THE DAY YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR HAS ARRIVED.
I promised you a giveaway of this delightful book, and today, I DELIVER.
If you missed this blog post in which I (metaphorically) lit some sparklers and did an interpretive dance about my love for this hilarious and touching collection of southern stories, well, ALLOW ME TO REMIND YOU what this book is all about and why I’m singing its praises from the rooftops.
First, there’s this blurb from THE PIONEER WOMAN (yes, from Food Network, they are ONE AND THE SAME):
“Well, it’s official: I’m in love with this book. Sophie Hudson is hilariously appreciative of her very Southern roots, and she shares tales of all the experiences (and the lovably eccentric relatives!) that shaped her. Threads of love, family, and faith hold the stories together, but it’s Sophie’s laugh-at-life humor that sings forth from every page. She writes as if you’re sitting on her front porch drinking a tall glass of sweet tea, and it’s impossible not to come away from each chapter without feeling like you know her a little better. I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun reading a book.”
–Ree Drummond, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks
Secondly, there’s the book trailer, which I can’t stop watching mostly because I just love to hear Sophie talk:
And thirdly, there is a story in this book entitled “The Night We Neither Camped Nor Fished” that about had me peeing my pants. (Which is kind of appropriate, considering the humorous bodily functions that feature in that particular anecdote.)
Oh, and here’s Sophie.
I loved this book so much I bought an extra copy at Sophie’s release party and made her sign it so I could give it away to one lucky Anne Riley Books grasshopper.
If you would like to win a signed paperback of A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet, please throw your name in the Rafflecopter below. As always, there are several opportunities to get more than one entry! (Sophie didn’t ask me to put any of those there; in fact, she’ll probably be embarrassed when she sees them because she will feel like she’s imposing herself on you.) (Even though I’ve assured her this is not the case.)
SO. Here we go. U.S. Residents only, please, and it ends on Friday the 21st. Oh, and one more thing: this book does deal a lot with faith in God (Sophie is a Christian, like me), so if that is not your particular cup of tea, you won’t hurt anyone’s feelings by not entering.
Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor…
