Mystery-Thriller Giveaway

What would you do if your child was abducted, brutalized and left for dead?

That’s the question at the heart of CounterPunch, a new novella by Patrice Williams Marks. CounterPunch book cover shows an African-American female with a shadowy figuring in the background.


This book really packs a punch, too. It’s told primarily from the point-of-view of determined mother Everest, a woman who’s been through too much already. When her teenage daughter Mo is attacked, she’s ready to take matters into her own hands to ensure Mo is the rapist’s final victim.

My jaw really did drop open when I read the final lines. That ending is a doozie!

I had the privilege of being on Marks’ launch team, which meant I got to read CounterPunch shortly before its release. You can read my reviews at Amazon and Goodreads.

Now, Ms. Marks is giving me another opportunity — a chance to share this book with ten friends or followers. I have ten iTunes codes for a free download of CounterPunch. That means the winners will have to have an iTunes account. We’re also asking that, once you read it, you share your honest opinion of the book by adding your rating and review to the book’s iTunes page, or on Amazon, Goodreads, or your own blog.

It’s really easy to enter.

1. Leave a comment on this post telling me why you would like to read CounterPunch.

2. Go to Twitter, follow me, and retweet the following post (requires a free Twitter account):

3. Follow me on Twitter and tweet the link to this blog post and giveaway.

That’s it. Three ways to enter and win. Limit 3 entries per person. I’ll pick ten winners at random on Saturday, April 27, sometime after 7:00 a.m. central time. Make sure you leave your email address when you fill out the form to comment here. If you’re following me on Twitter, I’ll contact winners by private message.

About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have two cats and a husband.
