Frank Deford's BLISS, REMEMBERED on the Today Show, and a giveaway!
Thanks, TODAY, for having Frank Deford on for such a wonderful segment. (Every time we watch this video, we STILL laugh at the Jackie Collins comparison). BLISS, REMEMBERED was featured as one of Today's "Hot Summer Reads," and this segment was put together beautifully with photos and video from the 1936 Olympics--the backdrop of this wonderful novel.
Not quite as funny as the Jackie Collins comparison, but the Associated Press asked if Bliss, Remembered had been ghostwritten by Nicholas Sparks. While we don't quite see the comparison, it's true that Deford has penned a beautiful love story and (as Lauer pointed out) gotten inside the mind of a fascinating female character.
And don't forget to tune into NPR's Weekend Edition on Saturday for a wonderful (and long!) interview with Deford.
Finally, what you've all been waiting for... GIVEAWAY! Leave us a Tweet (@overlookpress), Facebook comment (friend us here!) or comment about why YOU want to read Bliss, Remembered. The Olympic history? The love story? Longtime Deford fan? We'll pick three winners at random from all of the participants.
Thanks, and happy reading!
