Caroline Shelter and Soar Giveaway!

April 21, 2020

Get ready for the second Shelter and Soar Giveaway! This time we want to help parents or grandparents with youngsters at home. 

As the author of twenty-five children’s books, I know how important it is that young readers are able to soar to a distant time and place — while staying safe at home.

That’s why this time I am giving away books about Caroline, the character I created for American Girl. Three winners will each receive signed and personalized, softcover copies of Captain of the Ship and Facing the Enemy. Together, these two books contain the original six stories about Caroline.

The time to enter is now! Just leave a comment below by 11:59 PM (Central US time), this Wednesday, April 22, 2020. One entry per person, please.

The three randomly selected winners will be announced the next day here and on my Facebook Author Page.

Mr. Ernst and I planned these giveaways as a gesture of support for readers during such difficult days. Your enthusiastic response to the first one lifted our spirits tenfold. Be safe, and happy reading!
