Kay Bratt’s Birthday Bash Giveaway!

Written by Kay on . Posted in Contests and Give-A-Ways

 

UPDATE: WINNERS CHOSEN AND LISTED AT BOTTOM OF POST!

A few (okay, more than a few..) years ago on a beautiful March day (the 19th), I came into this world all smiley and curious. Well, maybe screaming and totally ticked off, but still… I’ve got three main prizes to give away for my birthday!

Follow the prompts and use the comment box below to enter.

The drawing will be on Friday, March 22 and there will be 15 winners!

You may not know this but unless you are Hugh Howey or John Grisham, writers these days have pretty much a zero to nothing budget for marketing our titles. So we must depend on our readers to help get our books out there and noticed! I’ve always been very lucky that my sales have continually increased due to pleased readers and the magic of word of mouth. For my birthday (thank you very much) and this giveaway, I’m hoping that we can together improve the ranking and visibility of my latest novel, A Thread Unbroken. So here goes… and I hope you win something!

Grandparents Day is coming up. Do you know a grandparent or elderly person in your life that you’d like to read my memoir, Silent Tears? To be entered to win one of 5 signed copies given away of the first edition (larger print) Silent Tears; A Journey of Hope in a Chinese Orphanage, post this Amazon link to A Thread Unbroken on your blog or Facebook, then comment below that you’ve done it and who you want to be entered to win the Silent Tears first edition larger print book.

To be entered to win one of 5 copies given away of Silent Tears MP3-Audio, post this Amazon link to A Thread Unbroken on your blog or Facebook, then comment below that you’ve done it and want to be entered to win the Silent Tears audio version.

 

To be entered to win one of 5 copies given away of A Thread Unbroken MP3-Audio, post this Amazon link to A Thread Unbroken on your blog or Facebook, then comment below that you’ve done it and want to be entered to win the Thread Unbroken audio version.

 

 The winners have been drawn. If you didn’t win a first edition of Silent Tears, I’ll be doing another giveaway for it before my next book release, so be sure to sign up for my Kay Bratt newsletter to get first notification! (Go to home page and sign up is on left hand upper corner)

If you are a winner listed below, use the contact tab to send me where you’d like your prize sent to, and who to sign it to if it is a book. Or you can reach me on Facebook!

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION!

    I posted your link to my Facebook! I would LOVE for both my mother and mother-in-law to be nominated, but I know that is not allowed. So, I’ll stick with my mom. My mom, Marilyn, is a wonderful supporter and friend. She was a cheerleader in our adoptions from the beginning. I am blessed that my children know their Gigi and LOVE her. As an avid reader, and adoption supporter, I know she would love a copy of your book. And large print? BONUS!

    Thank you, and HAPPY birthday!

    Done! It would be great to win this for my dad. I have told him about our trip to China and the orphanage but I don’t think he really listened. I think hearing this book would give him more of an understanding of the conditions some of the kids live in. It a must read for anyone connected to the adoption community whether it’s parent, grandparent, relatives, friends, teachers, social workers, religious leaders, the list is endless. Very emotionally draining but a very good book!

    I have read all of the Kay Bratt books. They’ve taken me on a journey back to the China I love. Part of me will always be there and a big part will be in the orphanage where meeting Kay began a beautiful friendship. I selfishly want a large print edition of “Silent Tears” because my copy was given to a caring friend in the nursing home that seems to want to hold on to it!

    I posted and would most like to win Silent Tears first edition larger print book. I love collecting autographs and that would be awesome. In tribute to my own mother, the “Grammy” of my grandchildren, she took the trek around the world with me to adopt. It was a time of stress, excitement, heartache, and love. I couldn’t have done it without her, nor would I have wanted to!

    Would love to win “Silent Tears.” My 8 year old is from an orphanage in the Hunan Province. I think this book would be good for my whole family as my parents in particular have never really understood what life is like in a Chinese orphanage. We visited our daughter’s orphanage and while not up to what we would consider “American Standards” you could tell that the basic needs of the children were being met to the best of their ability and I knew beyond a shadow of doubt that my daughter’s nanny loved her very much.

    I posted the thread to fb for the mp3 of “A Thread Unbroken.” That would be cool to have one of your books be the first I’ve enjoyed in that format! (I’m so old school, ha!)
