Merry Christmas Giveaway

winner-chosen

Christmas? Wait…it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! Well, Thanksgiving is a little over a week away and since it’s so late in the month, Christmas will be here before we know it. So that’s why I’m giving away three copies of The Christmas Sleigh, which includes my Paradise Christmas novella, A Mamm for Christmas as well as two more great holiday stories from Molly Jebber and Kelly Long. Let’s get into the Christmas spirit!

kish-valley-5-mkd-wmBut wait! There’s more! If you are chosen as one of the winners, then I’ll send you a second copy for you to gift to a friend! Yep, you read that right. One signed copy for you and another one to give to a friend.

So what do you have to do in order to qualify for the giveaway? Head over to my page dedicated to Kish Valley (aka Big Valley) and tell me what your favorite picture is there. Be sure to stay for the entire slide show. There are a few pictures of the infamous yellow buggies of the Valley.

The three winners will be chosen by random drawing at the end of each week (We’ll actually draw on Sunday and announce the winners on Monday morning.)

If you don’t win the first week, never fear, I’m giving away the three-plus three copies each week from now until Christmas. That’s 18 chances to win!

So go check out the pictures and leave me a comment as to which is your favorite. Thanks for stopping by, Merry (early) Christmas, and the best of luck to everyone!

Thanks for reading!

    1. Loved them all…but mostly love the pics with barns and outbuildings and the phone shanty!! I take TONS of pics just like those on my Amish-adventures, because I just love the lines and shapes of the buildings and roofs against the backdrops of beautiful Amish Country areas!

    1. The yellow buggies were so fun to watch! We actually talked to a man who was a ‘yellow topper.’ He acted like it was no big deal that they had different color buggies, but it was so interesting to us. I’ll be blogging about the different color buggies and what they mean later in this contest. Thanks for coming by!

  6. Wow, Amy! So many great pictures that it’s difficult to narrow down a choice. However, I have 2 favorites. The first is the homemade cow crossing sign. Too cute! The second is the pink spotted nosed cow that seems to have been looking directly at the camera, almost as if it knew it should pose for you. Loved it!

  7. Amy, not only do you have a wonderful talent to tell a story, you have an equally wonderful talent for photographer’s. I can’t pick just one favorite! I love the picture of the cows resting, the horse and buggy pictures, and the beautiful hills and green everywhere! Gorgeous!

  10. Not sure if this is where I comment. I finally got to see the slide show. They all where beautiful. Country life. Very peaceful. If I have to chose my favorite it would be the farm down in the valley. Tied in second place was the close up of the Holstein Cows and the mail box. Thanks for the giveaway.

  12. I had a lot of faves. But being a genealogist, I love cemeteries. So that is one, the McYoder street sign is hilarious. I love Amish school houses and birdhouses. And I loved the Horse and buggy only parking sign. I need one of those!

  14. Love the slideshow; I think the panoramic shots from hillside as they encompass an array of buildings, etc. Thank you again for the giveaway!

  15. I am always amazed by the “yellow toppers”. We live just a county away and our Amish don’t use these. Your pictures were all great. We have been to many of these places…..but, my absolute favorite is Peight’s Country Store. The ladies there are so sweet and always ask me to bring pictures of what I make from their craft supplies. Purple Martin Bake Shop is also a favorite place to stop for left-over discounted bake goods from the Belleville Market. We have also become friendly with a woman on Rockville Road who bakes and grows vegetables. What a wonderful community you have captured. Thanks Amy!!

  16. Hmm, do I have to pick just one. I love the one with the six yellow buggies parked altogether because I have never seen the yellow buggies before. My second favorite is just a picture of the hilly road. It reminded me when we went to visit my uncles farm in Ohio.

  17. Loved all the pictures….the pictures overlooking the valley are my favorite ones. Found it interesting the one way sign () with arrows going the β€œwrong” way under the one way sign. Seems strange seeing yellow buggies instead of the black buggies I am used to seeing.
    Blessings, Tina

  18. Wow! So many great pictures! I like the photos of the open land a lot, but my favorite has to be the one that has a sign that says “Quilts” and “Closed Sundays”. I love quilts and love it when Sunday is a day of rest. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the book. I have several friends that would love the other copy if I’m blessed to win.

    1. Thanks, Vickie! The quilt shop was a blast. Shop is a big word, It was the back room of this sweet little woman’s house. She sold the quilts for other people. Most of them were on the top of a chest freezer. She had them stacked in two or three rooms and just let us wander in and look around. I didn’t have the cash on me for one, but when I go back…

  19. Absolutely beautiful pictures and so hard to choose. I like the Valley from the top of Jacks Mountain, the yellow buggies and you and Stacey with the valley in the background! I’m sure both of you could write a book about this trip. Thank you for the giveaway.

  22. I’m hoping I saw the correct pictures but I didn’t see them numbered. I enjoyed the cabbies too, never seen or heard about them. Also, liked the Road picture that guided my eyes to the farmland ahead, sky just beautiful view. I’m a retired school teacher so it was neat to see the school too. Thanks Amy!

  23. I have never read any of your books but love Amish books . . . I was born and raised in the Susquehanna Valley (Freeburg, Snyder County, PA) and my kids went to school with a few Amish children and we bought lots of produce from the Amish. Would love to win one of your books. Thank you for the opportunity!!

  24. I loved your slideshow and had to look up where Kish Valley is – PA. I’d never heard of it. (I’ve been to Lancaster, though, and love it there!) All the pictures were great, but I loved looking at the yellow buggies. So colorful, so shiny, and so different! Keep taking and sharing pictures!
