March Drawing # 3!

I apologize for being so late in posting this drawing! Boy, was it ever a busy weekend—chock full of company and family events and very enjoyable—but now I’m behind and a bit crazy!

The drawing this week follows the usual format: Leave a comment on this post to be entered to win a copy of the new Heritage edition of Wind of the Spirit, Book 3 of the series. And, of course, if blogger gives you grief and you can’t leave a comment, you can message me on Facebook to be added to the drawing.

This week I’m offering another bonus. In addition to Wind of the Spirit, the winner will also receive both book 1, Daughter of Liberty, and book 2, Native Son! So you’ll have the first three books of the series for yourself or to give as a gift!

For those who want to earn extra entries in the drawing, we’re going to do a game—sort of a scavenger hunt. Four questions are below. You’ll find the answers on one of my websites, either or Each right answer will earn you 1 entry in the drawing in addition to the one you get for leaving a comment. Please email the answers you found to me at americanpatriotseries[at]gmail[dot]com or message me on Facebook at so no one else who enters can see them. Don’t want anybody to cheat. LOL!

Now get to digging!

Extra Entry Questions

1. Give the name of the artist who painted “Patrick Henry Before the Virginia House of Burgesses,” depicting Patrick Henry's "If this be treason, make the most of it!" speech against the Stamp Act of 1765

2. In Wind of the Spirit, which character accompanies Elizabeth on the journey into Ohio Territory to find Carleton? You only need to name the main one of the three men who accompanied her, though I’ll accept the others too.

Who said “We Recognize No Sovereign but God, and no King but Jesus!”

When and where did my ancestor Jacob Hochstetler arrive in this country with his wife and 2 small children?

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by, Mary Jo! You're entered. :-)

  3. Well, I must say that your writings sound extremely interesting and it would be lovely to win them since I never win anything and it would provide a very convenient way of receiving and reading them - I'm not too good at puzzles late on a Friday afternoon so I'll pass the games and the opportunity to win more entries. If the Lord wants me to win with the one entry I do have, that is what will happen and if not, there is obviously a more worthy and deserving winner out there. In any event I wish you, Joan, continued success in your writing and thank you for this opportunity to comment.

  4. Thank you, David! I like your reasoning, and I'm so glad you stopped by and entered. I have you on the list. :-)

  5. Yes, please enter me into this giveaway. I'm not familiar with your writings as yet...but I intend to! I enjoy historical fiction and would love to win a book of your writing. Thanks for this enticing giveaway and the chance to win a great read.
