Weekend: Inspirations/Book Giveaway

Posted by on April 7, 2012


I was so excited to read THE PROFESSIONALS that I pre-ordered it from Amazon in June. As the release date approached (March 29) I checked on Amazon and they told me I would receive it in the mail April 4th. I was not happy. So, the morning of March 29th, I was at my nearby big box bookstore when it opened, asking for a copy of the book. The clerk told me they wouldn’t receive their copies until April 4th. Drat!!

I slunk back home. When I arrived, I saw a small package on the front porch. It was from Putnam Books. It was an ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) of THE PROFESSIONALS. Apparently, I had won a copy of the book. Happy, happy, joy, joy. I could not believe my luck.

I ripped through it and then around April 3rd or so (yeah, so what it was a day early) got my pre-ordered Amazon copy in the mail. So, then I had two copies of THE PROFESSIONALS. In the spirit of my good luck in receiving the book on the day I so badly wanted it, I’ve decided to offer up the second book in a giveway. All you have to do is comment between now and Sunday, April 15th on this post. (Hopefully it will take away the sting of tax day for the winner.) I will use the random number generator to pick a winner from those who comment. Good luck.


And speaking or random, now some random inspirations and/or things that make me happy:
