Spotlight on Avra’s God by Ann Lee Miller + Excerpt + Giveaway!!!

I’m still giggling after reading the first chapter from Ann Lee Miller’s latest New Adult book, Avra’s God. The excerpt ends with this bit…

“The girl had family, cookies, and legs you’d have to be in a coma not to appreciate. He bet a lot went on under those blue eyes of hers. Suddenly, he wanted to find out.”

I want to find out more too! Read the first chapter below. *points down* 😀

I’ve read her previous New Adult book The Art of My Life and I enjoyed the relatable characters and situations. And Ann’s way with realistic dialogue! Often it sounded like something my family would say. 😉 Click HERE for my review for The Art of My Life

Cornucopia of YA ~Review of Art Of My Life

What was the inspiration/motivation behind the book?

I wrote Kicking Eternity because I have struggled, like the college kids and young adults who hang out at my house with my kids, to determine which dreams to pursue. I am intrigued by the “negative” things in our lives that push us toward that daring thing we were created to do.
