Congratulations to my two lovely Goodreads giveaway winners: Allison from Siloam Springs, Arizona, and Cherie from Pensacola, Florida! You’ll each receive a fun, summer tote bag including a signed copy of The Time It Snowed In Puerto Rico, a selection of signature Puerto Rican recipes and treats from the book! I’ll be shipping these out shortly and look forward to hearing how you like the book and your goodies.
Thank you to all of my fabulous readers who signed up to win. There were over 2,000 Goodreader entrants for TWO copies of my novel! Lucky Allison & Cherie! But it could be you next time. I promise to do another giveaway in a few months and will announce it here on the blog. So keep checking in!
Today is a wonderful day. The paperback edition of The Time It Snowed In Puerto Rico releases and I couldn’t be more pleased. Paperbacks remind me of Scholastic Book Fairs in elementary school. Those big tin clamshells on wheels that opened up to a rainbow of book options and brought the distinctive smell of paper and glue–remember those? My affinity for paperbacks was forged then and has remained throughout the decades. My design team at Crown/Random House did such a stupendous job on the paperback. The physical aspects are a dream and quintessential Puerto Rico: bright and textured, I can almost feel the tropical sand and sun on my fingertips. You’ll have to stop by the store and pick one up yourself!
Again, congrats to my two Goodreads winners! You’ll be receiving a package from me very soon!
Yours truly, Sarah
