A Father's Day Contest and An Announcement

Today's weather for St. Peters, MO: Partly cloudy, high 71 degrees. Great weather for Michael's baseball game tonight. Go Bulldogs!

One of my favorite sites about books and authors is Bookreporter.com, not only because I review books for Bookreporter, Kidsreads and Teenreads, but also because they are so generous towards their readers and reviewers. Seems like Carol Fitzgerald, Founder and President of Bookreporter, is always hosting a contest to give away books and other gifts to readers.

One of the featured contests this month is their Father's Day Contest. From not until June 12th readers will have the chance to win a Father’s Day Tote Bag Cooler, which is stocked with handy and fun items for dad as well as one copy of their six featured book titles. Click on the photo or link for contest information and titles of their featured books, which sound like great reads! You'll also need to name your favorite book that your dad read to you. What an intriguing question and a special way to remember your dad! But act fast because the contest ends June 12! Good luck!

Now for an announcement, which is actually a reminder and a request. Tomorrow on Donna's Book Pub I will interview acclaimed Southern author Mindy Friddle, as part of the WOW! Author's Blog Tour. Friddle is author of SECRET KEEPERS and THE GUARDIAN ANGEL. Her interview will touch on the differences between the two books, some thoughts on the writing process, a discussion of writers who have influenced her, and much more. Hope you can join us here tomorrow, where you can read the interview and post questions or comments for Mindy.
