Blogoversary Countdown Giveaway with Amanda Leigh!

Welcome to my Blogoversary countdown Giveaway and thank you for joining me in celebrating!

 Today Amanda Leigh is around with a giveaway for you all. She is giving away a copy of ehr book Thousands of Mornings. If you're interested, keep reading!

Can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Amanda Leigh. I’ve just finished college in the suburbs of New York at Pace University. I received a BA in English and Communications and I minored in Psychology and Creative Writing. While attending Pace I worked on the literary magazine on campus – Vox Arts and Literary Magazine. My first book, the book that I am giving away today, released in June of 2012. My second just released this summer. I’ve wanted to be an author since I was eight. I picked up the love of photography in college. Now that I’ve graduated I’m focusing more on my writing. I’m editing a romance novella right now as well as working on two other projects. I also do freelance writing/editing and will likely start an Etsy shop to sell my photography – the shop will share the name of my first book.

What is the name of the book you are giving away?
The name of the book I am giving away is Thousands of Mornings.

Can you show us the cover and the blurb?
A collection of original poetry and photography.

I say that this poetry is about everything. Life, love, loss, faith, hope, imagination, determination. Everything.

Is the book part of a series or do you plan for it to be part of a series?
I suppose that depends on how you look at it. It’s not technically a series but I have released another poetry collection – Holiday Hospital Stay Poetry Collection 2012 - and plan to release more in the future. I even have the name of my third poetry collection picked out already. =]

What made you come up with the idea for this story? (if you are giving away more than 1, you can either do this for all books you are giving away, or just choose one of them)
Well, this is a collection of poetry and photography. As for the poetry, I really just write about what inspires me at the time. The poems in this book cover a wide age range. I wrote them from age 12 to age 20. So they range from a poem about horses to a poem about the three different worlds that I live in. ;]
As for the photography I just photograph anything that catches my eye. Anything that I find beautiful. As I was putting the collection together I did my best to match up the photographs to the mood/tone/theme of the poem it would end up with. Although for all I know those match ups only make sense to me. =] 

Thanks for stopping by today Amanda :)
