Giveaway: Margarita Wednesdays

June 10, 2014

Margarita Wednesdays

Deborah Rodriguez, the author of Kabul Beauty School, has a new book being released today!  This memoir, Margarita Wednesdays: Making a New Life by the Mexican Sea is a follow-up to Kabul Beauty School but it stands on it’s own.  I’m pleased to say that, thanks to Wiley Saicheck, I have copies of this book to give to two lucky readers.

About the book:

Irreverent, insightful, and blatantly honest, Deborah takes us along on her inspiring journey of self-discovery and renewal after she is forced to flee Afghanistan in 2007. She first lands in California, where she feels like a misfit teetering on the brink of sanity. Where was that fearless redhead who stared danger in the face back in Kabul?

After being advised to commune with glowworms and sit in contemplation for one year, Rodriguez finally packs her life and her cat into her Mini Cooper and moves to a seaside town in Mexico. Despite having no plan, no friends, and no Spanish, a determined Rodriguez soon finds herself swept up in a world where the music never stops and a new life can begin. Her adventures and misadventures among the expats and locals help lead the way to new love, new family, and a new sense of herself.
In the magic of Mexico, she finds the hairdresser within, and builds the life she never knew was possible—a life on her own terms.

About the author:

In addition to writing, Deborah is a hairdresser and motivational speaker. She also owned the Kabul Coffee House which inspired her to write her first novel, The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul, which went on to become an international bestseller. She is the founder of Oasis Rescue, a nonprofit organization that provides help to women in troubled, post conflict, and economically depressed areas, providing supplies and skills to women who aspire to become more financially independent through hairdressing. Deborah currently owns and operates a beauty salon and spa in Mexico.

Two lucky winners will receive a copy of MARGARITA WEDNESDAYS.  To enter to win this great book, simply fill out the entry form.  Contest is open to those with a US or Canadian address only– one entry per person, please.  I will use random.org to determine the winner.  Contest ends at midnight EST Tuesday, June 17, 2014.    Comments are welcome (and appreciated) but will not get you an entry in the contest.

    I find if amazing that she is a hairdresser, too! I wish I could read memoir and listen to audio! I lack some kind of gene or something! Sigh!

    I already have this on my wishlist, but haven’t bought it yet so I am excited to enter your giveaway. Just sounds really good to me, even though I haven’t picked up the first book yet. If I enjoy this one, I certainly will check out any other books by her. Thanks for the chance.
