Mother’s Day Giveaway

In honor of Mother’s Day here in the US (Sunday, May 11th), I’m celebrating my deep love and appreciation of my mom and ‘her stories’ by offering a giveaway!

My recently published (by All Things That Matter Press) illustrated kindle shorts – The Snow White Gift and The Library Next Door – are both based on real events in my mother’s life.

For those who have already read and reviewed, thank you so much.
You can read what they thought here and here.

For those who haven’t yet read them,

I would like to give away up to five copies of each!

All you have to do is leave a comment stating that you are willing to read one or both and post a review on Amazon (and Goodreads, if you are a member). Yes, you may receive both if you will write a review for both! These stories are about 17 pages each.

Remember, you don’t need a Kindle device to read them. You can download an app (for smartphones, tablets and computers) here.

 

The Library Next Door

Books were Rose’s secrets. Reading was an easy distraction, friend to her curiosity and the only thing she was sure she wanted to do. When she entered the library next door, what was real and imaginary became indistinguishable, and she grew ready to reveal the future of her relationship with the written word.

In Depression-weary times, a little girl’s wish for a special doll touches a stoic heart. Through sacrifice and pure intent, giving her what she wants results in disappointment but eventually confirms that love and patience can work magic.

Thank you to Christine, Ina and Francina for their kind reviews of the story:


Whatever Diane Denton writes, she simply draws the reader all the way in and invites him/her to be right there in the midst of the story, and this delightful heartwarming short story, The Snow White Gift, is no exception. Diane’s writing is warm, gentle and beautifully descriptive. Her books are simply a delight to be with and are very difficult to put down; she leaves the reader wanting more and more.
Christine Moran, journeyintopoetry

In this lovely Christmas story, all revolves around giving and the true value of kindness. Diane’s writing, with every detail vivid and adding to the surprising plot, is always a joy to read.
Ina Schroders-Zeeders, inaweblogisback

The Snow White Gift by Diane Denton is a compelling, moving , touching and beautiful fictional short story set around Christmas in Depression-weary times. Personally I think this is a story everyone should read for its all about the art of giving.  Unconditional giving, from the heart without asking anything back in return. Willing to set our own wishes aside to be able to give to another person.  I can highly recommend this wondrous and excellent written story to you! I read all the pages in one breath.
