Spotlight and Giveaway: From the Sideline

We're pleased to feature Amy Avanzino's second novel in her "Wake-Up" series, From the Sideline (which can be read as a stand-alone)Amy has TWO e-book copies for some lucky readers!

After losing her marriage, life savings, and waistline, Autumn Kovac is terrified of being hit by more heartache. So when her only child decides to try out for the football team, the overprotective, sports-illiterate mom has a near phobic reaction. But Zachary hasn’t smiled since his father left, and she’s desperate to make him happy (and doing nothing and hoping for the best hasn’t been working). She reluctantly enters a new world of youth competitive sports, full of overzealous coaches with Vince Lombardi dreams and fanatical parents trying to achieve vicarious glory.

Unexpectedly, Autumn begins transforming within this strangely addictive new culture, finding her voice, facing her past, tackling her fears…and uncovering the secret that’s been keeping her from her son. After meeting her ideal catch, she finds herself back in the dating game and discovers some fierce competition of her own. Will Autumn make it off the sideline? Can the underdog finally win?

“Funny yet tender...witty and charming...a reminder of the things that really matter in life.”
 – Jackie Bouchard, USA Today Bestselling Author of What the Dog Ate (on Wake-Up Call)

I have never played a sport or been involved with one. The best sports memory would be that Dallas Cowboys win last night.

I'm a big University of Tennessee fan. The best year was when they went 13-0.
