January is my birthday month! Giveaway and Birthday Wish

Happy Birthday Month to me! It’s a milestone birthday. Can you guess how old I will be?

For my birthday this year I have two wishes:

  1. To sign my updated will
  2. To sell/give away books

I think I have the first wish figured out (it’s complicated getting a will signed apparently because you need two witnesses and a notary willing to sign wills).

The second wish is something I’m hoping you as my reader can help me with. You can enter my giveaway and tell all your friends below and you can also buy one of my books. While supplies last I will sell any of my four novels for just $10 (this includes sales tax and media mail shipping using re purposed mailers within the US not including Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and Alaska). Every purchase will include something special in the mailer along with the book of your choice.

Just send $10 via Paypal with the book title of your choice and the address you want it mailed to paypal.me/rachelauthorbarnard

For the giveaway, you will get a copy of Donuts in an Empty Field by Rachel Barnard as well as Vanessa’s Book of Awesome Things and Nichole’s Book of Practical Things via media mail in a re-purposed mailer. For every additional five books that I sell during the month of January, I will draw an additional winner of the giveaway.

Seattle Specific Saturdays: Rachel Barnard’s 25th Birthday Book Bash!

Stay tuned for the video of my stand up comedy!


Thanks for coming to my birthday book bash everyone! It was so cool to have 15 people come out to celebrate my 25th with me and to bring customers to a lovely local business (St. James Espresso). Thanks for my wonderful cards and gifts and I have some cool new books to read now!

I had a really fun time raffling off those neat mugs and doing my short comedy routine (it was not that bad)!  The following photos courtesy of Paul (the one in the suit)
