For a blog that only does videos on Sundays regularly, I’m often surprised when folks offer to premiere their book trailers here. I am, however, always flattered, particularly when the trailers are as good as the one you’re seeing here today. The Meaning of Maggie by Megan Jean Sovern falls into the category of books-that-are-turning-my-youth-into-historical-fiction. This appears to be a big trend for 2014 (I’m looking at YOU, Riverman). In this case, the book is set in 1988 and follows one young woman as she navigates her life and the secrets that her family members keep from her.
Cute, right? Now let’s say you wanted to own such a book. Heck, let’s say you wanted to own a signed galley of the book! Well, I’ve never been much of a giveaway gal. Fortunately the Chronicle folks aren’t as lazy. Go here if you’d like to enter to win one of three signed ARCs of this book.
And just for the heck of it, let’s see if my blog is capable of hosting an excerpt of the book. Just in case you’re curious, you understand. Consider it your consolation prize, should you fail to win an ARC:
Thanks to Lara Starr and the lovely folks at Chronicle for thinking of me for this.
