Thanks to Megan at HarperCollins, we have two (2) copies to give away of the forthcoming debut novel by Dana Precious, Born Under a Lucky Moon. This book will be released by Morrow Paperback on Tuesday, February 8, 2011 ($14.95). Here is a synopsis of the story and a brief profile of the author.
Born Under a Lucky Moon is the tale of two very important (but distant) years in the lives of Jeannie Thompson and her (embarrassing, crazy) colorful family members to whom “things” just happen. From the Great Lakes of Michigan to Los Angeles and back again, it is a story of surprise marriages, a renegade granny, a sprinkler system cursed by the gods, and myriad other factors Jeannie blames for her full-tilt and out-of-control existence. But it’s also about good surprises – like an unexpected proposal that might just open Jeannie’s eyes to her real place among the people she loves most in the world… the same ones she ran far away from to begin with.
“Lucky the reader who picks up this funny, charming and touching debut novel. I loved it.” Susan Elizabeth Phillips, New York Times bestselling author
Dana Precious lives in L.A. with her husband and son. She has two dogs: a small border terrier named Thompson (as in Hunter – long story) and Bella, a very large bullmastiff whose activity of choice is sleeping on the couch and watching Oprah. Prior to writing, Diana worked for several major film studios.
