Giveaway - Incarnate by Lawrence Weill

[The following review is part of the Incarnate blog tour being organized by Tomorrow Comes Media.  For a full list of host blogs for the tour, see the tour page.  For giveaway entry and rules, see the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post.]
What should a woman do if she believes she is the mother of the second coming of Christ? This is the problem Lara Joyner faces when she comes to believe, through her visions, through the look on his face, through her cards, and through the thousands of hidden signs she sees in nature, that her son is Christ incarnate.

Incarnate
is driven by this woman’s character and readers struggle between wanting to sympathize and knowing she is deeply troubled. In the end, we discover how her delusion turns many worlds upside down, as well as how faith overpowers reason. The story follows Lara and her two sons as she pushes Dale to perform miracles and save humanity. Although obviously unable to do so, he goes through the motions to protect his little brother Louis. Told alternately from Lara’s perspective (in the present tense) and from the other principles in the story, the plot follows the trials brought on by Lara’s spiraling madness, her husband’s desperate search for his family, and the children’s bewilderment and fear.
Intrigued yet?  Incarnate, a new psychological thriller from Lawrence Weill and Blackwyrm Press, is hitting stores as we speak, and now is your chance to snag a copy for yourself—as well as some other cool swag from Blackwyrm.  But before we get into that, here’s a bit about Larry, the author.
Lawrence Weill is an author and artist in western Kentucky.  In addition to novels, he writes short fiction, non-fiction articles and books, and poetry.  His work has appeared in a wide range of local, regional, and national journals.  He and his wife live in the woods overlooking a beaver pond.  You can learn more about Lawrence at his website, www.lawrenceweill.com.


Now for the good stuff—the giveaway.  Blackwyrm is offering up a helluva prize pack for all you folks.  Up for grabs are: 

First Prize:  1 paperback copy of Incarnate by Lawrence Weill
Second Prize: 1 paperback copy of Incarnate by Lawrence Weill
Third Prize:  10 ebooks of the winner’s choice from the Blackwyrm Catalog

In addition, 10 (ten, I say!) runners-up will receive one ebook of their choice from the Blackwyrm Catalog.  So just about everyone who enters gets to take home something. 

So how do you get in on this smorgasbord of literary delights?  I’m glad you asked.  It’s the same process as usual, but with a twist.  All the normal options are still there with the addition of one option that gives a whopping +5 entries.  In Incarnate, one of the belief systems that informs the main character Lara’s actions is the belief in past lives and reincarnation.  So to earn those extra five entries in the giveaway, comment in the comment section below and tell us who you believe or wish you were in a past life, or who you’d like to come back as if you ever happened to be reincarnated.  

Sound like fun?  Then get to it!

  2. Geeeeeeez. I don't know. The book sounds kinda creepy. Intrigues me. I would love to be rich and have a life of luxury, as for a specific person? Thanks for the great giveaways on your blog.

  3. I've never really thought about what/who I would want to come back as. Although according to my Grandpa I'm going to come back as an ant because I always destroy all the ant hills in out front yard. i would probably want to come back as either a cow or a tiger in India because both are sacred animals(in Hinduism, one of the major religions in India), and are revered and never killed so i would have no fear of becoming someone's cheese burger or fur coat.

  4. I would also love to come back as a cat (a house cat of course).

  5. I would love to believe I was Leonardo Da Vinci in a past life. I only wish my brain worked as well as his did. As for reincarnation...I guess I'd want to come back as an eagle. Then I could finally experience flight without any mechanical propulsion. I've dreamt it, but to be able to really do it would be amazing.

  6. Thank you for having the giveaway. I would like to have been a healer in my past. I think I would like to be something like a healer in the future, with empathy and not caring for money, you know like the doctors, and lawyers and corporate world.
