Pitch Wars Mentor Book Spotlight and Giveaway with Lisa Lewis Tyre!

Lisa Lewis Tyre Twitter | Website Lisa Lewis Tyre grew up in a small town in Tennessee surrounded by her crazy family and neighbors. She learned early on that not every child had a pet skunk, a dad that ran a bar in the front yard, or a neighbor that was so large his house had to be torn down to get him out. What else could she do but write? She is currently working on her 2nd novel, EIGHT DAY DAUGHTER (Nancy Paulsen Books), releasing Spring, 2017.   LAST IN A LONG LINE OF REBELS Amazon | Barnes & Noble Lou might be only twelve, but she’s never been one to take things sitting down. So when her Civil War-era house is about to be condemned, she’s determined to save it—either by getting it deemed a historic landmark or by finding the stash of gold rumored to be hidden nearby during the war. As Lou digs into the past, her eyes are opened when she finds that her ancestors ran the gamut of slave owners, renegades, thieves and abolitionists. Meanwhile, some incidents in her town show her that many Civil War era prejudices still survive and that the past can keep repeating itself if we let it. Digging into her past shows Lou that it’s never too late to fight injustice, and she starts to see the real value of understanding and exploring her roots. * “Accomplished debut. . . . Strong secondary characters, including Lou’s thrice-divorced flirtatious grandmother, help build the strong sense of small-town community. Tyre masterfully weaves historical details into Lou’s discoveries in ways that never feel facile, while deftly and satisfyingly resolving past and present puzzles.”—Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW Selected as a “Books All Young Georgians Should Read” by the Georgia Center for the Book, 2016   Giveaway!   Winner receives an Amazon or Barnes and Noble ebook.

Pitch Wars Mentor Book Spotlight and Giveaway with Laura Brown!

Laura Brown Website | Facebook | Twitter Laura Brown lives in Massachusetts with her quirky abnormal family. Her husband’s put up with her since high school, her young son keeps her on her toes, and her three cats think they deserve more scratches. Hearing loss is a big part of who she is, from her own Hard of Hearing ears, to the characters she creates.   Signs of Attraction Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iTunes | Google Play | Kobo Do you know what hearing loss sounds like? I do. All my life I’ve tried to be like you. I’ve failed. So I keep it hidden. But on the day my world crashed down around me, Reed was there. He showed me just how loud and vibrant silence can be, even when I struggled to understand. He’s unlike anyone I’ve ever known. His soulful eyes and strong hands pulled me in before I knew what was happening. And as I saw those hands sign, felt them sparking on me, I knew: imperfect could be perfect. Reed makes me feel things I’ve never felt. It’s exciting . . . and terrifying. Because he sees me like no one else has, and I’m afraid of what he’ll find if he looks too closely. The only thing that scares me more than being with him? Letting him go.   Giveaway!   Winner receives a paperback copy of Signs of Attraction. Make a comment to enter.
