The Book Babe Spotlight: Author Janette Rallison--With a giveaway!

Those of you who've been following my blog for a bit already know how much I adore my fabulously amazing friend Faith, a.k.a. the Book Babe.


And in addition to her being the most amazing mentor and cheerleader EVER--and offering incredible editing services--she is also an AWESOME source for book recommendations. In fact, I discovered several of my favorite authors because of Faith--and nothing makes me happier than one of her gushy emails telling me about a book I HAVE to read. (She seriously has impeccable taste).

So Faith has agreed to occasionally put together spotlights on some of her favorite authors for me to post for you guys, so she can tell you herself why you need to discover these incredible authors.

And so, without further ado, I give you The Book Babe:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Presenting: The One and Only, the Amazing Janette Rallison!

Ok, so I realize that this title might be a bit ostentatious. But, Janette deserves all that praise and more!

I often get a chance to talk to writers, both published and unpublished, about the career of being an author. And every time I do, I mention Janette. She is an example of the BEST type of author. One who is still writing and getting published after 17 years. She has 19 published with 2 more due out this year! Pretty amazing.

I realize that she is not the only author who has been writing that long, she is merely one of my favorites!

All her books are fun, quick reads, perfect for anyone who likes to read romantic comedies.

Except for SLAYERS, which is written under the pseudonym C.J.Hill. SLAYERS is a straight up fantasy about dragon hunting. It is FANTASTIC, and my second favorite Janette Rallison book. MY DOUBLE LIFE is my all-time favorite of hers, and not just because I make the briefest of cameos as a teacher... :)

Every single one of her books will fit perfectly in any school library. Or any personal library. They are entertaining enough for high school and clean enough for elementary school.

If you like to read fun, well written books you can't go wrong with any of her novels. And you can find a list of all of her amazing titles HERE.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And because Faith is amazing, and wants to make it as easy as possible for you guys to discover Janette's books, she's donated some copies for me to give away--AND THEY'RE SIGNED! One lucky winner will receive three--yes THREE awesome Janette Rallison books: IT'S A MALL WORLD AFTER ALL, MY FAIR GODMOTHER, and HOW TO TAKE THE EX OUT OF EX-BOYFRIEND.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 pm PST on Saturday, March 10th. I'll draw one random winner and post their name on Sunday, March 11th. International entries welcome. I also *recommend* you follow my blog/feed in some way/shape/form--not because I'm trying to make you my minion, but because I don't have time to email winners, so if you miss when I post your name and never contact me, I give your prize to someone else. Up to you!
