Congratulations to the winners of the Shanghai contest. Robert B. of Columbia, MO won Red Mandarin Dress by Qiu Xiaolong, and Joyce K. from LaSalle, IL won the autographed copy of The Shanghai Tunnel. The books will go in the mail tomorrow.
And, Sharon L. from West Monroe, LA was visitor number 40,000 to the blog, so I'll be contacting Sharon to allow her to pick a book.
When I met Louise Penny at the Poisoned Pen, I bought paperback copies of her earlier books and had them autographed. If you haven't started the award-winning Still Life, the first in the Three Pines mystery series, now is your chance to win a copy. That book introduces Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, and the wonderful Quebec village of Three Pines.
Or you could win A Fatal Grace , the second book that sends Gamache back to Three Pines for a bitter winter.
Would you like to win Still Life or A Fatal Grace? If you'd like to enter for both books, please send two emails. 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 Still Life or A Fatal Grace. Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end Thursday, April 3 at 6 p.m. PT. Jim will draw the winners at that time. The winners will be notified, and the books will go out in the mail the next morning. Good luck!
