Allison Winn Scotch: The One That I Want
But one sweltering afternoon at the local fair, everything changes. Tilly wanders into a fortune teller's tent and meets an old childhood friend, who offers her more than just a reading. "I'm giving you the gift of clarity," her friend says. "It's what I always thought you needed." And soon enough, Tilly starts seeing things: her alcoholic father relapsing, staggering out of a bar with his car keys in hand; her husband uprooting their happy, stable life, a packed U-Haul in their driveway. And even more disturbing, these visions start coming true. Suddenly Tilly's perfect life, so meticulously mapped out, seems to be crumbling around her. And as she furiously races to keep up with - and hopefully change - her destiny, she faces the question: Which life does she want? The one she's carefully nursed for decades, or the one she never considered possible?
I'm giving away two copies of Allison's book! Just respond here to the following questions and I'll pick two winners in a few days.
What if you could see into the future? Would you want to know what fate has in store?
And if you get a chance, do stop by Allison's website (http://www.allisonwinn.com/ask-allison/) and check out the cool contest she's hosting in conjunction with her literary agent, Elizabeth Weed. I think it will interest all aspiring writers since Elizabeth has generously agreed to accept submissions and read all of them as part of Allison's contest! Good luck!
