New giveaway! Enter for a chance to win Bridge to a Distant Star by Carolyn Williford

Sorry about the delay for the contest this week, folks. There was a snafu in the schedule. Back on track now...

For a chance to enter the drawing to win this book simply post a comment that answers this question... Do you like reading books that have more than one story in them, or do you prefer them separate? Again, combined installations in one book, or separate volumes in a series? And why do you prefer the stories that way? I'll pick a winner using the Randomizer program on Sunday. Best wishes to you.

Bridge to a Distant Star: A NovelAbout the book:

It All Comes Tumbling Down

As a storm rages in the night, unwary drivers venture onto Tampa Bay’s most renowned bridge. No one sees the danger ahead. No one notices the jagged gap hidden by the darkness and rain. Yet when the bridge collapses vehicles careen into the churning waters of the bay below.

In that one catastrophic moment, three powerful stories converge: a family ravaged by their child’s heartbreaking news, a marriage threatened by its own facade, and a college student burdened by self doubt. As each story unfolds, the characters move steadily closer to that fateful moment on the bridge. And while each character searches for grace, the storms in their lives loom as large as the storm that awaits them above the bay.

When these characters intersect in Carolyn Williford’s gripping and moving volume of three novellas, they also collide with the transforming truth of Christ: Deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow me.

My thoughts:

I haven't read this book so I can't give an opinion. Sorry.

Actually, I like them both ways. Books with more than one story in them works great when you don't have a lot of time to read. You finish a story and then you can put it down for awhile if need be. I also like the series with separate volumes. It keeps the excitement going waiting for the next book to be released. Some times if it is too long before releases one kind of forgets and needs maybe to re-read the previous book.

I love to read anything! My preference would have to be one storyline simply because the books would tend to be longer. But I also have several novellas and anthologies that I enjoy, especially for quick and easy reading. I am not picky as long as there is a good story! Thanks for the giveaway.
