A Giveaway is Worth 50,000 Words

If you couldn't tell from the title, this isn't a book review.

This is a GIVEAWAY!

For those of you who don't know, I not only review books, but I write them. My first book, A Time to Die, is the start of a dystopian trilogy and comes out in September. You can read a little about it on my website. There will also be a cover reveal soon!

But enough about that. Let's get to the good stuff: how do you win a free book?

Last week, I broke the 50k word count mark on my second book. I know this doesn't mean much because book one isn't even out yet (September! September, people!) But everyone likes an excuse to celebrate. I'm celebrating with a giveaway.

I chose three books that influenced my writing in some way. The winner of the giveaway will get to choose which of the three books he or she would like. Here's a little bit about each one:

Love Does, by Bob Goff: this is a non-fiction book that inspired me to pursue life actively. My husband and I started doing the things we always said we'd like to do someday. Active living and active thinking for God is a main theme in my books.

Cinder, by Marissa Meyer: a dystopian, sci-fi, fairytale retelling. It's absolutely fantastic and one of my favorites. It showed me that, if you're a good writer, you can even take a cliche storyline and make it uniquely astounding. (You can read my book review on Cinder here.)

Plot vs. Character by Jeff Gerke: One of my most invaluable writing help books! This digs into all aspects of the book and reaches the plot-first and character-first writers. Whatever your weakness is, this book will help.

Everyone is welcome to enter. All fellow authors who I do or don't know. Friends, family, non-writers, readers, you name it. if you want one of the books then go for it! There will be one winner and that person will be notified via e-mail. Then they will choose which book they'd like me to send!

Which of these three books interests you the most?
