Miracle On I-40 Book Giveaway

Where did the year go? Are you thinking that? Are you one of the organized types, who has all your Christmas gifts bought, even perhaps wrapped and neatly stuck in a closet? Or are you like me, with a few presents in shopping bags hidden, well, somewhere, you’re sure you can find them if you look a few places, and you hope to find something for your loved ones–and if the ones to your brother or sister are late, well, so be it?

This year I’m so very pleased to have awakened this day after Thanksgiving, been thoroughly thankful to have no more cooking to do (and that my mother got the dishes finished), and actually excited to plan Christmas decorating. Then I received an email telling me that the Southern Lit Lovers reading group on Goodreads had chosen my Christmas book, Miracle on I-40, for their December read. I’m tickled as I can be!

In celebration of this season of love and hope, I’m giving away 2 copies of Miracle On I-40 this week. Simply leave a comment on this post, or any post, to be entered in the random drawing. Giveaway ends on Friday, December 2.

Blessings, dear ones– and let the Christmas joy begin!

  4. I have been busy with Nano, so I haven’t started my shopping yet. Just finished today, so now I can clean the house, trim the tree, and READ! Loved this book, just as I love all your books and Southern lit in general. Working on one myself called Sissy and Miss Boo that my critique group loves. I aspire to be you, CurtissAnn, when I grow up. (lol–I’m 74 and if I haven’t grown up by now I guess I never will)

    • Kathleen– glad to have you in the drawing anyway. Laying your hands on a new copy of Miracle could be tricky, since it is out of print. I know there are used ones out there, though! Thanks for dropping in. Hugs, CurtissAnn

  8. Dear Curtis Ann,
    I became a lover of Southern literature, when as a young woman living near Cross Creek, Florida I came across the works of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. Admittedly, she was a transplant to the South, and from all accounts she did not appreciate being designated a ‘regional’ author; nonetheless, she accurately and beautifully portrayed rural southern life: no excuses, justifications, nor condemnation, with a pure, raw acceptance, I believe she came to feel for the locals that inspired her work. Since then, I’ve read many Southern authors, some considered wonderful, some unremarkable, but until I found your books, I hadn’t found that same quality of ‘acceptance’ that I saw in Miss Marjorie’s books.
    I love your writing, you present your characters with all of their foibles, idiosyncrasies and failings; they are so real, so ‘knowable’! Thank you, for bringing your special brand of Southern Literature into our lives!
    Thanksgiving Blessings to you and yours!
    Lilly

  10. Hello. I am a member of the southern lit lovers group and Miracle on I 40 will be my first read with the group. I’m very excited because I haven’t read it yet. I would be honored to win a copy. My book budget is very small and I am depending on the Library. They don’t have a copy right now.
    Can’t wait to read it and join in the discussion.
    Thanks, Lisa

  11. I would just like to say that Miracle on I 40 has been one of my favorites! Of course I have enjoyed every CurtissAnn book, but I could not put this one down. When I realized that I could not wash dishes one handed, I had a decision to make, and it was that the dishes could wait while I finished the book! Who ever wins this contest will be very lucky people. Blessings and Merry Christmas to all! Carolyn

    • Joyce– I came across a great quote the other day, one that made me think of how my attitude is a miracle: “To be alive, to be able to see, to walk, to have a home…friends– it’s all a miracle. I have adopted the technique of living life from miracle to miracle.” ~Arthur Rubenstein. I think adopting this technique can produce the miracle of joy.

      Hugs, CurtissAnn

  15. I nominated it because we haven’t read it as a group before and I enjoyed it so the first time I read it a few years ago, I thought it would be perfect for our December read! (My hardback copy sits year round on my favorites bookcase beside the mantle). Thanks you again for doing the giveaway! Good luck to Southern Lit Lovers & your blog readers alike :o)
