Book Giveaway: Awakenings by Edward Lazellari


I have an extra copy of Edward Lazellari’s novel (from Tor) to give away to one lucky reader.  The competition is open to U.S. residents only (unless you want to chip in a couple bucks via Paypal to help cover shipping).  Before I get to the book information, here’s how to enter:

  • Leave a comment saying something other than “please enter me” or “give me the book” or whatever.  Say something amusing or dumb or goofy or funny.  I don’t care what it is so long as you do something other than tell me you want the book.
Simple?  Good.  You can also improve your chances by doing any of the following (+1 for each):
  • Share this post on Twitter (use @shaunduke in the tweet), Google + (link it), Facebook (link it), blog about it (link it), or put it up on any other social network or service (just give me a link).
That’s it!  The giveaway ends on Oct. 2nd, 2011.  Winners will be chosen at random and announced on Oct. 3rd, 2011.
Now for the book stuff.  Here’s the cover synopsis:

Cal MacDonnell is a happily married New York City cop with a loving family. Seth Raincrest is a washed-up photographer who has alienated even his closest friends. The two have nothing in common—except that they both suffer from retrograde amnesia. It’s as if they just appeared out of thin air thirteen years ago, and nothing has been able to restore their memories. Now their forgotten past has caught up to them with a vengeance. 

Cal’s and Seth’s lives are turned upside down as they are stalked by otherworldly beings who know about the men’s past lives. But these creatures aren’t here to help; they’re intent on killing anyone who gets in their way. In the balance hangs the life of a child who might someday restore a broken empire to peace and prosperity. With no clue why they’re being hunted, Cal and Seth must accept the aid of a strange and beautiful woman who has promised to unlock their secrets. The two must stay alive long enough to protect their loved ones, recover their true selves—and save two worlds from tyranny and destruction. 

Awakenings launches a captivating fantasy saga by an amazing and talented new storyteller.

 Ben Bova also says it’s a good book, according to his cover blurb.
