  1. Leila,

    Wow! What a cool giveaway–I would love to participate. I have recently released the 2nd edition of my memoir, Adopted Reality. It’s currently free on “Story Cartel” — and I’ll be doing a book tour and promotion starting April 29.

    Description: In a September 11 memoir unlike any you’ve read, this thrilling, psychological adventure follows the ups and downs of bipolar, and examines relationships biological and circumstantial. Laura had always been Miss Perfect—making excellent grades, showing promising dance ability, trying her best to be there for her friends and family.
    But she just couldn’t do it anymore.
    They say not to make more than one big change in your life at a time, but with a break up, a job change, a move across the country, and the separation of her adoptive parents, when Laura gets the opportunity to reunite with her birth mom—she is not passing it up! She is elated to meet her biological mother, who she connects with instantly. All of this is undoubtedly too much for anyone, but especially so for someone who has struggled her entire life with depression and mania.
    After a beloved uncle dies in the Twin Towers, the tension that has been building explodes and all Laura can do is sit back and watch as her adopted family and her sanity quickly disintegrate. While everyone proudly believes she’s fulfilling her dream to dance, Laura insanely thinks she’s a spy for the Illuminati who unwittingly perpetrated 9/11. She nearly loses her mind permanently, and she must now learn to exist between the highs and lows, living forever a recovering perfectionist, and ultimately discovering her own Adopted Reality.

    Thanks so much!

  2. Hi Leila, This is a comment for your first giveaway. I am signed up for the blog updates and newsletters.
    “Pilgrimage: Sturgis to Wounded Knee and Back Home, a Memoir” begins with a motorcycle road trip to the Bacchanalia of Sturgis Bike Week. I planned to whoop it up with biker friends in Sturgis. Instead, an unplanned detour to Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge Reservation leads to confrontation with a troubling family history. One ancestor fought in the Indian Wars and died from a wound sustained at the massacre of Native American Sioux at Wounded Knee. Another helped the last of the Pottawatomie avoid starvation during a harsh winter in Indiana.

    The journey in “Pilgrimage” even takes the reader across the Pacific to the Himalayas. In a remote mountain village I found a community much like the traditional Sioux of the Black Hills, but who successfully fought off British invaders. Now, I work with the Rai people of Nepal in Basa village. It’s not about atonement for the near genocide of Native Americans. It is about reconciliation between white Westerners and indigenous people.

    But, it is back home in Indiana where reconciliation is finally found.

  3. Hi Leila,
    I will be short! 🙂

    A professor of history at the University of Saint Peterburg, a scientific institute in the bleak Russian countryside, an ‘impossible’ painting, a tablet computer.
    ‘The Guns of Napoleon’ is a ‘time-travel’ story, which will lead us to Napoleon’s Great Campaign of Russia and then to a new present.

    This short story will be soon followed by longer novel, based on it, to be published within a few months.
