Okay, I admit it, I had no idea Amazon did giveaways so I’m rather excited, and you should be too you’ve heard me rave about Laurie Boris’ work before. Now’s your chance to win ‘The Joke’s on Me’, her first book.

Now, I’ve never used one of Amazon’s giveaways before, so if you choose to play, I’d love to know your opinions about it. The giveaway ends April 14th or when all the books are won, whichever comes first.

I’ve read ‘The Jokes on Me’ and really enjoyed it, so if you’re in the US, why not give this easy competition a go?

The Baby Boomer Generation Gap

“(Special Note: The Joke’s on Me, ebook edition, will be on sale for $3 off its regular price from Friday, June 28 through Saturday, June 29)

The burgeoning genre of Baby Boomer Lit fascinates me. I love the stories authors are telling about the challenges confronting this generation as we face our mortality but still want to squeeze more out of life.

Often forgotten, however, is that technically, baby boomers represent (mostly Americans) born between 1946 and 1964. That’s a span of eighteen years, for those of you good with math or who happen to have a calculator handy. So theoretically, two generations could be contained within this one moniker: two generations with very different goals and ideals….”

I’m a Boomer too, and can identify with the expectations of both sub-generations. We expected to make the world a better place, but we also expected to have fun doing it. And despite growing up, and growing old[er], we still expect the same things.
