Great Jewelry Giveaway Tuesday: The Shadows Are Falling!

Happy Tuesday Everybody,

The contest portion of this post is now closed. Please feel free to enjoy the rest of the post and check out the author and jewelry combo and be sure to visit Kathy at Beadmore Designs to see how to purchase her lovely jewelry she has for sale.

Congratulations to Susan M. for being Monday's Great Jewelry Giveaway winner of the SURREAL Set.

But, nobody fret...the week's not over and I have more authors who are sponsoring more jewelry that you can enter to win.

Today's contest prize is sponsored by C.C. Hunter, author of the fabulous Born At Midnight, which is book 1 in the Shadow Falls Series.  A little about the series:  Kylie thought her life was normal, until she ended up with some weird stalker soldier dude, a camp full of paranormal teenagers, and Kylie is faced with one heck of an identity crisis. Who is she? Does she have any special powers? And just who is that stalker anyway? Start your journey with Kylie in Born At Midnight.

In honor of Born At Midnight, C.C. Hunter commissioned Kathy of Beadmore Designs to make this stunning necklace and jewelry set, nicknamed ShadowFalls #1, to giveaway in tonight's drawing:

ShadowFalls #1 Necklace & Earring set

Born At Midnight by C.C. Hunter

You can enter to win this beautiful necklace and earrings set one of two ways (and either way is fine, it's just you have two options):

1.  You can comment with your name and email address in the comment section below. Be sure to use the words "shadow" AND "falls" somehow in a sentence (be creative!) But you must use those words and you must include your email address.

2.  If you don't want to post publicly, you can send me an email but you must give me at least a first name and you also must use the words "shadow" AND "falls" in a sentence (use your imagination!)

Entries must be sent to me either in the comment section or through email by 10 p.m. Central Time. I'll put the names into a container and draw one winner. That winner I'll notify by email and then announce who it is on here on Wednesday's post.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me.

Have A Thrilling Tuesday!

I loved reading the first Shadow Falls book! It was amazing! The necklace set is also very pretty!

As much rain FALLS down
The baby robins hatch warm
In the porch SHADOW

Thought I'd make a haiku out of what is going on here! Robins nested on my porch, just across from the seldom-used front door and across from the all-night light.The male eyes us suspiciously through the fan-shaped window at the top of the door; the female seems more trusting...they don't seem to mind the cats at the lower windows.
Most of the schools are closed do to flash flooding. We had snow in the air all Winter,(although it did not accumulate to much depth), now rain all Spring. Very unusual.


Safari Poet said...

Pretty! I'd enjoy wearing this without a shadow of doubt. I can just imagine how beautifully the necklace falls on the neckline :-)


Bethany said...

Jessica Bess,

C.C. will be so glad you enjoyed the book...clever way of using the words and saying how much you enjoyed it--sneaky, aren't you? LOL I've got you entered for tonight's drawing. Thank you for dropping by and don't be a stranger :-)

Bethany said...


Cute Haiku...very well done! Hope you enjoy the Robins--keep me updated on how they're doing. I've got you entered for tonight's drawing :-)

Bethany said...


Thank you for dropping by. Awesome way of incorporating the words! Don't be a stranger. I've got you entered for tonight's drawing :-)

My daughter adored this book. The moment I brought it home she slipped into the shadows and nothing could have distracted her, not even Niagra Falls!

My daughter will be so excited if I win this set. Thanks, CC, for a great book. (I started it but kiddo refused to give it back. *g*) Can't wait for the next one.

C.C. Hunter said...

Hey guys,

I just wanted to pop in and say thanks to Bethany and Kathy for the great promo idea. I love the necklace. I bought one for myself and wore it last week at my signing.


Bethany said...

Terri O.,

Very cleverly done! It's a great book and I'm excited about the next ones, myself. C.C. is one awesome writer, person, and friend. I've entered you in tonight's drawing. Thank you for dropping by and don't be a stranger :-)

Bethany said...


Thank YOU for all the support and encouragement! You rock!! :-)

Sandy said...

I'm so excited about getting my copy. I want to read it to see if it will be okay for my soon to be 12 year old great-niece.

Bethany said...


Are you entering the contest to win the jewelry? If so, you need to use the words "shadow" and "falls" in a sentence (or more than one) and provide me with an email address. Thank you for dropping by and don't be a stranger :-)

So Cool!!

Donna Marie Rogers said...

If any more rain falls in my area, I'm afraid my shadow is going to drown.

LOL...That was really dumb, but it's all I have, sorry. So tired of having a wet basement...

I already borrowed my copy of Shadow Falls to my nearly 12 year-old daughter, and I know she's going to love it. :-)

Bethany said...


As always, thank you for dropping by :-)

Bethany said...

Donna Marie,

I'm going to go ahead and use the email address listed on your profile. If that's not the one you want me to use as part of your entry, please contact me at bethany.averie@yahoo.com

Your sentence was fine LOL I thought it was cute. I'm putting your name in for tonight's drawing. Thank you for dropping by and don't be a stranger :-)

Donna Marie Rogers said...

Ack! Sorry Bethany, I plumb forgot. PaulCK1225@aol.com is my main email addy. Thanks so much!

Betty said...

Now would be a great time to read a book like this. It's the best time of year to sit outside and read, now that it's spring. I'm so happy it was cloudy on Feb 2nd when Phil came out of his hole, so he didn't get scared. If his shadow falls on the ground in front of him he runs away, and we get more winter.

Yupp..very badly done, but it's so freaking beautiful outside today, I had to find a way to mention spring in there somehow.

Diana said...

Thank you for the great giveaway!!! The necklace and earrings set are amazing.

A shadow falls every time when a light shines.

My shadow falls into bed with me in exhaustion, almost every night!

nutspan said...

Ok, so here I go with my sentence (I can't believe you are making me compose a sentence)....

As the darkness falls upon me, I can see my shadow.

I hate it when eye shadow falls and gets everywhere!

Bethany said...


Because I don't have at least an email address, I can't enter you into tonight's drawing. I apologize, but I cannot accept annoymous entries. It's unfair to the other posters and followers. Next time please email your entry to me if you wanted to remain annoymous in public. Thank you for dropping by and please don't be a stranger :-)

Bethany said...


LOL good sentence--you did fine! I've entered you in for tonight's drawing. Thank you for dropping by--always good to "see" you around here :-)

Bethany said...


Your sentence made me smile and laugh. Good one! You're entered in for tonight's drawing. Thank you for dropping by and please don't be a stranger :-)

Bethany said...


The contest is now officially closed to entries! I'm going to draw the winner and will notify whomever the winner is by email. Then for Wednesday's post I will announce who won the ShadowFalls #1 Necklace & Earrings Set. Thank you to all who participated today. There will be more authors and jewelery all the way through Friday :-)
