Friday Freebie: The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan, Someone Else's Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson, and The Death of Bees by Lisa O'Donnell
Congratulations to LuAnn Ritsema, winner of last week’s Friday Freebie: A Life of Barbara Stanwyck: Steel True, 1907-1940 by Victoria Wilson.
This week’s book giveaway is a triple-delight package of The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan, Someone Else's Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson, and The Death of Bees by Lisa O’Donnell. I can’t think of a better holiday gift to put under a Christmas tree (yours or someone else’s) than these three books! (Note: The Valley of Amazement and Someone Else's Love Story are hardbacks; The Death of Bees is a trade paperback.) Here’s more about the books via the publishers’ synopses:
If you’d like a chance at winning all three of the books--The Valley of Amazement, Someone Else's Love Story, and The Death of Bees--simply email your name and mailing address to
Put FRIDAY FREEBIE in the e-mail subject line. One entry per person, please. Despite its name, the Friday Freebie runs all week long and remains open to entries until midnight on Dec. 5, at which time I’ll draw the winning name. I’ll announce the lucky reader on Dec. 6. If you’d like to join the mailing list for the once-a-week newsletter, simply add the words “Sign me up for the newsletter” in the body of your email. Your email address and other personal information will never be sold or given to a third party (except in those instances where the publisher requires a mailing address for sending Friday Freebie winners copies of the book).
Want to double your odds of winning? Get an extra entry in the contest by posting a link to this webpage on your blog, your Facebook wall or by tweeting it on Twitter. Once you’ve done any of those things, send me an additional e-mail saying “I’ve shared” and I’ll put your name in the hat twice.
