing at Foxleaf Bookstore; the rain held off just long enough for me to have the signing outside. As you’ve probably guessed by now, I love chatting with strangers.


Afterward, I received word that the book trailer for The Midwife was completed. Sophia Boyce Photography did a great job, just like she did with The Outcast, and I’m so excited to share the finished version with you!

In honor of the book trailer being here, and of The Midwife launching in less than a month, I’m giving away a copy of The Midwife and The Outcast!

Winners get to choose between The Outcast’s regular edition or the large print, hardcover edition, which just came to my doorstep today! Isn’t it beautiful? :)

To enter, just tell me what’s your favorite summer activity?


Well, without further ado, I will leave you with the lovely book trailer by Sophia Boyce. If you’re interested in her work, you can email her for more information at


Well, I was trying to get all fancy on ya, but providing this link for the book trailer is the best that I can do! 😉

    I can hardly wait to read “The Midwife.” My Momma and I love the Amish and love to visit Amish communities.
    My favorite summer activity is simply sitting on my Momma’s front porch. She has these great rocking chairs and a porch swing. We sit out there for hours at a time – just being together.

    HUGE CONGRATS to another Jolina book baby charming the masses. I wish you all the best. Now, I know we other belles can’t win and that’s cool– but Belle Friday here LOVES being on the lake in the summer with family! :)

    Psstt…do we have you hooked up to visit ATS LIVE again? I’m falling short scheduling my fellow belles. Y’all are going to have to help me remember. Life, it is moving fast!

      Yes, life IS moving fast, Miss Shellie! Thank you for your sweet blessings on my book baby #2! We are scheduled for ATS Live–June 16th! So looking forward to hearing that sweet voice of yours. :)

    Jolina, congrats on your new book baby! My favorite summertime activity is going for walks at the seashore or in the mountains – just to be outside with friends and family.

    Congratulations on the new book baby! Can’t wait to read it! One of my many favorite summer activities is going to the Farmer’s Market and coming home to cook creamed corn, fried okra and baby lima beans, and slice some homegrown tomatoes. Peaches make the dessert! I love the fresh fruits and veggies!

    Congratulations!! So, so happy for you!!

    I’d probably hafta say my fav part of summer is sitting on the porch on a summer night, strumming the guitar and singing to the “Keeper of the stars.” Esp now with little ones to introduce to Orion and lightning bugs and all the awesome night sounds Jesus made!

      I forgot that you played guitar, Rebekah! What sweet memories for those babies of yours. Nothing like the stars in summer, especially in Tennessee when the humidity’s cleared!

  6. says

    PS–I watched the trailer, and The Midwife sounds riveting: a story that must be told and heard. I pray God’s gracious blessings on you, your family, and this book! May He use it in a way that only He could! Love ya!

    I’m late ringing in today, Jolina, but I love the book trailer for The Midwife! So wonderful to hear you read the intro in person.

    Congratulations on this upcoming release. I can’t wait to read it and welcome it to the porch at BelleView!

    I was quite intrigued by the trailer. Congratulations on your new novel! To answer your question: my favorite summer activity is traveling. I love to go to the beach, to visit places I haven’t been and to visit places I love.

  9. Melanie Backus says

    Another great book from one of the best! A big congrats to you! I keep hoping we are in the same Sam’s Club one day, looking at the book section, when I glance up, see your smiling face, and with pen in hand, I get you to autograph your wonderful books for me. What a thrill and you never know, it is a small world!

    Oh yes, summer, filled with warm, sun filled days, means fishing for me.

  10. Susan Roberts says

    Congratulations on the new book. It sounds fantastic and I would love to win a copy. It may sound strange but one of my favorite summer activities is canning vegetables with my husband. He always has a big garden and we do the canning together. We always have fun while we are canning plus we know that we’ll have those good vegetables to eat during the winter!

  11. Donna Armstrong says

    My favorite summer activity is to sit on my porch swing and watch my grandbabies playing.

  12. Lani says

    Loved your trailer for the new book. Beautiful scenery there in Tennessee! One of my favorite summer time activities is going to the beach. Nothing like warm sand, ocean waves, and a good book : )

  13. says

    Thank you! I do love Tennessee, though my husband gets too hot here and is eyeing up Montana. We’ll be doing some crazy book trailers out there. 😉 Hope you have a great time at the beach!

    Hello Jolina. Congrats on your new book. I’ve been wanting The Midwife for awhile so would be glad to win it. As to summer, really nothing much different happens in summer around here. I do hope to get to visit a out-of-town daughter for a short time and maybe A closer granddaughter with 5 of my great-grands. Used to like to sit on porch and read, But it’s mosquito time so bad here. And, I can’t stand as much heat as when I was younger so look forward to when the kids visit. Maxie
