Book Giveaway: LIFT: a Memoir by Rebecca K. O'Connor

Rebecca is offering a lucky reader a signed copy of her award-winning memoir on falconry, LIFT! (see details below). If the winner already owns LIFT, they may request the author's romance novel, Falcon's Return , instead.

About the book: Lift, A Memoir does an excellent job of combining a description of the art of falconry with the memories of a woman becoming a confident falconer in spite of growing up with uncertainty in her personal life. Left by her parents at a young age, she learns about birds and the natural world from her grandfather, and develops a love of birds including hawks and falcons. She becomes a bird trainer, naturalist, and owner of a peregrine falcon. This is her story.  (see my book review )

Rebecca is also offering a coupon code for an eBook she is working on - RISE, which will be available July 1, the same date LIFT will be available on Kindle!

Rebecca: "RISE is a collection of essays, short stories and poetry that ties into LIFT with more falconry and backstory. It also includes a stand-alone excerpt of my current novel in progress. It will be available on Amazon, B&N, Smashwords and others. I will be giving a coupon code to get RISE for free to anyone who has read LIFT. (bought, borrowed or checked out from the library).

Anyone who can answer, “Who did it turn out owned the peregrine that landed on the roof of Rebecca’s house when she was a child?” and send the answer to me at rebecca@blueskywriting.com will get the coupon code. Otherwise, RISE will be available for .99. Please check out the trailer for RISE here."
