Donna Everhart (donnaeverhart) UPDATED - My week hosting ended July 20, and winners have already been picked. See FAREWELL and WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

At the end of my week hosting American Historic Novels, I will choose several lucky readers to receive finished copies of THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE, THE ROAD TO BITTERSWEET and ***THE FORGIVING KIND. I have trade paperbacks, library binding (hardcovers) and audio versions of my published books.

***I am waiting on Advance Reader Copies (ARCs) of THE FORGIVING KIND (due in a few weeks) so the winner will need to wait (right along with me!) on receiving their book, but I hope it will be worth it for them! As a winner of this book, you will be among one of the earliest readers, getting a sneak peek WAY in advance of when it hits the shelves. (Jan. 2019)

How to win books? For each daily post, I will share which book I'm giving away and how to win.

TODAY'S POST is for a chance to win a copy of THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE, and we're going to play Two Truths and a Lie.

In THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE, my eleven year old narrator has become an astute liar, a coping mechanism used to protect herself, and at times to protect her mama. Eventually, this habitual behavior plays a major role in enabling a heart wrenching event to occur to Dixie.

I've always loved two truths and a lie. I've seen it played on social media recently, and thought, given Dixie Dupree's lying, it would be fun to play here.

I am going to share two truths, and one lie. Guess which two are true, and which one is a lie. Out of this participation, ONE WINNER will be chosen at the end of my hosting week, as mentioned above.

Here are the two truths, and one lie. Which one is a lie?

I ran a marathon on a broken leg
I once found a body on the beach
I went skydiving and my parachute didn't open but thank goodness the alternate did.

I will check in periodically today to see who's playing along and who gets it right! I'll share the two truths and the lie in tomorrow's post.

Dyana | 189 comments You found a body on the beach is a lie. But easily could be true. My husband and dirt bike buddies found a body in Sumter, SC, while riding. Or do you think I'm lying about that? LOL!

Ha - no telling if it's true or not! I'd say it's true. :)

It was true! I had two stress fx on the one leg, the cracks were halfway through - and I didn't know it. (somehow) I wore a boot for 12 weeks when I finally got that "strange bone lump" checked out. ;)

Hi Colleen - actually my week hosting on AHN ended on July 20th, and the winners were announced then. But, I love to do giveaways and will have more in the upcoming months as I begin to promote my new book. Follow me on social media so you can see when I do one.
