FREE STUFF Giveaway: Running From The Devil

In addition to my passion for running, I have an addiction to reading.  There is nothing as satisfying as hanging out in my favorite comfy chair after a long run as a way to relax and let my mind play in another world.   When I received a note about previewing Jamie Freveletti's novel, Running From the Devil - let's just say I didn't hesitate to sign up for the offer.  

It has all the things a running/reading addict wants:  it is written by a runner and the main character is Runningfromthedevil also a runner.  There are just not enough books out there that fulfill those two dimensions.   In this novel, a plane is hijacked and crash-lands outside Bogotá, Colombia.  Emma Caldridge, a biochemist for a cosmetics company who is on a covert personal mission, is thrown from the wreckage. Shaken but unhurt, she watches as guerrillas take the rest of the surviving passengers hostage.  An elite marathon runner, Emma silently trails the guerrillas and their captives, using her athletic prowess and scientific knowledge to stay alive.  (For more about the book from Jamie, check out her video on YouTube.)

I love a good thriller and wasn't disappointed.   I sat down after the last tuck in of the evening and didn't stop reading until I was at the back cover.  I couldn't stop!  Who needs sleep when you have a great book to read?!?!  But don't just take my word for it, IndieBound (Independent BookSellers) have made it there notable pick for May or check out other reviews.

Jamiefreveletti So imagine my delight when Jamie Freveletti was available for a quick chat and interview.   I caught up with her last week to find out more about her running, her writing, and advice to other running writers.   Take this podcast with you on your next run to hear more about her and the book.  (You can also follow her on Twitter at http://www.tiwtter.com/jamiefreveletti.)

She also balances being a mom with her other running and writing pursuits which made a perfect giveaway for this week's theme, Salute to Running Moms.   She has provided four copies of her book (which goes on sale Tuesday, May 5th) to giveaway.     To be eligible, just drop by the forum and finish any of this week's thoughts:

Right now, I'm longing for the melting sun & exhausting heat. But, I'm sure I'll change my mind in a few weeks and I'll be wishing for the ice cold air & killer winds I wished away a few weeks ago.
