Whenever a new book comes out, I make a habit of giving away several copies of it.  And I’m always on the lookout for creative ways to do this.

Sing Me Home is the story of young Aria Morgan.  Orphaned at a young age, Aria is shuffled between relatives before finding herself struggling to survive in a horrifyingly abusive home. Her only consistent source of comfort is music and the memory of her mother singing.  When one terrifying act robs Aria of the ability to sing, she embarks on a quest for a new life.  Along the way, she will encounter a joyful homeless man, a cowboy who works for free and others who will teach her what faith, family and song are really all about.

Some early reviews include:

“Unforgettable,”  Jason, an independent publishing agent

“It will bring you to tears, make you angry at the world and then leave you smiling with a great sense of hope,”  Katie, one of the first readers of the book.
