Book Giveaway: A Deep and Gorgeous Thirst

Since July 2010, TNBBC has been bringing authors and readers together every month to get behind the book! This unique experience wouldn't be possible without the generous donations of the authors and publishers involved.


We're baaaack! 
And I'm really excited to to bring you this year's first
Author/Reader Discussion book!


We will be reading and discussing A Deep and Gorgeous Thirst
with author/poet Hosho McCreesh.


In order to stimulate discussion, Hosho and his publisher,
Artistically Declined Press are giving away 6 paper copies to US residents only
and 6 PDF's internationally! 




Here's the goodreads description to whet your appetite:

In the footsteps of Charles Bukowski comes Hosho McCreesh's magnum opus of drunk poetry. Mammoth in size and scope, A Deep & Gorgeous Thirst is unlike any of McCreesh's previous collections.

"A Deep & Gorgeous Thirst is for anyone who's ever had a drinking buddy—and who hasn't? A perfect elegy to the illusions and delusions of alcohol. A book to be tasted and savored.” —Mark SaFranko, author of Hating Olivia, and No Strings


This giveaway will run through January 8th. 
Winners will be announced here and via email on January 9th.


Here's how to enter:

1 - Leave a comment here or in the giveaway thread over at TNBBC on goodreads, stating why you'd like to receive a copy of the book. You MUST be a resident of the US to win a paper copy, so please state your preference and where you reside.

ONLY COMMENT ONCE. MULTIPLE COMMENTS DO NOT GAIN YOU ADDITIONAL CHANCES TO WIN.

2 - State that you agree to participate in the group read book discussion that will run from February 16th through February 22nd. Hosho McCreesh has agreed to participate in the discussion and will be available to answer any questions you may have for him. 

 *If you are chosen as a winner, by accepting the copy you are agreeing to read the book and join the group discussion at TNBBC on Goodreads (the thread for the discussion will be emailed to you before the discussion begins). 

 3 - Your comment must have a way to contact you (email is preferred). 


GOOD LUCK!

  3. While I have no great feelings one way or the other about Bukowski, this still sounds like an intriguing read. I just started The Luminaries, so why not follow that up with another ambitious offering. (I prefer a paper copy.)

    4. Thomisrveaux, since you initially commented before the close of the giveaway, the best I can do is an ebook. The print have all been spoken for by those who specified it before the giveaway ended. Email headed your way now!

  6. I'm a huge fan of Hosho's work -- have been since his poetry collection "For All These Wretched, Beautiful, Insignificant Things...." and his one-off story "Something That's True." And ADP puts out great books (Ryan Bradley does beautiful covers). So I've been eager to get into this one for a while and just haven't found the funds for it yet (so many books, so few dollars). I'd love to participate in the discussion on Goodreads -- it'd be cool to chat with Hosho.
