Finally Home Release Party: Giveaway!

August 29, 2014

Alright, I think it’s about time for the giveaway! Oh boy!

I’m offering an eBook bundle of Finally Home and Two Tickets to Paradise (the anthology Krung Thep, City of Angels appeared in) to one lucky winner.

The giveaway is open until 7 pm PST tonight, August 29, 2014. At that time, I’ll randomly select one winner from the answers below, and announce at the end of the party at 8 pm PST. To be valid, though, you have to answer my question: are you more of a traveler or a tourist?

Are you like Chris, who prefers to go off the beaten path on his own and discover new treasures—though it occasionally leads to trouble? Or, are you more like Marco, who plays it safe by sticking to known areas and traveling with friends—though it sometimes means missing out on experiences? Or, are you a little of both?

Finally Home
When novice backpacker Marco and seasoned travel writer Chris parted ways in Bangkok, they thought it was the end of their summer romance. Three months later, though, a change of assignment reunites Chris and Marco, and the pair embarks on an adventure greater than ten days trekking through Thailand—forming a real relationship amid family drama, coming out fears, career woes, and personal demons.

Now available from Dreamspinner Press in eBook and Paperback!

    I’m more of a tourist I guess. I’ve always been more of a homebody and it plays a part in whether I’ll be willing to travel and for how long.

  2. Dreamer says:

    I’m a bit of both:) I live to travel and thanks to my knowledge of 5 different language, I’m able to go almost everywhere around the world. I’ve to say that I like to organize my stay but I’m open to add more places to visit when I arrive at my destination(especially if I meet someone there).

  3. Sula says:

    I am traveller, I like going to places (with my partner and or close friends) less touristy and finding fantastic places less visited. I often visit friends whilst staying abroad who can then show me what the real place/people is/are like outside of the, sometimes more costly, tourist traps.

    I was advised if I was looking for a place to eat always go the places where the locals go as the food will be better, cheaper, authentic and you get to meet the people and join in.

    Although I do go to the touristy side of things, for instance you cannot really go to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre. But I often try to travel outside of the popular seasons and I never take risks. The only problem is that I hate air travel, so a lot of my journeys are train, car, other and plane journeys are a last resort, which can be somewhat limiting to where you go if you have a time restraint on your journey.

    thank you for a chance to win an ebook bundle :D

    I’d say I was a tourist because I tend to go back to the same place over and over because I know it and the familiarity makes me feel safe. Usually I go with family or friends (again with the safety thing) but I have been known to venture forth on my own if the situation calls for it! I’m a traveller at heart though. I just need the money, the stamina and the courage to make it happen!

  5. Ardent Ereader says:

    I am probably more of a tourist in that I don’t always like to venture off the beaten path however I wish I could be more spontaneous and and just go where my mood takes me. Since I am such a planner I am rarely a spontaneous traveler. I have enjoyed your release party and I am definitely going to read Finally Home and Two Tickets to Paradise, especially since I am sure to recognize places I have been to in Thailand.

  6. Dreamer says:

    Congrats for your first release, hun. Wish you all the best and all the success you deserve! Thank you for this chance to win your book, today **fingers crossed**

  7. Trix says:

    I’m both. I like to look up new and interesting things about a place, but I tend to plan where I want to go (and once I like a place, it’s in my permanent rotation).

  8. Thanks everyone, for sharing your travel style!

    Myself, I’m a little of both. I tend to be cautious at first (and I definitely like the tourist attractions) but as I get more comfortable in a new place I get braver. There was nothing quite like the pride I felt when I navigated NYC’s subway system alone for the first time (which included unscheduled transfer) or when I took myself to a pharmacy in Bangkok alone and successfully made a purchase.

  9. Andrea M says:

    Definitely a traveler – I’m 65 and have only taken 2 trips that I would consider the tourist type but I’ve traveled a lot in my life. If a place appealed to me, I’d move there and stay for a while.

  10. Little Bear says:

    I am enjoying all your posts and have added this book to my wish list. I wish I was a bit braver when travelling and I would never take on the NY underground, far to much of an adventure. I only like going to places where the building are no higher than four floors and I much prefer open land, forests, ranges, than big cities. Country girl (or bear) through and through LOL

    I’m more of a tourist. I loved seeing the Eiffel Tower and went to the Louvre twice in five days, plus several other smaller art museums. Enjoyed Versailles too.
