Imagine not having any books to read. What would we do without books to brighten our days, ease us into dreamland at night, carry us away to places we'd never go without them, not to mention raise our pulses, engage our senses, and enrich our hearts and minds? I know I'm singing to the choir masters here, because nobody loves books more than writers. Nobody has more fun with stories or more passion for well-used words.
So to celebrate all who are or want to be writers—that is, ahem, US—I get to do a fantastic book giveaway today. My critique sisters, Heather McCorkle and Karlene Petitt, have each written wonderful books. I know, because I got to read them at early stages (and at later stages, too). I am so excited to say that one lucky reader of this blog will win a copy of each of their books:
FLIGHT FOR CONTROL is an aviation thriller and a great read! (R-rated, as Karlene likes to tell people so they don't buy it for their young teens.) It will get your heart pounding not only with HOT love scenes, but from fear for what might happen to innocent people who get in the way of a man on a mission to achieve ultimate power. You'll pull, every step of the way, for the woman who has to stop him, and you'll love the friendships that make all the difference to the outcome.
Karlene, as you may know, has been an international airline pilot for many years, and she knows what she's talking about in the world of commercial aviation. You'll love the book, but you might not want to read it while you're a passenger on an airplane!
And then there's TO RIDE A PUCA. This is a wonderful YA historical fantasy/romance set in the last days of the druids in Ireland as the country is invaded by Vikings. The protagonist is a brave young druid warrior—a girl of sixteen. She discovers her deepest self, her heart's desire, and love, all in the ravages of war. You will zip through this book as the love story develops, and by the end you'll yearn along with Neala (protagonist) for the survival of the druids and the land they love. It's a fun, engaging way to learn about ancient Ireland's history and druid stories, too.
Heather says that of all the books she's written, this is the one she absolutely had to write. It comes straight from her heart, and I think you'll see that as the pages fly by.
To win an e-book copy of FLIGHT FOR CONTROL and of TO RIDE A PUCA , just leave a comment on this blog. I'll draw the winner's name a week from now. (Both books are, of course, available on B&N.com and Amazon and other book sites, and you can check out more detail about them by going to Karlene's blog, Flight To Success, and Heather's blog, Author Heather McCorkle.) Thanks, and good luck!
Linda, Thank you so much for the support and the wonderful post. I'm looking forward to sharing this book with a lucky winner. And Heather's To Ride a Puca... incredible. I too read this in the early stages, and waiting for my book in the mail.ReplyDelete
I love the fact that you are sharing the gift of reading. Thank you so much Linda.
You're so welcome, Karlene. It is sooo my pleasure to talk about your book.Delete
An aviation thriller?! That sounds interesting.ReplyDelete
It IS, Michael. You are now entered to win it :) Thanks so much for commenting.Delete
I was wondering whether you would be happy to put up a link in my monthly series called “Books You Love”. The idea is for people to link up posts about a book they loved – it doesn’t have to be one they just posted about. It could be an old fave. I am hoping we will end up with a nice collection of books that can go on our reading lists. Here is the link Books You Loved June EditionReplyDelete
What a great idea, Carole. I've left a comment on your blog. Thanks for dropping in!Delete
Thanks for mentioning your favourite book. If you haven't done a post on it yet, no problem. People will be able to find out about it via your comment. The Mr Linky thing seems only to accept url's of individual posts rather than a home page. Have a great week.Delete
Ooh, I'm intrigued by both! I hope I win! :)ReplyDelete
You would love them, Jinnie. Fingers crossed for you!ReplyDelete
