Second-Chance Give-Away - Autographed First Three Books in the Threshold Series!

I often review books for young children; I do this for a couple reasons . . . first, my grandson are young, so I enjoy reviewing books they will enjoy! Secondly, what isn't there to absolutely enjoy and flat out love about picture books with cute, clever and creative stories???!!!

However; if you have older grandchildren you may not be as interested in give-aways of cute storybooks, so, in the past year I reviewed a series of books by Christa Kinde . . . "The Threshold Series . . . The Blue DoorThe Hidden Deep and The Broken Window. I said, "When it comes to books; particularly novels, for older elementary children and young teens, it can be a tremendous challenge to find anything they will be engaged by and which you still want them to read. Far too often there is a lot of garbage out there for this age to read. It seems like most of the books for them have a lot of vampires, zombies, dark magic, violence, sex and stories designed to scare the kids. I, for one, do not want my grandchildren to read those books. So what options do you have to give them stories which are well written? Stories which will capture their imagination? Stories which they will want to read? Stories which will challenge and encourage their walk with God - which of course, is the most important thing?  While these books are written for older elementary and teens, they are stories you will likely find you enjoy as well! (You'll find my previous post with additional information about books from Christa at this link)

I recently let you know about free downloads of additional Christa Kinde ebooks: Angels All Around and Angels in Harmony(You'll find the download at this link and at this link - and remember, they are FREE! A gift from Christa to you!)

I also announced a wonderful give-away of the first three books in the Threshold Series, all signed by Christa. I assume when people enter any of my give-aways, they really do want to win. But, if you do not check back to find out if you won so you can get your address info to me, I have no way to get your prize to you . . . and have to hold a second chance give-away. This is the case with this set of three, autographed books from Christa. If you are over the age of 18, live in the USA and would like to be in the drawing for these three wonderful books which will be on January 20, 2014, comment below and share another of your favorite series of books! Mine would have to be the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder - I loved the books when I was growing up and was thrilled when they made a TV series based on them!

Additional entries in this give-away are available if you follow on Google+, Google Friend Connect, follow by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share!) This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win the signed set of the first three books in the Threshold series and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!
