Congratulations to the two winners in this week's contest for ARCs. Jill G. from Bonita, CA won Rett MacPherson's Died In the Wool. The winner of Jason Starr's Lights Out was Pat R. from Kansas City, KS. The books will be mailed tomorrow.
The next contest also features two ARCs. Christine Kling sent an autographed ARC of her latest book, Wreckers' Key, so a reader could win it. The other ARC is Evelyn David's first Sullivan Investigations Mystery, Murder Off the Books. I reviewed this fun mystery on Feb. 27th if you'd like to check out the review.
If you'd like to win one of these two books, email me at Email me!. If that link doesn't work for you, the email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your subject line should read Win...whichever title you want. Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end at 6 pm PST next Friday, March 23rd. Jim will draw the winners, and the books will go out in the mail on Saturday. Good luck!

It's an honor to be asked to review books, and I'm grateful to all the publishers, publicists, and authors who send me books. Thank you. Reviews will appear on my blog if I've had a chance to read, and finish, the book. If I do not finish a book, I won't review it, and I will not respond to emails asking when, or if, I'll be reviewing a book.
My reviews are only my opinion, and do not reflect the views of the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library.
I will not review self-published books, and, at the present time, do not accept books in e-book format.
