“Never” Is Coming Soon

I know that title sounds rather odd, but that’s exactly what it means! If you remember my interview with J. Grace Pennington, Grace published her very first novel back in June. Now, I am very happy to announce that her second book, Never, is going to be released on November 23, just three days from now.

Travis Hamilton never expected to be a killer. One day he was studying to become a schoolteacher in the little western town of Spencervale, and the next he was sentenced to ten years hard labor in the Dead Mines outside town — from which few return alive.

Ross Hamilton is no detective. But when his brother is convicted of murder, he has no choice but to abandon his ranch and do all in his power to find out just what happened the night of the killing, and who is really responsible.

Neither brother is prepared to be stretched and tested to his limits and beyond by an adventure that is much bigger than either of them ever imagined.

But in the next few days, they will be. The only way to survive is to never compromise.

Sound intriguing? I think so!

To celebrate this occasion, a blog scavenger hunt is going to take place. From now until 11:59 CST on November 22, you can go from blog to blog to collect some Never triva and a code. At the end of this post, I’ll provide a link to the next blog, and so on and so forth. Anyone who collects all the codes and emails them to Grace at theauthor [AT] jgracepennington [DOT] com will receive two Never themed desktop wallpapers and be entered to win a signed copy of the book! How cool is that?

Before you race on to the next blog in your eagerness to get those wallpapers, here’s some trivia:

While this is Grace’s first historical fiction novel to be completed and published, four out of the eight main novels she started and abandoned when she was younger were historical fiction. The novels were about a family travelling to America from England during the Civil War, a man travelling to the Yukon to look for gold with his fiancée and a guide, a boy living with his family in the Texas Hill Country in the 1870s, and a girl whose father had died, requiring her to live with her spinster aunt.

And here’s the code you need to email along with all the other codes to Grace:


Last but not least, here’s the link to the next blog:
