Enter to Win our Easter Giveaway

Yancey Williams’ latest novel, Rome & Joliet, opens with one Satchel Xavier Gilespie (that’s with one L) out traipsing around in the northeast Georgia woods with his new girlfriend. She’s nineteen years his junior. It’s hardly a nature walk. Hardly, either, some silly, introspective or transcendental commune with Mother Nature herself. And, it’s certainly not even another pig squealing happenstance with a bunch of good old boys from Dickey-land’s Deliverance. Oh, no. This is serious stuff.

Take a wild guess: What do you think Satchel and his girlfriend are doing in the woods? Five of you who respond will win a copy of Rome & Joliet plus a $25 gift card.
