Y’all I’m so excited about LOWCOUNTRY BONEYARD coming out in April I can hardly stand it! To celebrate, I’ve put together a sweepstakes for a fabulous weekend for two in beautiful Charleston, SC, voted the top U.S. travel destination for four years in a row—and now second in the world—by Conde Nast readers
There’s only going to be one prize, but it will include some of Liz’s favorite Charleston places and things. We’re going to start with one item in the package, a two night stay at the historic John Rutledge House Inn during the summer season. Each week, I’ll add something to the package—some weeks big things, some weeks smaller, fun items. Announcements will be made on my Facebook page and on this blog.
We’ll have a drawing for the winner at the LOWCOUNTRY BONEYARD launch party on April 21st at Fiction Addiction in Greenville, SC. The party is from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm–y’all come if you can. We’ll be serving refreshing beverages and nibbles. The drawing will take place at approximately 6:00 pm. It will be videoed and the winner announced in a newsletter which will be emailed immediately after the drawing, on this blog, and on Facebook.
Here’s how to enter for your chance to win: Just pre-order LOWCOUNTRY BONEYARD and then fill out the form (click here).
- You can pre-order a signed, personalized copy from Fiction Addiction, my local independent bookstore for delivery nationwide.
- Or pre-order from any of the stores I’ll be visiting (shown on the entry form and on my schedule page). I’d love to see you—come pick up your book while I’m in the store, or if that’s not convenient, pick it up whenever you like—signed and personalized if you like. Many of these stores offer shipping as well.
- Pre-order from your favorite bookstore. If it isn’t one I’m visiting, you’ll need to wait until April 1 to order. (Please let me know via email at susan at susanmboyerbooks dot com if you have trouble ordering.)

- You can also enter by requesting LOWCOUNTRY BONEYARD from your local library.
- All of you dear, fabulous folks who have already pre-ordered need only fill out the form.
Want to enter twice? Pre-order LOWCOUNTRY BONEYARD and also request it from your local library. Want to do some birthday or early Christmas shopping? Consider giving LOWCOUNTRY BONEYARD as a gift. You may enter once for each copy you pre-order or request. You’ll need to fill out a separate entry form for each entry.
