Sarahlyn Bruck's movie a book giveaway

We welcome Sarahlyn Bruck to CLC today. Her debut novel, Designer You, publishes tomorrow! We had our "designs" on it since we first heard of it months ago. Sarahlyn is here to finish out movie month and has a signed paperback, bookmark, postcard, and a Designer You measuring tape/level to give away.

Sarahlyn grew up in the Bay Area, and as an adult has bounced around the country a fair bit, finally landing in Philadelphia the summer of 2007, where she lives with her husband, daughter, and their dog, Jazzy.

Although lately her energy has been focused on writing novels, some of her short fiction can be found in publications such as Flash Me Magazine, Daily Flash Anthology, and Boston Literary Magazine. She is currently working on her next book.

When Sarahlyn is not writing, she teaches writing and literature full-time at Bucks County Community College. She likes working there quite a bit and feels pretty lucky to have the opportunity to do what she does. She also coaches writers for Author Accelerator, an online program that helps authors draft, revise, and pitch their books. The added bonus? She finds working with others on their writing helps me with my own. (Adapted from Sarahlyn's website.)

Visit Sarahlyn online:

Pam and Nate were a couple who just couldn't get away from each other, sharing not only their bed, but also a successful lifestyle empire as DIY home renovators, bloggers, podcasters, and co-authors.

When Nate dies in a freak accident, Pam becomes a 44-year-old widow, at once too young and too old--too young to be thrust into widowhood and too old to rejoin the dating pool.

Now the single mother of a headstrong and grief-stricken teenager, Pam's life becomes a juggling act between dealing with her loss and learning how to parent by herself. On top of all that she also must reinvent herself or lose the empire that she and Nate had built so carefully.

It is time for Pam to seize the opportunity to step up as a mother, come out from behind Nate's shadow, and rise as the sole face of the Designer You brand, and maybe, possibly, hopefully, find love again.

As a child of the 1980's, narrowing down my favorite movies to the top five was HARD! OK, here they are:
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • The Breakfast Club
  • Back to the Future
  • The Princess Bride
  • The Karate Kid
And horror movies:
  • The Shining
  •  Poltergeist
  • A Nightmare on Elm Street
  • Night School
  • The Lost Boys (not certain it's horror, but I found it scary!).
Thanks to Sarahlyn for visiting with us and sharing her book (and swag) with our readers!

My favorite 80s movies would be Fast Times at Ridgemont High and The Breakfast Club. It's pretty much a tie between the two. I still love those kinds of movies.
