I’ve met many great people through this little blog of mine, and I’d like to introduce you to one of them today.
Her name is Sara J. Henry, and she is an AUTHOR: a real live, book coming in the blink of an eye, author!!
We met online decades ago, and then in real life last fall as she was driving through Oregon on her way to Vermont. (Her sense of direction is questionable.)
Now, as you all know I am very picky about what I read. I will not read ANYTHING that has won an award, or is written by someone who thinks too highly of himself. And if I even hear a whisper about the word Pulitzer, I run to the other side of the bookstore.
Sure, I stalk Stephen King, have every book he has ever WRITTEN, quote his “On Writing” so often people think I’m on his payroll; but he’s the exception to my “I only read crap” rule.
Sara sent me an advance copy of her novel “Learning to Swim.” I loved it.
Her writing flows in such a way that makes it a pleasure to read. I was hooked from the beginning, and loved it! And now I hope you will, as well.
I offer the hook, “If I’d blinked, I would have missed it. But I didn’t, and I saw something fall from the rear deck of the opposite ferry: a small, wide-eyed human face, in one tiny frozen moment, as it plummeted toward the water.”
I am able to offer TWO signed copies of her book. In order to win, please do one of the following:
1. Send a card in the mail to someone who needs a lift. Snail mail, you remember that, don’t you?
2. Tweet about this giveaway. (And flap your wings like you’re flying when you do.)
3. Tell me a funny story about Valentine’s Day and kids. Or you. Hell, just make me laugh.
4. Leave a comment letting me know if you did any or all of the above for an entry.
You can enter as many times as humanly possible. I will have Munchie choose the winner sometime next week!
