JordanContests4 Comments

UPDATE: We have two winners: Richard Belson and Kimberly Golden Malgrem! Check back tomorrow to win two copies of the hilarious and poignant Peace Corps memoir, Dodging Machetes, by Will Lutwick.

Welcome to Day 2 of the February Countdown to Forged in Grace‘s Publication Book Giveaway! Two winners have a chance to win a copy of Sharisse Coulter’s Rock My World.

Question 1: Name the book upon which the movie by the same name, starring John Cusack as a lovable but dysfunctional indie music store owner, is based, and its author. 

Question 2: Jane Smiley’s A Thousand Acres is a contemporary version of which of Shakespeare’s plays?

Today we spotlight the magnificent Sharisse Coulter, who is already several weeks into A Novel Music Tour–in which she and her husband, indie musician Lee Coulter, are touring the states with their toddler son, his music, and her novel–Rock My World.

ROCK MY WORLD

Jenna Jax-Anders hit rock bottom in high school.  Or so she thought.  From rock star heiress to knocked-up has been, she turned it all around, marrying the punk rock baby daddy love of her life.  The perfect Hollywood fairytale.  Until the day she walked in on him kissing her best friend.

 As she struggles to find herself and redefine the world around her, she faces the challenges of raising her over-achieving teenage daughter, the heartbreak of losing her best friend (backstabbing aside), and emerging from the shadows of two famous last names to find her own identity. Oh, there’s also the tiny issue of her husband’s record label, backed by an anonymous mogul  whose morally ambiguous creative direction may ruin them all.
Rock My World
But she doesn’t know about that yet.
About Sharisse Coulter:
Sharisse Coulter finished a novel.  Halle-freakin-lullah!  Oh right, third person.  Back to it.  It started with a smidge of college in Paris (not Texas), a dash in Australia and, voila!  A master’s degree in Anthropology framed and placed lovingly on a shelf, never to be dusted off again.  Instead, she took the clear path to success, marrying a musician, becoming his manager and touring the country playing gigs, taking photos, and making music videos.  Finally, she had a son (and subsequent identity crisis), which thankfully fueled the completion of her first novel (soon to be released) ROCK MY WORLD.  Now at work on her second and third novels, she’s en route on a five month 55 city national music tour with her husband Lee Coulter, while perfecting the art of Lego and enjoying her addiction to reading novels on her iPhone.  It’s a wonderful life for an insatiable wanderluster.
