Most of these plans involve daydreams of the Property Brothers and expensive granite countertops. Ahem.
|"We can totally build you a bookcase, girl."|
Then, I snap to, and think about the things I CAN do. One of these things is to clear out some space on the old bookshelves, which are full and sagging with the weight of many wonderful words.
It just so happens that A FALLING STAR is now available to add on Goodreads.
And lo, an idea for spring cleaning + a chance to talk about my new book is born.
Here's what we're going to do. Everyone who adds A FALLING STAR to their Goodreads "want to read" shelf will be eligible to win an advanced copy of A FALLING STAR and a book from my spring cleaning shelf. We'll do a couple of these, okay?
For this first round, the book up for grabs is Andrea Barrett's collection of short stories, Ship Fever.
Ship Fever won the 1996 National Book Award, and is just gut-wrenchingly beautiful. It combines many of the things I love--historical settings (the 19th century), love stories, and SCIENTISTS.
All you have to do to win Ship Fever and an advanced copy of a A FALLING STAR, is add A FALLING STAR to your Goodreads shelf. Click here to do that. Go on. It'll only take a second.
There you go. You're in. I'll announce the winner next Friday, April 4th!
Stay tuned for the next giveaway!
And if you're the impatient sort, you can order your own advanced copy of A FALLING STAR via the Carolina Wren Press website. Click here for that.
