Monday Giveaway: Barbara Ashford & Jim Butcher

Barbara Ashford's Spellcast Cover

5 of 5 Stars

Happy Moon’s Day, Everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start. And to make it even greater, today’s giveaways include a book I picked up by chance, and fell in love with, and another of the earlier books of the Dresden Files series. To win a free download of either of these books, simply be the first to email me after 3:00 Eastern Standard Time, at mmeara@cfl.rr.com , and ask for the book you want. That’s it. No forms to fill out, no trick questions to answer, no gimmicks. Just email me and ask!

Book #1: Barbara Ashford’s delightful Spellcast, a cleverly titled novel about a summer theater troupe, led by someone just a wee bit different than you might expect, and the spell that pulls in a passing woman, and never lets her go. It’s beautifully written and cleverly imagined, and the backdrop of the theater was an unusual touch that worked to perfection. Read my review here.

Book #2: Jim Butcher’s Summer Knight, the fourth book in the Dresden Files series. I’m working my way right through the series, offering those who have never started on it a chance to win some of the older books for free. Hop on this! You know you’ve been meaning to read this series forever! 🙂

Musing on Anthologies

Quote #8 – Jim Butcher

“Holy shit,” I breathed. “Hellhounds.”
“Harry,” Michael said sternly. “You know I hate it when you swear.”
“You’re right. Sorry. Holy shit,” I breathed, “heckhounds.”

My Favorite Cover Art

Seanan McGuire's One Salt Sea Cover

I don’t know about you, but I purely LOVE cover art.  It can make all the difference in the world, when the artist gets it right.  And getting it right must surely be tricky. The cover needs to catch the eye, so the book stands out  from all the other books on the shelf.  It should also give you a sense of what the book is about.  Capture the mood.   Display a reasonable portrait of the main character, as described by the book’s author.  Possibly add some little hints of surprises that might be in store for the reader.  But most of all, for me, it should be drop dead gorgeous.

My favorite cover artist, hands down, is Read more…

Dresden Files News

For all you Harry Dresden fans out there who are anxiously awaiting publication of  Jim Butcher’s next Dresden Files book (like ME!), just wanted to give an update.  According to a report dated August 7, Penguin books has still not confirmed a release date for “Cold Days.”  Is it just me, or does it seem like Read more…

Quote #6 – Jim Butcher

“Paranoid? Probably. But just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean there isn’t an invisible demon about to eat your face.”
Jim Butcher, Storm Front (The Dresden Files, Book 1)
