Teaser Tuesday & GIVEAWAY Reminder: Cleans Up Nicely by Linda Dahl

By Wednesday, all she can think about is the paycheck on Friday night. She gives up being "good," bringing a bottle of rum and a can of Coke in a bag along with her sandwiches.
-- Cleans Up Nicely by Linda Dahl

THE BOOK: "When twenty-something artist Erica Mason moves from laidback Mexico to Manhattan in the mid-1970s, she finds a hard-edged, decadent, and evolving art scene. Her life there leads her to a self-destructive string of affairs with men, alcohol, and drugs – but also, ultimately, to the self-respect that has long eluded her."

The mid-70s New York scene is fascinating, even though watching the heroine on her train wreck is gut-wrenching.  But I know things are going to work out -- I read the blurb above!

THE GIVEAWAY:  I have TWO copies of the finished paperback edition of Cleans Up Nicely to give away to TWO lucky book bloggers. Go to the GIVEAWAY PAGE for details and to sign up.


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event. 

Mailbox Monday

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday this holiday weekend! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).

Kathy at Bermuda Onion stepped in to host in August -- thanks, Kathy!

I got two books last week, both Lee Child Jack Reacher books.  I was pleased as punch to get a copy of his brand new one from the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program.  Then I figured out from my mom (another Reacher Creature) that I had missed one. So I ordered that one immediately.

Never Go Back, the brand new one.


A Wanted Man, which comes before Never Go Back.  This one was published after The Affair, but chronologically comes right after Worth Dying ForThe Affair goes back to Reacher's military days.
