The Click Trilogy Giveaway

If you are looking for a quick, delightful read-- the Click Trilogy is perfect! This collection of books includes Click, Double Click, and Right Click, all by the lovely Lisa Becker. I first read "Click" several years ago, and just fell in love with it. It is a fun, fast, and romantic read. Perfect for Spring!



We asked Lisa Becker our 5 interview questions for the month!

1. What inspires you to write? 
I've always been a sucker for a good love story.  I was inspired to start writing when I met my husband online more than 16 years ago when online dating was in its infancy.  After we married, I was recalling some of the hilarious experiences that I had with both traditional and online dating.  I decided to capture some of them in writing and from there, my first novel emerged.   My ultimate goal was to create a fun read for anyone who has ever had a bad date, been in love, been dumped, or is searching for "the one."  But, the happy ending is real.  Steve and I have been happily married for 13+ years and have two amazing daughters - ages 12 and 10. I continue to write to give hope to everyone that love is out there and remind them of my grandmother’s favorite saying: "for every chair, there is a tush." 

2. Who is your favorite author? 
Right now, I am obsessed with books by Colleen Hoover.  Her books draw you in from the very beginning and have these amazing, interesting, unique twists to them that make them compelling but very realistic.  I highly recommend checking out her books. My favorites are Ugly Love and November 9.

3. Tell us a little bit about a book you have written. 
The clique trilogy is comprised of three books – Click: An Online Love Story, Double Click, and Right Click.  The first book follows Renee Greene, who is fast approaching her 30th birthday and finding herself not married, not dating, and without even a prospect or a house full of cats.  She reluctantly joins her best guy pal on a journey to find love online in Los Angeles. The story unfolds through a series of emails between Renee and her best friends as well as the gentlemen suitors she meets online. Renee endures her share of hilarious and heinous cyber dates. Fraught with BCC's, FWD's and inadvertent Reply to All's, readers will root for Renee to "click" with the right man.  Double Click picks up six months after the original book ends, with Right Click taking place an additional six months later. 

4. What new and exciting things do we have to look forward to from you? 
In 2015, I released a novella called Clutch, chronicling the dating misadventures of Caroline Johnson, a single purse designer who compares her unsuccessful romantic relationships to styles of handbags.  Based on the great response, I received a publishing deal to release an expanded version of the book.  It should be available in August.

5. What helps you to stay happy? 
I tell my children to “choose grateful every day!”  Happiness is a choice.  Whatever is happening in your life, you can look for and find happiness.  I often find it with my husband, children, friends or a good book.

Love and War: Timeless (She Remembers) Giveaway!

I am so excited to bring you one of MY favorite things-- the author Josie Blaine. She is a lovely person AND a lovely writer and she has an all new book out called Love and War.

This month, we are going to be focusing on being happier, and bringing things into our lives that bring us joy. One of the things that brings me great joy is reading! With that in mind, each week I am going to introduce you to a new author you may not have heard of before, AND we will give away a Kindle copy of that author's most recent book!

This week, we are featuring Josie Blaine and her newest book Love and War. Josie is actually one of my very best friends, and we have known each other for over 20 years!!!! 

I asked Josie some questions about writing (we asked all of our featured authors the same questions):

1. What inspires you to write? 
I write because I can't not write.
2. Who is your favorite author?
My favorite author of all time is Laura Ingalls Wilder.

3. Tell us a little bit about a book you have written. 
Something About Sophia is the story of my great great grandmother. It is the tale of my family planting themselves on the plains, via the railroad and faith.

4. What new and exciting things do we have to look forward to from you?
A love story is on the way, and my publishing imprint, Sunflower Press ND, will be sharing stories of hope.
5. What helps you to stay happy?
My family is healthy. My friends are loyal, and my coffee is strong. Above all, God is faithful.
Josie's most recent book Love and War is a great fun, fast read. I enjoyed every moment, and it had me laughing and loving the characters! Set in the Dakotas, we see that "war stories" and "love stories" do not differ much from the past and the present. The book interweaves the stories to create a timeless story of love . . . and war. You can purchase your own copy at: 

And if you have Kindle Unlimited, you can download it for FREE!

Daily Deals Sites: The One We Still Love

So, WAY back in 2012 (wow! 5 years ago!) we used to post all of the time about daily deal sites. You know the ones-- and I loved them because they had their hay day when I had a baby-- Baby Half Off, MamaBargains, BabySteals, etc.

In case you didn't notice, almost every one of these companies have closed their doors. Many of them were my favorite sites to visit! And I would visit (and often buy from them) daily.
Today, I want to feature one of the sites that still remains (and still remains awesome) and why I STILL--- after all of these years LOVE them.



I was first introduced to the Steals network around the time they launched (within a few months). They launched April 2008, and I started shopping with them, I believe, in 2008 when my son was a baby (and we had first moved to the North). Either way, I have been shopping with them a LONG time. So why do I (and I think other moms) love them-- and they are able to survive the test of time:


  1. Customer Service. When other companies had lackluster customer service, the Steals Network has risen about the rest. I remember when they were every small and I emailed to ask a question, the agent emailed back asking about one of my children BY NAME (I was apparently even more active on their Facebook fan site than I thought). They have always been responsive to any errors. In fact, this past holiday season, there was an error in my order and it was corrected immediately (I got a refund because sadly my item was sold out). I think it was taken care of within 24 hours of me emailing though! Super fast service-- always. 
  2. They LISTEN to their customers. When we all said "shipping is too high" they found us lower shipping. When people ask them to look into a brand, they usually do. Have a brand you want featured? Email them! 
  3. Jana Francis. Jana Francis. Jana Francis. She is the brand and the brand is definitely her. There are actually 2 owners), but Jana is always talking to her customers, producing videos, chatting on the fan pages-- she is very present. And I think that matters. She is a real person behind this brand and she shows her love and passion for it-- even after 9 years! 
  4. Innovation-- what I love about steals is their willingness to try new things. They have tried more than 1 steal a day (they are back to 1 a day at 8 a.m. PST), a chat and trading site (which I LOVED!!!!), live sales (which I LOVED even more!!!! And I hope they have another because it was a BLAST!!!!), and lots more. I love the updates and the constant strive to make things better! 
  5. The points system! This was one of the new things they have tried and I love it. Did you know you can get 8 points a day just from logging into each of the steals sites? 100 points = $1 so it doesn't seem like a lot, but it adds up! You can get over 200 points a month, which will be about $25 in a year. Just make sure you are logged in and you will see your $$$ add up every day. 
  6. Finally, your baby can grow with the Steals sites. Of course BabySteals is my favorite-- but once your child gets older, you can move on to KidSteals, and of course there is something for mamas at SheSteals and scrapbook items at ScapbookSteals. A good variety of items every day! 

We will be featuring items from the Steals sites each week (some we own, some that are that day's steals) so join us! 

(For those curious, MamaBargains, BabyHalfOff, GreenBabyBargains, EcoBabyBuys, GaGaDeals, ASideofPeaches, and many more have all shut down).
