June Full Moon Book Giveaway

June Full Moon

This morning's moon, a supermoon, is at its fullest at 7:32 AM EDT. It is the closest moon to the earth and appears the largest moon in the sky for the year. The next supermoon will be on August 10, 2014.

What is the nickname for the June full moon?

Hint: June's full moon was named by the Algonquin tribes because they believed it signaled the time to gather ripening fruit

Full moons are important to the Highland Gardens series. To celebrate the June full moon, I will give away a PDF gift copy of Just Beyond the Garden Gate to two lucky readers, commenting on June 23, 2013 and answering the question:  What is the nickname for the June full moon?

Just Beyond the Garden Gate

A Highland Gardens Novel

Available at Amazon and B&N

The Scottish Highlands—a place where faeries and brownies and other fae creatures dance through time. On occasion, so do mere mortals.Determined to regain her royal status, a banished faerie princess accepts a challenge from the High-Queen of the Fae to unite an unlikely couple while the clan brownie attempts to thwart her.

Passion ignites when a faerie-shove propels burned-out business consultant Laurie Bernard through the garden gate, back through time, and into the embrace of Patrick MacLachlan. The arrogant clan chief doesn’t know what to make of the lass in his arms, especially when he recognizes the brooch she wears as the one his stepmother wore when she and his father disappeared.

With the fae interfering at every opportunity, the couple must learn to trust one another while they battle an enemy clan, expose a traitor within their midst and discover the true fate of the missing parents. Can they learn the most important truth—love transcends time?

Journey from the lush gardens of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to the Scottish Highlands of 1509 with Just Beyond the Garden Gate.

  1. Hey,Dawn, is it the Super Moon? Or is this full moon called that because it was a full moon on the longest day of the year, the summer solstice? It was (and still is!) pretty amazing!


  2. Earth sky called it a super supermoon. From what I read it is a supermoon because it's the closest that it will be to the earth for the year. I got up to do some work at 3:00 A.M. and it was beautiful. I expect it will be for most of the month.

  3. I found Full Strawberry Moon and Rose Moon for Europe as well as Supermoon. I saw it last night and ie was beautiful and so bright.

  4. Hi, Leona! Thanks for the visit! Yes, the June full moon goes by several names, though it won't be a supermoon next year. I saw it too and tried to take photos, but they didn't do it justice.
