My friends at WaterBook Press have put together a wonderful new web site, showcasing all the GGU books! Check out the site to:

  • learn the story behind the stories
  • download a coloring page for any book
  • find out about a related activity for each book
  • …and more!

Did you know there are 11 books in the series so far? (If you’re counting, GOD GAVE US SO MUCH is a compilation.) I’m working on the 12th! The next one is tentatively called GOD GAVE US THE STORY, and will be a Bible storybook geared just for the little ones who love the rest of the God Gave Us series. It’s a big project, so it won’t be out until 2019.

In the meantime, I hope you’ll check out the new site. If you do, you can enter to win one of three complete autographed sets of the books for your kids! (USA only–sorry!)

To enter:

  1. Visit GodGaveUsBooks.com
  2. Choose an activity or coloring sheet and download
  3. Subscribe to my quarterly e-newsletter via the green box at top right of screen (if you already receive my quarterly enewsletter you can still check this off)

  5. BONUS POINT for liking my Facebook page (facebook.com/LisaTawnBergren) (if you’ve already “liked me”—awwww—you can still check this off)

God Gave Us Family is Out!

God Gave Us Family is Out!

Here’s the latest release in the God Gave Us… Series, GOD GAVE US FAMILY. In this book, Little Pup’s wolf family is on their way to a special reunion—with lots of cousins, games, roasting marshmallows, and fun! As the young wolf thinks about different kinds of families, it’s the perfect opportunity for Mama and Papa to teach their inquisitive child about the families that God brings together. Some families are big and others are small, some are led by grandparents or just one parent, and some families include adopted little ones—yet each family is truly special.

David Hohn returns with his amazing artwork. Here are a few spreads…

The Countdown is On! 5 Weeks Left!

Welcome to the countdown to my big 5-0!! I have some serious goals before I turn 50:
1) I want to lose 40 lbs. (33 down, 7 left to go!)
2) I want a rough draft of KETURAH (working title for the first in the Sugar Baron’s Daughters trilogy) to be done (55K words left to write, but I’m on a roll!)

Each week I’ll post new Rafflecopters where you can enter to win a book or a whole trilogy. Enter any Rafflecopter that you think you’d like to read that book/series or know someone you could give it to. For my international friends (outside the USA), I’ll have 1-2 options for you too–because it’s so expensive to ship internationally, I have to pick and choose what I offer you (e-books or things I can email you or ship via Bookdepository.com). I’m already maxing the budget shipping a bunch of books to USA residents;  I hope you understand. THIS WEEK’S open-to-internationals contest is THREE WISHES and FOUR WINDS. If you live outside the USA and win, I will send you e-copies of both books. 🙂

So…what’s involved? Just enter the Rafflecopters below. (There are some ways to earn extra points for the trilogies.) Then check back each week for the next week’s offerings! (Although if you win, I’d ask you to bow out until week #4 and #5. We want to share the bounty.)

Thanks, in advance, for celebrating with me. I’m so thankful for my first 50 years on earth…including almost 50 books published. God is good, all the time.

Fall ’16 Scavenger Hunt Basics

Fall ’16 Scavenger Hunt Basics

If you’ve never taken part in one of our hunts, here’s the deal: You’re about to learn something new about (or be introduced to) 30 awesome Christian fiction authors, writing very unique books, from suspense to romance, supernatural to contemporary, young adult to historical women’s fiction. Feel free to TAKE YOUR TIME—you have all weekend to complete the hunt and enter for all the prizes along the way, including the big prizes (no need to race). Besides, each author has offered you unique information, found nowhere else on the Internet!

Here’s Your Basic Information:

Hunt Runs: November 3 @ NOON Mountain through November 6 @ MIDNIGHT Mountain (yes, some stops are appearing already–but all links won’t be working until noon on the 3rd–just wait to start scavenging to have the best experience!!)
