in Culture

Congrats to Ann (@annhepburn) for winning the giveaway!

This has been a wonderful week so far, and it started off with a great radio show featuring author Arthur Wooten on Monday morning.

(Side note: Now that bizchickchat live is happening and is airing on Monday mornings at 9:30 PT/12:30 ET, I have a feeling my Mondays are going to be great!)

Book Giveaway

Birthday Pie cover

Do you like free stuff? I know that I do! It always amazes me that people don’t take more advantage of things that are given free of charge, especially when times are tough financially! But I’m digressing…

Arthur has graciously offered to give away a copy of his novel, Birthday Pie! I’m nearly finished with this book and I am telling you that it is GREAT. When you read this book, you will snuggle up with it before bedtime, and then laugh, cry, and think about your own family. It’s a wonderful novel. If you did not get a chance to hear my interview with Arthur about Birthday Pie, go have a listen! It’s on BlogTalkRadio and you can listen at any time. You can even skip ahead to about the 17 minute mark to where the interview really starts. :)
