Giveaway: Flashback by Dan Simmons

The United States is near total collapse. But 87% of the population doesn't care: they're addicted to flashback, a drug that allows its users to re-experience the best moments of their lives. After ex-detective Nick Bottom's wife died in a car accident, he went under the flash to be with her; he's lost his job, his teenage son, and his livelihood as a result.
Nick may be a lost soul but he's still a good cop, so he is hired to investigate the murder of a top governmental advisor's son. This flashback-addict becomes the one man who may be able to change the course of an entire nation turning away from the future to live in the past.
A provocative novel set in a future that seems scarily possible, FLASHBACK proves why Dan Simmons is one of our most exciting and versatile writers.

  1. What comes to my mind is the time right after hubby and I got married. We lived in a 3 story condo and hubby was turning out the lights and heading up the stairs at bedtime. He misjudged the stairway location in the dark, and actually fell down the basement stairs instead of going up. Thankfully, he didn't get hurt, but we have laughed about it many times over the years. Those were the good old days!

    Thanks for a great giveaway, please count me in.

  3. One that my husband and I were just talking about the other day. While on the Oregon coast we climbed down a very rocky path to get closer to the ocean. While sitting on the rocks with the waves crashing just a few feet away a sea lion surfaced, he did an actual double take when he saw the humans on the rocks.

  13. Sounds like a thrilling read.

    Funny Flashback? Oh yeah. Many!

    I gotta say, though, I love it when I remember my daughter as a toddler singing (while rocking back and forth) "I'm a Saliva, I'm gonna make it!" (original song is Destiny's Child "I'm a Survivor")

    Oooh, fun! Okay, here is my flashback (weird but true): One halloween I was late coming home from work, and - as usual - had left my apt back door unlocked. Well, by the time I'd got up the stairs to my apt I had to go *pee* really, really bad lol
    So there I am, I go into my dark bathroom, proceed to sit down, when next to the wall beside me comes this hideous sound and two huge glowing eyes staring at me out of the dark.
    One of my best friends had punked my bathroom with a huge, motion sensored fake owl right beside the toiled - hidden next to the wall!!! I about had a heart attack lol

  18. A funny flashback ... hmm. We love to recall something my daughter would say when she was little and learning the alphabet. She would say "ABCDEFGHIJK and a little pea..." It was so cute, as that is what she heard and interpreted as the alphabet. We still like to razz her about it sometimes!

  20. Thank you Freda! I look forward to reading Flashback!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.

Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.

Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.

The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
