A Book Giveaway for Author Jo Carson on Goodreads.com

Jo Carson passed away a few days ago. As the below post indicates, I encountered her writing through NPR's host and writer Peter Sagal. His remembrance of Ms. Carson is available here:

For Jo

The below giveaway has ended. I will be mailing copies to the winners this weekend. Thank you to the over 700 people who entered for a chance to win.

I am sponsoring a book giveaway on Goodreads.com to support author Jo Carson's personal fight against cancer.

Jo Carson, as a writing talent and person coping with cancer, was brought to my attention by Peter Sagal, host of NPR's hit show Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! They are friends, and she was a mentor to Peter back in the day. He shared Ms. Carson's story with readers on his blog and asked us to consider making a donation to a support fund.

As an extension of my blogging activities, I've set up a giveaway so a couple of readers will have a chance to try out Jo Carson's work. You can follow the link below to enter the giveaway. Please note, this requires signing up to have a free account on Goodreads.com. This is a fun social networking sight dedicated to books. So I encourage you to sign up anyway.
I also invite you to read my review of this excellent book at Goodreads.com: Teller Tales by Joe Carson
