StuckinaGoodBookI want to be one of the first to welcome you to the Stuck in a Good Book Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader and Stuck in Books. Now, I can imagine what my loyal readers are thinking. “You’re actually posting early? You never do that.” Oh, dear reader, so very long ago, I used to post early. And then life happened, and I am usually running late. In addition to this, I often have to provide all of the prizes for the hop.

Well, God blessed me this time. It has been ages since an author agreed to provide a giveaway hop prize, but it just so happens a new author has agreed to just that. You might have noticed this recent review for Keep the Light by Myron Stenzel.

keep the lightFor my giveaway, one U.S. winner will win a signed paperback copy of the book as well as a $20 Walmart Gift Card. Take note–this is one of the best giveaways I’ve offered (thanks Myron! You’re the best!) in recent times for these giveaway hops, so you had better jump in and enter.

Now, of course, dear international readers, I didn’t forget about you. I am willing to offer you the book featured above as long as Book Depository or Fishpond ships to your country. (Yep, I’m providing this one because I didn’t want to leave my international friends out. Aren’t I nice?)

So be sure to enter on the rafflecopter below by 9 P.M. Pacific time on September 25. Oh, and please be sure to hop on to the other blogs participating in the hop for the opportunity to win even more books!
