A Valentine’s Giveaway for You

By DiAnn Mills @DiAnnMills

When the signs of Valentine’s Day took over the retail scenery, from candy and cards to exquisite dinners, I thought about how much I value my relationship with you.

I hear from many of you daily, and the encouragement boosts my confidence. You—

  • Comment on my blog.
  • Contact me through my website with e-mails that seal our friendship.
  • Read my books and write amazing reviews.
  • Offer suggestions for book titles and character names.
  • Follow me on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Accept my invitations to meet me at book signings and speaking events.
  • Provide story ideas.
  • And so much more!

Thank you! I love hearing from you!

Tyndale’s E-BookExtra is offering best sellers with e-book specials. Take a look here at the great deals! Deadly Encounter is being offerred for only $2.99 until February 12th.

The following is my way of offering you something special. Every person who is subscribed to my blog will be entered in a random drawing to receive a heart-shaped box of delicious chocolates at my favorite local store: Copper Kettle Chocolate Factory. I’ll be drawing for two boxes of chocolates. Encourage your friends to subscribe. Both of you could be winners!

I’ll be selecting two recipients on Wednesday, February 8 at 1:00 CST to ensure the candy is delivered by Valentine’s Day.

Have you made Valentine’s Day plans?

    Hi DiAnn,

    I enjoyed your post so much. Thanks! My oldest granddaughter’s “golden birthday” is this year–on Valentine’s Day. We’re brainstorming how to incorporate “14”…gifts…lots of thought going into this one! Blessings and hugs to you!

    Thanks for the giveaway. I look forward to each book as it comes out. Thanks also for the encouragement and mentoring. I hope the info I give you helps.

    Oh well. At least I’m now connected with you on facebook and twitter (I can’t believe I wasn’t already connected on facebook). Anyway, I know this will come as a tremendous shock, but I’m not really a fan of chocolates. However, being the idea person that I am, I will still share any story ideas and character names with you when they strike. 🙂

    No plans. I want to hit the stores to buy Valentine’s Day wrapping paper etc (they’re pretty and I like to use them Year round) but I’ll probably do that after to get a better deal

  11. Beverly Duell-Moore

    I don’t usually do anything. I’m not married so there’s no reason to do anything. I do send my grandniece a card with balloons and stickers in it.
    I love your books!

  12. Charline Bonham

    We sometimes go out to lunch around Valentines day but don’t buy gifts. We are retired and together all the time so every day is special. We do like to eat out but go easy on the candy to control weight and other health issues. We’ve been married 52 years.
    Happy Valentines to you.

  13. Margie D Coats

    We don’t really do anything special. We’ll probably go out to eat and may go to a movie that we’ve been wanting to see.

    Happy Valentine’s Day from NC. I am a long time subscriber to your blog. I will always cherish you as a friend because you were the first person to encourage me in my writing journey–at BRMCWC in 2007.

    You are a sweetie, DiAnn! The name of that candy store sounds like something from a romance novel (Copper Kettle Chocolate Factory). 🙂
    No special plans on Valentine’s Day itself, but the following day I’m taking an elderly friend for her oncologist appointment. This precious widowed lady has become one of my dearest friends (she reminds me she’s old enough to be my mother, but that is fine!). I am planning to make the day special for her because after her appointment I plan to pick up a special lunch, then visit with her at her home that afternoon.
    Thank you for all of your blog posts and so many ways you reach out to readers and fellow writers. 🙂

    What a wonderful idea: chocolate! I’m absolutely certain one of the rooms in my Heavenly mansion is filled with chocolates of all kinds. It won’t make me fat(ter), won’t break me out…because it’s Heaven.

    You are such an incredible, Godly woman, DiAnn. You give so much back to your readers. We appreciate your kindness, thoughtfulness, consideration. We’re merely returning what you give us.

    Love and Hugs!!

    Thanks for the giveaway and Happy Valentine’s Day to you. I don’t have a spouse so probably will not get anything unless I buy it myself, ( which isn’t a bad thing) in my opinion.

    Already pre order book. Thanks for chance at chocolates. This year will be interesting. Jerry finished his working years at kroger, the last eight to get ins till I turn 65. He has been grabbing last thing left for eight years. This time not there. Oh what will he do?

  23. Jan Hall

    I won’t be receiving chocolates from my hubby this year. I will spend the day down on the dock remembering our time together and will probably go out to the cemetery.

  24. Phyllis

    My plans for Valentine’s Day is to have a “date” with my 5 year old great nephew so that my niece and her hubby can have much needed time alone, to enjoy a meal out at a restaurant that doesn’t have a kids menu! It is hard to have a romantic evening with a very active and curious little boy in the house. I intend to pick up my nephew after school. Then we will eat pizza for dinner, followed by an early bath, and then a movie before bedtime. Perfect date night for a little boy!

  25. Barbara Hackel

    I think Valentine’s day is one of the best holidays ever. You get to tell people how much you care and appreciate them. If you are really lucky you are given candy or something sweet.
    I have been keeping a bag of Hershey kisses in my purse wherever I go. When I see a beautiful smile or hear a kind comment, I love giving the person a little sweet kiss. When I see someone who looks sad or down, I give them a candy kiss in place of the real thing, just to let them know others care!
    I LOVE Valentine’s day! Have a wonderful one DiAnn!

  26. Lisa Sabatini

    Thanks for the contest! For Valentine’s Day, my husband and I plan to treat his recently widowed 89 year old mother to a day of fun. She loves the casino, so, penny machines here I come! LOL! Maybe we will find a machine with a I’ve theme. ?

  27. Karen Krack

    Love chocolate – the darker, the better! Thanks for the opportunity. Since our anniversary is the end of January (just hit 41), we kind of low key Valentine’s Day. Hope you have a great one!

  28. Connie Fischer

    I love the library you have above. It is just adorable and beckons me to sit and read a book!

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you, DiAnn!
