He Belongs to Me

Catherine Boyd will do anything to regain custody of her young son... even reconcile with the husband accused of killing their son’s twin.

Catherine graduates from college, eager to start a new life with her six-year-old son, Drew. But when she tries to bring him home, her parents refuse to relinquish control of the grandson they’d raised.

Wrongly accused of a horrible crime, Thomas Boyd has buried himself in his career, determined to forget his painful past and the family he lost. But now, five years later, Catherine is back, requesting his help to regain custody of their son—custody he thought she had.

Though older and wiser, when courtroom battles reveal lies and secrets and generations of pain, will Thomas and Catherine find only more tragedy and loss, or will old wounds finally heal?

 About the Giveaway
On the first weekday of every month, a new contest/giveaway will begin, and every month the process is simple. I call it the "Books & Benches Contest." Basically you share or talk about your favorite books and/or reading spots.

A new author is featured every month, all month long through December 2014. 

SEPTEMBER - Kaki Warner
OCTOBER -  Regan Walker
NOVEMBER - Caroline Clemmons
DECEMBER - multiple authors

It really is a simple contest, but I can be long-winded, hence all the words. 

You can enter in one of three ways, but please enter your info on THIS FORM, so that we can easily add you to the drawing. The form is also located below. 

It's really this easy. 
Commment on the blog/featured post about your favorite book or reading spot, and tell us why you love it. 

If you want to do more . . . 
  1. Share a picture of your favorite bench or reading spot (or one you really like) on my or the featured author's Facebook page with the caption "Books & Benches Contest." You may also share one on your Facebook page with a link back to this post. 
  2. Click here to send me an EMAIL with the subject line "Books & Benches Contest," and include a picture of your favorite bench or reading spot. Only choose this option if you'd like to see your photo shared in a blog post at the end of the month.
At the end of each month, one winner will be drawn. The prizes will vary and may include gift cards, books, or other fun items. Winners are chosen randomly based upon entering, and not based upon the type of entry.

Just three easy rules for readers/entrants: 
  1. Only one entry per month, per person.
  2. Keep everything clean. 
  3. If you don't own a picture, or have the right to share it, please don't email it. If you do own it, by sending it you are giving me permission to possibly post it on this blog, citing you as the owner (name required). Photos shared on Facebook will be not shared on this blog.

NOTE: Someone who wins one month, will not be eligible to win for the next three months. This helps to ensure the contest remains fair for everyone. I will not be choosing the winners. That task is left to an automated computer sorter thing. 

ALSO NOTE: In the past, I've not been able to contact winners because there was no way to contact them and another winner had to be chosen. Please be sure to include your info on the form so this does not happen to you.
