Goodreads Book Giveaway

I'm taking a break from expat thoughts to let you know about a contest I'm doing on Goodreads. If you're headed to the beach, pool, or your living room couch this summer, enter to win one of 10 ARCs (Advanced Reader Copy) of my mystery PORTRAIT OF A DEAD GUY. It won't be out until August 28, but if you're lucky you can win a free book before its release!

The contest is May 23 through June 20 and ten lucky winners will get a signed ARC. If you're not familiar with Goodreads, it's a website for readers and writers to connect. You can share reviews, join bookclubs and chat with authors and other readers, but Goodreads is also a great resource for looking up books. Because I'm anal about books, I love to track what I'm reading and what I've read. I can also keep up with new books from authors I like. Feel free to friend me on Goodreads

Here's the Goodreads contest entry link:

Has anyone read some good expat related books that they'd like to share for a summer reading list? I'd love to share a list for a post.

Below is a blurb about PORTRAIT:

PORTRAIT OF A DEAD GUY (Henery Press, Aug 2012)
2012 Finalist in the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense

In Halo, Georgia, folks know Cherry Tucker as big in mouth, small in stature, and able to sketch a portrait faster than buckshot rips from a ten gauge -- but commissions are scarce. So when the well-heeled Branson family wants to memorialize their murdered son in a coffin portrait, Cherry scrambles to win their patronage from her small town rival.

As the clock ticks toward the deadline, Cherry faces more trouble than just a controversial subject. Between ex-boyfriends, her flaky family, an illegal gambling ring, and outwitting a killer on a spree, Cherry finds herself painted into a corner she'll be lucky to survive.


  1. Congratulations on your impending release and best of luck on your Goodreads giveaway!
    I know I've said it before, but I love the cover. And who could resist a heroine named Cherry Tucker? :)

    1. Thanks Jen! I'm partial to the name Cherry Tucker. My editor is so talented. I love the cover, too!
