I'm Doing a Valentine's Day Giveaway!

Today is my husband's 50th birthday, so yay! Here we are at the Biltmore Estate last February:


In celebration of his birthday, I'm kicking off a cool new giveaway. My book, 25 Roses, has a Valentine's Day theme. And guess what? Tween girls are really, really hard to buy for on Valentine's Day.

So I'm making it easy for you! I'm giving away this package of three gifts for tween girls. Or you can keep them for yourself.



This pack includes an autographed copy of 25 Roses, a chocolate rose like the ones in the book, a $25 Amazon gift card, and a gift bag. If you're an international entrant, I can't promise the pack will arrive in time for Valentine's Day, so keep that in mind when entering.

The giveaway ends at 12 a.m. February 9th and it will be in the mail that day. Here's the Rafflecopter:

  1. That's a great gift.
    Happy birthday to your husband!
    I've been to Asheville, but never visited the Biltmore. Just never had time. (As I understand even a full day isn't enough.)

    1. I'll be honest with you--I think a full day is plenty. The tour is long and there's lots to see, but if you're relatively close, you can do the whole thing in a weekend. I do recommend spending some time in the village near the mansion. There are so many charming shops and restaurants in beautiful Tudor-style buildings. (I LOVE tudor houses!)

  5. I've been to Biltmore before, not that far away from where I live. We went there on a field trip in middle school probably something like in the year 1999-2000

    1. That was my first trip there. I'd love to go back--but I was mostly impressed with the town around it.

  6. What a fun giveaway in honor of your husband's birthday and Valentine's Day! And those are the best kinds of roses - chocolate! :)

    1. They are! Most schools hand out carnations for the Valentine's Day swap, but I had to make them chocolate. Although I'm realizing now that I haven't even tried a chocolate rose since childhood.

  21. What a generous giveaway. A very happy birthday to your husband, though from the look of that photo the man is a baby-snatcher. Where did you find the potion of eternal youth?

  26. I know some tween girls who would love those gifts. It's very nice of you to have this giveaway. I've never been to Biltmore, but I've visited some of the other old, beautiful estates in the U.S. It's always great to see the artwork and learn bits of trivia about the people who lived there.

    Love,
    Janie

  33. LOVE the covers. Believe it or not, but my tween doesn't read books like this. She either reads Diary of a Wimpy Kid or adult romances by Robyn Carr. She won't even read Harry Potter, even though she loved the movies. :(

  34. Happy BIG birthday to your husband I hope he's clever and celebrates all year. Lucky him for you to be already thinking of Valentines day :) That's a great giveaway!

  42. Hi Stephanie! Happy birthday to your husband! And someone here is going to get the birthday/Valentines Day gift!
    I have never been to the Biltmore, but it looks gorgeous. And so do the two of you, what a handsome couple. I'm surprised they didn't have you move right in :)
    I didn't enter your giveaway because the Rafflecopter isn't loading on my iPAD. That's okay, it will give someone else a better chance.
    Have a fun celebration!

  46. Happy birthday to your husband! Great giveaway too.

    I was sad that your book isn't at the Scholastic Book Fair. I guess since the school only goes to fifth grade we don't get all the great MG books. :(

  47. Happy Birthday to your husband....what a lovely place to visit, I've never been to Biltmore Estate but it's on my bucketlist. I put 25 Roses on my tween's wishlist as well as 30 Day's of Gossip, I know my daughter (also named Maddie) will love these books, they look fun.
