Happy 2009 and Happy Birthday to Elvis! :) Two weeks after Christmas, Elvis Presley and I celebrate our birthdays. I absolutely love birthdays, but sharing my birthday with the King of Rock and Roll kind of sucks. When I was a little girl, I had to endure countless hours of Elvis movies, music, and dedications. Sorry, Elvis, I do like your song "Can't Help Falling in Love" even though I prefer the U2 version and a few late sixties tunes, but your movies.. Not so much... :)
To celebrate the first month of the year, I have some amazing books to giveaway, including this month's South Jersey Mom Magazine's Chick Lit Pick and a brand new hot off the press special autographed copy.
Lauren Barnholdt is one of my absolute fave authors, so I have to part with and giveaway one of her books to share the love. Her first book, Reality Chick, hooked me, like she always does, from page one and I nonstop read the entire book during one summer day. This one is a fun, can't miss novel.
January's South Jersey Mom Magazine's Chick Lit Pick is Jennifer Lee Carrell's international bestseller, Interred With Their Bones which is an action packed literary adventure. Filled with detailed description and edge of your seat prose, this book will sure to please reader's looking for an intellectual escape.
Last, but certainly not least, my fellow author and friend, Jessica Burkhart debuts her first book from the Canterwood Crest Series, Take the Reins, this month. I cannot wait to get my hands on this series. I love reading books by authors who show some serious sparkle for their subject. And Jessica is an equestrian fanatic. She's giving away one signed copy of Take the Reins and a postcard.
To enter to win Reality Chick, Interred With Their Bones, and a signed copy of Take the Reins, this month's question is: Who shares your birthday? If you're not sure who celebrates your big day with you, click here.
Besides Elvis, David Bowie shares my birthday. Too bad I can't sing. But, the interesting birthday sharer in the family is my hubby who celebrates with Adolf Hitler. Yikes. :)
