Guest blog -- Eva Hudson -- Win her book!

Title: Win a free ebook from a prize-winning author

Getting older has a lot going for it. But one of the negatives is feeling a little under-represented in the media and downright transparent on the street. Recently, with movies like Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Hope Springs and Quartet, older people are finally getting starring roles on the big screen, but there can still sometimes be a general feeling of insignificance in everyday life.
The Senior Moment
When the transparent thing first happened to me - I seemed to be able to pass through crowds of people without being noticed - after my initial shock, I thought, what a great idea for a story! What if someone used their invisibility as a force not for evil exactly, but for perhaps less than strictly legal activities. I could already see the TV movie on Showtime. Right away I knew it had to be a mystery, with a little romance thrown in for good measure.
The only problem was I'd never written a screenplay for television, film or anything else. But I had written a novel. So my vision for the movie (starring Judi Dench or Brenda Blethyn or Helen Mirren - take your pick!) became a mystery novel destined for Amazon and a Kindle near you.
The novel is called "The Senior Moment" and is currently available on Amazon here:
And thanks to June, who has allowed me this guest post slot on her blog, I can now offer a FREE ebook (for Kindle, Nook or other e-reader) to five lucky readers. All you have to do is email me with the subject line "Free ebook" and I will draw five winners from the hat and email the ebook file to you in the format of your choice.

I know that invisible feeling. Can be a blow to the ego yet sometimes convenient.
