August 2013 Sponsors

August 1, 2013 | 1 Comment

Now that we’ve finished up SBT13, we’re going back to our regular book giveaway program. Need a refresher on how it works? Click here.

Except. I’m testing something new this month:

1) We’re going to try the Rafflecopter thing and see if it works better than simply commenting, and

2) Some of our book prizes will be ebook formats. (So pay attention when you enter the titles you’re interested in winning in the Rafflecopter form. Make sure it’s offered in the format you want.)

A big thank you to this month’s Prize Sponsors! Please take a moment to learn more about our wonderfully generous sponsors.

BYUCK by Theric Jepson


Prize Format: Print or ebook

At one of the most conservative colleges in the country — Brigham Young University, where both angst and premarital sex are verboten — returned missionary, David Them, and his flamboyantly Texan roommate, Curses Olai, set out to pen a rock opera about the ultimate quest for the twenty-something Mormon male: avoiding matrimony.

There’s just one problem.

Dave’s best friend since age five, lacrosse player Martha “Referee” Plantree, is a girl — and Ref is on a quest of her own…

Byuck offers surprisingly tender and insightful meditations on love, lust, friendship, and marriage… and in the process, provides definitive proof that men and women can be friends, as long as the woman holds a lacrosse stick.

ThericJeppsonsqTheric Jepson spent most of his growing-up years in the mountains of Idaho and California. He currently lives in El Cerrito, California with his wife and sons and untold snails.

Theric is a writer of fiction and suchlike. His first novel, Byuck, has just been released from Strange Violin Editions. Other works include a long list of short stories, a handful of plays, and editor of The Fob Bible and Monsters & Mormons. Theric blogs at

Change of Heart by Roseanne Evans Wilkins


Prize Format: Print or ebook

Christina Andrews is trying to put the pieces of her broken heart together. She accepts a generous offer from her aunt and uncle to accompany them to Israel to watch their infant son.

While watching her cousin, she finds herself face to face with the Japanese Mafia and becomes the only obstacle for them to execute a plan none can hope to survive.

Roseanne Evans Wilkins: was the second oldest of 9 children, so I grew up in a house full of noisy kids. Craig grew up in a house with just 2 quiet kids. Opposites attract lol. Since I’m the one home, we filled the house with kids. I’d go crazy with silence. Craig manages the noise level by traveling all over the U.S. teaching other adults how to audit.

With 5 kids in sports, I keep busy running them to their practices and games. After hectic days running kids everywhere and taking care of three pre-schoolers, I find quiet time after everyone is in bed to write. I hope you enjoy the results :) .

The Scent of a Soul by Jennifer Thompson

ScentOfASoulPrize Format: Print or ebook

Fleeing her recent past, Lilliah Woods finds refuge in the anonymity of the present day inner-city slums. As she settles into the seedy apartment she must now call home, she meets mysterious Marek Jamison when he materializes in her doorway demanding to know who she is. From that moment, he becomes a guardian and guide as she gradually discovers his hidden world.

As their relationship develops, Lilliah learns of Marek’s dark past and of a brothers’ quarrel he has been embroiled in for years. The quarrel turns into a larger battle of good and evil, liberty versus tyranny, and the separation of love and lust.

With Lilliah as the ultimate prize, the deadly conflict reaches out to threaten her family, and the outcome of the final battle will determine her fate. Lilliah must embark on an unexpected path that teaches her to trust in the man she has come to love, and give of herself as she never thought she could….

Jennifer Thompson: I have been happily married to my husband for fifteen years. We met at Brigham Young University on a blind date, and, at first, I was sure he wasn’t for me, but now I cannot imagine my life without him. My life is busy, but I try to keep it as simple as possible, focusing on what matters most to me—home and family. I love to read, cook, spend time with my family, and now I can add writing to that list—it is my creative outlet; we all need one.
