Rally Round Green GIVEAWAY

About the Book:

Green survived a tornado, but now the town faces a new storm—one that threatens the schools!

As Green continues to recover from a horrendous tornado, newlyweds Lois and Chris just want to return to a normal life in their home on Route Two.
But even more threats to Green loom on the horizon. The state of Louisiana announces plans to close Green’s schools, which will put Chris out of work and end a long-standing tradition of community pride. Lois and Chris know the loss will crush the community and harm students forced to travel more than an hour to classes. Then there’s that new highway that’s creeping even closer . . . But Green has another tradition: Rallying around each other. Newspaper owner Lois, Mayor Eva, and college students unite to fight the bureaucrats, with some surprising—and unexpected results.

Judy was kind enough to share some of her thoughts with us:

How long have you known you wanted to be an author
Since my first visit to the bookmobile in elementary school. I have always loved putting words together. I've kept a journal since I was nine and still have all of them. I was the editor of The Barret Banner in fifth grade.

When a reader gets done with your book, what do you want them to come away with?
One of the things I love about fiction is that each person comes away with something different, depending on where he or she is in life. I do hope that my books encourage and entertain and help readers pause to think about enjoying each day more.

Any last thoughts for your readers?

Slow down and enjoy each day more. Don't rush and fret so much that life slips by. Have more fun.

And how can they connect with you?

I love to visit with readers! They can reach me through my website at or on Facebook or on Twitter @judypchristie. I enjoy Skyping and having conference calls with book clubs. I lead church retreats and workshops and am happy to consider all invitations.
