Hey, everyone this Beckey (Mia’s assistant)…

Stopping in to say hey and give you TWO chances to get some goodies while Mia is deep in her writing cave with a TOP SECRET book that she is writing… (I know a few details and all I can say is this is going to be good one.)

(Beckey looks out the window towards Mia’s writing cave.)

Primitive on the outside, but this was her desk a few days ago when I checked on her…

Inside mia's writing cave

Like any assistant I try not to bother her and let her creativity flow when she’s inside the cave.


Would you like to get some GOODIES in the mail?

Well, we have several chance for you to receive a few swag items that have been cleverly disguised in surprise grab bags that my 12-year-old put together!



How? Well, that’s easy.

Read and create a NEW review of Mia’s books on Amazon, B&N or Goodreads then share the link here on Mia’s blog in this form that is below (Don’t forget to add your address so your swag grab bag can be mailed to you.):


THAT’S NOT THE ONLY giveaway for the summer that will be happening…

Summer is here and in full swing!


From now and through the entire month of July, take a picture of you with a Mia Kerick book on a vacation or a staycation then post the picture to this group:

A picture of you with each of Mia Kerick’s book(s) will be counted towards points on the Rafflecopter.

The grand prize is a custom Mia Kerick beach towel, beach bag, a Mia Kerick coffee mug with Folgers hazelnut coffee, and an assortment of swag items.

Modeled by my adorable sidekick/toddler, Sky.

Here’s a shot without Sky, but she confiscated the pens, teddy bear, coffee mug and coffee… (Silly girl that she is…)

Pictures can be on a staycation while you read with (or to) your pet(s))…

Or even up on a mountain top…


(Mia comes out of her writing cave,)

Oh, there she is…

Mia: Hi, there followers and guests … I’m just popping out of the cave for a cup of coffee and some fresh air. It smells like feet down there!

Beckey: Hey, do you have anything to add to my “takeover” post?

Mia: Why, yes I do, as a matter of fact.

Thank you to Paul Richmond for the new cover to The Red Sheet that matches better with the spirit of the book.

Beckey: Oh wow, Mia–that’s beautiful!

Mia: I agree. I love it and the response from my readers has been amazing.

Beckey: Well, guys and gals, ladies and gents, it’s time for me to say farewell. But before I go I must inform you that, due to rising shipping costs there is a limit on what countries items will be shipped to. The grand prize of the giveaway for the Take Mia on Vacation giveaway will only be sent within the United States. There will be other smaller prizes that can be won and will be sent to other locations (Sorry, everyone… Mia was shocked when she mailed a package to a faraway country and it came out $70 just to ship. A promised prized is a promise, and so it was mailed.)

I want to thank you for reading this. I hope to see you in the Take Mia on Vacation Facebook group with some great vacation/staycation pictures.
