Last Day for a Chance to Win A FREE Book!

Because I’m a person who needs constant reminders for all sorts of things, I’m just going to assume that the rest of the world needs them, too. And so, my Public Service Announcement is a reminder that one very random person who supports my blog and/or sporadic newsletter will be selected to win a FREE paperback book! I will contact the winner via email/message at the end of this week and publicly announce the winner on my July 2nd post. More info below (as posted on June 13, 2019):

To get you into the summer reading spirit, and to thank the nearly 1,200 of you for your support – it means so much! – I’m giving everyone who supports my blog and my mailing list a chance to win an awesome FREE book!

As you likely know by now, my latest novella involves a love triangle. I was attracted to the messiness of it all, and as a writer, I wanted to explore the trope in all its ABC triangular glory. Luck of the Irish will be released on August 8, 2019, but for those of you who are looking to enjoy some geometrical hot mess romance right now, I’m giving away a FREE copy of a book that really had me turning the pages (well, mine’s a digital copy, but yours could be this sweet paperback version, wrapped in delicious cellophane). Yes, I enjoyed it so much, I bought it twice.

want-a-free-book-join-my-newsletter-

Meant To Be Broken by Brandy Woods Snow includes one heck of a love triangle that’s sort of like a bouncy ball, but that’s not the only interesting thing that happens. Not by a long shot. This sucker is a roller coaster that pretty much doesn’t slow down until the last page. Check out this trailer about the book on YouTube:

So, to show my love to all of you, I’ll randomly select one name to whom I’ll send a complimentary copy of this book. Why? Well, because I appreciate you, I’m a fan of this book and the author, and I’m sure it’s cool to see me plugging someone else’s awesome work other than my own for a change, haha.

If you’re interested in getting my attention, just leave a comment below or mention #AtinaReads on Twitter @Atina_Atwood. I’ll announce the winner on my Tuesday post on July 2, 2019. Be sure that you’re active on my mailing list (my sort of every other month newsletter) or following my blog to be eligible. Good luck, and THANK YOU!

Sending Love and Light to all of you.
