BOOK GIVEAWAY: Life, Death and Detention
by George Ivanoff - September 18th, 2012
Want a free book? Yes? Excellent — ‘cause I’m giving away two copies of my newly released YA short story collection, Life, Death and Detention.
To win a copy simply go down to the comments section at the end of this post and tell me why I should give you one. The two responses I like best will get a book.
You’ve got a week from today. Entries close on Tuesday 25 September 2012 at 5pm Australian Eastern Time. So hurry up!
So I suppose I should tell you a little about the book. It’s a new edition of my very first book, originally published way back in 1999. I’ve already blogged about it a couple of times — see: “The long and winding road to a new edition” and “Life, Death and Detention”. Here’s the back cover blurb…
Life, Death and Detention is a collection of compelling stories about life in high school. Being a teenager can be fraught with difficulties. Not only do you have to deal with dysfunctional families at home, but with the weirdos at school as well.
Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes disturbing—that’s what life is like for the modern teenager.
If you’d like to read someone else opinion, here are a couple of links to reviews…
This is an impressive collection of stories, highly recommended…
Anastasia Gonis, Buzz Words Books, read full review
Dramatic, emphatic and explosive – the only words available to describe this collection of short stories. George Ivanoff not only has the insight to get into the heads of teenagers and know their every move and thought, but his writing style is short, clear and penetrating.
