THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU.
STOP EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING AND READ THIS BOOK.
Have I got your attention? Attica Locke, the author of Black Water Rising, has a stellar novel coming out on September 18, The Cutting Season. I can not stress enough how much we love this book. And in case you think that is rhetoric, here's Virginia discussing it at ALA.
It is also getting tremendous support from librarians around the country, AND the folks at Earlyword who want you to join "Team Attica Locke!"
"When we began hearing librarian's enthusiasm for Attica Locke's The Cutting Season, we wanted to spread the word. We asked librarians to join "Team Attica Locke," by creating displays, getting the staff to read and recommend The Cutting Season, and promoting it on their newsletters, blogs and websites. We believe libraries can build word of mouth and make this book the bestseller it deserves to be." - Nora Rawlinson, Earlyword
"If your customers don't know Attica Locke, you're not doing your job of turning people on to great new talent." - Wendy Bartlett, Collection Development Manager, Cuyahoga County Public Library
And, last but not least, the ever-so-cool Dennis Lehane has chosen The Cutting Season as the first in his eponymous new line of books with HarperCollins...boom!
Who wants a copy? The first 10 people who email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what organization Attica is a member of the board of directors for, win!
