A Winner, and Giveaway #2

Tuesday, August 14, 2012
Congratulations to Kittie Howard, who won Poetry Pack, my giveaway prize from last week!  Kittie, I’ll be in touch soon to make arrangements to mail you a copy.

This week’s prize will be a copy of my friend Carla Sandrin’s debut book, Uncorrupted.  Carla and I first met about ten years ago through our mutual friend, Trish.  When we realized that we all loved to write, we formed a writers’ group so we could work together. Trish and Carla have been a huge part of my success, and now I’m excited to tell you about Carla’s book.

Uncorrupted tells the story of Clare McTavish, a young woman whose atheist mother has just died.  However, the more Clare gets to know about her, the more she realizes there is much more to her mother’s story than Clare ever knew.  The story ranges in locale from downtown Boston to the slums of Kenya, and includes both a romance and an international scandal.  But, at its core, Uncorrupted is about the power of good to overcome evil.

I would love to give a copy of Uncorrupted to one of my readers, and this contest is open to everyone, regardless of where you live.  Just like last week, if you want to enter, be a follower of my blog and leave a comment below.  And you’ll receive an extra entry if you also tweet about the contest and let me know in a separate comment.  You may enter until midnight (EDT) Monday, August 20 and the winner will be announced on Tuesday, August 21.

Congratulations to Kittie!
I always think of writing as such a solitary effort. How does a writer's group help in this endeavor? Advice after writing something? Critique?

Beth said...

Great question, Barbara. Generally we write independently, then exchange manuscripts (usually a chapter at a time) for each other's opinions. Having another set of eyes to read what we've written can help to clear up things the writer missed, or took for granted. It's also great moral support; typically if one of us is discouraged about our writing, the other two aren't and can help pick us up!
