Free Books!

Well, After the Leaves Fall has been out for over a month now and I haven’t given away a single free copy. Scratch that, I have given lots of books away, but not online. Anyway, it’s time I amended that. Yay! Free stuff! I’m slowly learning that fall is all about giveaways in blog land…? I’m a newbie, be patient.

At any rate, in honor of my two November babies (Isaac was born in November and we picked Judah up from Ethiopia in November) I’m giving away two signed copies of Leaves. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Don’t forget to include a way for me to contact you if you don’t have a Blogger account. Next week Tuesday (November 13, Isaac’s 4th birthday!) I’ll draw two winners. Feel free to enter even if you already have the book--it makes a great Christmas present!

You may only enter once, but just to make things interesting, if 100 people comment to this post, I'll give away four signed books instead of two. Good luck!


  1. Really enjoyed your book, Nicole. Like keeping up with your blog as well!

  2. I too, loved your book! I'm hoping my mom could win the signed copy through me!

  6. I've read the book, but wouldn't mind a free one to pass along as a gift! I'll send people on over to put their names in the basket, too!

  7. I've read the first chapter on line, and would love to be able to finish it off. Especially over Chirstmas break.

  11. I hope I win! I have been waiting and waiting to read your book! Does a fellow American living the Canadian life qualify?


  12. HELLO!
    I just happened across your website this morning, very nice!

    My wife is going through a rough time right now, our daughter just turned 18 and wants her freedom so badly! My wife is hanging on for dear life because she fears for some of the choices that our daughter is making and probably will be making. So I guess all of that to say, we would covet your prayers and it would be great to win a copy of your book for my wife! Ron Reffett

    Thank You!

  13. Hey Nicole!

    Wow... Sometimes it's still weird to not call you "Mrs. Baart" or "Senora Baart"!
    Congrats on the publishing of your new book! I read the bits that were posted on your site and it looks really good! Hopefully I'll get a chance to read it sometime between the craziness of having my own family :)

    Congrats again and all the best:)


  14. What a nice give-away. I'd love to enter. Isaac and I share the same birthday...except I have about 36 years on him. Thanks so much!

  15. I picked your book of the "new books shelf" at the library on a whim and read it in a day. Loved it! Loved it! and when I read your bio I was even more excited.... Currently my husband and I are waiting for the Ethiopian courts to process our paperwork so we can bring home our beautiful little boy. We have had our referral since July and had to wait through the court closure. Adoption is waiting waiting isn't. Anyway...I am always happy to find new authors.
    Please enter me in your drawing.


  16. After seeing the great review of After the Leaves Fall on Carrie's blog (With All That I've Been Given), I've been eagerly awaiting a chance to get a copy! I would appreciate being entered into your drawing.

    Thank you, and happy birthday and happy 'gotcha' day to your precious little ones!

  17. Please enter me in your contest, Nicole. I'll tell my friends about it, too.

  20. I haven't had the chance to read your book but I would love to have a copy and read it.

    Thanks for sharing your gift with others. God bless.
