The Bohlsengroup.com author publicity services has made available to Magic City Morning Star a free copy of Thomas J. Hynes book titled: "It Wasn't Like Nothing: One Marine's Adventure in Vietnam."

You can read the publicity material for this book in Book Basket 29 or check either the lybrary.com website or the Amazon website.

If you would like to win this free book, all you have to do is show us how well you write by writing a book review of something that you have recently read and giving us permission to publish it. Full competition details at the bottom of this page, but summarized they are:

Your review should be 400 words or more and accompanied by a photo of the book cover.

You must provide a statement that the review is your own original (non-plagiarized) wording and that you give permission for it to be published.

Quoting from publicity material and the book is permissible but should compliment your review - not be a substitute for it.

Not only will the winner of the competition receive the free book, but he/she will be invited to write their own review of Thomas J. Hynes's book "It Wasn't Like Nothing: One Marine's Adventure in Vietnam."

Address your questions and/or reviews to:
R.P. BenDedek at rpbendedek@hotmail.com
And please put the word BOOK REVIEW COMPETITION in the subject line

I would like to thank the Bohlsen Group and the Author for this offer. You never know, Magic City Morning Star might soon have an additional regular book reviewer.
