My incredibly talented sister-in-law has recently published her second book in the "Checked" trilogy. If you have not yet heard about this series, here is a glimpse into what its all about...
"Callie spends countless hours staring at appliances to make sure they are really unplugged. She wastes obscene amounts of time checking for murderers in various corners of her house and entire sleepless nights performing pointless checking rituals. Then every spare minute is filled with inspecting doorknobs, chairs, floors, etc. for minuscule traces of germs. Oh, and she does all of this as she counts to three over and over again in her head. She does this every day. Without fail.
Dr. Blake just doesn’t fit into her schedule. Until he does. Until Callie begins to trust him. Until she starts to need him. And want him. And . . . "
I know I'm partial, but these books are fantastic and provide an all-too-real look at Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and its effects on those who suffer from it. As a romantic at heart, it also met every expectation I have of a romantic novel and then some. I truly CANNOT WAIT for the final book to come out!!! You can check out THIS LINK to purchase Checked (first novel) and Checked Again (second) for yourself!
As a promotion for these awesome books, I created these chalkboard bookmarks that you can make for yourself in a few, simple steps!
-mini bookmark (found in the jewelry section of most craft stores)
-chalkboard pendant (Hobby Lobby has just started selling really cute ones!)
-chalk or chalk marker
1. Using needle-nosed pliers, open split ring and place one end of the ring through the pendant.
2. Place the split ring through the hole at the top of the bookmark. Close the split ring using the pliers.
3. Decorate the bookmark using chalk or a chalk marker (chalk is removed easily using a wet paper towel and drying befor using again!)
Stay tuned for an awesome giveaway in July, where I will be including a chalkboard bookmark like this one, as well as a certain book that shall not be named (but you can probably guess) to place that bookmark inside!
