The 89th Academy Awards Ceremony – that’s the Oscars to you and me – will take place this Sunday and in celebration of this momentous occasion I am making my latest novel Blood in the Water available for FREE download all weekend!
What is the connection between Blood in the Water and the Oscars you ask?
Well, in addition to being the basis for a future Best Picture Winner, it has loads of connections!!!
First, the main character in the story is named Bob Oscarson, but he goes by the nickname Oscar.
Not enough for you?
How about this…in the story there are sharks – and as we all know Jaws (a movie about a shark) won 3 Oscars…Best Sound, Best Film Editing and Best Music. It was also nominated for Best Picture, but lost to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. (Damn you Jack Nicholson).
The Oscars will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, and Jimmy has interviewed Oprah Winfrey on his show, and Oprah once hosted a famous book club – so there’s that. (We won’t get into how she never promoted one of my books…)
Blood in the Water is a novel, and many Oscar winning movies have been based on novels.
Blood in the Water is FREE this weekend (I may have already mentioned that) and you can watch the Oscars for free as well!
As you can see – the connections are numerous (if not tenuous) – so don’t hesitate…get your FREE copy of this future Oscar winning story today! (or tomorrow, or Sunday – but not Monday, that will be too late!)
As always – thank you for reading (and I’d like to thank the academy…)
