Brand New Book Contests

Hello All. What could be better than a three day weekend....How about a chance to win books! Thanks to Miriam with Hachette I am giving away 5 copies of each book. This means there will be 10 winners in all.

Open to US and Canada Only. No PO BOXES. Contest will end September 18th. Winners will be posted and will have to email me their info to claim prize. Please put the title of the book you have won in the subject line. Thank you

All you have to do to win is leave a comment with the title of which book(s) you want to win.

Shot in the head by an unknown assailant, San Francisco private eye Sharon McCone finds herself trapped by locked-in syndrome: almost total paralysis but an alert, conscious mind. Since the late-night attack occurred at her agency's offices, the natural conclusion was that it was connected to one of the firm's cases. As Sharon lies in her hospital bed, furiously trying to break out of her body's prison and discover her attacker's identity, all the members of her agency fan out to find the reason why she was assaulted.

Set in New Orleans in the years after the Civil War, A Separate Country is based on the incredible life of John Bell Hood, arguably one of the most controversial generals of the Confederate Army--and one of its most tragic figures. Robert E. Lee promoted him to major general after the Battle of Antietam. But the Civil War would mark him forever. At Gettysburg, he lost the use of his left arm. At the Battle of Chickamauga, his right leg was amputated. Starting fresh after the war, he married Anna Marie Hennen and fathered 11 children with her, including three sets of twins.
