The books for the latest winners are heading east. Congratulations to Sue B. in Rockville, MD, who won Chris Grabenstein's Whack A Mole. The autographed copies of Louise Penny's A Fatal Grace are going to Elsie M. in Windsor Locks, CT and Janel G. in Freeland, MI. Thanks for entering the contests!
This week, I have a special treat for you. I recently reviewed Prime Time by
Hank Phillippi Ryan, at http://lesasbookcritiques.blogspot.com/2007/08/prime-time.html. This intriquing mystery features Charlotte "Charlie" McNally, Boston's TV 3 investigative reporter. Face Time, the next book in the Charlie McNally series, is due out in October.
Hank Phillippi Ryan, the author, informs me that Prime Time is not available at the moment on Amazon. So, she sent me eleven autographed copies, just for winners in the latest contest here. If you win, you'll have the chance to own an autographed copy of the first Charlie McNally mystery.
Since this is a slightly different contest, with eleven copies available, I'm asking you to take one additional step for me. Along with your name and address, please tell me where you heard about this contest. Did you read about it here, on my blog? Did you learn about it from Cozy Library, DorothyL, ARM, Crimespace, a sweepstakes site, or someplace else?
It's very simple to enter. If you'd like to win, 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 Prime Time. Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end at 6 pm PT on Thursday, Sept. 6. Jim will draw the winners, and the books will go out in the mail on Friday. Good luck!
