Titanic Giveaway Hop: Enter to Win "The Killing Sea" by Richard Lewis!

Titanic Giveaway Hop
April 8th to 14th

Featuring Books with
Tragic Disasters & Epic Love Stories


Welcome to the Titanic Giveaway Hop! Every blog participating in this event is featuring a book with a tragic disaster or epic love story. For my giveaway, I am offering a novel that takes place during the tsunami of 2004 in Indonesia.

The Killing Sea: A Novel About the Tsunami That Stunned the World
By Richard Lewis


Ruslan slipped away from the café and the curious onlookers. He began to run, not knowing exactly why, but instinct making him head away from the sea....

And in the distance, along the seafront of Ujung Karang, screams rose from a hundred, a thousand, mouths.

Aceh, Indonesia. December 2004. Ruslan, an Indonesian boy, and Sarah, an American girl, are brought together in the aftermath of the devastating tsunami. Ruslan is searching for his missing father, while Sarah is trying to get medical treatment for her sick brother. Together they travel through the destruction, barely believing all that they see.

The Killing Sea is a high-stakes survival story that puts a human face on a terrible tragedy.

About the Author: Richard Lewis, who lives in Indonesia, was there during the tsunami and worked as a relief worker in Aceh in the days and weeks following it. This novel is based on his firsthand experiences.

Note: Cover differs from the one shown above. I purchased this book from my local library’s bookstore, so the book is in slightly used but excellent condition. This is a HARDCOVER book!

  2. We lived right on a creek bank when I was younger, so we experienced many floods...living in Ohio, we also experienced blizzards.

  3. I have never experienced a natural disaster besides lots of snow and blizzards. My husband survived the 1974 Xenia tornado, he says he remembers the news being on with the warning, him looking out side and see the two tornados and then nothing more until the next day. He still gets very antsy during bad storms.

  4. I live in Norman outside of Oklahoma city when the May 3 tornado hit OKD, moore and it was horrible something I don't want to repeat. As a Child Dad was in the Navy and we had a severe earthquake that damaged the military buildings in Adak and it really messed up the commisary which back then shipping was not daily and the commissary ship had come in two days before for stocking and most all things in glass bottles, etc was not buyable. That was a mess.. had to drink powdered milk, ugh...lol

  10. There was a blizzard of 2001 in Buffalo. It was so bad I had to stay at my school because our bus got stuck on the same street as our school. My dad's car got stuck and had to walk all the way home from work. My Mom had to stay at her work overnight, too.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. I have not been caught in the middle of a natural disaster, but on the outskirts of an earthquake and a tsunami. Of course, blizzards in MI are normal. Thanks for joining the hop!

  12. Living in Michigan, we don't have too many natural disasters that we can't handle. A few years ago, we have a blizzard that dropped 2 feet of snow on us overnight, but it was all cleaned up by the next afternoon. In 1996, there was a storm that came through our area with straight line winds in excess of 70 MPH that took down a lot of trees and knocked out power to most of the county for a few days.

  13. I've witnessed hurricanes and many more blizzards.

  27. We experienced a pretty strong earthquake in the bay area. I also have been flooded out of my home in the middle of the night. It wasn't by nature though. A city main pipe broke and our lot sat lower and the water (thousands of gallons) filled our home and cars. And many years ago, I was in an apartment fire. THAT was scary. I am Kathleen on the RC. Thank you for this giveaway! =)
