This contest is open to anyone who would like to enter and support debut author Gina Holmes. I’ve had Gina as a guest on my blog this year, but in case you haven’t heard about, or read Crossing Oceans, here is the book trailer.
Gina is kicking off a virtual book launch this week and as a result she has planned a lot of cool things for readers. For one very fortunate winner, Gina will be giving away a strand of luxurious 48” hand-knotted cultured fresh water pearls. There are many ways to enter the contest and you can find the details at Novel Journey.
