Win a Copy of The Good Father
Guess what arrived today? That’s right—my author’s copies of The Good Father! My copies came a little late this year and I was getting nervous. I had to flip through the book to be sure all the pages were there, along with the discussion questions and the interview with me about the book. Everything is there, along with this little doll on the cover. You can’t buy the book until April 24th (although it can be preordered, of course), so how about I give a couple of these early copies away? Just leave a comment, either here or on the related Facebook post, telling me why you’d like to have a copy of The Good Father, and I’ll randomly select two winners (anywhere in the world!) from all commenters on Wednesday night, 11pm, EST. Good luck!
Well, I can’t say that I’ve read all of your books but I’m working on it, diligently. I’ve heard great things about this book and I can’t wait to read it. Thank you for the chance to win copy.
I lived in Cary, NC for almost 10 years. I had to leave a year ago and I miss NC with all my heart. Two things I discovered after I left, your books and alpacas. I love reading books that talk about the Outer Banks ( my favorite place in the world), you always take me there and that brings me comfort and joy. The same with my alpacas, they give me peace and lower my blood pressure. I just got 2 more alpacas and the only thing missing is your new book, The Good Father, which by the way, they were not going to buy at my local library. I gave them a piece of my mind and they ordered it!!!
I think you should pick me because I am a full time stay at home Mommy and I NEED your new book to relax and escape with at night! I love love love your writing. My husband has his golf and I have my books and I don’t have any new ones to read so please pick me!
I cannot wait for this to come out! I have read almost every book you’ve written and even turned a bunch of my friends onto your book! This would be perfect to read to occupy me the end of my third trimester!
I think you should pick me because I’m currently in a bad book rut and need something good to stimulate my brain. I’ve read nearly everything all of my good authors have written (including you) and so I sit here anxiously waiting for the next good book by my short list of favorite authors.
I love the books of yours that I’ve read, but there are still a few that I haven’t read. And an early copy….well, that would really be cool to read one that nobody else is reading yet right then. Yes, pull my name, I would really appreciate that! 🙂
I love your books! Please choose me. This sounds like a great book!
I read and very much enjoy all of your books. Once I have finished with them I give them to my mother who also loves your work. I am looking forward to reading “The Good Father” soon!
I’ve read several of your books and have thoroughly enjoyed them. The synopsis of THE GOOD FATHER sounds really intriguing and I look forward to reading it. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy.
How exciting to actually have the book in your hand!! Eeeek! Love it!
I can’t say that i deserve this more than anyone else, because i know you have a lot of loving and faithful fans! And that just makes me so so happy 🙂 to know that other people get the same joy out of reading your books as i do.
I actually read The Good Father through NetGalley and reviewed on my blog Darkreaders a few weeks ago. What a great story! I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but you definitely don’t want to miss out on this novel!
Anyways i always tend to review books and then go out and buy them the day they come out or oreorder if i can. Unfortunately real life has taken a toll (not quite like the mc in TGF, thank goodness!) So reviewing becomes a priority along with RL … buying books that ive already read but LOVE get put on the back burner 🙁 also… the books on Netgalley they delete after so many days which stinks but i understand why they have to do that.
Anyways, thank you Diane for writing such an impeccable and inspiring book! I loved the suspense that was added in TGF & the little girl just tugs at anyone’s heartstrings. Wishing you success and love on the release of your newest novel!
~a loyal fan
I was a total Daddy’s girl and this title makes me curious about the book! I LOVE this cover!
I love to read and I am so thankful to have the ability to do so. Your books grab my attention and I would love to have a copy now. Hope you pick me.
I have read most of your books and everytime a new book comes out, I’m the first person in line to buy it!!! I can’t get enough of your writing style and no one elses realy can compare!! Can’t wait to read The Good Father!!!! Hope I win!!!
I can not wait for this book to be available! I love all of your complex, multi-layered stories. The first time my five year old read to me was looking over my shoulder while I was reading The Bay at Midnight, so that is now my favorite! I am ready for your next amazing story to share pieces with him again since we both love your descriptions of the coast!
