books are hereI know Thursdays usually focus on something Appalachian, but hey, When Silence Sings is an Appalachian story, so that counts. Right?

Thanks to everyone who entered to win a copy of my sixth novel by sharing what you’d like six of. It was such fun reading and responding to all your comments. Pygmy goats was one of my very favorite answers! You’re braver than I am.

The most popular response was some variation on six days of vacation. Apparently we all need a break! There were also quite a few of you longing for six more days with someone you love who’s passed on. Shoot, that’s why I write books, so I can visit the “old folks” I grew up knowing who are gone now.

Several of you also wished for six more books (some even specified MY books–you’re the best!). And cups of coffee or tea not to mention chocolate.

But it was Pam K. with her cooler weather and a wish for six more sweaters to wear to work who ended up being the winner of a copy of novel #6! Congratulations Pam–email your mailing address to sarah@sarahloudinthomas.com and I’ll get your book out to you.

Wish I could send you ALL this latest story, but even if you didn’t win I hope you get a chance to visit Thurmond, WV, with Colman and Serepta. And thanks for chiming in!
