Congratulations to the winners of Ann Parker's autographed Silver Rush books. I'll pass your names on to Ann, and she'll be sending the books out. Silver Lies will go to David B. from Valley Stream, NY. Leaden Skies goes to Michelle St.J from Brockton, MA. Thank you, Ann, for providing the books!
This week, I'm offering two books with English characters. The Baker Street Letters is Michael Robertson's debut novel. Two brothers lease legal offices on Baker Street in London. They are required to answer letters that arrive at 221b Baker Street, addressed to Sherlock Holmes. Everything is fine, until one of the brothers decides to help out a young woman who sent a letter years earlier from LA when her father disappeared. Now, it's a mad chase around LA, with one brother a murder suspect, and the other just trying to find him.
I also have an ARC of Awakening, S.J. Bolton's terrific new thriller. But, don't try to win this book if you can't read about snakes! Clara Benning, a wildlife veterinarian in a small English village, receives an emergency call from a neighborhood who finds a snake in her baby's crib. There seems to be an invasion of snakes in the village, something that reminds older villagers of secrets from fifty years earlier.
Do you want to win a fun caper, The Baker Street Letters, or a terrific thriller, Awakening? You can enter to win both, but I need two separate entries. If you'd like to win one, 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 either Win "Baker Street" or Win "Awakening". Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end Thursday, July 30 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 on Friday. Good luck!
