One of the greatest compliments I’ve received (and, thankfully, keep receiving) on Don’t You Forget About Me is that it isn’t “preachy.”
“While I’m a fan of Catholic fiction, I’m not always impressed by the writing. Don’t You Forget About Me is a well-written, entertaining book that actually has some substance to it. ” -Review by Jay Calvin Nelson on Amazon
“Without being preachy or in-your-face about it, Cupp compares the difficulties and heartaches of being a fallen-away Catholic with the peace and joy that comes when one humbly and trustingly puts his life in God’s loving hands.” –Review by Laura Pearl on Amazon
“Fans of Christian fiction will particularly enjoy the elements of faith that add to the richness of the story without hampering the plot.” –Review by Therese Heckenkamp on Amazon
“I found the religious elements well integrated into the story.”–Review by “ruthjoec” on Amazon
As I told Kate over at So Much To Say, So Little Time, I’m not a message writer. I just want to tell you a story. On the other hand, as I told Catholic Fiction, since I don’t go into a book with message in mind, I tend to discount the possibility that story can be used by God to share a message. So here I am, embracing message even while I embrace the people who might not want to read it otherwise.
Introducing the “One For A Friend” Don’t You Forget About Me Giveaway. Here’s how it works.
- Post a new review of Don’t You Forget About Me to Amazon between now and June 17, 2014.
- Comment below with a link to the review. In your comment, include some (vague) info about a friend or family member (no names, please) who, like Cate Whelihan, is anything but a practicing Catholic–but who just might enjoy reading Cate’s story. Example: “I know someone who thinks I’m crazy that I joined RCIA, but she loves mysteries.” “I have this friend who thinks I’m crazy for not using contraception, but she’s a sucker for romantic suspense.” Etc.
- On Wednesday, June 18, 2014, I’ll draw a commenter’s name from a hat. I’ll send that commenter one paperback copy of DYFAM, inscribed to the friend you described in your initial comment. (We’ll work out the details over email.)
Clear as mud? I’m just putting my money where my New Evangelization mouth is. Let me know below if you have any questions.
I read this book back in late 2013 but only got my review up now!
My husband’s family probably all think we’re Catholic weirdoes, but I think this book would appeal to one of his sisters because she likes to read and would appreciate the medical and pharmaceutical angles. She could probably also relate to the Catholic grade school experience.
Winner winner chicken dinner! What are the odds, right? Congrats! I’ll send you an email shortly.
