Skip a Starbucks Day for Johanna Faith

I love writing. I enjoy attending writers’ conferences and groups to study the craft of writing. And I like the free book giveaways, too. But the biggest blessing of my writing journey is the friends I’ve made. One of those friends is C.J. Redwine. Today on the blog I’m asking you to join me in helping C.J. bring her adopted daughter home from China. To read more about the Redwine’s adoption story and to help bring Johannah Faith home, please click here today through Wednesday, August 25.


Please leave a comment on this blog before clicking through to donate at C.J.’s site and one of you will win a Percy Jackson Prize Pack! This includes Percy Jackson and the Olympians 3 Volume Boxed Set (paperback edition) and Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief DVD.


Thank you for participating.

I donated to CJ's adoption fund, and linked in twitter as well as on my blog.
My dad's business partner has adopted two girls from China, separately. The process is grueling and expensive- but so worth it if you can make it happen.
Thanks for the fab giveaway!
