Giveaway: Princess Adelina

I’ve mentioned our book in the past, and I hope you noticed the banner in the sidebar.  Now we’re ready to show you the site:

Princess Adelina: an ancient Christian tale of beauty and bravery

This is an edited and updated reprint of an old book that we found at a library sale a few years ago.  Our family read it, worked on it, and found a publisher who designed the new cover and made it all happen.  Are you wondering who published it, and how we found them?  Did you really have to ask?

It’s already A BEST SELLER at Vision Forum, and we’re appropriately elated.  We’re working right now on getting authorization to send free review copies to several volunteers, but in meantime I’d like to have a giveaway.  Here’s how to enter:


  1. Leave a comment to enter once.
  2. Blog about the book to enter again.  Please be sure to include a link to this post or to our Princess Adelina site.  Feel free to use the banner.  We’re quite pleased with it.  🙂  Just come back and leave a second comment to tell us that you blogged it.
  3. Did you already order and read it? Post or email a review to be entered a third time, with our hearty thanks!  Please leave a comment to tell me if you post it to your own blog.
  4. Buy a copy of Princess Adelina directly from us to be entered again. You can use the button below or visit our Princess Adelina site and buy it there.  It’s just $18 (the same as Vision Forum), and shipping is FREE inside the US.
  5. Grab the code to put our banner in your own sidebar (find it in our sidebar under the banner) and leave a comment telling me you did it to enter yet again.  With our thanks, of course.

Are we crazy for allowing up to 5 entries per person?  I’m planning on actually writing and cutting out a little slip of paper for each entry.  I would love to be overwhelmed by the sheer number of entries!  Come on, I can take it!


  1. Could you tell me the reading level for this book? I would like to give as gifts but need to know which children would be able to read it.
