Along with my passion for writing I have a true love for reading. Â So when I’m fortunate enough to be offered free books, I jump at the opportunity! Â The blog has brought me many good things, including friends, and the occasionally freebie thrown my way is more exciting when it’s a book.
Recently, I received an email from a friendly writer named Jane Newcomer who asked if I would accept a free copy of her first novel called Â “Her Team” which is a story about a woman who wins the chance to manage the Boston Red Sox. Â I like to read…I especially like to read about baseball and Jane was offering the book in eBook format so I could read it on my Kindle (which is second after my MacBook on my list of material things I don’t want to have to live without). Â I’m terrible at writing reviews. Â Back in the early days of my online life, I used to write movie reviews and I could never bring myself to being truly critical of them. Â Same goes with most books that I read. Â These days, the most criticism I can give a book is that I decided to stop reading it before I was finished (I’m at a point where I find time too precious to waste reading a book that I can’t stand). Â So what I’ll say about “Her Team” is that I read the entire thing and enjoyed it!
It was definitely an idea I could get behind…fan wins the opportunity to manage a team for PR reasons…I once wrote a short story about a woman who became the Red Sox shortstop under similar circumstances…so it was fun to read someone else’s take on it.
So for $2.99 you can visit either Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble online and purchase the ebook “Her Story”. Â I’d like to point out that, apart from the free eBook, I wasn’t “paid” to write up this entry. Â Any time I can throw a writer a shout out, I’m happy to do it. Â I would like to thank Jane for reaching out and giving me something entertaining to read during this off-season!
