You can win a copy of AMY’S CHOICE, months before it is available for purchase, by entering the Goodreads Giveaway contest (click picture below).

Goodreads Giveaway

Goodreads is a free website for book lovers. Imagine it as a large library that you can wander through and see everyone’s bookshelves, their reviews, and their ratings. You can also post your own reviews and catalog what you have read, are currently reading, and plan to read in the future. Don’t stop there – join a discussion group, start a book club, contact an author, and even post your own writing. Signing up is simple — you just enter your name, email, and a password.

To learn more about AMY’S CHOICE, please stop by Yvonne Ventresca’s entertaining BLOG. Fun facts about the AMY’S CHOICE cover are on Yvonne’s Friday Five feature today!

AMY’S CHOICE is a companion book to the critically acclaimed CALL ME AMY, published by Luminis Books. Bullies, boy trouble, and a talented painter who lives on the island keep Amy and her new BFF busy, but will Amy end up in court and will Craig ever return from Boston? Find out in this coming-of-age novel set in a tiny fishing village on the coast of Maine, during 1973.

Here are a few review blurbs for the first book, CALL ME AMY:

“Readers will cheer her on, and her splendid team, too.” —BOOKLIST

“Amy is a reliable narrator and easily relatable.” —SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

“Strykowski lovingly captures seaside Maine.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“Well-drawn, sympathetic characters…create a pleasant, satisfying read.” —KIRKUS

“Highly recommended.” —MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

Good luck with the contest!


  1. Ashley

    Thanks for explaining how Goodreads works. I might join just to enter the contest. I liked your cover feature on the other blog, too.


    • Thanks, Ashley! You’ll love Goodreads and it’s very user friendly.


  2. I enjoy learning about what my friends read (and their reviews) on Goodreads. I’ll definitely enter your giveaway if it’s open worldwide. Congrats on the great advanced reviews, Marcia!


    • Oh, I wish it was worldwide! This will be the first time I’m in charge of sending the winning copies out myself (last year the publicist mailed them), so I wanted to start out simple. I’ll be doing one more ARC giveaway in a few months and I’ll try to make it more inclusive. Thank you, Claudine!


  3. This sounds like a great story and I love the cover. Good luck with its release. I may feature it on my blog later this year.


  4. The author’s fair sounds wonderful! I enjoyed your photos. 🙂
