A UNION OF SOULS by K. D. Richardson and a Giveaway!

Today we have author K. D. Richardson with us and he's talking about his latest release A UNION OF SOULS.
K.D. Richardson is a graduate of Miami University (Ohio). He has been a writer since 1996. Mr. Richardson has written five previous books including Reflections of Pearl Harbor, Journey Across Time, The Second Season, A Different Drummer, and Spirit of the Season. In addition, Richardson has written seven screenplays covering many genres. He is also a sports photographer and columnist for The Venice Cornerstone newspaper in his home state of Ohio.

What was the inspiration behind A Union of Souls?
I started A Union of Souls after hearing the song Chicken Fried by the Zac Brown Band. The song talks about a southern man who, "...likes his steak 'chicken fried,' a cold beer on a Friday night, a pair of jeans that fit just right..." You know, the good, relaxed life. I wondered how that man got to that position in life, so I back-tracked on his life, and as I began to write the screenplay/story, things took all sorts of crazy turns.
Tell us a little bit about A Union of Souls.
If anyone remembers the screenplay Heaven Can Wait starring Warren Beatty, you will be able to relate to A Union of Souls. In this story, two men are fatally injured at nearly the same time, but the New York bookworm, Louis Sherman survives in the body of a Georgia redneck named Travis Lane. Louis, now Travis, has to clean up the rowdy lifestyle set forth by his predecesson and try to win back the love of his soon-to-be-ex-wife.
Blurb
To wipe the slate clean; what would one give for that? One man gave his life for a second chance. Louis Sherman was a New York accountant who had led a very sheltered life. Now thirty years old, obese, and lacking any real social skills, he was determined to take one last shot at having a ‘real life.’

Blue-collar Travis Lane, on the other hand, grew up in a dysfunctional Georgia home and became a wife-abusing alcoholic. He had no future. Following an accident involving these two men, Travis wakes up in the hospital with very few memories. He does, however, believe that his name is actually Louis.
