Like Family Stories? You'll Love This One About Sisters!

This week, we're honored to welcome once again Virginia Smith as our special guest. Ginny's on "blog tour" this week, promoting her wonderful new book Age Before Beauty, and we're giving away a copy with a fun new contest!

Age before Beauty, the 2nd book in the Sister-to-Sister series, is a sweet, heart-warming tale about one of three sisters. Book One in the series, Stuck in the Middle, followed the life of middle sister Joan, while Age before Beauty allows us a peek at older sister Allie, a new mom who wants to stay home with the baby. The characters become family, and you'll cheer for them, cry over them, and celebrate with them. And thankfully, Ginny has announced the title for the 3rd book, scheduled to release in February 2010 - Third Time's a Charm involves us in younger sister Tori's life. I can't WAIT!

About the Contest:

To enter: Submit to Tracy by e-mail a funny story, 200 words or less, about (1) being a new parent, (2) something that happened on the job, or (3) an incident with your mother-in-law. Entries will be posted as they arrive; deadline is Friday, February 20th, midnight. Winner will be selected in a random drawing from all qualifying entries and notified by e-mail. We'll announce the winner here at some point over the weekend. The winner will receive an autographed copy of Age before Beauty.

About the book:

Desperate to stay home with her baby, Allie Harrod launches a new career. Sure, she dropped out of Girl Scouts because she was lousy at cookie sales, but makeup is different, right? She'll do anything to make enough money to cover her share of the household bills, but how can she focus on her business when her list of problems is growing? None of her pre-baby clothes fit, her checking account is dwindling, and her mother-in-law has decided to move in! To top it off, her husband's attractive coworker suddenly needs his help every weekend. Middle sister Joan insists that God has the answers to all her problems, but Allie isn't so sure. Can she really trust him?

You can view a fun book trailer at Ginny's Web site.
