I wish the contest I’m about to mention were cool in physical form as well as concept, but alas, at the moment it’s pretty ephemeral, so you’ll just have to settle for metaphorical coolness.
I hope you’re getting plenty of coolness, physical or metaphorical, in real life as well. I’ve been admiring my flowers, which are flourishing in the jungles of North Carolina. I’ve also been wondering how much this weekend’s dust storm is going to irritate me. Answer: At least somewhat. How are you faring? Has anyone gotten hit hard in the Caribbean?
And I know I’ve been emailing you a lot recently, but there’s good reason! First there was the sale on Campus Confidential. Thanks, by the way, to everyone who helped make it a success. And while the sale on the ebook is now over (although you can still pick it up for a cool $3.99 if you so desire–universal link here–or read it for free by requesting it through your local library), Google Play is still doing a 99c deal on the audiobook. Link here. I don’t know how long that deal will last, so snap it up while you can!
And now I’m participating in a cool contest, run by BookSweeps. You can enter here (entering is free) for a chance at winning a whole bunch of first-in-series books featuring women sleuths, plus a shot at an e-reader. Not only is Campus Confidential one of the books on offer, but I also entered it myself as a contestant–although if I win, I’ll probably give away my winnings to one of my readers 🙂
Whatever you’re up to this weekend, good luck in all your endeavors!
I hope you’re having a great weekend. Here in the swampy Southeast, it’s appropriately muggy. I used to have a magnificent tolerance for warm, damp weather. Not anymore. Turns out that a lot of chronic health conditions don’t care for this kind of weather.
Between that and the push to finish up two major projects this week, I had a bit of a crash yesterday, but I’m doing better-ish today. AND I finished my projects! I sent in the revised manuscript of my academic book on Chechen war literature to the publisher on Wednesday, and I finished recording the audio version of Trigger Warning yesterday. Yay! There’s still a fair amount of editing to do, but you can listen to the podcast of the first half for free on most podcasting programs.
And speaking of audiobooks, Google Play is running a discount on the audiobook of Campus Confidential right now. You can get the audiobook for just 99c here. Meanwhile, it’s the last weekend to get the ebook of Campus Confidential for 99c on all stores. Universal link here.
If you’re looking for yet more to read (and who isn’t? I know my e-reader is simply groaning under the strain!), here are a couple of interesting-looking books I stumbled across recently:
Avenging Adam has dogs! Dogs, I say, dogs! I’m already hooked. It’s free on KU.
Simon Gillard is currently giving away advance copies of The Affliction of Praha here. You may or may not know this about me, but I spent a fair amount of time studying Czech, so a Czech-themed murder mystery caught my attention right away.
Happy reading everyone, and stay safe!
