Celebrate: Release Day!

** Weds. May 8th, 9:10 AM: Because of the large number of entries (party goers!), I've decided to give away FIVE signed copies of Rescue Team!
CONGRATULATIONS to our winners (chosen via Random.Org): 
KAREN S. (Ohio), JENNIFER KING, AMY mm, MARYANN F, AND JANET E. !!
And thank you ALL for helping me to celebrate!
----------------------------


Wheeee!  Today is the official release day for RESCUE TEAM !
We have balloons . . .

 Cyber-cake (all the taste, no pesky calories) . . .


And champagne--watch out for that cork!

Though many book sites (Amazon, B&N, Christian Book, and more) began shipping Rescue Team early, I think it's fun to have an offical celebration here, now. And because YOU, dear readers, are the reason there continue to be books to release, I want to thank you by offering a three book giveaway!  Simply leave a comment below (including your e-mail address) and  your name will be entered for a chance to win one of three signed copies of Rescue Team.

I'll select names (via Random.Org) on Wednesday May 8th and send e-mails to the winners.




Meanwhile, have some cake, grab a handful of confetti, and help me celebrate: Rescue Team is born!

Congrats on the release - it's kinda like delivering a baby, isn't it? Your creation released to the world. Always exciting! I just had a slice of apple pie to share in the celebration. :)

I have been checking the library daily to see if they have your book listed yet with no success. Hopefully, now that it is actually published I will see it soon. I have read your previous books so know that this one will definitely be worth the wait.

deb said...

congratulations on all your books! You are a great writer and person that I'm getting to know better even tho it's thru FB. It's great to see a fellow medical professional doing what I've always wanted to do.... write books. Let's party! Deb

No champagne, thank you....but I would love to win a copy of your new book!

CandaceCalvert said...


So glad to see more of you arriving at the party--yes, that's me, frosting another cake. Okay, yes, and licking the beaters; at least I turned them off first, this time!
Seriously, THANKS y'all for helping me celebrate. I feel so blessed to team with Tyndale House to offer these stories of hope, and especially to be sharing them with YOU. Now . . . There's sparkling cider right over here. And will someone please catch the helium balloon that's headed for the doorway? Yes, the blue one with the Rescue Team hero's face printed on both sides. Let's party!

Bethany said...
