Join a Pearlsong
Conversation with Rebecca Brock,
Rebecca Brock loves all things zombie, tentacled creatures, and horror. So how and why did the author of short stories in the zombie-fiction anthologies The Best of All Flesh and History is Dead cast her first novel as a sweet holiday-themed love story with nary a monster in sight—unless you count the plump heroine's inner demons?
Join my teleconference call with the author of The Giving Season this coming Thursday (November 12, 2009) at noon Eastern/11 a.m. Central and find out!
In The Giving Season, just released by Pearlsong Press as an original trade paperback, it is Jessy Monroe's self-esteem issues—not the undead—that jeopardize her chances of achieving happily ever after. Stranded at a Minnesota bus stop during a blizzard, Jessy cautiously accepts Michael Forrester's invitation to spend the holidays with his family. Her insecurity flares when Michael's gorgeous ex-wife appears. Will Jessy be able to learn how to let Michael—and his family—love her just as she is?
Email pearlsongconversations @ pearlsong.com for the details (teleconference phone number & access code) and call the teleconference line at noon Eastern (11 a.m. Central) to listen and/or participate in the hour-long Conversation. (Please note that this month's call is on a Thursday rather than the usual second Wednesday of the month.) The teleconference line will handle up to 96 participants―first come, first served. There is no cost for the call other than your usual long distance charges, if any.
We'd love to hear from you! If you don't feel comfortable speaking up during the teleconference―which will be recorded―then email your questions or comments to me at peggyelam @ pearlsong.com.
We are recording these Pearlsong Conversations and making them available for listening online or downloading after the calls. You can find links to the previous Conversation recordings on the Pearlsong Conversations webpage. See http://www.pearlsong.com/pearlsongconversations.htm for more info and the archived recordings.
Once again: Request the call-in number & access code by emailing pearlsongconversations @ pearlsong.com (without the spaces).
Read the first chapter of The Giving Season in a PDF downloadable here. Buy the book at your favorite online retailer (Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Powells.com) or ask for it at your local bookstore.
I hope I'll hear your voice―or at least you'll hear Rebecca's and mine―on November `12!
Peggy Elam, Ph.D.
