SURRENDER by Elana Johnson. If you haven't read the first novel, POSSESSION, quick click this link and get it! She also has a novella out (Regret) that you won't want to miss either. And if you don't know Elana, she is one of the most generous, sweet people I've ever met.
During Elana's tour she's giving out 3 B&N gift cards (told you she was sweet!). For my part in the blogfest I'm blogging about a time when I didn't surrender.
On Christmas day of 2005 my horse kicked me in the face, shattering my orbital socket and literally rearranging my face. When the doctors put me back together I decided right then and there that I would never be vain again. I was happy just to be alive and look normal. It was one of the worst experiences of my life and I could have let it beat me, but I didn't. I had put my writing aside, thinking I'd get to it when I retired. That day made me realize life was too short for such thinking and I began writing again as soon as I could see out of both eyes. Since then I haven't let anything get in the way of my dreams of bringing my books to the world.
Is there a time in your life when you didn't surrender? I'd love to hear about it. And don't forget to check on Elana's blogfest to read more stories, buy her novels, and enter the giveaway. To get started click here.
In honor of Elana's release party there is no stop along the Puca tour today, but you can still enter by scrolling down to yesterday's post and filling out the rafflecopter. Also, my good friend Natalie is giving away some fantastic books (The Secret Of Spruce Knoll included) over on Literary Rambles.
