New Article and a RAK!

Sorry for the double post everyone; however, I didn't realize my article on Scrapjazz would post today! Well, I just looked, and my article was there! It is titled "10 Questions with Rebeca Seitz, Author." Now you may be wondering why this might be of interest to you. Well, not only is Rebeca an author but she scrapbooks, and her fictional books are about sisters that scrapbook! You may have already read them; maybe not. Rebeca has generously given me two copies of this book to giveaway today:
I am so excited to share these with you! What do you have to do to enter? Check out the article and leave a comment here telling me why you would love to read this book. Or tell me what you loved about Rebeca as you learned a bit about her! All comments must be posted by Sunday, November 23, at 11:59 p.m. CST. I will randomly draw two winners! All of Rebeca's books can be found on amazon.com if you would like to learn more about them. Have fun, and thank you Rebeca!

These books look awesome! i'd love to win this one because i love the focus on the personal-ness of scrapping...

Tanis said...

OH I"VE HEARD OF THOSE!!!!! One of my friends mentioned it a couple of weeks ago....

I can not believe that she writes her books in 2 or 3 weeks!!!!! That is PHENOMENAL!

I'd read them cause you are recommending them :) And who could resist a story about a passion of ours?

Thanks Patter! Great article!

I loved reading about what HER favorite books are and how long it takes her to edit her novels!

tweetygirl said...

I agree with Rebecca that these books look awesome. Also liked the fact that I recognized some of the authers that the author enjoys. It's hard to believe it only takes her a few weeks to write a book! Wow! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Rona said...

I love to read a good story!! In fact I find myself looking at my scrapbook magazines and reading other peoples journaling!! I can't believe it only takes her 2 to 3 weeks to complete a book!! I have scrapbook layouts that took me longer!!!!

Colleen said...

I have Sisters, Ink and Coming Unglued. Love them both. I didn't know about Prints Charming. I need to find that book also. so wish I had sisters like those in the book.

don't include me in the rak

When it comes to creativity in cards...I do okay...when it comes to creativity and inspiration in scrapbooking...I lack in that department! I would like the book to hopefully find more scrapping inspiration that isn't coming from a picture of a LO..it's coming from someone's story.....

Kiwime said...

Love these books, but they are not easy to come by in a small town in a small country... even when I sweet talk my library, they too have a limited budget, so I would looooove to win a copy of Coming Unglued!! I was able to read Sisters Ink online thanks to B&H Publishers.

Susan said...

I love a good book! I'm anxious to start reading her series. Thanks for introducing us to her!

Karen D said...

Never heard of her, but you have definitely peaked my interest! Now they are a must read. Thanks for the great article.

Tracy said...

I read her first book and really enjoyed it.

Michelle said...

These sound like books both my mom and I would enjoy. My favorite quote from the interview was when she said she has a book in her purse. lol I always have one in my minivan for waiting for the kids time. My purses are all too tiny for a book, but my minivan's not. ;-)

Thanks for the chance to win. Even if I don't, these are on the buy list for Christmas gifts!

Marilee said...

Patter! These books look like they would be great reading! I love how her characters "talk" to her! I will want to definitely check out her books! Thanks for telling us about them1

Karen S. said...

I haven't heard of these books before but I think my mom and I would both enjoy reading them. Thanks for introducing her to me!

Suz said...

They look like great books. Some of my favorite fiction books revolve around other hobbies I love (quilting & knitting) I will chekc these out - TFS

waldenbunch said...

I would love to read the book because it's fiction which I love and about scrapbooking, which I adore!

elainaann said...

These books looke great! How fun it is to combine two wonderful hobbies.

Sharon said...

I love to read "theme" books. I've read the ones by author Laura Childs (tea & scrapbook mysteries) and these by Rebeca sound right up my alley. Also love cooking mysteries.

melita said...

I love to read and haven't gotten anything new lately...been making more trips to the library rather than purchasing to keep costs down, so I would love to be able to get a copy of this, read it of course, and pass it on!

Kimberly said...

I too have heard about the books. One can never have to many inspirational books!

Alisa said...

Wow, only 2 weeks to write a book!! Amazing!! I would love to read them!!
Thanks for the chance to win!!

Stephanie Wright said...

Thanks for introducing me to this author. I would love to read her books because I love to read and I love scrapping. An added bonus is that I have a dd named Kendra who wants to be an author. That's amazing that she only takes 2-3 weeks to write her books. WOW!!

Robynccgirl said...

I can really relate to her stories as I have two sisters of my own who both enjoy scrappin' with me. I also have lots of friends who have become sisters to me. We all get together at least once a month to srap. Thanks so much for the chane to win a great book!

JoAnne said...

I would love to win this book it sounds good. I love reading.

I love that she writes in a couple of weeks wow that is quite a talent.

terry said...

I have never read a book about scrappers. I love to read and think that would be a great thing to read!

Amber Hensley said...

I have problems with creativity with scrapbooking pages because hubby and I don't have any kiddos yet. Sometimes it is hard to get creative about the kitties lol. Books have always been one of the best tools that I have ever found for scrapbooking. I love that her books are more about why we scrapbook and who it connects us to rather than what we scrapbook.

Dawnie said...

Patter, I am just thrilled to have been able to read that article! I am a scrapper, a reader and a would-be author myself - I'm amazed that she writes her books in just 3 weeks! I bet she's like me: she gets on a roll and just plows thru. Great article! Thanks for the link to it!

Brenda Harmon said...

Rebeca seemed so down to to earth. I love to combine my passion for reading with scrapping. Books on tape are ideal for this. I wish these were available in that format!!
