Week of Book Love CONTEST- Day One

Legendary Indian Worry Dolls
Don't worry, be happy!
Riding on the tails of Valentine's Day with its theme of love, this CONTEST celebrates a love for books and a glimpse at a very special book to me--my upcoming debut book, Secrets of the King's Daughter, arriving in a couple weeks. Each day February 15-20 you will have the opportunity to learn something new about my book and enter to win a signed copy.
HOW: It's easy to enter. Simply visit and "Like" my Author Facebook Page and leave a comment there or on my blog that answers the question of the day. Sharing this post is optional but appreciated. One comment per question will go into the drawing for the prize. That's a total of six opportunities to enter to win! Ready?

Today we'll learn something about the book's title, Secrets of the King's Daughter. Fictional Princess Karlinah is the eldest daughter of King Lamoni, a Lamanite king from the Book of Mormon in about 90 A.D. She hides a secret that causes her great worry. From the back liner: "She is not so easily convinced by the words of Ammon--especially when repentance means confessing her crime." What part does Karlinah play in her young husband's demise? That is an intriguing secret indeed.

The first question involves worry. Karlinah worries that repenting may be cause her own death. She worries about whom she will have to marry. And more worries. Karlinah needs a Worry Doll (pictured above). There is a legend amongst the Highland Indian Villages of Guatemala that if you have a problem, you share it with the worry doll. Before going to bed, tell one worry to each doll, then place them beneath your pillow. While you sleep, the dolls will take your worries away. So, what worries you? Silly or serious, share a worry by making a comment. Perhaps you will feel lighter too!
