Wow! I added the contest late in the giveaway and I did not think there would be so many military families and friends of military families playing!
I wish I had forty-four copies to give away–there were so many touching stories about military children who need some support and encouragement while their soldier is away! I would strongly encourage you to ask your local or post library to pick up a copy. If you are near or on an Army Base, Army Community Services and the unit Chaplains should also be able to order copies to share with families.
Also, I will have an interview with Sarah White, the author of Sammy’s Soldier, in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, check out her new MySpace for “Sammy’s Soldier”.
Without further ado, random.org chose: Margaret Herrin.
If I don’t hear from her by this Wednesday, I’ll select another winner. Thank you to everyone who entered. Hopefully you all won at least one Bloggy Giveaway.
ETA: Sarah White has also begun a wonderful blog, called “Healing Little Heroes,” on which she will share advice, tips, and information to help children of military families from her perspective as a trained counselor, mother of two, and wife of a former Marine. One of her first articles is about preparing children for a deployment. She was so touched by your interest in the book, she is giving away two more signed copies of Sammy’s Soldier on her blog this week.
If you didn’t win: If you would like to purchase a copy of your very own, Sammy’s Soldier is available on Amazon.
More Contests: Remember, I’m listing more awesome contests throughout the blogosophere on my Win It On Wednesday feature. Check it out for more chances to win.
More Military Family Bloggy Fun: Finally, I hope you’ll stick around to participate in my new Military Family Carnival (starts Monday) and consider Guest Posting on An Army Wife’s Life (all members of the Military family are welcome–you don’t have to have a blog to share and I will accept anonymous contributions)!
