GIVEAWAY! (For The Bibliophile In Us All)

Yes, you read it right! I'm doing a GIVEAWAY! For all you book lovers out there, I'm gong to make your day. I was contacted by Penguin Random House, they asked me, since I had loved and supported Brad Taylor's previous books, would I like to giveaway his latest paperback, "Ghosts Of War"?Yes, yes I would!

I have truly enjoyed Brad Taylor's Pike Logan series. Not only does he write heart stopping thrillers but even better, his books are teaching tools. The reader learns about current Global politics, conflicts and military responses. Every book Taylor writes is so easy to read and enjoy but just through osmosis, I learned amazing amounts of details about terrorism and US military response to that threat.

I am so thrilled to be able to participate in promoting Brad Taylor's latest paperback "The Ghosts Of War" (Kindle, Paperback, Hardcover). It comes out at the end of this month, August 29th, 2017. The publisher has also agreed to give away a paperback edition of "No Fortunate Son" (Kindle, Paperback, Hardcover). You can learn all about Taylor's main character, Pike Logan and his backstory before jumping right in to "The Ghosts of War". I started reading Brad Taylor's series with "No Fortunate Son" and was hooked from there.

Brad Taylor isn't just a spectacular writer with a good imagination, he's the real deal. These books are written by an actual badass with real world experience in the military. Brad Taylor is a former Lieutenant Colonel who is a twenty-one year veteran of the U.S. Army Infantry and Special Forces. He also put in eight years with the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment popularly known as Delta Force. I have found that as I read his books I look at what's happening on the world stage differently. In the last few books I've learned about international political infighting, ISIS and suicide bombers. In this book Taylor takes on Putin, Russian corruption and the fabled Nazi gold train from WWII.

Here's a list of all of Brad Taylor's books and short stories. If you don't win this giveaway I wanted you to have easy access to his books, in order. They're so worth your reading time. Normally military thrillers are not my favorite mysteries but I was addicted within minutes of picking up "No Fortunate Son" and have been an avid fan ever since.

Praise for :Ghosts of War":
“Brad Taylor continues to solidify his claim as the best pure action thriller writer out there today....Ghosts of War combines the anticipatory genius of Tom Clancy’s geopolitical tomes with the high-stakes plotting mastered by the likes of Brad Thor and Vince Flynn. A slam bang, read-it-till-you-drop thriller with as much brains as brawn.”- Providence Journal

“In this tenth book featuring Pike Logan, author Brad Taylor will have your heart pounding and your pulse racing out of control.”- Suspense Magazine

Ghosts of War might not just be Brad Taylor’s best novel but the best thriller of the year.”-

“Brad Taylor continues to amaze....[Ghosts of War] uses a bigger canvas than [Taylor] has employed previously, yet his transition is flawless, and is every bit as suspenseful, exciting and believable as his earlier novels. One can almost see the movement in the real world, following what he lays out in exquisite detail, in the next month or even in the next week.”-

  1. I LOVE BOOKS. let's see. Michael Connelly, Dale Brown, Dee Henderson, Irene Hannon, and Brad Taylor (but of course) <3

  2. Oops! Late for the party, lol! I enjoy books too but don't get a lot of time to read them... I really love Helen Fieldin... Dawn French... basically books that I can totally relate to and they make me laugh. I just baught Paul a Kindle Voyage for his birthday... I'm a little envious!

  3. I Love Books too - who doesn'T? Hugs, Valerie

  4. Thanks for your review. I was not familiar with this author so it is one more I will add to my list of new ones to try out. Your book marks are lovely.

  5. I'm more of a non fiction reader...but thanks anyway.

  6. I LOVE BOOKS!!! Yes, I would like to win! I love historic works, novels and true stories, and classics with the occasional suspense/detective work thrown in.

  7. I LOVE BOOKS. I look forward to reading this author. Thank you. Blessings, Janet

  8. I LOVE BOOKS!!! I've never actually read his work, but would like to. I recently spent quite a bundle down at our local bookstore. LOL I have nine bookcases in my house. And I need more. LOL Have a wonderful day and thank you for the opportunity to win this contest!

  9. I love books! I do a link list of art tutorials, reviews and giveaways. Your post is a bit off topic for it, but since it includes an original art bookmark, I'll add it to tomorrow's list and hopefully send you some new readers.

  10. I do love books, but somehow my reading of books has been replaced by reading blogs on my computer. I am just about to rejoin a Book Club and regain a part of my life that I always enjoyed. It sounds as if Brad Taylor would appeal to both my husband and I, I like the idea of being better informed by osmosis about Putin and Russia!
    Your handmade bookmarks are lovely - have you ever thought of being an International Artist in Residence? One of my friends has just done this, you could come out our way! I have written about this today on the blog as I was so impressed with this as an idea.

  11. I love books especially mysteries and thrillers. I alternate between hard copies and books on my kindle ap. I do a lot of traveling to see my new granddaughter so books keep me busy on the plane.

  12. Sob sob...I LOVE BOOKS but I'm too late for your fabulous giveaway! That's what happens when you have visitors and playing the hostess with the mostess! I don't think I've ever read a Brad Taylor book because by the reviews I'm sure I'd have remembered.
    Hubby has just got back into reading books now that he's newly retired and I'm always on the look out for new authors. I'm currently listening to an audio book by Elizabeth Gilbert of Eat, Pray, Love fame. This particular book is called Big Magic which is about creative living beyond fear. I think you'd love it.
    Talking of love... I LOVE LOVE LOVE your bookmarks! There I've said it! Good luck to all entrants and thanks to you and Penguin Random House for the opportunity of winning the giveaway...even if I missed it! xoxo


Please leave me a comment, I've sure missed hearing from you!
