This Is Me--2024 A to Z Theme

My A to Z Themes in the past have covered a range of topics and for 2024 the theme is a personal retrospective that I call "I Coulda Been" which is in reference to my job and career arc over my lifetime. I'll be looking at all sorts of occupations that I have done or could have done. Maybe you've done some of these too!

Altercation--the New Release from Tamara Hart Heiner: A Blog Tour Hijack Stop

The Author Tour:
       Tamara Hart Heiner
      Tamara Hart Heiner was last featured here on 
Tossing It Out about a year and a half ago while on her blog 
tour for her novel Perilous.  The 
success of that book has led to 
the recently released sequel 
called Altercation

         Once again Tamara is making the blog tour
rounds to promote Altercation.   And she's got a contest to go celebrate her tour.  Tamara offers more information below.   Visit Tamara's blog Chasing Dreams for more book, tour, and contest information.

 The Book:

 Altercation  : The FBI promises Jacinta Rivera and her friends that they are safe. Jaci wants desperately to believe them but weeks of hiding from their kidnapper, alias "The Hand", have left her wary. Hidden from the public eye in an FBI safe house, Jaci must reconcile both the mysterious disappearance of her father and the murder of her best friend.

 A betrayal lands Jaci back in the grasp of The Hand, shattering her ability to trust and leaving her to wonder if she will ever piece together her broken life.

Altercation  paperback $15.95  on Amazon: 

  The Contest:

Prizes: EVERY DAY I will randomly select one person who made a comment on
that day's blog. The winner will then get to decide if they would like an
ebook copy of PERILOUS or ALTERCATION.  There's just one catch: there must
be AT LEAST ten comments on that day for me to do the giveaway.

But if that's not enough, leaving a comment also gets you entered into the
PRIZE DRAWINGS. This won't be random; it's cumulative. Every comment you
leave counts as 1 point. If you are a follower on my blog, you get 1
point. Every time you tweet or share on Facebook about the tour, it's one
point. I'll even add it up for you; just include me in on the tweet
@tamaraheiner or on Facebook @tamarahartheiner (unless you don't trust my math,
 and then feel free to tally it up and send it to me).

THIRD PRIZE: 50-page critique of something of your choice (if you're not a writer, a $5 gift card)
SECOND PRIZE: lot of five YA books
FIRST PRIZE: $20 gift card to
