THE WHITE BIRDS OF MORNING GIVEAWAY!

In celebration of The White Birds of Morning's win in the historical novel category at the Word Guild Awards in Toronto I am doing a giveaway to introduce my readers to the series. Now the writing is smooth and clean and tight and both novels published in the series have been finalists for literary awards (with White Birds winning the award). Both are shot through with God and faith. But they are not Amish and they are not your typical fiction. While the first one in the series (Zo)is under 50,000 words and can be read in one extended sitting, the second in the series (White Birds) is 300,000 words and is very in-depth. Both novels are highly readable and entertaining but both are very intense and complex and challenging as well. Is the series your cup of tea? Well, if you can handle books that are a cross between the Bible + Saving Private Ryan + All Quiet on the Western Front + Message in a Bottle + War and Peace + Of Gods and Men then you will love the series. Also check on the reviews for both books on Amazon. Feel adventurous? Ready to take the ride? Then post a comment under this blog and you're in. I'll pick the winners July 15th! God bless & all the best! The prize includes Zo and The White Birds of Morning. There are 2 more books to come in the series. CONTEST DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JULY 31ST MIDNIGHT PACIFIC! CHEERS!

Since our families became a part of each others' lives while you were on your 2 week hiatus, I want to become a fan! Is this the 2nd book of the series you spoke of or is the 2nd book of 4 that you published just before traveling Face of Heaven? Anyway...love the cover of this one!!;) look forward to reading Murray Andrew Pura!
