12 Months of Giveaways – February

Happy Valentine’s Week! I figured I’d time this month’s giveaway with the big *heart* day, for double the fun! Don’t expect the giveaway next month to be green or relating to leprechauns 😉


Having said that, this month’s giveaway does have to do with love! Crazy love, to be exact. For those of you familiar with evangelist and pastor Francis Chan, then you’ve probably heard of this book. Our Small Group at church actually worked through the video series (also presented by Chan), which was fantastic and highly recommended. Read below for more info on the awesome message Pastor Chan passes along in this book!

(Here’s a pic of the Jams you’ll win – they’re called Turple Ombre. Totally, fun, right?)

Jamberry Nails are nail “shields” that adhere to your natural fingernails or acrylics and are a simpler, more cost effective way to keep your hands manicured. They can be applied in less than fifteen minutes at home and can last up to two weeks on nails and up to six weeks on toes. With this DIY at-home application set of nail wraps, you will get 2-4 manicures and pedicures that will not chip or smudge. Choose from over 300 patterns and colors, there’s no drying time, and there are no harsh chemicals. They make it easy to make your nails look amazing, for much cheaper than salon manicures!

12 Days of Giveaways – Day 1

‘On the first day of Caffeinated-Fiction’s-blog-giveaway my true love gave to me…’ Hrmmm… well, maybe it doesn’t flow so well. But I’m so excited to say ‘The 12 Days of Giveaways’ is finally here!

Let’s get this party started! The giveaway today is:

Jennifer Holm’s New York Times bestselling, Newbery Honor Winner, and signed copy of ‘Penny from Heaven’!

This middle grade book tells the story of a summer of adventures and secrets that will change everything, at a time in America’s history, just after World War II, when being Italian-American meant confronting prejudice because you’d been the enemy not that long ago .

It’s 1953 and 11-year-old Penny dreams of a summer of butter pecan ice cream, swimming, and baseball. But nothing’s that easy in Penny’s family. For starters, she can’t go swimming because her mother’s afraid she’ll catch polio at the pool. To make matters worse, her dog, Scarlett O’Hara, is sick. Her favorite uncle is living in a car. Her best friend is turning into a criminal. And no one will tell Penny the truth about how her father died.  Continue reading

I thought I’d celebrate with all of you by making all of the novellas in my “Now I Sleep” series free until Sunday! The first book is always free on Smashwords, iBooks, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and other fine retailers. (Sorry, Amazon has a thing about not making books free.)

As always, they have 8 different formats in which you can download the book, so you can read it on whichever reader you may own! (Hint: Mobi format is for Kindle)

P.S. Notice the fun Easter Eggs that are hidden on the cover of each one. As you read, look for the clues that relate to that object! 😉

Synopsis: Delylah and Sadie – two teenage girls that have nothing in common, yet share a connection that spans space and time. When their worlds collide, what will it mean for them? Will they discover the truth of who they really are? Only one will survive to face the future. This story is told through the course of 6 novellas. YA, Fantasy, Sci-Fi.
