Giveaway and Prompt

I'm giving away a copy of Off Sides on my FB page! Winner will be announced on Wednesday.

Here's a little bit about the book:

“I'm not sure what possessed me to do it. Maybe it was the impossible expectations I faced, maybe it was my own self-loathing. But I just knew I needed something different to happen. I needed derail me from my current path. Otherwise, I would become lost...a hollowed out shell of a man. So I did it. I approached her, then I pursued her, then I made her mine. And my life was saved...”

Ryan Burnham is the privileged son of a U.S. Congressman and captain of his university’s hockey team. While he is on the verge of fulfilling his dreams to play in the NHL, his parents want him on a different course. One he is expected to accept for the sake of his family’s public image.

Forced to abandon her music career after the heart breaking death of her parents, Danny Cross exists on the opposite side of the tracks from Ryan. She is struggling to make her own way, working two jobs, attending college part time and volunteering in a homeless shelter. She is on a mission to build her own success.

With a chance meeting, their vastly different worlds collide, causing each to evaluate whether they are truly on the correct path to self-fulfillment and happiness. Can their relationship survive? Particularly when others are against them every step of the way. A lot can happen in just ten short days...

Sawyer is also giving away a copy of Hell's Hollow on her FB page. So go win that too!

And now, for the Monday morning writing prompt, in honor of the two giveaways, I'm taking a phrase from Sawyer's synopsis: "a hollowed out shell" 

Write about a hollowed out shell -- it could be an actual seashell or it could be a character who is hollowed or it could be a personal experience, a time when you felt hollowed out inside. 

Ready? Go! :D
