Journaling Fame by Allison KugelJournaling Fame by Allison Kugel

Thanks Jaime Katz of Full Scale Media, I am giving away one print copy of Journaling Fame by Allison Kugel.

Description of Journaling Fame by Allison Kugel

Journaling Fame takes readers inside the turbulent mind and precocious soul of celebrity journalist, Allison Kugel, as she recalls the evolution and fall out from a near paralyzing anxiety disorder while navigating a decade interviewing some of Hollywood’s most famous (and infamous) names. Between numerous celebrity interactions and harrowing memories of youth and adolescents, she attempts to piece together the moments of her life that, both, built her career and fostered severe panic attacks that threatened to undo it all.

Allison provides an ultimate insider’s guide into the celebrity journalism and publicity machines that the public doesn’t see, along with shared personal memories of high-profile Hollywood friendships. She pulls no punches when going into excruciating detail about her experiences with anxiety, panic attacks and obsessive compulsive disorder. Her memoir seamlessly weaves in and out of her professional triumphs and personal struggles with self-examination, humor and irony. 

For a decade, Allison Kugel was entrenched in the culture of celebrity, as an entertainment, pop culture and political journalist whose work was quoted and re-printed by hundreds of media outlets, worldwide. She is co-founder and co-creator of the Upitch App, the world’s first mobile application matching press releases and story pitches with targeted journalists. She is a lifelong philanthropist for various animal and children’s charities. Allison splits her time between Florida and New York with her hilarious son and a willful Shih Ztu.

Just Josh by Moira RutherfordJust Josh by Moira Rutherford

Thanks to the author, I am giving away one print copy of Just Josh by Moira Rutherford.

Description of Just Josh by Moira Rutherford

Just Josh is a wonderful narrative of how hard it is for every unwanted animal (in this case a dog) to find a forever home. Written as if by Josh himself, the author brings him into your heart and mind in such a way that it is almost impossible to not read in just one or two sittings.

The book has happy, sad and funny moments but the overriding feel is one of positivity; no matter what life throws at you, staying positive and having hope are life’s strongest supports, whether canine or human.

Praise for Just Josh by Moria Rutherford

“What a lovely book about an abandoned street dog from Kalkan Turkey. So beautifully written, with touching poems. following the struggles experienced by Josh and his fellow companions on the streets of Kalkan. Sometimes sad, but always hopeful. A great read. Well done Moira! Please don’t make this the last book. You certainly kept us all captivated.”- Teresa Mardell, Lulu Reviewer

“A lovely story which pulls at the heartstrings and challenges the emotions. Difficult to put down and definitely a book for dog lovers.”- Tony Saunders, Lulu Reviewer

“This is a beautifully written true story about Josh the street dog, dumped as a puppy, his injuries and recovery, and his eventual arrival at his forever home and “golden basket” in Holland, with a fan club of bloggers cheering him on all the way through. Congratulations to author Moira Rutherford for her wonderfully candid account of Josh’s journey to happiness.’- Matthew Day, Lulu Reviewer

Graves (Abby Endicott 2) by Pamela WechsleGraves (Abby Endicott 2) by Pamela Wechsle

Thanks to Shailyn Tavella of  Minotaur Books, I am giving away 3 print copies of Graves (Abby Endicott 2) by Pamela Wechsler.

Description of Graves (Abby Endicott 2) by Pamela Wechsler

Abby Endicott, the chief of the District Attorney’s homicide unit in Boston, returns in the heart-racing follow-up to Mission Hill. 

Things are looking good for Abby: she’s top pick to be the next District Attorney, and her musician boyfriend Ty has moved in, despite her upper crust family’s objections. But a serial killer is on the loose, and with two college-aged girls dead and another missing, time is running out. When the sons of a prominent government official are linked to the murders, Abby pushes back, stopping at nothing to find justice for the girls. This time, the killer could be right under her nose, and she may be the next victim.

In The Graves, former prosecutor turned television writer Pamela Wechsler delivers a tense and enthralling Boston-set thriller about the intersection of power, privilege, and justice.

Praise for Graves (Abby Endicott 2) by Pamela Wechsler

“Wechsler expertly balances serious subject matter with Abby’s self-effacing, often funny first-person narration. Readers will be eager for Abby’s next case.”– Publishers Weekly
