This is the first-ever contest here at scATX Reads and I could not be more excited about it.
Back in mid-December I reviewed Joanne Renaud’s debut novel, A Question of Time, a time-travel romance that sees our modern-day heroine transported back to the 1980s. I enjoyed the book overall:
Celia does change the timeline. I don’t want to say exactly how or what the result of it is — some secrets should be kept — but it works. Renaud makes it work. She writes Celia as being as confused about the entire thing, which gives the reader permission to simply embrace the unknown about the situation. We, alongside Celia, are invited to wonder at the how and to just be pleased without the way it all turns out.
And how it turns out is sweet and it is heart warming.
This week you have the chance to win a digital copy of A Question of Time as well as this awesome Baggu bag in one of these three colors [NOTE: The winner of the bag is restricted to readers in the continental US due to cost of shipping overseas]:
16″ high / 10″ wide / 5.5″ deep. 40″ adjustable shoulder strap. Snap Closure. Interior pocket. 16oz recycled cotton canvas.
HERE IS HOW YOU WIN THESE THINGS:
This week, there will be four posts related to this contest (one each day, Monday – Thursday). They will all be labeled “WEEK-LONG CONTEST” in the post title. As long as you leave one comment on one of the posts before Thursday night at midnight (central time US), you will be included in the contest. Joanne will randomly pick on one of the names on Friday morning and we will announce it on the blog later that day.
The other three posts this week will be:
- Tuesday: Joanne’s review of Judith O’Brien’s 1995 time travel romance, Ashton’s Bride.
- Wednesday: My interview with Joanne.
- Thursday: My review of the new time travel romance from Gina Lamm, Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl.
