Hereafter Birthday Giveaway

Happy birthday to my little girl!!  She turns 7 today and she couldn’t be happier!  This little girl is our Rhode Island baby :)  She has been an unbelievable blessing!  Recently during we had a whole week just us girls, it was so much fun!  One of our dates was out for dinner at Macaroni Grill and then off to Barnes and Noble to listen to Tara Hudson read from Hereafter and do a signing.  My daughter was SO excited to meet someone famous!  One of our favorite places to go is to the bookstore.  Of my three children my little girl is my book buddy, so she was super psyched to meet a “real” author.

A little background on how my princess knows about Tara’s book…she sees me read and is always asking questions about my books.  Usually at bedtime she will ask me to tell her a bedtime story about what I am reading, so I do.  Of course I G-Rate the story and give her a brief summary of the chapters that I am reading.  She really enjoys sharing my books with me and feels as though she has read them too.  Hereafter was the same way.  So when we went to meet Tara, my daughter had felt a little connected to the author as well.  I must say, Tara’s story was much better than my G-Rated version!  So, my daughter had gotten a couple of books for herself (a girl should never leave the bookstore empty-handed) and when it came time to have Tara sign she had a certain page picked out in her Baby Mouse book.  Tara was so kind to take the time to chat with her and sign her book, princess was on cloud nine!  When we got in the car she let me know that Tara was her new BFF :)

Soooooo, for her birthday she wanted to put up for grabs a SIGNED copy of Hereafter.
