"DREAMING of BOOKS" Blog Hop

I'm hosting a stop on "The Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop" which runs from 12:01 AM Friday, January 14th to 11:59 PM Monday, January 17th. All 180 participating blogs are linked together below, so you can click and easily hop from blog to blog. Each host is sponsoring a different prize, and each has a different question or requirement for entry.

I'm an author writing a historical fiction series titled, "FREE MEN AND DREAMERS." It's set against the almost forgotten period of the War of 1812, when life and freedom were fragile, and when America was jsut beginning to realize the dream of "One Nation Under God. Here are what some readers have said about my books:


“Oh, Say Can You See,” crackles with tension and suspense. Although I know how the Battle of 1812 ended, I found myself staying up late at night and turning pages in an urgent attempt to find out what happened to the country and to the characters I came to know and love. This book is a magnificent love story—love between man and woman, love between friends, love between siblings, and ultimately, love between citizens and their country. Braden Bell, author of "The Road Show"
***

“I'm awestruck at L.C. Lewis's mastery of detail-rich prose.”
Marsha Ward, author of “Man From Shenandoah” and other compelling westerns.
***

"Once started, I had to read the whole thing through, and many parts brought tears to my eyes." (Ernest Runge, a Viet Nam veteran and history enthusiast)

I hope that makes you want to dig in! If so, then you'll love the prize I'm offering--a brand new, nylon, American flag, and an autographed copy of your choice of either book one: "Dawn's Early Light," to begin the series; or book four, "Oh Say Can You See?" which was written to serve as a stand-alone read about the writing of the "Star-Spangled Banner."

You can enter up to four times, but each entry MUST be submitted individually to be counted.

1st entry: be, or become a follower of this blog.

2nd entry: Watch my book trailer and leave a comment at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQYHvfQeZvE

3rd entry: Post the above link to the book trailer to your Facebook or Twitter page

4th entry: "Friend" me on Facebook and tell me your favorite reading-time snack.

Enjoy the hop!
