Book Giveaway: Romance for Delinquents

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.

It's the first of the month and you know what that means.
It's time to bring you May's Author/Reader Discussion book!

We will be reading and discussing Romance for Delinquents 

Michael and his publisher Foxhead Books are giving us 10 print copies 
to giveaway to US residents. 

Here's the goodreads description to whet your appetite:

In stories that bring to mind Breece D'J Pancake and Harry Crews, but in a voice all their own, Michael Wayne Hampton's characters fight the hard fight—often facing a life and landscape as stubborn and unforgiving as a rusted engine bolt. Told in voices that are remarkable for their authenticity, Hampton's people are memorable, his prose is lapidary in its precision, and his stories are hard to forget. 
-Rob Roberge, author of The Cost of Living

"Michael Wayne Hampton is a born storyteller. And that doesn't just mean he can spin a good yarn, the kind that keeps you ear-stuck and tongue-tied, listening hard. He also has the storyteller's art of absolute authenticity, fidelity to hard-knocked voices - while writing prose that lifts and transcends, that fiercely proclaims that through the ugly, all of us are living some kind of beautiful.”
-Amber Sparks, author of May We Shed These Human Bodies 

"These are bold, insistent stories of people dancing along the edges of epiphany and oblivion. Hampton’s America is ragged, dangerous, and utterly engaging." 
-Ian Stansel, author of Everybody’s Irish
