A Gift for You by Patty Blount

Dear Readers,

As we close out another year and celebrate the holidays with our friends and family, I thought about something I could give you, readers who love books as I do, to thank you for reading my work.

I just received copies of the brand new audio verison of SOME BOYS.



I'll give away 2 of these CDs to a random reader who leaves a comment below. Tell me how you find the right gift for the people on your list. Do you just hand over a gift card or do you seek out the perfect gift?

I'll choose a winner on New Year's Eve, December 31st.

I've become quite a fan of audio books since my day job commute became two hours a day. They keep me sane. They keep me awestruck at just how transformative a good story can be.They keep me inspired to keep writing.

I love my family and treasure my time with my children and husband. But I love my quiet time in the car with my audio books. I am so ridiculously happy that SOME BOYS and also THE WAY IT HURTS are now available in this format, I had to share.

Have a merry, happy, healthy, safe, and above all, peaceful holiday season.

  2. I'm not at all a Christmas person, so for many people we get gifts for, I defer to my wife and am the money person. There are exceptions. For example, the 4th grade teacher at our local school desperately needs laptops for her classroom. My wife and I both donated, but I came up with a crazy way to get her another one. I've been scrounging losing instant lottery tickets from roadsides and stores as they can be entered online to get points. I just reached the number of points so the teacher will get an extra laptop next month. That's about as satisfying as any Christmas present I've ever given.

  3. Patty, I agree with Cordia: GREAT COVER!

    I don't listen to audio books (too easily distracted!), so DON'T pick me (my gift to everyone else!), but try to find the perfect gift. Mostly!

  4. This is so exciting--I voraciously read audiobooks and having one of my own is on my bucket list. I'm going to have to check these out for sure!!!!
