Poughkeepsie Giveaway!!!

Hello friends,

Well, yesterday I promised you all a special treat if you came back, and I am living up to that promise. A good friend of mine, and fellow author - Debra Anastasia - has a new novel out and she has been kind enough to give me 2 copies to give away!! That's right, two of you will get a free ebook of her novel, Poughkeepsie.

I'm so excited about this. I have actually read an earlier version of this novel (lucky me) and I can tell you that I was hanging on the edge of my seat and desperate to keep turning pages to see what was going to happen. It is a beautiful love story. Poughkeepsie not only shows romantic love, but also the deep, unmoving love of brothers. You won't be able to put it down once you start reading (I couldn't) and you may even shed a few tears (I did).

So, a HUGE thanks to Debra for providing these copies for you win. You're probably wondering what the book is about and how you can win a free copy. Well, details are below and remember, if you're not a winner, that doesn't mean that you have to go without!! Poughkeepsie is for sale now and all the information you need on how to get your own copy can be found below.

Read it. Enjoy it. Love it. Just like me!


There are 2 eCopies of Poughkeepsie to give away on the blog today. To enter, please leave a comment and a valid email address.

He counts her smiles every day and night at the train station. And morning and evening, the beautiful commuter acknowledges him—just like she does everyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others . . . he’s homeless. Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day.

Each day, Livia McHugh smiles politely and acknowledges her fellow commuters as she waits for the train to the city. She dismisses this kindness as nothing special, just like her. She’s the same as a million other girls—certainly no one to be cherished. But special or not, she smiles every day, never imagining that someone would rely on the simple gesture as if it were air to breathe.

When the moment comes that Livia must do more than smile, without hesitation she steps into the fray to defend the homeless man. And she's surprised to discover an inexplicable connection with her new friend. After danger subsides, their smiles become conversation. Their words usher in a friendship, which awakens something in each of them. But it’s not long before their bond must prove its strength. Entanglements from the past challenge both their love and their lives.

Blake’s heart beats for Livia’s, even if her hands have to keep its rhythm. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love never fails. Love never fails, right?

In an interwoven tale of unlikely loves and relationships forged by fire, Debra Anastasia takes readers into the darkest corners of human existence, only to show them the radiant power of pure adoration and true sacrifice. Complicated families and confused souls find their way to light in this novel, which manages to be racy, profane, funny, and reverent all at once.
