a thank you giveaway

We are well into June now, but I’m still smiling from a whirlwind release month. Thank you so much to everyone who has stepped into Cooper and Sloane’s world and helped spread the word about their story — AND Nick and Chelsea’s, for that matter!

I wish I could bake everyone Sloane’s toffee chocolate chip cookies for their love and support, but I do have a few things to give away.

In honor of Sloane’s spreadsheet-loving ways and the fact that Chelsea from That’s When I Knew runs a planner business, our grand prize is a set of undated, six-month Cultivate What Matters Powersheets, a signed paperback of With No Reservations, and an electronic copy of the Love at First Laugh novella collection featuring That’s When I Knew. You can keep it for yourself or pay it forward to a friend.

If you’ve followed me on social media for any length of time, you know how much I love my Powersheets. They’re not a planner but a set of worksheets that help you identify your goals at the beginning, sort through what’s working and not working for you in your efforts, and include a section for each month to prioritize and create action steps so you can make progress. I have used them to motivate myself to go to the gym more, reach writing goals, form new habits, and be more intentional about my YESes and NOs.

They promote progress not perfection, designed to be messy and meaningful. Right now, they’re sold out until next year, but I snagged a teal set because I’d love to help one of my friends reach his/her goals in the second half of 2017. Three other winners will get copies of my sisters’ novels, Then There Was You by Kara Isaac, the Of Rags and Riches historical romance collection featuring my sisters Anne Love and Jaime Jo Wright, and Sarah Varland’s latest romantic suspense, Perilous Homecoming.

(ETA: Giveaway closed and winners have been notified!)

To enter, comment telling us what dream or habit you would use the Powersheets for. (Or if you just want some books!)

For additional entries, you can leave separate comments telling me if you have:

Thank you so much, y’all! I’m convinced I have the best friends and readers <3 While I can’t bake cookies for everyone, you can find Sloane’s cookie recipe and more by downloading this free PDF! Bon appetit!

    I am a dreamer and love setting goals but am not very good at writing them down. I have a small business I’m trying to launch and writing things down would be immensely helpful to that end. I’ve been so curious about the powersheets!

    Well, I haven’t ever seen powersheets in person, so I need to take a closer look at them. I would like to track the books I read in one year. There are other areas in my life that could stand to get more organized – including organizing/simplifying my clutter. And yes, I would just love to win books, regardless. 🙂 There’s nothing quite like getting a book in the mail to offset all the bills.

    Oh my goodness! I just heard about these yesterday and have been enthralled! Where was this 30 years ago? I absolutely love the idea of cultivating our life, our dreams, our relationships. My word for this year is Thrive and it really meshes well with the whole cultivate theme.

    I would use them to help focus my “thriving” on writing (need those goals to keep me on the path! It’s hard getting back into it!), on my new eating plan (I want to be healthy and enjoy all this thriving), and my relationships (staying in touch with friends while working outside the home AND writing is difficult.).
    So that’s what I would use it for. 😉

    I follow you on Instagram. I already like your FB page. I got your newsletter. And while I haven’t posted a review yet, I WILL. I am 2/3’s through the novella collection and am almost to YOURS. And I have your LI book and will read it next. 😉

    Whew…not sure why my comment is soooo much longer than everyone else’s.

    As for those awesome power sheets….I need to get into shape and lost some weight. It’s a struggle for me. Need some motivation. I checked into those when I first saw you talk about them quite awhile ago, but haven’t quite made the plunge yet. Maybe now is the time!!!
