The Heart in the #LaunchDayGiveaway

We ❤ #giveaways.

But it all has to do with how much we #booknerdigans love our reading habit even more than FREE stuff, right? (We’ve got to feed that book-loving heart we have…) 

We’re celebrating a special day in the Cambron household — another book birthday! A Sparrow in Terezin launched TODAY and we’ve been smiling for the past 24 hour straight it seems. 🙂 But this book birthday is extra special because it’s the first sequel novel I’ve had published, the first novel released since I’ve become a full-time author, and it’s the first time a giveaway gift basket includes items all hand-selected by me because they hold a very dear meaning for the story.

I wrote A Sparrow in Terezin on the wings of my Dad’s journey to heaven in late 2013. It was a very sad time for our family – yes. I know that. But before he passed away, my Dad encouraged me to keep going. To keep writing. Keep following Jesus though my heart may be grieving. And it’s the hope we have in heaven and the verse my Dad texted me before he passed away that became the heart’s motivation for the characters’ journeys in this story:

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

— Joshua 1:9 (NIV)

 It’s been the dream of my heart to write books that inspire, encourage and uplift — all in Jesus’ name — for the past decade of my life. I hope this second installment in the Hidden Masterpiece series blesses you in reading as much as it did me in writing it. And it’s my pleasure to finally be able to share it with all of you today.

And with that… on to the FREE bookish stuff! : )

I’ve attached giveaway links to this post to make it super easy to enter -OR- you can always drop by the Freebies & Fun link on this website, for active giveaway promotions throughout the year. (Unless otherwise noted, giveaways are for US residents only.)


A Sparrow in Terezin Book-inspired Grand Prize Giveaway – Connecting across a century through one little girl, a Holocaust survivor with a foot in each world, two women will discover a kinship that springs even in the darkest of times. In this tale of hope and survival, Sera and Kája must cling to the faith that sustains and fight to protect all they hold dear—even if it means placing their own futures on the line.

One grand prize winner will receive:
— A set of poppy notecards (Hand-crafted, artist’s cards)
— A poppy brooch/pin (vintage-inspired)
I Never Saw Another Butterfly (the book of children’s art that inspired the novel)
Mrs. Miniver DVD (the favorite WWII Era film mentioned in the book)
Literary tea bags (a favorite gift I like to give friends)
— Tumbler (with poppies for Remembrance Day in Europe)
— A copy of A Sparrow in Terezin
