Giveaway: How To Be Brave by E. Katherine Kottaras

Good morning, everyone, and happy November! I hope those of you who are doing NaNoWriMo are off to a great start, and I hope the rest of you are enjoying beautiful fall weather. For me, the arrival of colder temperatures and freshly-fallen leaves always means it's time to dive into atmospheric stories that may or may not feature a supernatural side. However, emotional contemporaries never go out of season, which is why I'm so excited about the giveaway I have for you today.

Thanks to the lovely people at Kaye Publicity, I get to participate in the launch of debut author E. Katherine Kottaras's How To Be Brave by hosting a giveaway for a copy of the book. If you want to find out what the story's about before you enter, here's a bit of information. 

about the book

Release: November 3, 2015 from St. Martin's Press
An emotional contemporary YA novel about love, loss, and having the courage to chase the life you truly want.

Reeling from her mother's death, Georgia has a choice: become lost in her own pain, or enjoy life right now, while she still can. She decides to start really living for the first time and makes a list of fifteen ways to be brave - all the things she's wanted to do but never had the courage to try. As she begins doing the things she's always been afraid to do - including pursuing her secret crush, she discovers that life doesn't always go according to plan. Sometimes friendships fall apart and love breaks your heart. But once in a while, the right person shows up just when you need them most - and you learn that you're stronger and braver than you ever imagined.

  1. I was brave during my first year teaching high school. I was in over my head and teaching at an urban school in LA. It was tough and I still don't know how I did it.

  2. I must say the blog post is just useful for everyone else reading it because the information and knowledge it contains is very important. I like the post! Excellent job! Keep sharing such valuable information through your blogs.
