Teaser Tuesday & GIVEAWAY Reminder: Drive by Raymond Ahrens

The ocean lurked below him. He floored it, his tires screeching as the Impala fishtailed it dangerously close to the cliff.

-- Drive by Raymond Ahrens.

THE BOOK: "Willy Easelman, 86, born in Brooklyn and a perennial finalist in the American Dreams Sweepstakes, is committed to the Morningside Nursing Home by his daughter, Anna. Cunning, despite his dementia, Willie sneaks behind the wheel of his '86 Impala and escapes, heading north along America's roadways that paved the way for the post-war exodus to the suburbs."

THE GIVEAWAY:  I have TWO copies of the finished paperback edition of Drive 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 one book last week, thanks to author Sarah Stonich and her publicist.  They also made a giveaway copy available, which I will get posted in the next week or so.

-- Vacationland by Sarah Stonich.  Stonich's new book is a collection of interlinked stories all set at a faded vacation resort in northern Minnesota.  It sounds great and I love the paint-by-numbers cover.

Stonich is the author of two other incredibly good novels, These Granite Islands and The Ice Chorus, which I reviewed here.
