One Week in Hawaii Travel Giveaway

This is it. Our book, ONE WEEK IN HAWAII, releases today on all major retailers (Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo). I've got a rafflecopter set up to win a GIFT PACK OF AWESOMENESS to celebrate.

If you can remember all the way back to our origin story, the three authors and I met on twitter, so it's only fitting that following us on Twitter is part of this giveaway. But I'm pretty excited about YOUR COMMENTS below, telling me where you'd like to vacation this summer.

Spring Break, Take Me Away!

The worst part of being a grownup: no Spring Break. After years of being in school, and then years of working for schools, I grew accustomed to that sweet week of time off. Ah, and those two free weekends to bookend!

My mom and I always took mother-daughter trips during Spring Break. Starting when I was about ten (and my big brother was a normal teenage boy who was cool staying home and blowing things up with his nerdy friends), Mom and I would pack up, wave goodbye to Daddy and my brother, and go off together on little trips. They started out small with trips to Dallas (that was THE BIG CITY to me then) to go shopping and eventually we ended up in far-flung destinations. 

I say we revive this tradition, Mom! 

If you are similarly down-in-the-dumps about no such thing as a Spring Break--or if you're lucky enough to have a trip booked with your kiddos or friends--Goodreads is hosting a giveaway of ONE WEEK IN WYOMING
