Happy Birthday Elvis Book Giveaway!

A lot of you know that I love Elvis. I have since I was a little girl and my grandma used to play his records on her record player. I'd sit in the floor next to the speakers and be lulled to sleep by his smooth voice.

When I decided to write a book series set in Memphis, I HAD to tie Elvis in somehow:

In All Shook Up, the main character works at Graceland. The characters even run in the Elvis Week 5K that I run each year!

In Can't Help Falling in Love, one of the characters has some interesting Elvis memorabilia.

Such fun to put a little Elvis into those books!

And since today would've been his birthday, I'll celebrate by giving away a set of books to one lucky winner!

To enter, just leave a comment telling me your favorite Elvis song/movie/story and be sure to leave your email address. I'll choose a winner on FRIDAY, JANUARY 11.

Hi, I really enjoy your books. My favorite Elvis song would probably be "Can't Help Falling In Love." But I also love his versio of "Here Comes Santa Claus!"

Thank you!

My Favorite Elvis Song is "Blue Christmas". My great aunt who is a huge Elvis fan baby sit me when I was little and would play Elvis songs to get me to sleep for my nap.

I saw the musical " All Shook Up". It was awesome. It is a must see.

Tina said...

Has to be Blue Christmas. I've always loved that song.

I too have been a fan of Elvis since I was a little girl. I used to watch Blue Hawaii every weekend and then I found "Loving You" and watched that one about every day! I never could pick a favorite song, I like so many!

I like Jailhouse Rock & Love Me Tender. I remember watching Elvis on t.v. when I was little with my grandparents. Thanks for the chance to win some of your books!

Not possible to pick one song or movie. I love them ALL.

My favorite song is I did it my way. I loved his gospel music too. It is hard to pick just one song.

Hubby does a great Elvis singing voice, so I don't know if I could choose just one song...I honestly love to hear him sing them!

There's way to many to choose just one. Love the gospel songs.

My favorite song is "Love Me Tender".

Y'all had some great answers! Loved reading these. I'm like many of you though--I can't choose just one favorite. I love his Christmas and Gospel music, as well as his classic hits. :)

I used a random number generator to choose a winner...and am happy to announce that Shelly is the winner of the books! I'll contact her via email for a snail mail address.

My favorite song is Teddy Bear, because it reminds me of my boyfriend.

My favorite Elvis song is "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" Just finished reading A Wedding Date in Hot Springs. Since I grew up there, it was fun to reminisce about the places I know so well.

I'll go with a classic - blue suede shoes!


Jennie W said...

I just finished both books - awesome! Are we going to get Jade's story soon?

Jennie W said...

Oops, for the Elvis requirement....I like a lot of his songs, but I guess, Blue Suede Shoes comes to mind first. :)
