Giveaway: The Girl Who Stopped Swimming

Hachette Books has very generously offered to send five copies of The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jackson to Fresh Ink readers.

The giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only and Hachette cannot mail to P.O. boxes. I will accept entries until midnight, Sunday April 19, 2009.


Described as Southern Gothic and "Packed with Jackson's trademark outrageous characters, sparkling dialogue, and defiantly twisting plotting, The Girl Who Stopped Swimming is destined both to delight Jackson's loyal fans and capture a whole new audience." Amazon description.

To entry simply post a comment here indicating that you'd like a copy. Please make sure that your email is provided if you don't have a blog. Entries without a blog link or email address will be disqualified.

Any followers or subcribers who enter will automatically be given a second entry. Just remind me in your comment that you are one.

I look forward to reading my own copy when it arrives and selecting five winning booklovers.
