I'm a big winner

No, not a winner at the casinos. In our house, at least this weekend, that was Gina. She cleaned up at the casinos. Thank you, Oklahoma. If you follow me on Facebook you already know this, but she put $5 into a slot machine on Friday night and quickly turned it into $100. She had similar luck on Saturday at another casino. Overall she was up about $150 for the weekend. Me, not so much. I lost and lost and lost. But I had fun, and that's what was important.

So licking my wounds, at least a little bit, last night, I checked my email and saw this message.

Congratulations Jarrett!

You've won an autographed copy of Travis Thrasher's Solitary. If you enjoy the book please leave a review on Amazon to help spread the word. Your copy should arrive in the next few weeks. Thanks for visiting!

No,, thank you.

I'll be honest, I don't know much about Travis Thrasher. I've checked his web site and read an interview with him at FictionAddict. I know he's a Christian author.

The books sounded good, though, and that's why I entered the contest for the free book. Here's a description.

When Chris Buckley moves to Solitary, North Carolina, he faces the reality of his parents’ divorce, a school full of nameless faces—and Jocelyn Evans. Jocelyn is beautiful and mysterious enough to leave Chris speechless. But the more Jocelyn resists him, the more the two are drawn together.

Chris soon learns that Jocelyn has secrets as deep as the town itself. Secrets more terrifying than the bullies he faces in the locker room or his mother’s unexplained nightmares. He slowly begins to understand the horrific answers. The question is whether he can save Jocelyn in time.

This first book in the Solitary Tales series will take you from the cold halls of high school to the dark rooms of an abandoned cabin—and remind you what it means to believe in what you cannot see.
