A family of readers

Congratulations to Lori Lambright, of Centerville, Indiana, who won a signed copy of Becoming Clementine and a gift card to the International Spy Museum Spy Store! Although I’ve never had the chance to meet Lori, the town she lives in happens to be just down the road from Richmond, Indiana, where I grew up.

Here’s what Lori had to say about reading: “We are a family of Readers! However, my daughter Emma said she had lost interest in reading so I told her that once you hit on an author you Really like then that will change! She began reading my daughter Kara’s copy of Velva Jean Learns to Drive and she couldn’t put it down! She raced through that and then onto Velva Jean Learns to Fly as I started the first book. We are Hooked! So fun to share this love of your writing with each other!”

Happy reading (and spying), Lori (and Kara and Emma, too)!

Another giveaway will be posted tomorrow, so check back here soon…

Becoming Clementine Giveaway!

Velva Jean’s third adventure finds her in occupied France during World War II… as a spy.

Elizabeth McIntosh, author of Sisterhood of Spies, and one of the most celebrated spy girls of the OSS, says, “Reading this splendid novel allowed me to vicariously share wartime adventures with a sister spy. Velva Jean had everything that was required of us operatives in OSS (Office of Strategic Services), a forerunner of the CIA. She had the courage to survive undercover behind enemy lines in constant danger. She carried out life-threatening orders without question and bravely faced capture. Becoming Clementine is a spellbinding spy saga.”

And Pam Jenoff, bestselling author of The Kommandant’s Girl and The Diplomat’s Wife, writes, “Becoming Clementine is a spirited tale of courage, honor and loyalty. Jennifer Niven succeeds in not only illuminating an important and little-known role played by women during the war, but creating an unforgettable and heartfelt story that will resonate with readers far and wide.”

Becoming Clementine will be released September 25, but you can enter now for your chance to win an early bird copy and a $25 gift card to the International Spy Museum’s Spy Store!
