Announcing the Eternal Sweepstakes!
Wow, what’s that?
Lisa has just finished writing ETERNAL, her first-ever historical novel, a love triangle set in prewar Rome, and we’re celebrating with brio, gusto, and other Italian words!
First, Lisa is doing a “Behind the Book: Talking ETERNAL with Lisa Scottoline” video series, in which she tells behind-the-scenes stories about ETERNAL, every Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. EST on her Facebook page. Then after each video, she will host a Facebook Live, talk about the video, and pick a winner of a prize in an ETERNAL Sweepstakes – during a live random drawing! The ETERNAL Sweepstakes starts now and ends on the book’s publication date, March 23, 2021, so Lisa will be giving away 18 prizes from November 2, 2020 until then, weekly! The prizes are awesomely Italian-themed, including a special Grand Prize! So tune in to Lisa’s Facebook page every Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. EST, get the insider’s view on ETERNAL, and see if you’re the winner that week!