I love love love love reading your books. The way you write, it makes me feel as if I know the characters. They’re real to me and I get clear pictures of what they look like and who they are in my mind. I would love to win a a copy of your latest book before it goes to stores because I feel as if this newest book of yours will be a hit. Instead of a woman being a single parent, it’s a single father raising a child. It shows that women and men are equals. From reading a description, it looks as if this book will make you laugh, cry and be able to read it over and over again. I’d be happy to win this book. 🙂
I have read some of your books and look forward to reading more. The ones I have read so far were excellent and I would love to get a copy for my birthday (which is today). Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy.
Diane I would love a chance to win a copy of this book. I love all your books. I can’t wait to read it… Thanks
Well first of all, you are mine and my best friend’s FAVORITE author. We are always excited when we finish a DC book, as we call it, so we can dish about it. If one of us is reading a book the other hasn’t read yet, we HAVE to keep the other one posted on whats going on and where we are in the book. So, see if I won this book, I would sooooo have bragging rights that I WON it from the incredible DC herself and that’s just plain cool! 😉
I am so excited for The Good Father! I would love a copy of the book from you because I’m graduating with my Masters degree soon and once I’m done I plan to read, read, read!!! I haven’t had any time to do so while working on my degree and there is no better way to celebrate being done with school than with a book straight from one of my favorite authors! 🙂
I would love to receive “The Good Father”. From the description of the book it sounds wonderful. Thank you for the chance.
I would love to read this book before anyone else!
I would love to read this book before anyone else. I have almost all of your books and have read the ones I have. You’ve given me some good writing tips and I’d love to read this before anyone else and also give you fed back on how good it was, before anyone else. Thank you!!
Because I sit and count the darn minutes until your books come out…then I go back, sort of obsessively, to Amazon, to see if, perhaps I’ve missed reading one…and alas…I haven’t…so, here I wait ; )
I’d love to be one of the first to read your new book. I have absolutely loved every book of yours that I’ve read. I am currecntly reading THE LIES WE TOLD.
I would love to have a copy of The Good Father. I love all your books and have been waiting with bated breath till it comes out. You write with a flare that when I read your books it is like being right there. Not may authors have that talent. Thanks Diane for your fabulous books, PLEASE keep it up.
I’ve read some of your “old” books and some new ones and loved them all & I’m looking forward to The Good Father!
This is perfect! I’ve been wanting to drop you a note and tell you about my dad. He picked up one of the books that you had signed for my grandma and called me when he finished to tell me how much he enjoyed it. I told him I would gather up the ones I have on my bookshelf and bring them over and he said that would be good because he has a problem with getting your books at the library. I asked him what the problem was and he said all of your books are on the bottom shelf and he’s going to say something to the librarian because he’s convinced if your books were on a shelf that was closer to eye level, even more people would be able to find them and read them. I mentioned that they’re in alphabetical order, but he thinks you should have a shelf of your own. I’d love to have a special copy of one of your books to give him. (I’ll let you know if you get your own shelf at our library. ;)) -Kimmy
Diane, I know that we have chatted about the advanced copy of The Good Father. It would mean the world to me to get a copy from you. I can not tell you how happy I am that I stumbled onto Before the Storm, that book (even though it was the sequel, as you told me) hooked me onto you as a top pick on my list of favorite authors. So winning a copy from you would just be amazing and make my day, or it would be a great 10yr wedding anniversary present for me, my hubby doesn’t need anything. 🙂
Well I can honestly say that I have read every one so far. I even felt a pang of disappointment when I came to the end of your Kiss River trilogy…. maybe another sequel is due on the cards?!!!
Keep it up DIane!!
Oh wow Diane! How exciting for you to finally receive your own author copies! It must be amazing to open them up knowing you created a wonderful story that many people will enjoy reading. I know it will be because I am seriously addicted to your books since discovering The Midwives Confession in September last year & I am steadily working through your booklist! Once I start one of your books I demolish them in a couple of days. I am almost running out of your books to read so don’t think I can wait until 1st May for the release of The Good Father in Australia. I relate so well to your books because most have newborns in them & I am a midwife. Then I was blown away when CeeCee’s fugitive name is the same as my sister’s, Coryne Bailey (slightly different spelling)! I could really picture Cory’s birth from your description….I would absolutely LOVE to win a copy of The Good Father from you so I don’t have to wait even longer to get a copy & a print copy at that! Although I do love my e-reader, not so much when the battery dies just before I have finished a book however, I really love the look, feel & smell of a new book! I think the cover will be different over here too, the little girl with the angel wings is very cute though! Please choose me to receive a copy!! Love from your biggest fan in Australia, Lisa 😉
Dear Diane, This book just sounds like the kind o f book I like to read. Would love to win a copy and of course, would be glad to review the book for you—-good or bad—-what I like and dont like about the book!!!
Happy writing and much more success with this book—-The Good Father. Love the cover.
Oh my goodness I just checked the release date is 1st June in Australia, I seriously can’t wait that long!
I have a girl that is at the same age and as cute as this little beauty in the cover :)) I will be honored if I receive this gift from you. I know this book will help me to choose the right way in educating my child :)) Thanks beforehand and best regards 🙂
i love to read and love your books. is there anything else to say????? IT HAS TO BE GOOD!!!!!!
D – is for Diving into your books
I – is for being able to Imagine the lives of your characters
A – is for the Author and the Amazing imagination that you have been blessed with
N – is for the New books that you write
E – is for the Excitement of opening the page and cracking the spine!
Can’t wait to read the new book!
I would love to win a copy of your book because I have loved all that I have read so far. Your books brought me and my grandmother closer together, giving us something to chat about and have coffee. I very rarely spent time with her as just thw two of us, until we disocvered a passion for your books. Now, we can spend hours chatting over coffee about your books and what we thought (always positive, of course!). I’ve also got exams coming up so am up to my ears in revision right now, so I would love to have a copy of your book to relax with on my breaks!
I’d love a copy of The Good Father as currently working my way through all your books since I first came across you whilst on holiday in Florida a couple of years ago. Just finished reading Brass Ring which has just been re-released in the UK and will be putting a review on my blog later today.
Just finished ‘keeper of the light’- amazing! Read all your books in paperback that are available in uk and dont have a kindle- i know sob sob! Would love this as had to resort to buying a horrible murder book. Do you have any idea if kiss river will ever be published again, the new editions are 70 pounds on amazon and ive been stung by buying used copies before-yeuck they were minging!
Have a nice day x
Kiss River and the third in the series, Her Mother’s Shadow, will both be released in the UK and AU in early and mid 2013. At least that’s the latest info I have on them. Enjoy!
I have loved all the books I have read of yours and I expect this will be no different!
Since stumbling upon ‘The Lies We Told’ in a WHSmith book chart I have read most of your books. I simply can’t put them down. I recommend you to all my friends and family and have tweeted about your books also. I would love a copy of ‘The Good Father’ to be able to recommend to people and blog about.
UUmmmmm…I am your biggest fan, so thats why i should win!!!!!
Well. I don’t win anything, but never will if I don’t try. Hehe! Of course like all of these other good people I love your books. I have them on Kindle and I’ve never read an actual book since. I think it would be lovely to do it again. Gotta love the smell of a book. And what better than to be one of yours! I’m so impatient too. I’m finding I hard to find another author as good as you. You need to write quicker Diane =P *Fingers Crossed* xx
When I moved across the pond I brought all of your books with me as they all had become friends. Yours are the only books that I buy on the day of release.as they bring me so much pleasure and I always know how many more sleeps before your new book comes out. I would love to have a copy to read in my window seat with the sun and your words warming my soul.
New read as I head to Topsail. That would be so great.
Please pick me! I read all of your books. I am rereading the 50 shades of gray series now because I have nothing else to read!
I love, love, love your books. Your writing style is very unique and the books always “grab” me from the first page. I would love to win a copy of “The Good Father”.
Hello Diana, I would love to win your new book. I’m just getting to read your work thanks to my sister that has turned me your direction it’s been awesome new reading experiment and winning your book would enhance this new found love for reading thank you for all the hard work and time you put into your books for our enjoyment
i am looking forward to reading the good father- as i look forward to all of your books- i usually pre-order them and gobble them up as soon as i receive them!
i’d LOVE to have an early copy!
Because I’m obbsessed with your writing. What else can I say?
