A Native's Tongue by Michael D. Dennis + Giveaway! (Open internationally)

A Native's Tongue
Michael D. Dennis

Love and tragedy collide in Dennis’s poignant new novel, A Native’s Tongue.

Charlie Winters has never been an overachiever. He is used to just getting by while living with his single mother and working a dead-end job at a cheesesteak stand. Meanwhile, he’s constantly grappling with the voice of his sister, who died in a tragic car accident years earlier, echoing in his head.

So when Violet, an older woman, sets her sights on Charlie and refuses to let go, he follows along. He soon finds himself immersed in a destructive relationship that still fails to fill the void within him.

But then he meets Jennifer, a mystical young woman whose energy and life convinces Charlie to pursue her, even through the darkest corners of Los Angeles, and sets their lives upon a path that can’t be stopped.

Escaping to the California coast, Charlie and Jennifer finally find what they’ve always needed. But a sudden illness quickly pulls them both back to LA. It is there, amid the sex, drugs, and split-second decisions that pulse through the city, that tragedy strikes—threatening to tear Charlie and Jennifer apart forever.


Books à la Mode is giving away one print copy of A Native's Tongue and one digital copy—that's two winners total! Hooray!!

To enter, all you have to do is tell me:
What country do you currently live in, and what's your favorite thing about it? I know everyone's always wishing they lived in a huge city or on an exotic island (unless you're one of those people who are lucky enough to already be living there!), but there are always advantages of home turfs that we tend to take for granted :)
I currently live in the US and this is going to sound strange to people who have lived here their whole lives, but I love how much wide open space there is! The US is so huge that everything's big: the stores, the homes, the yards... there's so much room for public parks, parking lots, restaurants, and so on. Every other country I've visited has been considerably smaller, which means everything was so cramped. Even as a tourist or foreigner, I feel incredibly claustrophobic in countries that don't have as much land as America does. So while the US does have its fair share of negatives, that is one fantastic thing about it!

Please make your comment MEANINGFUL. Comments solely consisting of stock responses or irrelevant fluff like "Thanks for the giveaway!" will not be considered for entry. Michael and I really want to hear from you guys! :)
