Merry Christmas! Welcome to the first blog in this Christmas Round-Robin!
Here’s how it works: At each author’s blog post, you will find a question that can be answered by checking out the free Amazon preview of their book. Provide the answer at this Google Form. Note: You must answer the questions for every author in the round -robin to be considered to win the $300 first place, $150 second place or $75 third place Amazon gift cards. At the end of my post is a link to the next blog, who will provide a link to the next blog, etc., to the very end.
I’m thrilled to get the chance to tell you about my book Christmas Star Sapphire. This book is in the second generation of my fan-favorite series, The Jewel Series, but you can read it without having read the rest of the series.
Joe Westcott is a Cru minister at an Alabama university where Madeline Viscolli is getting her Masters degree. Joe has a personal rule against dating any student, for any reason, but his attraction to Madeline makes him start to reconsider that hard and fast rule. Until he discovers that Madeline is not just a Viscolli, but is one of THE Viscollis.
Long ago, Joe made a decision to serve God well removed from his family’s life of wealth and luxury. Madeline represents everything he left behind.
It was a joy to write this book and delve into these characters. To date, it is one of my favorite books I’ve written. My husband’s cousin is a Cru minister, and it is our pleasure to donate a portion of every sale to Cru ministries. As parents of a college senior, we know how vital campus ministeries are to the students that attend colleges all over the world.
Let’s begin this scavenger hunt! Go to the book on Amazon at this link.
Find the answer to this question:
What is the name of Joe’s boat?
When you have the answer, fill out this form and head on to the next blog!
Thank you so much for visiting! The next author on the tour is Carrie Turansky, who is telling us all about her Christmas book Snowflake Sweethearts. You can find it at this link. Remember that the round-robin will end on December 16th at 11:59 PM EST!
Thank you for this incredible chance!
I’m excited about it!
This is kind of frustrating. In order to enter you must answer the question correctly, but the name of Joe’s boat is nowhere on the Amazon page. To find the answer, you have to actually purchase the book. If this is the case for all of these questions, it would cost more to enter the contest than the prizes are worth.
Joellen, you can get a sneak peek inside the pages of the book when you click on “Look Inside” on Amazon. You will find the answers in the excerpt 🙂 No need to buy the book, I hope this helps!
If you click the book’s cover on the Amazon page, it will open the “Look Inside” review feature and let you see the first 10% of the book.
This took some time but was a fun way to discover books that need to be read! Thanks for the opportunity!
You’re welcome! Glad you had fun!
What an opportunity! Thanks!
Thank you took a bit of time but I enjoyed reading the samples ❤️
I’m so happy you enjoyed it!
Thank you. A delightful brain using activity to keep this retiree on her toes. Enjoyed discovering new authors and being reacquainted with stories already read. Happy Holidays and thanks for the opportunity to win a substantial Amazon gift card. Happy Holidays.
Happy holidays to you, too!
Do you know if you get a confirmation email when you fill out the scavenger hunt form? My computer went all funny on me, so I’m not sure it went through … but I also don’t want to be disqualified for entering twice… ?
You won’t get a confirmation, but I do see your entry. It’s all there.

Thanks for this opportunity. Did it yesterday. Took quite a while but got it done 🙂
I’m happy you got it done!
This was SO much fun, and I discovered new authors, too. Looking forward to reading their stories. It took less time than I expected to find all the answers. Thanks for this opportunity!
Wonderful! I’m so glad you had fun!
Echoing Kelsey’s concern above, I’m wondering if my submission was accepted. After pressing the submit tab, there was an option to submit another answer, and I pressed it, mistakenly thinking that was where to leave a comment. I’d like to resubmit my answers if they didn’t go through. Again, it was a delightful exercise in discovering new authors.
I see your entry and everything went through!
can you check and see if mine went thru?? i saw the above post but wanted to make sure it went thru before i shut the page down.
I do not see an entry under your name or your email.
ok what do i do…….i have the page still up but when i go down to the submit button it will not let me click on it
Every answer is mandatory – including name and email. If you have the form filled out entirely and didn’t miss anything, I’d suggest copying everything down, then refreshing and inputting it again or trying a different browser. Make sure you pull all of the questions, first, so you don’t lose your hard work!
i will do it when i get back this afternoon……good thing i wrote it all down….
Ok this time it said my response has been recorded….Thanks for letting me know that you had not gotten it the first time.
Took me forever to do this hunt but Yay I did it!
There was some great books there! Thank you for this chance❤
After reading some concerns, I don’t know if mine went through.
It is 11:26 pm and i just finished! Thank you for all the fun !!! Can’t wait to see who wins!!!