I’m working my way through all your books – have a stash of completed paperback ones and a collection built up on my new Kindle (in fact one of the things that pushed me to buy a Kindle was that I could read your out-of-print books that way!) I’d love to add The Good Father to my ever expanding collection!
I’ve read all your books, even the reallly old ones (thanks to Half.com). I write awesome reviews, especially for my favorite authors. Reading your books and other similar books is my salvation. I have a chronic illness and I can’t get out as much as I’d like, so books keep me engaged in life. I would really love an early copy.
PS- I bought one ticket for megamillions and every number on my card was one off from the winning numbers–how ironic. At some point karma will swing my way.
I have read as many of your books as possible (thank you, public library). I would love to read this one, as I have always liked your stories and characters. Your books are thought provoking and really grab me while I’m reading.
I want to win an advanced copy of The Good Father because it would make me so happy!
Diane, I would love to have a copy of THE GOOD FATHER because I can’t live without your books! I have every single one that you have written and have read each of them at least twice, with KEEPER OF THE LIGHT marking a record 6 times. You are my all time favorite author and the only one that has their own ‘Diane Shelf’ in my home. I feel bad submitting my name when I see how many others are wanting a copy. Let me put it this way, if I don’t win I will be completely happy for those that do…and then I will be out the door on April 24 to buy my copy at Barnes And Noble (-:)
I’m just starting “KEEPER OF THE LIGHT” and have the other 2 books in the series downloaded. I’d love to add “THE GOOD FATHER” to my queue!!
I LOVE your books! I’m anxiously awaiting this one to be released and cannot wait to read it! It’s the one “event” I have for the month…waiting for it’s release! It would be fabulous to get it early!
Yay, another new book to read! I’ve read all of your books (in print) and have spent many hours trying to find the out of print harder to find books. Luckily we have several great bookstores in my area, and of course – Amazon. Thank you for being an awesome author and continuing to entertain us with new books!
Hi Diane, I would love to win a copy of your new book. I was told by a friend to read The Secret Life of Ceecee Wiles years ago and have since read all of your books. I’m a big fan and I tell lots of my friends to read your books too! You are a great author, thanks for keeping us entertained all these years 🙂
Have it preordered at my favorite bookstore, but would love to have a signed copy from you.
I would love a copy of this book because you are my favorite author and I can’t wait to read it!!
Trish, you will LOVE Diane’s KEEPER trilogy…my all time favorite book of any author is KEEPER OF THE LIGHT…have read it 6 times and will be re-reading it a 7th time soon.
Diane, have to tell you how darling your haircut is! It is a perfect style for you (-:)
I would love to win your book. I have all of your books and love them. It would be wonderful not to have to wait until release date to read it!! Thank you for all of your wonderful books!
I’m at home recuperating from Caroit Artery surgery, House bound for a while
would love to win your book. I have read all of you books have been a fan for a very
long time. Some I have read twice. The Brass Ring was the first of your books to
get me hooked.
Thanks Diane, I know your new book will be hage success.
Just because I can’t wait for your books, I discovered you about a year and a half ago, and fortunately I have just received an IPad so I was able to read all your older books on it, I try to make them last and I just can’t, I’m counting the days until the good father would be availabel and you could be sure that I’m gonna be in front of the store the morning of April 24, unless I won a copy. Thanks you for your great work
I want to know the little girl on the cover.
I am one of your biggest fans!! I have read almost all of your books… some of them twice! I think I might actually cry if I don’t win!!!!
I have read most of your books and must say enjoyed them all.
Must say I have read most of your books and have enjoyed them all.
The quicker I have the book, the quicker I can read it and reccommend it to others! (Not that I have to read it to reccommend it)
I want to read it badly I check my local library catalog several times a day to see if they have added it yet.
Oh, how exciting!!! I’ve wanted to read this book ever since you started talking about it on Facebook. Can’t wait to get a copy, either free or through Amazon. Then, I’ll share it with my mother, who is 88 years old next week. She loves all your books too!
Diane, I’d love to win this book! Like everyone else, I’ve been waiting anxiously for your newest book to come out. I introduced your books to my sisters and mother and they love them too! Hope I win one, but of course I’ll buy a copy in any case. Thanks!
