One True Valentine Giveaway

February 9, 2009

041As I mentioned in my last post, I was eagerly anticipating Laura Fitzgerald’s newest book One True Theory of Love. I’ve been in contact via e-mail with Laura over the last two years ever since I asked her to grant me (at the time a newish book blogger) an author interview, which you can read here. Not only did she provide me an interview, but has followed along with my blog ever since. She also e-mailed me privately about my battle with cancer and has been a great support for me. When I opened up my copy of her newest book, imagine my surprise when in the acknowledgement section (I always read the acknowledgements – I know, geeky) I saw my own name! I almost fell off my chair! Never in my wildest dreams did I actually think that I would be acknowledged by an author in a published work. Thanks so much Laura for making my day!

So, would you like to win a copy of Laura’s new book? Below is the description of the book from the back cover:

Meg Clark believes in the “hokey pokey” theory of life, which demands that you put your whole self in; she even teaches it to her kindergarten students. But after the love of her life betrays her, and her father takes a flying leap off the pedestal she set him on, Meg has a hard time putting this theory into practice. What’s the point of opening yourself up if your heart comes back a little more broken each time?

Now only one man receives Meg’s full devotion: her nine year old son, Henry. She’s happy with her single-mom life. She and Henry are taking on the world in their own lively way, and it’s enough. Still, sometimes love finds you, whether you’re ready or not.

Love comes to Meg in form of Ahmed Bourhani, an exotically handsome Iranian-American who befriends her and Henry over a game of chess in a coffee shop. Meg knows that second changes require a leap of faith, and the result is more often a complicated mixed bag than a neatly packaged happily-ever-after. Sometimes in order to heal you have to hurt, but most of all you have to live your life and put your whole self in…

If you are interested in winning a copy of One True Theory of Love, along with a little box of Sweethearts candies, please leave a comment with your e-mail address on this post. To double your chances of winning, post about my giveaway on your blog and link back here. I will announce the winner a couple days after Valentine’s Day – next Monday, February 16th. Good luck!
