Blue Sky Days Anniversary Celebration Day 1

This week is the one-year publication anniversary of my debut novel, Blue Sky Days. It’s been a crazy, amazing, whirlwind year, and to celebrate and thank all of you for your support, I’m doing 4 days of giveaways, plus lowering the price of Blue Sky Days to 99 cents until Friday!

Don't have a Kindle but want to take advantage of the sale? You still can! Simply go to Smashwords and check out with the coupon code JZ94A and you can download the book for 99 cents in the format of your choice.  

A year after graduating from high school, nineteen-year-old Emma Ward feels lost. She has spent most of her life trying to please her frigid, miserable mother - studying hard, getting good grades, avoiding the whole teenage rebellion thing - and now she feels she has no identity beyond that. Because she spent so many years working hard and planning every moment of her life, she doesn't have any friends, has never had a boyfriend, and basically doesn't know who she is or what she really wants from life.
Working two part-time jobs to save money for college hasn't helped her make decisions about her future, so she decides it's time for a change. She leaves home to live with her free-spirited, slightly eccentric Aunt Daisy in a small town that makes Emma feel like she's stepped back in time.
When Emma meets Nicholas Shaw, everything changes - he's unlike anyone she's ever met before, the kind of guy she didn't even know existed in the 21st century. Carefree and spirited like Daisy, Nicholas teaches Emma to appreciate life, the beauty around her, and to just let go and live. Between Daisy and Nicholas, Emma feels like she belongs somewhere for the first time in her life, and realizes that you don't always need a plan - sometimes life steers you where you're meant to be.
Life is wonderful, an endless string of blue sky days, until Nicholas is diagnosed with cancer, and life changes once again for Emma in ways she never thought possible. Now it's time for her to help Nicholas the way he's helped her. Emma will have to use her newfound strength, and discover along the way if love really is enough to get you through.


Today's giveaway is for a book of the winner's choice up to $12 CAD from The Book Depository. I decided to let the winner choose rather than choose a bunch for you to pick from, but if you're looking for suggestions, I have a ton! ;-)

This giveaway is open internationally as long as The Book Depository ships to your location. The only mandatory entry for the giveaway is to follow Ramblings of a Daydreamer - the rest are just extra chances for you to win and you don't have to do any of them if you don't want to.