By the way, your hair looks great! Love the style!
I’d love to win your book! I had to put myself on a book buying sabbatical because I have 54 unread books at home. But I want to read this one!! And I can’t wait until I finish all of the others to read this one, so it’s either this or steal one (joking)! Anyway, I’d love to be picked!!
I would love a copy of your book – I have read everyone and have enjoyed them so much. The great thing about me winning the book – is that i pass on to so many – my daughters read you – my daughter in law and my girlfriends and on and on – that is the great thing about a book – so many can share in the love of reading – – thank you for your wonderful subjects and writing that make reading so fun
Can’t wait to read this book Diane, thanks for producing ALL those wonderful books.
I would love to win your newest book because I love to read, but for the past two years I have been in nursing school and unable to read any books besides my nursing textbooks. I graduate the first week in may 2012 and would love for The Good Father to be my first book I read because I enjoy your writing and all the extraordinary characters that are involved in the story. Your book will give me the opportunity to relax and calm my mind before taking my state exam. Thanks for writing awesome books!!
I’d love to have a copy of the book early (especially if it’s signed by you!?!) April 24th isn’t too far off though and if I don’t win a copy I’ll be there the day it comes out to purchase it! Looking forward to the read 🙂
I am anxiously waiting for the release of the Good Father. Have read all of your books except two of the first ones. Love all of them. Thanks for being my friend on Facebook!
As the mom of a tween and a toddler, I would love to escape my reality and dive into one of your books….but I ALWAYS pass them on to my fellow read-aholics!!!
I have read 6 of your books and loved them all its only been 3 Mon since I started reading you but now its getting harder to find them I live in a small town so not much book store
(To be sung in the tune of ‘start spreading the news’ by Frank Sinatra)
Start spreading the news – I’m winning today!
I’m going to win a copy of it – oh yes -oh yes!
If I cant
win it here
shed a tear and then its
I can’t beat these other folks reasons for needing the copy:( You have some great fans..I feel we helped you write this book, or maybe we almost kept you from making your deadlines (Keeping you too late on twitter and facebook..:) But I do wish you luck and hope that this is your best seller yet. Okay thought about my reason why I need you to send me this early copy… I need help moving on away from my latest obsession….I need another great book to read..I need a new obsession…:)
I want to win a copy because I love all your books and can’t wait to read this one.
I’ve read 6 of your books just since January! At this rate, I’m going to run out of books to read. So I definitely need this one! 🙂
I think you should pick me because I need a stress reliever and what better way to relieve stress than to read a good book. I have read one of your books and I can’t imagine this one not being good. It sounds like my kind of book. I can’t wait to read it regardless if I win or not.
I would love the oppurtunity to win your newest book! I have been a fan of your writing for some time, and I love how your books explore family relationships as well as have a hint of mystery in them! I have been wanting to read The Good Father ever since I saw it on Goodreads!
I would love a copy of your book… enjoyed the happiness key series.
We have a winner! Or rather two winners: one from this blog page and one from the same blog post on my Facebook page. Congratulations Kim White and Amy Feld! Thank you to everyone who participated. It was fun to read your entries.
Thank you!!! I’m so excited
Congratulations Kim & Amy…So happy for both of you.
As for me, I plan on being at Barnes & Noble April 24 when the doors open (-:)

I want to thank you for including in story form the outcomes of drinking while pregnant. I produced an FASD DVD on prevention of FAS in the Bay Area, but still there is a lot of ignorance out there. Anyone who would like a copy please email me @ [email protected].
Again thank you.
You are one of my favorite authors! I can’t wait to read your newest book. It usually only takes me 2 days to read them, because they are so good I can’t put them down. Thank you for writing such wonderful books!
i had like to read this book as plot seems very engrossing ..
Love all your books, read all that my library has to offer. Would love to read youtpr latest, Good Father. Hope I win a copy. Thanks for good reading.
I have always enjoyed reading books. and one day I spotted your book the midwifes Confession it just drew me in. Just by the title I was engrossed in the book I needed to buy it. When i bought it I read it in one day and since then i have gone out and bought the rest of the books that you have written. I would love a copy of The Good Father it would be amazing to win it and to begin reading it 🙂
