Contest - Win Murder at Eagle Summit!

Virginia Smith's latest mystery - one of her most suspenseful yet - is on store shelves this month. Our local Walmart only had two copies of Murder at Eagle Summit left the first week of the month, so hurry to get yours soon! You can also order from Amazon, CBD, and Barnes & Noble.

Ginny's giving away an autographed copy to one creative Pixel in a fun, new contest. But you have to work for it. :-)

In 100 words or less, in the comments section below, give us a description of SNOW. Ginny says, "The judging will be completely subjective --whichever one appeals to me the most. The appeal might be the beauty of the words. It might be the feeling the description evokes. It might be the vividness of the picture the description paints in my mind."

Leave your 100-words-or-less description of SNOW by Friday, April 24th, for your chance to win Murder at Eagle Summit.

About the book:

The classical trio from A Taste of Murder head west, to play at a wedding in Park City, Utah. A romantic ski resort seems the perfect place for a wedding. Until a murder on the slopes turns everyone on Eagle Summit into suspects. Liz Carmichael, the bride's cousin, saw a shadowy figure on a chair lift in the middle of the night. But was it the victim or the killer? Liz goes to the police -- and finds herself giving her report to her ex-fiance, Deputy Tim Richards. After a three-year estrangement, she could finally make things right with Tim. Unless the killer finds her first.

About the author:

Virginia Smith left her job as a corporate director to become a full time writer and speaker with the release of her first novel Just As I Am. Since then she has contracted ten novels and published numerous articles and short stories.

She writes contemporary humorous novels for the Christian market, including Murder by Mushroom, Stuck in the Middle, and her newest releases, A Taste of Murder and Age before Beauty.

In March of 2008 she was named "Writer of the Year" at Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. An energetic speaker, Virginia loves to exemplify God's truth by comparing real-life situations to well-known works of fiction, such as her popular talk, "Biblical Truths in Star Trek."

Snowflakes are formed when dust goes into the atmosphere and ice accumulates around it. Each snowflake is unique, though they all have six sides. If you put out your gloved hand and catch a snowflake it appears lacey. Catch a snowflake on your tongue and it is cold, but immediately melts. Snowflakes are white, cold and beautiful. They can be big or small. They can fall intermittently or thousands at a time. Snowflakes melt as they fall, or can accumulate and turn the world into an enchanted winter wonderland. Snowflakes are magical.

A snowflake is a picture of a Christian...
Snowflakes are unique, yet appear to look alike.
Christians are unique individuals, but are in the process of looking like Christ.
Snowflakes cover dirty streets with a white blanket reflecting the sun's light.
Christians cover a multitude of sins when they share Christ's love.
Snowflakes are pure refreshment on the tip of the tongue.
Christians bring refreshment as they encourage the weary and faint-hearted.
Snowflakes are fragile alone, but together can shut down a city.
Christians are vulnerable alone, but together, the Body of Christ prevails against the gates of hell!

The year was 1950 and we were out of school for Thanksgiving vacation,
The next mornign when we got out fo bed it was snowing, big beautiful flakes floating down from the sky. It snowed all day and that evening we had to get in extra buckets of coal for the fire place.
The weather report on the radio called for more snow and lots of it.
It snowed for days, every thing became a standstill, the roads were closed and the trains could not run
When you went outside the snow was so soparkling white it almost hurt your eyes.

Whoohoo! Snow! It didn’t stick to the ground, but it will soon. Can’t wait to ski and ride go snowmobiling. Winter is my favorite time of the year.

January 2
It snowed 10 inches today, perfect for a snowball fight. Our family battled bravely until the last woman (ME!!) was left standing. Hot cocoa for all afterward.

February 15
It snowed everyday for five weeks straight. Should’ve asked for a snow blower for Christmas.

March 22
More snow, again. Broke my shovel trying clear a path. When will this torture end? Whoever likes winter is nuts.

I'm so glad Ginny's judging this contest and not me!! Great entries, everyone!

Thanks for participating.

It's hard for me to think SNOW - it was 90 degrees here today!
