Win Bleachers by John Grisham

In book giveaways, contests on August 25, 2008 at 7:25 am

So, here’s another one of those duplicate books…shame on me, I know.  But, my disorganization is good for all of you because it means a chance for free books.

This is the hardcover version of this book – and this one I have read and loved it.  If you haven’t read it, or don’t know what it’s about, here’s the synopsis:

High school all-American Neely Crenshaw was probably the best quarterback ever to play for the legendary Messina Spartans.  Fifteen years have gone by since those glory days, and Neely has come home to Messina to bury Coach Eddie Rake, the man who molded the Spartans into and unbeatable football dynasty.

Now, as Coach Rake’s “boys” sit in the bleachers waiting for the dimming field lights to signal his passing, they replay the old games, relive the old glories, and try to decide once and for all whether they love Eddie Rake – or hate him.  For Neely Crenshaw, a man who must finally forgive his coach – and himself- before he can get on with his life, the stakes are especially high. 

How do you win, you ask?  Couldn’t be easier!

Leave a comment for 1 entry – please remember to leave contact information so I know how to get in touch with you.

Blog about this contest with a link back for 5 additional entries – that’s right – 5!  Just make sure to let me know where you are posting so I can check it out:)

I will draw a winner on Sunday, August 31st, and will post about it on Monday.  Good luck everyone!

The Pink Forest: A Woman’s Intimate Confessions by Dana Dorfman

In book giveaways, book review, contests, Pump up Your Book Promotion on May 7, 2008 at 8:15 am

ISBN 13: 978-0-9798592-0-5

311 Pages

Banderae Publishing

Excerpt from the back of the book:

The Pink Room is flying silk and a canvas of lace.  It is a magic gleam and a twinkling eye.  It is playful glances, soft pecks upon the lips, and swirls of eye-catching smiles.  It is endless stretches of bed ruffles and flowing satin shets strewn across a candle-lit floor.  It is thick pillows, the coolness of moonlight, and giggle-strewn chatter in the mist of rose-silk petals.

But more than anything, The Pink Forest is about one woman wishing upon life for the courage to feel her enchanted self.  Caught in the gusts of emotion, her small draped figure lands on the tree of possibility where she become an amorous creature.  Glistening with intimate confessions, she blushes the earth and wanders into The Pink Forest.

 I have to be totally honest.  I really wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book.  But the author drew me in with her lyrical writing and descriptions that left little to the imagination, and I truly had a hard time putting this book down.  After all, it isn’t every day that you get to delve into the most personal and intimate confessions of a woman searching for her enchanted self. 

This book was able to evoke so many emotions in me as I traveled with her on her journey to find her enchanted self and the revelations she makes on the way.  Prepare yourself for a book that presses the boundaries of your imagination and sensual side to see what it might take to find and release your enchanted self, after all, who says your conscience ALWAYS has to be your guide. 

About the author:

 Dorfman was raised as an only child and has been writing since the age of four. She graduated from the University of Southern California and considers herself a “life writer” who is able to tap into the blush of the earth.

Dorfman resides in Los Angeles with her mystical spirit.

The Pink Forest is available at , ,  and bookstores everywhere.

So, I was poking around Maw Books – one of my new favorite sites (see previous posts) and she did a cool blog entry about all of the people that had visited her blog in the last month (yours truly included of course).  I wish I would have found her sooner, but better late than never.  So, I clicked on her very first visitor listed and came across a book giveaway.  Honestly, this is one of the best parts about being in the world of blogging (at least for me).  So, without further ado:
