Book giveaway and Facebook Party
Welcome to Read Between the Lines, everyone! Hopefully, you're here because you heard about my Facebook launch party for At What Cost. You can purchase it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Astraea Press. Or, you can try to win it!
Here's what you do to win:
First of all, the story follows Maggie Reynolds, who, at 16, finds herself with an unwanted pregnancy. This event will be ingrained in her memory and will define her high school career. So, in order to keep with the theme, I thought we'd rehash some high school memories by way of the comments below. No, they don't have to be negative, though if you feel the need, go ahead. You can write about your most embarrassing high school moment or just tell me about your favorite memory from high school. At the end of the day, I'll sift through the comments and pick one to win a free copy of At What Cost. It'll be a PDF, unless the winner request another format.
Let's see, I guess I have to go first. There are so many memories I have to choose from. I loved high school. I had great times on the swimming and track teams, performed with wonderful casts in both musical, and drama club and had influential teachers such as Mr. Johnson (Aka. Coach), Mrs. Edwards, Mr. Schmitt, Miss Benson, Mr. Carlson, Mrs. Schmidt, and Mr. McFarland. But the moment that's sticking out in my memory at this very moment was during my senior musical. I was Reno Sweeny in Anything Goes. We were to the song "Blow, Gabriel, Blow" and I forgot the words. I can remember trying to go to the chorus when I needed to sing the verse. I remember looking at my feet and pushing my hair behind my ears with both hands as I stumbled through my memory for the words. My friend, Alicia Hooven, tried to sing them to me, but I was too far away to hear her. Finally, I figured out where I was and went on, but that moment of terror will live in my brain forever. It was my SENIOR musical. I was the lead. This was my moment and I totally screwed it up.
So, what's it for you? Leave your memories in the comments. And remember, I'll pick one at the end of the day to win, so be sure to check back or leave your email addresses so I can contact you. Oh, and one more thing. I'm also giving away another copy over at my personal blog: www.therabidwriter.blogspot.com, so you have two chances to win.
NOTE: I must have at least 12 comments to be able to give away a book, so tell your friends!
