Where I spray-paint my thoughts…

Another Book Giveaway!



Update: This contest is now closed, but the author has a great contest on her own blog to give away copies of the book — check it out!

Not one of my books this time, but a great book by a friend of mine.

A Few Kinds of Wrong is Tina Chaulk‘s second novel.  I have a more detailed review of it up on Compulsive Overreader, but for now I’ll just say it’s a fast-paced contemporary novel about Jennifer Collins, a woman who is struggling to come to terms with her father’s death.  You might think Jennifer would be tough as nails since she works as a mechanic in the garage her father owned, but she’s always been a daddy’s girl, and when Daddy’s gone she falls apart, alienating her husband, her mom, and her best friends. The novel will make you laugh in places and cry in a lot more places, and its as skillful a portrayal of someone trapped in a web of grief as I’ve seen in a long time.

I highly recommend you rush right out and buy it (if it’s not in your local store, buy it online), but I will give one lucky blog-reader the chance to win a copy autographed by Tina herself.  Just post in the comments below if you’d like a copy, and I will draw a winner from those who have entered by … let’s give it till Sunday night, shall we?
