Spring Cleaning Giveaway Hop

The Spring Cleaning Giveaway Hop is sponsored by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer. This hop is to help us spring clean our bookshelves, which of course means some of you will be adding to your bookshelves, but that's good news for you!

We're supposed to give away one of the following:

  • A book that we've read but will never read again.
  • A book that we started but just couldn't get through.
  • Or a review copy we've accepted but have never read.

Actually, I'm giving away a book I received for free in my registration bag at a writers conference. I'm sure it's a perfectly good book, but well, it's a contemporary novel and truth to tell, I don't really enjoy contemporary novels, so I haven't felt much interest in reading it. (I read to escape the contemporary world for awhile, in case you're wondering about my reading preferences.) So I decided this was a good opportunity to pass it on to someone who might enjoy it.

The name of the book is Recovering Charles, by Jason F. Wright. Here's the back cover blurb:

Luke Millward is a man who does not know he is lost. His career in Manhattan is going well; he has the love of close friends; and a future that he looks forward to every day.

Only when the past reveals its twisted smile in a phone call and the disconnected voice asks him to come find his estranged father in post-Katrina New Orleans is Luke compelled to find out what kind of man he truly is; and who the man is that his father has become.

If you'd like a chance to win Recovering Charles, please leave a comment with your email address. If I can't contact you, I can't let you know if you win. Deadline for entries is March 25, midnight PST. USA entries only.
