Giveaway & HEA Interview!

Happy September everyone! I hope those of you in the U.S. and Canada had a great Labor Day weekend. Today marks the first day of school in my area and fellow Harlequin Heartwarming author Catherine Lanigan and I are blogging together at the Heartwarming blog and giving away a gift bag designed for kicking back and relaxing with a book and a cup of tea (see pic ;).

The gift bag giveaway includes:

Autographed copies of Catherine Lanigan’s Love Shadows and Heart’s Desire
Autographed copy of Rula Sinara’s The Promise of Rain with matching bookmark

A canvas tote bag, approx 15x15in, (great for lunches, books, groceries & more) imprinted with the cover of The Promise of Rain

A 16 oz, BPA free, Stainless Steel Contigo Travel Tumbler

Teatulia Black Tea, Organic and Rainforest Alliance Certified

A custom ‘Sweet and Heartwarming’ bracelet from the Harlequin Heartwarming authors and…

A ‘Think Harlequin’ button pin

(Please note: The gift bag drawing is open only to entries from U.S. or Canadian residents. One winner will be chosen by random drawing. All other entries (international) will be placed in a drawing for an e-book copy each of Love Shadows, Heart’s Desire and The Promise of Rain.)

All you have to do to enter is hop on over to the Heartwarming blog and leave a comment. Pretty cool, huh?

Oh, and one more link...

My latest USA Today HEA interview is up! It's with Harlequin Superromance author Claire McEwen and she shares her personal experience growing up with an alcoholic parent. Please check it out HERE!

Have a great day!


  1. What a generous offer.
    Growing up with an alcoholic parent? Memories I would like to expell.
    A great day to you too.

    1. It's terrible for anyone to have to deal with those memories. I can't blame you at all. I do hope that anyone out there still in the middle of it all, can find hope in Claire's personal story and in her characters...or a perspective for understanding someone they know who is dealing with an alcoholic.

      BTW, I was reminded of your beautiful photos this weekend, when I was taking pics down in these caverns we visited (Luray Caverns). Really spectacular. I'll have to post some soon!

  2. Hi Rula!

    Great giveaways! Going now...

  3. My kids also went back to school on Tuesday. Yes, I did a lot of happy dancing. :)

    1. Can't blame you, Stina! But I tell you, all this back-to-school stuff parents have to do (paperwork, open houses, forms etc...) is exhausting!

  4. I missed the giveaway- but wow! What a giveaway. :)

    1. Sorry you missed it, but thanks for stopping by!
