Blondie's Wrath

Wrath By Kirkus MacGowan 
Giveaway Contest Win $25 Amazon Gift Card and a Copy of Wrath

I normally don't promote anything on my blog but water and the novel I'm working on so this is unusual to say the least. However, Kirkus MacGowan, a good friend from twitter, is celebrating the launch of his book, Wrath, on August 28. Kirkus is one of the biggest supporters of my writing career so I hope you give him a warm welcome and take advantage of his contest.

Kirkus is giving away twenty FREE eBook copies of Wrath (A John Reeves Novel) in a format of your choice, and a $25 gift card to a random blog commenter. If we have a huge outpouring of support, he will increase the number of free copies accordingly.

The best part? It’s so easy! Just leave a comment on this blog post to enter the contest. Multiple comments will not gain you extra entries. However, you may gain extra entries by commenting on other blogs participating in the Wrath giveaway. Not sure what to say? Tell me what you think the significance of the blue rose on the cover of Wrath is or tell me what book you are reading right now. 

The contest ends at midnight, August 26, EST. Kirkus time will post the winners on his blog on the 27 along with the blog they commented on. On that post, he’ll tell the winners how to contact him for their winnings.

What readers are saying about Wrath
I am lucky enough to have an advance copy and I can't get it out of my head! Wrath grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go! A few other readers checked out Wrath and here’s what they’re saying:
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!! The only problem I have with your books 
is that I can’t put them down!”

In my opinion it was even better than the first one!!”
Like Criminal Minds on paper!”

My Guest Blog

After you've commented on this blog, please check out my guest blog on Kirkus' site, called Stealing Time, that I wrote last month: Stealing Time Guest Blog. In it I talk about my struggle as a working parent. Kirkus has a lot of great articles on parenting and writing so poke around a bit if you have time.
