Win an Autographed Copy of “Alternatives” by H. S. Contino!

 Good morning!

I hope that everyone had a great weekend. On a personal note, I celebrated my birthday on Saturday. Being an introvert and a science nerd, I celebrated by first watching a webinar hosted by The Planetary Society ( on near Earth objects (NEO’s) then going geocaching with a friend. And, of course, there was cake! These may not sound like exciting plans to my extroverted readers, but– for me– they were perfect. 🙂

Just a short post today. I’ve decided to have a book give away for my latest novel, Alternatives (available for sale through Amazon). In the past, I’ve hosted a few book giveaways through GoodReads. Unfortunately, they have since started charging authors. So, I’ll be doing this the “old school” way. To enter to win, simply comment on this blog post or send me an email. I’ll print out all of the names on slips of paper, put them in a bowl, then choose a random winner.

Pros and cons– the book giveaway would receive more attention and participants through the GoodReads webpage. And, of course, the purpose of the giveaway is to draw attention to my new book. But, since my blog gets a lot less traffic, your odds of winning will be much higher. Silver linings!


Book Giveaway Details:

I’ll be giving away 1 print copy of my novel, Alternatives. I will sign the book before shipping it. Both the book and shipping will be free. So, there is no cost to participate. 

Readers have from June 29th through July 31st, 2021 to enter the contest. To enter, either comment on this blog post or send me an email (

Winner will be chosen randomly. I’ll contact the winner the first week of August. I’ll send them a link to a “custom order”/reserved listing on my Etsy shop, Reprieve’s Corner, so they can provide their mailing address.

The book will be completely free, but I would appreciate a book review (through Amazon or GoodReads). However, this is not a requirement.


About the book:

Sci-fi meets romance in this quirky read!

Theoretically, there exists a parallel version of reality for every possible outcome of our life choices. What if you were given a glimpse into your alternative lives? What version of yourself would you see? How would it influence your future decisions?

Francis Marino’s quiet life on the Oregon coast was interrupted when two military officers arrived on her doorstep with a bizarre story and urged her to come with them. Thus began an unexpected adventure that forced her to leave her comfort zone and confront many of her beliefs about the world we live in.

As the commander of a highly classified military facility, Colonel Dominic Davis was dedicated to his job. But, after being exposed to an alien device, he is given visions of alternative realities. Dom realizes that he needs to make changes– both personal and professional.

Life on Earth hangs in the balance…


Have a great week everyone!
