The Twelve Days of GIveaways - Day Eleven: Frances Hoelsema
My Christmas Gift to You!
For those of you not familiar with who I am or my work, I am
Frances Hoelsema. I am a wife and work-at-home/homeschooling mom of two boys
that has a passion for writing. A few years ago, after I had gotten a Kindle
and started reading all kinds of different books, I had the bright idea to
write my own novel. This wasn't the first time I got an itch to write
something, it was just the first time I did something about it.
My favorite type of book to read is romance, the kind that
has a happy ending and makes you feel good about love. And that's exactly what
my debut novel, Growing Up Neighbors, does.
Here's a blurb: Little Deborah Harrington stared across the
street the day the Michaels family moved in. Who was this family? Would she
even like them? Nicholas Michaels hated the fact he had to move away from
everything and everyone in his life, but his feelings change when he meets the
Harringtons. Deborah and Nicholas become the best of friends, and as the
children grow up, their friendship deepens. But then tragedy strikes. Will this
cause them to part ways? Or will it perhaps make them realize they may have
stronger feelings for one another before it's too late? Growing Up Neighbors will embark you on a journey through
various life experiences; the final destination is discovering love.
Christmas is my favorite time of year, and anyone who knows
me knows I love to give. So my gift to you this Christmas is a chance to win an
autographed paperback copy of Growing Up Neighbors.
