BELIEVE IT OR NOT, It's Tawna Fenske's Release Week!

So, I woke up today without a clue about what to write for a blog post (I blame a marathon of Supernatural, capped off by an episode of The Walking Dead), and then I remembered this is the week Tawna Fenske's Believe it or Not comes out!!

(If you don't know Tawna, you can read more about her at website, here, or her fantastically funny blog, here.)

Once again, Tawna saves my ass. She's one of my crit partners, so believe it or not (the opportunities for plays on the title abound!) she's used to that.

Here's the cover:


If that's not enough incentive for you to run out and buy the book (and I can't imagine it wouldn't be), let me just add that it's an amazing read. It's funny (duh) and hot (double-duh), and guaranteed to make you feel good.

Here's the book description I shamelessly lifted from a book-selling site (What? They said it so well.):

Do you believe in...accounting?
Numbers never lie, so Violet McGinn found safe haven in the most boring profession she could find. Until her renowned psychic mother lands in the hospital and Violet has to run her business. Now you can have your taxes filed and your aura read, in one convenient location.

Do you believe in...music?
Drew Watson is the jaded owner of the local hot spot next door, and doesn't need a single thing except a good crowd to dance to what he's spinning on Saturday night.

Do you believe in...love?
The only thing Violet and Drew seem to have in common is that neither believes in that psychic hoo—hah. Except Drew seems to play exactly the right song at exactly the right time. And truth be told, it makes Violet's heart dance just a little ... 

Doesn't that sound fabulous? Believe it or not (heh), it is!

But you don't have to take my word for it--I love this book so much I want to share a copy of it with some lucky commenter. Personally. As in, if you leave a comment telling me you'd like to be sucked in by Tawna the way I was, and you win, I will buy you a copy and have it sent directly to your home. 

Trust me. You want to do this. Comment! Enter! Win a fabulous book! 

Simple, huh? 

And if you don't win, you can always order your own copy from Amazon or B&N -- a totally worthwhile investment in your mental well-being. I mean, laughter is the best medicine, right?

Now, pardon me while sit over here and envy Tawna's week-long release. *sighs* Damn. That woman really knows how to live her life. ;)

P.S. Um, let's have the contest close at 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time tomorrow (Tuesday, Mar 6 -- the official release day of Believe it or Not). No point in dragging out the suspense, right?

Now, have at it!

I love Tawna's writing! Can't wait to read this new book. Don't pick me, I'd rather see the book go to someone who hasn't discovered her yet!

Kimberly Sabatini said...

I love Tawna and I'm waiting for my copy to come in the mail--but if I win, I'll give it to my mom!!!!

Jessica Lemmon said...

Ha! We also watched Supernatural and Walking Dead!!! You are so on par with my TV habits. :D and you should pick me for the book. I'm too busy catching up with Supernatural (we're only on episode 15!) to go to the book store. ;)

wow, a week-long release? How exhausting! That kind of makes my thighs ache.

Karla Nellenbach said...

this was a great book (i already read it. isn't everyone jealous of me?) so, im not entering, but if anyone is sitting on the fence on buying Tawna's book (you really shouldn't be. i mean, it's THAT good), and need a little more incentive to get it, i raved about it over on my blog a little minute ago review here: http://karlanellenbach-lastword.blogspot.com/2012/02/arc-review-believe-it-or-not.html)

This sounds like a great book! I love Tawna's blog -- she was one of the first I found when I first ventured into this wide world of bloggers :)

Having loved Tawna's first book, Making Waves, I ordered Believe It Or Not already. So don't put me in the contest. But do count me as a Tawna Fenske fangirl!

How incredibly awesome! Go, Tawna!
Love that line about having your taxes filed and your aura read in one convenient location! ;)

I'm sure I would love this book as her fab wit always comes through on her blog. Congrats, Tawna! I bet you two make great crit partners.

Hi Linda G! I always see us commenting on the same blogs so I thought I needed to stop on by. :-) Tawna's book sounds great! Heading over to her blog now...

Carol Kilgore said...

What a great friend you are - especially for an author with a great book. I hope it's available on Kindle.

Sarah Pearson said...

Every entry on Tawna's blog makes me laugh out loud. This is definitely on my to-buy list. I'm in England, so if you're not international, don't enter me :-)
