holiday page-turner giveaway...

And the Holiday Giveaway train continues to roll.

This week, I'm excited to gift one lucky Moments reader with an autographed copy of Raised By The Mistress: My Mother, Her Lover & Me by Jamilah B. Creekmur.

I have to tell you, I've enjoyed reading a lot of great books this year. But this memoir from the perspective of a child who is aware of the fact that her mom was a sidechick BEFORE it become such an acceptable way of life (looks directly at Alicia Keys) is fantastic. Written with New York Times bestselling author, Aliya S. King; Jamilah keeps it all the way real from beginning to end.

Oh and wait on it.... the book even includes chapters written by her mom and Mr. Wayne, the man her mom was intimately involved with for almost 20 years.


Trust me, even if you're not a "reader" you'll still get caught up in the drama of this book.

Here's what you've got to do to win your own autographed copy:

  2. The kindest thing I've done is to help out a friend when she really needed me.

  3. the kindest thing i've done this year is pushed my cousin to pursue a dream she's been scared to reach for for a long time.

  4. the kindest thing I have done this year, was treat my sister to brunch/dinner/breakfast/shopping or lent a sympathetic ear anytime she was feeling down.

  5. It wouldn't be kind of me to go bragging about how kind I've been, now would it? :)

  6. Can I just co-sign what Danita just said??? :-D

  7. An elderly couple was walking and it started to rain lightly. I pulled over and gave them my large polo umbrella (I miss that umbrella! Lol). The husband appeared so grateful; its always the little things we take for granted. -L.Jones
