Love at First Note Grand Prize Giveaway

It’s been a busy book launch month so far, but we’re not quite finished yet! And this next giveaway? It’s most my favorite ever. Love at First Note is a book all about music, so I wanted to pull together a collection of prizes that celebrate great music and the role it can play in our lives. (Also, great chocolate. It’s in the book, but even if it wasn’t, do we need an actual reason to celebrate great chocolate?)

2 lucky winners will receive the following:

  • One signed copy of Love at First Note
  • One signed copy of pianist, William Joseph‘s latest album, Be Still
  • One signed copy of violinist Aaron Ashton‘s latest album, Split the Difference
  • One original playlist of the songs and sounds of Love at First Note
  • One 6 piece box of Truffles of assorted flavors from French Broad Chocolates in Asheville, NC

So let’s talk about the prizes a little, yeah?

Love at First Note. Obviously, I’m a fan. Hopefully you don’t need me to give you a reason for why I included this one.

William Joseph’s Be Still. I’ve always loved William Joseph’s music, but just for the sake of the book, his style and approach to music is similar to what I imagined for Elliott when writing Love at First Note. (Elliott is more a cross between William Joseph and the Piano Guys… though William might take the edge in comparisons. I mean, he and Elliott have the same hair, and we all know how important THAT is.) The album included in the giveaway is a personal favorite. It’s a collection of hymns: my go-to “calm my soul and sooth my weary heart” music.

Aaron Ashton’s Split the Difference. Year’s ago, Aaron Ashton did some missionary work on my side of the country and got to know my family pretty well. He’s an incredibly talented and accomplished violinist and I love the music on this album. The back of the album reads . . . about that place between violin and fiddle. And it’s a really great place. To me, it sounds like my home. Like my mountains and the traditions and history that exist here. I’d love to know what it sounds like to you!

The original Love at First Note Playlist. To be fair, I couldn’t include ALL the classical music mentioned in the book. It would take four hours to do so. So I borrowed my sister’s brain and whittled it down to a sampling. I can’t stop listening to it myself. Such amazing music.

French Broad Chocolates. Emma and her sister, Ava, visit the French Broad Chocolate Lounge in the book–a place that is very real and very delicious. It’s my favorite date night hang out. Their truffle flavors are amazing and different and totally unexpected and I can’t wait to share.

So! You know you want to enter. There are lots of ways to do so thanks to Rafflecopter, including one, very free, very easy, very “you don’t have to share anything anywhere” way. (I do hope you will share, though. It matters.)

An “Out in the Wild” Photo Contest

So here’s the deal. I’m way out here in North Carolina where the closest LDS Bookstore is almost 5 hours away. I would LOVE to see a picture of my first born book out in the wild; in a bookstore, in your house, in the hands of someone reading it in the park. . .

SO… for the next four weeks, I’m hosting a little contest over on my Facebook Author Page. At the end of July, I’ll pick a one randomly selected winner from all the entries to receive a $40 Amazon E-gift Certificate and a signed copy of The House at Rose Creek.

FIRST, take a picture of The House at Rose Creek somewhere out in the wild. (Anywhere, really. Unless you’re in my living room. Then that totally doesn’t count.)

THEN, post that picture on my Facebook Author Page, which is a public page that you should absolutely “Like” if you haven’t already done so. You can find the page by searching for Jenny Proctor, Author, or by clicking on this Link:

Jenny’s Facebook Author Page

FINALLY, go and click on the little tab on my author page that says GIVEAWAY, and record your entries. They won’t count if you don’t record them; even if they did count,  I wouldn’t have a way to contact you (cause Facebook says I can’t use Facebook to say, Yo. You win the prize!).  SO, this is a very important step!

Here’s the link to the contest widget on my Facebook page:

(Also worth noting… there are several easy entries open to anyone, no photo required, so don’t miss out on those!)
