A book giveaway has been announced. It started with Wendy posting about the Thinking of Nat challenge and a very kind author replying in her comments. Katherine Center is the author of The Bright Side of Disaster, which Wendy chose for this latest Nattie challenge. She offered Wendy a copy of the book to use as a giveaway. How sweet is she?

Wendy's Post about the Giveaway

I emailed Katherine to thank her. She replied almost immediately. And she is lovely. She is also sending me a copy of this book to read and review. I will post the review here and then offer the book as a giveaway in honor of Nat, here at The Nattie Challenge. I will post more details when I have read the book. Maybe I will just do a drawing or something more contest-ish... an essay on Motherhood, perhaps. Maybe our next challenge will have a motherhood theme. Nattie was such an amazing mom to both of her amazing children.

Thank you all so much for supporting this challenge. It is a selfish endeavor for me, in many ways. I can't lie about that. It helps me to think of Nat and to be connected to her memory in this way. But, Natalie was so far from selfish. I hope to always keep this blog and the challanges focused on her, on things she loved and lived, on the generous spirit that lead her.

Get reading!


P.S. Feel free to visit Katherine Center's website (click here) and send her a thank you for supporting Nat in this way. She is another bit of proof that Natalie will keep on touching lives, present in the flesh or not.

Just an FYI: Katherine is so sweet...she not only sent me an autographed copy of her book to give-away, she also sent me a personalized signed copy for me to I will also be giving away a second book which is the review book I first received from the publisher! So TWO people will be winning a book on my blog - one will be signed.
