Book Giveaway, Chasing Hope

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

(Yes, lest the giveaway badge appearing on your dashboard be deceiving, this is a brand-new giveaway opportunity!)
Hello, everyone! Today's post involves yet another giveaway. Last week, I opened my mail to find a book that I'd already received for the purpose of reviewing, so... that means, I have an extra copy up for grabs. This one is a new author to me and I think to many of us, so here are the reasons you may want to enter:
a.) the cover art is gorgeous! Like seriously! This book is a stunner.
b.) the story is setting up to be promising. Not far into so far, but it's... interesting in the best way; if my book radar can be trusted, it's going to be more of a coming-of-age story than anything else.
c.) who doesn't like the opportunity to try a new author!? Plus, this book will arrive with no pressure to review! Nice breather, right!?

Read on below for all the product details and rules of this giveaway!

The giveaways is open to U.S and Canadian readers. Also, please I will just ask that anyone who leaves a comment under "anonymous," please leave the same name you enter into the widget in your comment - it's not nearly as easy to try and match comments when there is no name and in fairness to everyone else, I want to be able to be sure everyone who used the Rafflecopter correctly has a fair chance at winning against those who abuse it - believe it or not, there have been a couple people that I could not verify. So please, I don't mean to overwhelm, but just keep this in mind when entering future giveaways. I'd sure appreciate it!
Synopsis: A Personal Drama of Shattered Dreams and Second Chances
A talented runner fully committed to Olympic dreams, Sabrina Rice's future was shattered by a devastating diagnosis. One forfeited scholarship and several years later, she has new goals and dreams that have nothing to do with running--something that's become far too painful to think on.
Until the day she sees Brandy Philip running across the community college campus, easily outpacing security. Sabrina immediately recognizes world-class speed, and it's all the more painful that it belongs to a teenage graffiti artist. When a chance encounter brings the two young women together, Sabrina becomes Brandy's best hope for staying out of juvenile hall. Soon, Sabrina begins to feel an uncomfortable nudge that her new life is just about to be toppled...that God may be calling her to minister to this talented but troubled girl.

a Rafflecopter giveaway Best of luck!


  1. Woo hoo!! I wanted to review this one, but it didn't work out. I actually hung out on Bethany House's Book Banter with Kathyrn yesterday, she's really cool. :)

    1. Neat! I love "meeting" authors who don't mind answering reader's questions or just chatting with them. It's always fun to get to know them through the convenience of social media and we've had lots of cool experiences since we started reviewing, which is awesome! :)

  2. I haven't read this book yet. My current read is Serendipity by Cathy Marie Hake.

    1. Best of luck then, Kerry. :)

      Aw, I remember reading some of Cathy's novels; as I recall, they were all quite fun!

  3. I haven't heard of this yet, but it looks good! I'm currently reading Ring of Secrets by Roseanna White. :)

    1. It is good so far, Jillian - definitely less romance and more "coming-of-age" story, but there's nothing wrong with that. :)

      Ooo! I've heard excellent things about Roseanna's books - happy reading!
