Bloggy Giveaways Carnival Giveaway: Walking With Angels: Aural's Gift!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button



I've won before from some of the great sites that work with Bloggy Giveaways, and I wasn't planning on hosting a giveaway until I had an idea... why not give away a copy of my husband's wonderful book as a prize?

Walking With Angels Volume 1: Aural's Gift is a book that details the story of a girl that can see into the spirit world... specifically angels and demons. I know that this book is purely fiction and a product of my husband's imagination, but the tale he weaves is extremely plausable... it really changed my thoughts about how the world of the unseen could potentially work. Do saved people have angels that follow them around? What part do demons have in the physical world?

Well, in this book, the ability to see angels and demons wasn't particularly a blessing. People start to think that Aural is a bit... nutty. Anyway, I won't spoil the rest of the story, but if you would like a copy for free, just leave a comment on my blog telling me either who your favorite Christian author is, or why you would like to read this book.

I will have to add, some of this book might be disturbing to young children. It is not the kind of book I wouldn't want my grandma or pastor reading... in fact, we have loaned this book out to people at my church, including the pastor, but some of the content is best read by older people. Here is a longer review that I wrote about the book.

We will probably end up shipping this straight out from amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com, otherwise I'd offer to have it autographed. If you really wanted an autographed copy, I could manage that but it would be smoke damaged due to the recent fire.

I will pick the winner randomly out of all comments received prior to 11:59 PM PDT on April 25th. Please only enter once or you will be disqualified. Also make sure that there's an easy way to contact you... if you leave an email I'll email you, if I can't find one I'll post a comment on your blog, and if you leave no email and no blog I'll have to find another winner :( . US addresses only please. I'll post the winner here next week, probably Monday or so.

Good luck! And be sure to visit here for more fabulous prizes!

This sounds very interesting. It sounds like a book that I would really enjoy. Congratulations to your husband!

Ah, my perfect timing... Right after I read this post, someone else came first :P. (If you're curious, I came across your blog from your post on jury duty, which I found amusing.)
I'd like to read this book because I tend to shy away from Christian books, but judging from the reviews it "isn't preachy." (Are such more mainstream books common?)
I'm not sure how to end this post, but I hope your participation in this giveaway will bring you more viewers/comments :)

Although you claim this book is a work of fiction, there truly are people who see the dark and the light. Something tells me you may be keenly aware of this, however to admit that, people think your loco! It can be very scary, particularly to children. I would love to read your husbands take! I am a fan of Joel Osteen, when I need a lift. Inspirational!

My favorite Christian series was the Left Behind books. They were hard to put down. I don't really have a favorite author. Instead I pick books that interest me.

This sounds like a really interesting book. I love reading but lately have not found any that really interest me- not like this. I know many people that claim that they can see spirits as well so it would be really interesting to see how this story ends.

Wow, that's cool that you're able to give away your husband's book. It sounds really interesting... my mom and I go through books like other people go through underwear, so it would be nice to have something totally new to read.
