And if you FIND it and PHOTOGRAPH it there in the store, then SHARE the photo on social media Facebook and/or Twitter, naming your location and TAGGING me (on Twitter, @barbarasissel, on Facebook, Barbara Taylor Sissel, Author) you will be entered to win one of five $20.00 AMAZON gift cards!

Exciting News! Crooked Little Lies on sale September 1 at 1700 Walmart Stores!


I'm thrilled to announce that as of September 1, 2015, CROOKED LITTLE LIES will be on sale at 1700 Walmart stores in various locations across the U.S.! And to commemorate the event and add to the celebration, I'm organizing an old-time TREASURE HUNT! Remember those, where folks were divided into teams and given a list of items to find, and the team that got all the items on the list
first won the grand prize?  Well, I'm making this treasure hunt way simpler. You only have to find one item: a copy of CROOKED LITTLE LIES, in one location: on the shelf at your local WALMART store, then follow these easy steps to be entered to win 1 of 5 $20 Amazon gift cards:

First: Beginning on September 1(please be mindful that your local store may get the book on the shelves a little later than September 1 - the date can vary by store) look for copies of Crooked Little Lies in your local Walmart store.

Second: Take a photograph of the book and yourself INSIDE THE STORE, post it on social media and tag me:
FACEBOOK: @ Barbara Taylor Sissel, author

TWITTER FEED: @barbarasissel

Please include the location of the store where you found copies.

That's all you have to do to be entered to win ONE of FIVE $20 AMAZON gift cards. The drawing for 5 winners will be held on September 30 and I'll announce the winners on October 1.

Where do authors and readers meet? Fairmount Community Library Event!

Even Elijah was held rapt. He was so good!
Sara Karashin, Director, with son Elija

 I had a fantastic time, sharing CROOKED LITTLE LIES on Thursday, August 13, at the launch party and fundraiser at the Fairmount Community Library. I want to thank Sara Karashin and the other library board members and volunteers who helped organize the event. Thanks so much, too, to my niece, Heather Wilson for putting together the gift baskets that were given away in the drawing. Donations for the baskets were much appreciated and included everything from wine to books to spa services, good food and gift cards. Thank you to Mary Elizabeth Sheehan of Yoga Potential and John Marsh of Sera Dining and Wine, both located in Fort Worth, for their donations. And congratulations to winners, Rhonda Sanders, Valerie Bigler and Kris Savage. Huge thanks to all who attended. It was a lovely evening!

We had a lively discussion after the reading
