Signed book giveaway

April 13, 2009

I had the pleasure of meeting the very lovely Kate Jacobs, bestselling author of The Friday Night Knitting Club, Knit Two and Comfort Food at my local bookstore last week.

Kate spoke to the audience, answered questions about being a writer and read an excerpt from her novel Comfort Food, which is now out in paperback. I wrote a review of Comfort Food almost a year ago and really enjoyed the book and was excited to be able to meet her. If you are a fan of Kate Jacobs, you’ll be happy to hear that Kate is in the process of writing two new books, one of which will be about a mother/daughter relationship.

    OH BOY!! I would love to enter this contest.

    I have read so many wonderful reviews of this book around the blogosphere lately that I just had to try to reserve a copy of this book at the library in the hopes of having it by this weekend for the Read-a-Thon.

    BTW, I love the photo of you two!
