Debut Author Giveaway Hop

7 Jun

I’ve been waiting for the Debut Author Giveaway Hop for a while now and I’ll tell you in a minute why, but first I’d like to thank Kathy @ I’m A Reader Not A Writer for all her hard work for once again to make this event happen.

So back to business. I thought a lot about whom I’d host and what book to give away. I remember  back in the day when I could finally call myself a debut author with the release of my first book titled Hidden Heart. 15 months later, 2 full novels and a short story (as part of an anthology) I no longer hold the title, but I’m happy to have found someone who is an incredible person, generous, fun, determined and whose debut novel will come out end of this month.

I chose Marie Tillman as the author to honor today. Her first book The Letter is a memoir depicting her journey through life and healing since the death of her husband Pat Tillman, the NFL player giving up a successful career to become an Army Ranger, who ultimately lost his life while in Afghanistan. I read The Letter and was completely surprised by Marie’s style, gracious, humble and riveting. It became quickly one of my favorite books. My reviews is posted on GoodReads, Netgalley, B&N and as soon as Amazon permits it will go up on the site as well. You can find it here.

I also have an interview with her that it will come up on my site in a few days (yay!).

So, if you’re interested in winning an e-copy of this memoir, please fill out the form below. I will announce the winner on 06/14, the day after the hop is over. Good luck everyone!
