Jami Deise, future pop star...plus a book giveaway

Most of you might know Jami Deise as one of our review associates. What you might not know is that she is also an author!

A baseball mom from 1999-2017, Jami Deise wrote her first novel, KEEPING SCORE, about crazy travel ball parents, in 2013. Her second novel, THE TIES THAT BLEED, is about a vampire assassin for the FBI, although she personally has little experience slaying vampires. Her latest book, HOUSE DIVIDED, which comes out November 8th, is based on her years in politics in Washington, D.C. Lucky for you, she has TWO e-book copies to give away!

Jami currently lives (and sells real estate) in St. Pete Beach, Florida, with her conservative husband Tom and their dog Lady. Their son is a White House intern during the fall 2017 semester. You can find out more about Jami at her blogFacebook, and Twitter. If you'd like to sign up for her newsletter, e-mail her at JDeise1002 at gmail dot com. Jami is here today to kick off our final theme of 2017...A Night on the Town!


Synopsis:
HOUSE DIVIDED is the story of working mom Erin Murphy, whose life seems just fine in October 2014. Although she works for Democrats while her husband Jack is a spokesman for Republicans, at home they’re in sync. Their jobs stay at the office. Their children -- 13-year-old animal-nut Jessica and 8-year-old Batman-obsessed Michael – come first. And her career is just as important as his. But on Election Day, everything changes. Suddenly, Erin is out of a job … and Jack is hired to be the new star of The Right Choice TV network! As Erin searches frantically for her next position, Jack begins to practice what he preaches… can their family survive?

We are celebrating A Night on the Town here at Chick Lit Central this month. Erin is not one for big nights out. In fact, when she’s invited to a party at the home of a rich Republican, she spends most of it alone in the basement watching Saturday Night Live. (It is a great basement, however. And she did load up on desserts beforehand.)

fellow author Megs Lashley
As for me, I also tend to be a homebody, but there’s one thing that can drag me out of the house—the promise of karaoke! If there’s a microphone and a stage, get me there. I like ABBA and Cher and just about anything that came out in the 1970s. In fact, I like karaoke so much, I bought my own machine, so now big nights out are also nights in.

My go-to karaoke songs:
"Mamma Mia," ABBA
"Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves," Cher
"Fernando," ABBA
"Half-Breed," Cher
"Take a Chance on Me," ABBA
"Waterloo," ABBA
"Fernando," ABBA
"Dancing Queen," ABBA
"Oops, I Did It Again," Britney Spears
"Total Eclipse of the Heart," Bonnie Tyler

Thanks to Jami for getting all these songs in our heads and for sharing her book with our readers.

Thank you for the chance. Sounds like an awesome book.

I would never sing in public, not even karaoke. I got laughed at one time when I tried singing in school and haven't done it since then. But if I could sing, I think I would pick something no one would ever expect, maybe some rock music.
