Giveaway, Author Events, AND 19 Books for Summer

1.  I've got a great hardcover book for a giveaway.  It's the mother's promise by Sally Hepworth.  And even though I read the book, it's in great shape and looks like new.  Most importantly, it 's REALLY good (my review went live on May 17).  All you have to do is comment with one word.  It could be "gimme" or "book" or "wantit" or "mine," etc.  I will ask my wife pull a winner next Friday, the 9th.  (Thanks to Melissa of chicklitcentral.com fame for sending it to me.)

2.  From June 4-July 21, Cara Black will be appearing throughout the Bay Area with book 17 in the Aimee Leduc series, Murder in St. Germain. Check her website for all of the bookstore stops:  carablack.com.

3.  On July 18, Daniel Silva will be coming to the JCC in Palo Alto to promote his latest Gabriel Allon novel, House of Spies.  The event starts at 8:00.  You would be wise to go on their website and reserve a spot. paloaltojcc.org
