Take a survey to enter a book giveaway!

**Giveaway is now closed**

"Single Mother on the Verge" by Maria Roberts (Penguin UK, 2009) will soon be released independently in the US and Canada, but the author would like to know how to make it more adaptable to this side of the ocean. Therefore, she has put together a survey. If you live in the US or Canada and take this survey by October 5th, please comment below and you could be entered to win one of TWO copies of "Single Mother on the Verge."

Check out the blog and visit Maria Roberts on Twitter.

Synopsis:
Maria is twenty-nine years old. She is a single mother and lives on a public housing development in Manchester, England. She's also a chronic day-dreamer. One day she'd like to marry a beautiful man with a huge income to look after her and Jack, her nine-year-old son.

The only problem is that her current boyfriend, Rhodri, a chickpea-loving vegan eco-warrior, has turned his back on career ladders. Neither does he believe in monogamy. And so Maria finds herself unexpectedly juggling one, two, three lovers . . .

When Damien, Jack's abusive father, who threatened more times than Maria cares to remember to kill her makes an unwelcome reappearance, she gets a wake-up call. Will Maria find a wonderful father figure for Jack by the time she turns thirty?

A surprisingly humorous memoir with heartbreaking and unexpected moments, Single Mother on the Verge is a seductive and extremely touching read.


How to win "Single Mother on the Verge": Please take the survey and post a comment telling us you did. Include your e-mail address or another way to reach you if you win.

US/Canada only. Giveaway ends October 5th at noon EST.
