This is a sticky note. It will stay at the top of my blog until next Tuesday. The new posts are below... Jan Shinpaugh lives here in my little town. She comes into the library most Mondays and returns about a dozen mysteries and then checks out a dozen more. This is here first book. I will admit that I have not read it yet. I am planning on buying two copies this week.
One for me.
And one for you. Yes, I am looking right at YOU. I have decided what to do for my big blogiversary giveaway. And yes, I am late. That is one of the traditional ways that I celebrate.
I am going to give away Jan's book. I may even get her to sign it, if that is what the winner wants.
Here is the synopsis from Amazon:
Join Jan and her family as they head to the top of Tennessee’s Cumberland
Plateau for the annual homecoming at the church and cemetery, and try to
discover if Cousin Theodore really does have God locked in his moonshine closet.
Get in line as Cousin Theodore, now a born-again Christian, dispels advice and
little jars of blessed moonshine to visitors who’ve come to see God. And help
the family solve the mystery behind the disappearing items in Cousin Sam and
Cousin Joe’s country store. Join in the humor and fun as Jan and the family
attend the gospel singing and foot-washing ceremony. And generally, have an
all-around good time.
So as you can see, Jan reads mysteries but writes comedies. She told me she is working on two more books. In one of them a woman believes that her bull is a reincarnation of Elvis.
I know, it makes me giggle, too. These books are set in my area, and I'm afraid that makes it even funnier to me. I like to laugh at the locals.
Stop it, I am not a local, I have only lived here for 11 1/2 years. That is hardly enough time to have even become fluent in the local vernacular. Which I am not fluent in. Because I have to learn teen vernacular, also. Learning two languages at once is too much!
So go ahead and comment and tell me about your favorite books. I am dying to read them. Really.
And if you mention this giveaway on your blog, of course you get entered twice!
C'mon, even if you are not a reader, I bet you know someone that is, and Jan's book would make an excellent gift. Remember, I am going to beg her to write a little something inside for the recipient. So you could have it inscribed to Great Aunt Myrtle or Cousin Ezekiel.
Oh, People outside of Tennessee don't have relatives with names like those?
You have until Tuesday October 21 at 9:00 pm central time.
And then Wednesday is Adrian's birthday, so maybe I will have to give away something for that.
Like a chicken!
Oooohhhh, I almost forgot. If you leave a comment and you click up there on the right corner of my blog and become a "follower" that will buy you another entry. If you already are a follower I will enter you a second time if you leave a comment.
Did that make any sense at all?
