Flat out Love by Jessica Park Sales Giveaway

As you can tell by yesterday's post, my good friend Jessica Park released her  new book yesterday ~ Flat-Out Love.  She has poured her heart and soul into this book and you can feel that with each and every word that she wrote. It's truly an amazing book (and I'm not just saying that because she's one of my closest friends).  So in order to help celebrate the release of this incredible book, and help to spread the word, I'm going to have an incentive type giveaway. Right now the book is only available on the Kindle (at the fantastic price of $2.99), but will be available in paperback within the month. So for this giveaway I will be basing it off of the Kindle sales. Keep your eyes out for another giveaway when the paperback copy is released, for those of you that don't own a Kindle.  And don't forget, if you don't own an actual Kindle, you can download this to any of the Kindle apps ~ for your Droid, Blackberry, PC, or IPAD.

Flat-Out Love

Flat-Out Love is a warm and witty novel of family love and dysfunction, deep heartache and raw vulnerability, with a bit of mystery and one whopping, knock-you-to-your-knees romance.

Something is seriously off in the Watkins home. And Julie Seagle, college freshman, small-town Ohio transplant, and the newest resident of this Boston house, is determined to get to the bottom of it.

When Julie's off-campus housing falls through, her mother's old college roommate, Erin Watkins, invites her to move in. The parents, Erin and Roger, are welcoming, but emotionally distant and academically driven to eccentric extremes. The middle child, Matt, is an MIT tech geek with a sweet side ... and the social skills of a spool of USB cable. The youngest, Celeste, is a frighteningly bright but freakishly fastidious 13-year-old who hauls around a life-sized cardboard cutout of her oldest brother almost everywhere she goes.

And there's that oldest brother, Finn: funny, gorgeous, smart, sensitive, almost emotionally available. Geographically? Definitely unavailable. That's because Finn is traveling the world and surfacing only for random Facebook chats, e-mails, and status updates. Before long, through late-night exchanges of disembodied text, he begins to stir something tender and silly and maybe even a little bit sexy in Julie's suddenly lonesome soul.

To Julie, the emotionally scrambled members of the Watkins family add up to something that ... well ... doesn't quite add up. Not until she forces a buried secret to the surface, eliciting a dramatic confrontation that threatens to tear the fragile Watkins family apart, does she get her answer.
