Switching things up a little on the blog today.
This giveaway is not for a cozy mystery, but is by 
a cozy mystery author. 

I'm so excited to be hosting this giveaway 
for a copy of  
by cozy author 
Julie Seedorf!

From selling her family on a popular website, to protecting an imperfect evergreen tree with five tops in her yard,(What would happen if they cut humans down for being imperfect?), author Julie Seedorf's Something About Nothing is a collection of columns by that same name that debuted in 2006. 

In everything that we speak to our friends and neighbors, there is something hidden deep in the recesses of our hearts -- silent, wanting to come out when we greet one another. We feel no one cares if we hurt or need a little kindness to make us smile each day, and so we spend our conversation on nothings. "How's the weather?" "How are you?" The answer is always, "Fine". We don't always answer with what is hidden below the surface. This collections of columns is full of inspiration, silliness, and heart. Laughter and dreams keep the soul alive. They are the something's needed in our soul of life.

Julie is giving away a copy of 
to one lucky winner!

Giveaway is open to US and Canada

SOMETHING ABOUT NOTHING is a delightful and thought provoking book based on author Julie Seedorf’s column by the same name.

I love her idea that “…underneath all the nothings we talk about – there is something much deeper needing to be said.” It’s so very true. We automatically answer fine or pretty good, or we expect others to answer the same. But what are we really thing? Feeling?

With chapters titled Wrinkly Crinkly, Ugly Shoes, I’m A Shorty, and Me? A Whimp?, just to name a few, I found myself in her words over and over again. It was as though author Seedorf had written this book (her column) based on my life. I’m sure you’ll find yourself on these wonderful pages too.

Treat yourself to this fun, thoughtful, and insightful book today. And pick up a copy or two for loved ones. Buy A Friend A Book Day is August 31. SOMETHING ABOUT NOTHING will make a perfect gift for that or any day!

Julie Seedorf is also the author of the hysterically funny, Fuchsia Minnesota Mystery series, and the Granny Is In Trouble Children’s Mystery series. She is also part of the We Go On: Charity Anthology for Veterans.

I have no doubt you’ll adore her books. I sure do!
