March 20, 2012 (San Diego)--Sarka-Jonae Miller's debut novel set in San Diego achieved what few self-published books accomplish: a spot on a best seller list. Miller's novel, Between Boyfriends, appeared on three Amazon best seller lists last month, including #9 for humorous fiction, #11 for humor ebooks and #54 for women's fiction.

To celebrate, Miller is gifting 22 copies of the Kindle version of her book that she will personalize through Authorgraph.com. The Kindle book is readable on any computer, tablet or smartphone using a free app. Winners will be selected on March 22, and also receive a download of Taylor Swift's hit song “22.”

Miller says that the song lyrics remind her of the way her character, Jan Weston, feels when she turns 22 in the second half of the novel. Swift's lyrics tell the story of a young woman without a boyfriend who wants to “just keep dancing like we're 22.” Miller's character is recently single, and part of her journey to happiness involves hanging out with her friends and going dancing in the Gaslamp District. Weston, like Taylor Swift, is between boyfriends, and determined to enjoy every minute of it. She is also dealing with adjusting to life without her parents' financial support, a consequence of dropping out of San Diego State University to instead pursue a career in massage therapy. She struggles to connect with friends, shed a defensive shell and get over her relationship woes.

To enter the giveaway, simply visit Miller's website or Between Boyfriends blog. The giveaway is run by Rafflecopter.com, a third-party site that randomly selects winners. People can enter daily.
