Help Make The Purple Heart a movie! #Giveaway

Hi Everyone, I’m Christie A.C. Gucker and let me just say I am honored to be appearing on this blog!
So I was originally a Fan Fiction writer in the Twilight genre some years back, under the name RobstenCuteness. I wrote a one-shot for Fandom for Tsunami and had the pleasure of rewriting it to a full-blown book, which was published in 2013. This book is presently…WAIT WAIT… let me make you wait for it! LOL

Just let me say that as an author, it’s strange to have a favorite book, much like a parent saying they favor one child more than another, but TPH is my baby. I love this story. So here’s a little bit about the book…

When does hiding the truth become an outright lie? As an Army psychologist, Sydney Porter has heard her share of horror stories. The battle-scarred, down-trodden, and guilt-ridden have come to her office, seeking her help. When a highly decorated soldier is referred to her, she feels confident she can help heal his wounds. The chemistry between herself and Sergeant Aiden Thane is instantaneous. Sparks ignite and against her friend's advice, she opens both her home and her heart. Torn between a voice of reason and her undeniable feelings, Sydney begins to question just what is hiding behind her lover's decorated uniform. What secrets are hidden behind his Purple Heart? And does she really want to know?

Now with this book, I tried to educate a new demographic as well as teach them to see the signs of PTSD. I teamed with military organizations all over the United States so that they could be listed in the book as places families could go to get help. I try to educate my readers on things that are important to me. Did I mention this book has a massive plot twist? LOL
Now this is NOT A NEW RELEASE… BUT here’s the deal (yes this is what you’ve been “waiting for”) The Purple Heart is presently in Hollywood with three different producers for a read. Yes I know – I’m so excited! But being the marketing peep that I am, I am trying to create some buzz to get the attention of those producers; to show them the public wants this book made into said movie.

 And this is where you all come in, and in the process of helping me you could win a signed copy of The Purple Heart… Just take part in the rafflecopter below and support my Thunderclap initiative and also help me spread the word! 

Thank you all SO much for your support!!! <3

Christie A. C. Gucker lives in NJ with her husband, two daughters and a menagerie of pets. Being a mother is one of the greatest joys of her life. She has worked in the advertising industry for over 20 years as a degreed artist, but also works in the fine arts, especially sculpting out of stone or snapping photographs. Christie is also a singer and musician, and can be found singing on a few CDs.

After the death of her father, Christie searched for something to fill her desire to make a mark in this world. Her love of the arts and creativity allowed her to search for a new medium, which she found with a pen instead of a brush. Being an avid reader her whole life, and with her family cheering her on, she decided to take her shot, and began writing.

Christie is fascinated by the supernatural and sharks, and studies both avidly. You'll be sure to find something spooky lurking somewhere in her stories. Her greatest joy is sitting on a beach with her family while surf fishing, flying kites or building sandcastles with her girls.

Christie is an Amazon Best selling Romance author.
