Two of my favorite writing people in the whole wide world are both celebrating their book launches and copies of two phenomenal reads are up for grabs.
First up, is Susan Oloier's FRACTURED. A story of love and loss, Susan tackles the subject of miscarriage and a failing marriage with gripping emotional honesty. It's raw. And it's wonderful.
When Anna Kincaid has a miscarriage, her world comes crashing to a halt. Grief overwhelms her life, and she combats it with prescription medication. Her husband Lloyd does not see the event as tragic. In fact, not ready to be a father, he is relieved at the news. This creates a chasm in their marriage and splits them apart. Both Anna and Lloyd find themselves moving in different directions. Anna finds hope in a young, male colleague named Ben and comfort in her narcotics. Lloyd loses himself in work. Will their marriage survive the miscarriage, or will it always remain fractured?

You might remember my interview with the fantabulous, Rachel Eddey. Well,
Rachel's memoir, RUNNING OF THE BRIDE, will be released on May 15th! HUZZAH!
To celebrate, her publisher, Globe Pequot Press is giving away a wedding cake and a signed copy of RUNNING OF THE BRIDE. Click HERE to ENTER.
When Rachel’s handsome studio exec boyfriend proposes on the Sex and the City movie set, she can’t fathom the dizzying adventure ahead. Accepting a once-in-a-lifetime venue deal helps their budget but puts them on a crash course to get married in just four months—and time isn’t their only challenge. They battle a wacky host of vendors, including a hair stylist who fakes a car accident and a makeup artist channeling Marilyn Manson, all while testing their love amid tastings and tulle.
Using her nervous energy productively, Rachel enters every contest she can find, winning diamond earrings, a honeymoon, a photographer, and two wedding gowns. Her pop culture obsession lands the wedding party on two hit reality TV shows. There’s just one problem as the clock ticks down: Her staunch perfectionism and fear of dancing threaten to derail everything. She has to redefine perfect and embrace the mistakes—or risk losing it all.
Please take your seats. The wedding is about to begin.
