Winner announced HERE!
Lately I haven't had a bunch of time to read but I was able to get to One Pink Line a few weeks ago and let me tell you that I zoomed through Dina Silver's self-pubbed book in two very short sittings. If you don't know by now, I'm very much drawn to accidental pregnancy stories, and the 'what happens now' and One Pink Line does not disappoint, especially because it brings the reader two perspectives -- the woman who gets pregnant, and then we get to read the story from the child who is born from that pregnancy, and what happens when she grows up.
It's a great book and it's also wonderful to know that another self-published author has been successful at paving her own way into the publishing world and making a name for herself!
One Pink Line was also a 2012 Winner of the 2012 Eric Hoffer da Vinci Eye Award for outstanding cover art!
About One Pink Line:
Can the love of a lifetime be forever changed by one pink line? Dina Silver’s tender, absorbing novel, One Pink Line, is the warmhearted, wry story of love, loss and family, as seen through the prism of one singular, spirited young couple who find themselves in a predicament that changes the course of their lives, and those closest to them. With heart, humor and compassion, this debut work of women’s fiction is certain to stir anyone who relishes a good laugh, can stand a good cry, and, above all believes in the redemptive power of love.
This unique, contemporary story gives readers a dual perspective. Sydney Shephard, a sweet-tempered, strong-natured college senior is young, in love with an exceptional man, and unexpectedly pregnant. Faced with a child she never planned for, she is forced to relay this news to her neurotic mother, relinquish her youth, and risk losing the love of her life. Then there’s Grace, a daughter, who believed she was a product of this great love, grows to realize her existence is not what she assumed, and is left with profound and puzzling questions about who she really is.
Spanning generations and every imaginable emotion, One Pink Line reveals how two points of view can be dramatically at odds, and perhaps ultimately reconciled. Simultaneously deeply felt and lighthearted, One Pink Line deftly mines how the choices we make are able to alter so many lives, and how doing the right thing and living honestly can bring unexpected, hard-won happiness. It’s a must-read for anyone who relishes a great love story, absorbing characters, and plenty of laughs along the way.
To win a copy of One Pink Line, share if you've ever been the recipient of a pink line and have an interesting story about it, or if you've ever had to help a friend who has discovered a pink line on a pregnancy test. OR any other pregnancy related story -- I've kept all of my pregnancy sticks, and will never throw them out. Have any of you done the same -- kept a pregnancy test stick? I've also had two people MAIL me pregnancy sticks to announce their pregnancies to me! Hahah! I know there are some infertility issues from some of you and I'm sorry if this is a difficult subject for you. I don't mean to bring up a sad subject, but this book is about pregnancy, and I couldn't think of a more relevant question. If you'd still like to enter for the book, please feel free to leave a comment stating that you'd like to enter but would like to not answer the question. XO to you all.
Also, if you're in Chicago and would like to meet Dina and a bunch of other amazing indie book authors, she'll be at this event on September 29, noon to 4 p.m. I'm jealous!!
Thank you for sticking around, and I hope to have a couple more books for you later this week!
