Enter to Win One of 4 Signed Paperback Copies of Sex & Sourdough!

TODAY I am opening up my giveaway to celebrate the release of Sex & Sourdough! I will be giving away 4 free signed paper-back copies on this blog! Here's the blurb:

Anders Blankenship never intended to hike the Appalachian Trail alone, but when his boyfriend cancels, Anders steels his courage, leaving the abusive relationship to tackle the long-distance hike. Though a hiking virgin, he’s glad he made the decision when he receives threatening messages from his ex. Luckily, Kevin, an experienced backpacker, takes him under his wing.

Kevin Winters isn’t looking for a hiking partner, let alone a fling with a cute man on the rebound. After learning he has the autoimmune disorder that killed his father, Kevin left his family to wander remote trails. Convinced his future holds only pain and death, Kevin refuses to get close to anyone. The family sourdough recipes he recreates over a campfire are his only solace.

In the wilderness, Anders and Kevin discover a lot of common ground. While the future holds uncertainties they may not be ready to deal with, it might also hold the chance for happiness.

The contest will be open until 8:00 PM PST December 31st, 2013.

Official Rules:

  1. To enter, leave a comment on THIS post with a valid email address, or a comment on the corresponding Goodreads post. If you're really uncomfortable leaving your email address, you'll still receive an entry in the drawing for commenting, but you'll have to check back to see the Winners announcement on January 1st!
  2. By entering, you're stating that you are at least 18 years of age.

  3. Winners will be selected using the fun randomizer tool at Because it's neat, free, totally objective, and some twit commandeered the Santa hat I like to draw numbers from for drawings.

  4. Winners will be notified by email and will have 48 hours to reply and tell me where they would like their copy sent.

Also on the agenda:

Friday, December 13th: Sex & Sourdough officially becomes available for purchase! I'll be posting some background info about the book, here and possibly on the Dreamspinner Press Blog!

Saturday, December 14th: I'm scheduled for a Meet the Author chat on the Dreamspinner Press Goodreads Group, provided I don't chicken out. And, I'll be giving away a free ebook to one lucky participant during the chat session!


  1. Ha, I'm the first! Loved "A Casual Weekend Thing" and I've been intrigued with "Sex and Sourdough" ever since I first read the blurb. Is it the thirteenth yet?

  3. I agree, A Casual Weekend Thing was a great read. I'm sure this is just as good. :)

  4. Not to sound repetitive, but yes, A Casual Weekend Thing was a very good read.

  5. I'm going to ring the posting changes, but slightly! I do have A Casual Weekend Thing but it is buried in my large to be read pile - some mining required I think after seeing the 4 glowing reports above!
    Love the interesting covers on both books.

  6. Hi!
    i have a thing for ending up lucky with picking books i have never heard of before, and this was one of those that went into the instant favourites. and i dont even know why. something about the style had me blissfully grinning with my head between the pages.
    very much looking forward to any of your future books!

  7. Loved A Casual Weekend Thing. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of this one!

  8. I'm really interested in the book, but I live in Germany - so I'm not sure if I'm eligible to win. Just in case, my email adresse is marc.darkshade(at)

  9. If you win, I'll do my best to get a copy to you. One of my winners last time was international, and shipping the book as a gift took a little while, but it eventually got there:) Alternatively, I could substitute a .pdf copy at the winner's request.

  10. This sounds good... and yummy! Thank you for the giveaway.


  11. Fun reading about the book at the DSP blog of luck wqith it!


  12. This book has a different hook. Add me to the contest. ;)
