Some Nice Words

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

STORYBOOK DAD, my brand new romance release, just earned a great review from Fresh Fiction. In the words of the reviewer, Kay Quintin, ” I thoroughly enjoyed the education and insight into the disease of MS. STORYBOOK DAD is a fantastic heartfelt story! I will absolutely seek out more stories from Laura Bradford.”

Doesn’t get much better than that, does it?

If you haven’t read STORYBOOK DAD yet, you can find a copy of this book (starting October 12th) in Wal-mart, K-mart, most Targets, various online venues, and some bookstores. It’s a book very near and dear to my heart thanks to its tie to multiple sclerosis. If you read it, drop me an email and let me know what you thought.

Tote of Courage

Friday, September 7th, 2012

In honor of the upcoming release of my latest romance, STORYBOOK DAD, and its tie to a cause near and dear to my heart (multiple sclerosis), I’ve decided to have a little contest. 

The main prize is what I’m calling A Tote of Courage.  It’s a very cute tote bag that sports the orange M.S. ribbon with the words, “Love, Courage, Hope” at the bottom.  Inside the bag, I’ve added a few goodies…my favorite book ever (Mary Higgins Clarks’ A CRY IN THE NIGHT), my favorite chick flick (27 DRESSES), my favorite deadline treat (a bag of candy corn), and a copy of STORYBOOK DAD.

Additionally, once the Tote of Courage winner has been drawn, I will pick out two more names–each of whom will simply receive an autographed copy of STORYBOOK DAD.

As for how to enter, the rules are simple:

1) One entry per person (a second is automatically given to those who “share” the contest announcement off my Laura Bradford fan page on Facebook).

2) To enter, please send THE FIRST NAME and LAST INITIAL of someone you know who is afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis to me at: OR via a comment beneath the contest announcement on my Laura Bradford fan page on Facebook (link to my FB page can be found on the top of this page).

3) This event closes at midnight (Eastern Time) on Saturday, September 15th.

 4) One Tote of Courage winner, as well as two individual STORYBOOK DAD winners, will be randomly selected from all the eligible entries received. Winners will be announced right here on this page on Sunday, September 16th.

Good luck! And may we all see a world free of M.S. in the near future!

**STORYBOOK DAD is available for pre-order now. It will release in stores on October 12th. It can be purchased now via Harlequin’s site by clicking HERE.
