Giveaway Wednesday: Color Me Grey by JC Phelps

FIRST: an announcement for last week's giveaway -- LB Gschwandtner's, The Naked Gardener. (drum roll . . .)

And the winners are: Janel and buddyT!!!! YAY!!! I have emails for both, so will contact you to arrange for shipment of your prize. It's a LOVELY piece of women's fiction that I'm sure you will enjoy.

NOW ANNOUNCING THIS WEEK'S GIVEAWAY: One signed copy of Color Me Grey, by JC Phelps.

Meet Alexis Stanton, a 5' 4" petite young woman with a yen for adventure. She grew up as a tomboy wishing she could have all the adventures boys could have. She has since decided that being a boy instead of a girl has its advantages, but being a woman is much better. Raised in a family with money, she was able to pick and choose her education. She had been schooled in everything from being a lady to courses with Special Forces instructors. Her desire for adventure and her boredom with her current employment and a strange 'HELP WANTED' ad causes her to quit. She finds that job she could "just die for"... and it looks like she just might!

Here's what Misty Baker at has to say about this new novel on the scene:

"I have always loved books where female leads are thrust into, what is stereotypically, a man’s position, and this little ditty is no exception. J.C. Phelps did a wonderful job of weaving suspense, intrigue, and lust, resulting in what was a very pleasurable, and solid read. Each character had their own unique qualities and the use of “code names” while developing each was an engaging way to keep the reader guessing as to who they “really” were. The plot, however, is where Phelps’ writing really shined. As a reader the push and pull of a story is what keeps you reading. “Where is this going?” “I know something big is about to happen… but what is it?” This more than anything is what made “Color Me Grey” so exciting, you could always feel something bubbling just under the surface… even in the most sedated moments of monologue."

Sounds good, doesn't it?

SO HOW DO YOU WIN A COPY? LEAVE A COMMENT HERE! It's as simple as that. And check back next Wednesday to see if you won, as well as find out the next great giveaway. :-)

Yay! I can't wait to read The Naked Gardener. :)

This new book sounds great too. There aren't many main characters who are almost as short as I am, unless you drift into middle grade books, LOL!

Poor little rich girl? Sounds intriguing! I grew up a partial tomboy, (if there's such a thing) obviously due to the horrible influence of my brother (or maybe the other way around) He and I fought a lot when we were kids. And by the word 'fight', I really mean punch-you-in-the-cheek-and-and-pound-you-in-the-guts kind of fight... Sounds bloody, isn't it? But fortunately, there's not much harm the two tiny kids can do to each other. This is backed up by the fact that I still have all my organs and face intact. :)
Ok, return to the topic. Thanks for the fabulous giveaway! You can reach me at

Your description of "Color Me Grey" makes me feel I gotta have this book. As a kid,I always felt that boys had it better than girls and I didn't want to be a "lady," which sounded boring and stifling. I'd like to be convinced that being a woman is "where it's at." I hope I win this contest. I love learning new things and having my beliefs turned upside down. I especially like exciting stories.
