This is just the beginning–I am so lucky the baby loss community has rallied around the novel Baby Dust. Something like ten more sites will be planning give aways in September and October.
Here are some places to go win copies in the next week or two:
Remembering Our Babies
Robyn is giving away FIVE signed copies on Aug. 26!
(And can I hug Robyn online–she told me how many preorders she’s taken and–WOW!)
Casey Shay Press
The publishing company is giving away a copy on Sept. 1, and international entries are okay there. They will ship a book to Australia or England or anywhere–I’m amazed at all the countries that are being super supportive of Baby Dust.
Goodreads is giving away five copies of Baby Dust between now and Sept. 15!
Go put your name in the hat! (And maybe become a fan? 🙂 I have four fans. Four AWESOME fans!!!
The Book Spot, an independent book store in Round Rock, has been the definition of awesome as we set up the book launch to coincide with Pregnancy Loss Remembrance Day. So mark your calendars:

7 p.m. Wave of Light Candlelighting
Deanna has hosted the annual candlelighting to coincide with the international wave of light for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day for many years.
We meet by the pond next to the lighted fountains behind the Long Center to light our candles from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in a silent memorial vigil. Park off Riverside Drive near Auditorium Shores or in the lot on Dawson Rd. (Map)
