Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Jeffrey M. Siger's Murder in Mykonos will go to Diana O. from San Francisco, CA. And, the autographed ARC of Betty Webb's Desert Lost stays right here in Arizona, going to Ann B. in Prescott. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.
I recently recommended Gutshot Straight, Lou Berney's terrific debut novel. And, it was recommended on the Today Show last Saturday. I have an autographed copy of this story of two con artists on the run. Do yourself a favor, and take a chance on winning this special debut.
Or you could win an ARC of Lenny Bartuli's Death by the Book. Jack Susko's life is quiet as owner of a secondhand bookstore, until Hammond Kasprowicz, a wealthy businessman, offers him a nice sum to hunt for copies of the works of an obscure poet. Jack doesn't care what he does with them, until he burns the books, and other things disappear. It's a "wisecracking debut."
Do you want to win Gutshot Straight or Death by the Book? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries for each. 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 "Gutshot Straight" or Win "Death by the Book." Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end Thursday, Feb. 11 at 6 p.m. MT. 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!
