More Clues!

I’m surprised there were no guesses after my first set of clues. I guess I made them too hard. Let’s try again. Remember, this is for a giveaway I’m doing in August for a signed copy of a new release book.

Clue #4. The author has sold the movie rights to one series to Disney. (Yay! I hope?)

Clue #5. The author attended my alma mater and studied the same major as me. Weird, right?

Clue #6. She will be appearing at SDCC this year.

Final Clue:

33385408 (3)

The previous three clues are listed below. Again, I will not confirm or deny your guesses, but I will make the announcement after next week when I go to the signing. I’m so excited! I haven’t been feeling great, so here’s hoping that I am totally recovered by then, because I totally don’t want to miss this book launch. It’s practically next door (not really, but kinda!) and I really want to be there! So come on and guess this time!

Giveaway Sneak Peak

I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I’m planning to give away a SIGNED COPY
of a new release here on my blog next month. I will be going to the release party to get the book and get it signed by the author. But first, I thought I’d do a little teaser about the book to keep you guessing.

Clue #1: The Genre is Fantasy/Folk Tale.

Clue #2: The author is from Utah.

Clue #3: The author has already written several exciting books.

Final Clue:
33385408 (2)

If you have guessed the book (or the author), you can say so in the comments, but I will neither confirm nor deny anything until it gets a little closer to the signing. In other words, guess away!

New Giveaway!

I’ve decided to do a signed book for my next giveaway and I’m sure you’ll be thrilled when you here more about what I’ve chosen. Local author Charlie N. Holmberg is doing a book release party at the American Fork Library to celebrate her new book, The Fifth Doll. There will be a reading, a signing, giveaways, Matryoshka displays, and a little bird tells me crafts for the kiddos.

About The book

Matrona lives in an isolated village, where her life is centered on pleasing her parents. She’s diligent in her chores and has agreed to marry a man of their choosing. But a visit to Slava, the local tradesman, threatens to upend her entire life.

Entering his empty house, Matrona discovers a strange collection of painted nesting dolls—one for every villager. Fascinated, she can’t resist the urge to open the doll with her father’s face. But when her father begins acting strangely, she realizes Slava’s dolls are much more than they seem.

When he learns what she’s done, Slava seizes the opportunity to give Matrona stewardship over the dolls—whether she wants it or not. Forced to open one of her own dolls every three days, she falls deeper into the grim power of Slava’s creations. But nothing can prepare her for the profound secret hiding inside the fifth doll.

About the author

Charlie is a local Utah author, Author of The Paper Magician series; Followed by Frost; and Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet. Amazon and Wall Street Journal bestseller. I think – but I’m not certain – that all her books are available from Kindle Unlimited. They are each creative and original. And she’s a sweetheart, going to all the writer’s events. Really warm and friendly.

Anyhow, the event is

Tuesday, July 25 at 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
American Fork Public Library
I will be there AND get a signed copy of her book to Giveaway. As before, you’ll have to follow my blog if you want to win.
