March 2015


After the success of last year's "trust fall," we've decided to ask again: How much do you trust Fiction Addiction? Will you take another trust fall with us?

I have fallen in love with another debut novel that I'm afraid not enough people will find on the shelf. It is publishing in mid-May 2015 for $17.99. I know that many of you will love it as well, but again I'm afraid that the title/cover will turn you off. So, what I want to know is whether you'll again agree to pre-order this book from us, sight unseen, just based on our love for it. We will again give you a full money-back guarantee if you read it but don't love it as much as we have. You can find more information about this year's trust fall here.

To take part in this trust fall challenge, pre-order your book online or call the store at 864-675-0540 with your payment information. We dare you. :)
