Two Years, No Rain
Winner Announced Here: Becki***
Well lookie here folks, it’s ANOTHER TWO-FER! BUT YOU HAVE TO READ THIS!! (some of you didn’t read the last post all the way through … Naughty-Naughty. : ) Since you’re tired of telling me: PICK ME, PICK ME, and since this is a TWO-FER giveaway, in the comment section, just tell me TWO THINGS you like together: like pizza and French fries, or movies and popcorn. It can be anything: vanilla and chocolate, whatever. I don’t care. I like to read something other than PICK ME PICK ME! Thanks!
Today’s author is Shawn Klomparens and both of his books are being offered here! And the only MaNiC-author related story I have to share here is that I don’t know him (kinda wish I did – he is very good looking from his author photo), but I have been in Jackson, Wyoming, and that’s where he lives. So. There’s that.
I’m in the middle of reading his debut, Jessica Z, and let me tell you, it’s intriguing, fast-paced, and one that I can’t wait to find the moments to slip away so that I can get back into the world of Jessica. Already I find that my heart is racing as I dive into the pages.
The story is told post 9-11 in a world where danger lurks and suicide bombers are prevalent, and Jessica is trying to cope the best she can in a world she tries to make safe for herself by working a mundane job and dating her neighbor upstairs (where certain rules apply). When she meets an intriguing man who’s going to take her out of her safety net … well, that’s where I am now. So it’s a very exciting book and let me tell you, I’m in for the ride!
Shawn’s other book is Two Years No Rain, and I can’t wait to get to this one either (so many books, so little time!). Here’s the blurb:
In San Diego County, it hasn't rained in 580 days. But for weatherman Andy Dunne, everything else is changing fast...Only a few weeks ago, he was a newly divorced, slightly overweight meteorologist for an obscure satellite radio station, hiding his secret love for a colleague, the beautiful--and very much married--Hillary Hsing. But nearly overnight, Andy has landed a new gig, flying a magic carpet in a bizarre live-action children's TV show. So what is affable, basically decent Andy Dunne going to do now that he can do practically anything he wants? With a parade of hot moms begging for his autograph and a family that needs his help more than ever, Andy has a lot of choices. First, though, there's this thing with Hillary, their heated text messages, a long-awaited forecast for rain - and a few other surprises he never saw coming…
Catherine McKenzie of The Author Effect introduced me to these great books, and I’m not making this mandatory, but if you’d be so kind to head over there, I promise you there will be LOTS more chances for you to find out about even MORE fabulous books – she is ALWAYS sharing great new authors and books with fans AND GIVING THEM AWAY. I feel so fortunate to have found her and found out about her books.
(SIDENOTE, the winner of her books has not come forward, and I have not seen her back here to enter again, so there still may be a chance to win SPIN and ARRANGED at a later date during this giveaway and HER BOOKS ROCK!)
Please leave a comment, and all those who do will qualify to win both of Shawn's books! I’ll draw the winner in a couple of days and I will post the winner’s name at the TOP of this post, in the highlighted area.
Come back and read about each book every day in March. Choose the books you'd like to win. Enter for any or ALL the books.
