I'm hosting a contest at The Mustard Seed from May 15th to May 29th. You have two weeks to enter this contest for a chance to win. 

If you've read my book, Bella Lucia, and would like to enter to win an ecopy of my newest book release, My S.E.D. Label, please follow the following instructions:

1. Who was your favorite character in Bella Lucia and what are some of the reasons why you liked this character?

2. Did you relate well or empathize with one character more than the others and why?

3. Post a review on Amazon

To enter for a chance to win, please answer the two questions listed above and email your responses to me, via my contact page—and also post your review on Amazon. Thank you for entering and I hope you enjoyed Bella Lucia! 

One winner will receive an ecopy of My S.E.D. Label:
When Greg was in high school, the guidance counselors and social service caseworkers gave him the label of S.E.D. He never understood what they meant. No one even bothered to explain their words to him. All they gave was psycho-babble and stern looks. Who cares, right? He’s just another messed up teenager with no future, except a life of drugs and crime. Didn’t anyone think to dig deeper beneath the crusty layers and help him. Finally, several years later, someone came into his life and made a difference. He was his therapist and he told him that label meant: He was Severely Emotionally Disturbed. Greg immediately disagreed. Yes, he was messed up—but severely, not really. There was more to him than the label. He just wanted everyone to understand.   My Amazon Author Page

Anastasia has an illness that has prevented her from ever attending school and makes her father, Sebastian, over protective.
