There will be tons of ‘What She Knew’ Signature Prizes and giveaways!

Today’s opportunity through Sunday, that’s August 1-5, leave a comment below with your favorite quote and you’ll be entered into the giveaway drawing. No purchase necessary for this one!

Also when you buy a book, in any form, and send us a screen shot of the receipt, we’ll enter you for a prize. You’ll love it! These prizes will make great Christmas gifts if you already have a copy of the book for yourself. Just email it to whatsheknew@gmail.com.

Watch for postings and participate via Facebook, Twitter and right here on our blog. We are so excited!! As if you couldn’t tell!!

We will be partnering with two of Marilyn’s favorite charities: St Jude’s Children’s Hospital and March of Dimes. Each charity will receive a portion of all the proceeds we make on book sales for the whole month of August. We have TV and radio interviews scheduled so be sure and tune in! And, we are hosting book signings in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

Don’t worry, we will keep you all informed on the exact dates and times for all of the above.

Some of the What She Knew Signature Prizes are:

~ Marilyn inspired gift sets (pink purses and goodies) and What She Knew book bags ~

~ What She Knew bookmarks ~

Just to name a few!!

The grand prize (to be announced) will include an hour of face time with us via Skype plus a collectors edition of “What She Knew” signed and no longer available to the public. You’ll get to ask us questions and we’ll answer about anything writing related. All you need to do, is purchase a book (any format) and email us a screen copy of your receipt! That’s all, easy peasy!

As a bonus, if you order a paperback book you will receive two entry’s and if you order a hardback book you will receive three entry’s. For eReader books, you will receive one entry per purchase. Remember, these make nice gifts and the more you order, the more entry’s you will have!!

  2. Wow! This is a hard choice, girls, but I finally chose my favorite comment out of all of Marilyn’s quotes, I enjoy. Per Marilyn, my friend…….”I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes and I am out of control at times and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worse then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” I’ve got to throw this one in, just for ‘grins’. “What do I wear to bed? Why Chanel No. 5, of course!” ( I do love this one!)

  3. She had so many good ones! It was hard to choose! But for today, I chose this one, because it it where I am in my life at the moment.
    Marilyn Monroe quotes“Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together” 
    ― Marilyn Monroe

    Another of my favorites is “All little girls should be told they are pretty, even if they aren’t.” 
    ― Marilyn Monroe . I like this one because beauty is really on the inside, and shines through to the outside, no matter how the outside is structured.

  4. “I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle.”
    Marilyn Monroe
    I recently learned that Marilyn helped Ela Fitzgerald get a booking at the Macambo in Hollywood when it was not popular for women of color to perform there. She promised she would be there on the front row every night Ela performed and she did, generating lots of publicity.Ela said it made her career. This made me love Marilyn even more and gave clarity to the quote up above.
