Congratulations to the winners of the last contest on my blog. Blaize Clement's Even Cat Sitters Get the Blues is going home to Sarasota, FL to Sandie H. Carolyn Haines' Wishbones is going to Angie P. in South Elgin, IL. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.
This week's books have colors in the title. Dead in Red is L.L. Bartlett's latest Mike Resnick mystery. Resnick, who was mugged and beaten over the head, now has a "sixth sense" that enables him to "see" clues as to murders. When a bartender is murdered, and his cousin asks Mike to investigate, Resnick and his brother find themselves in an unfamiliar world of drag clubs.
Steve Hockensmith brings back "Old Red" and "Big Red", cowpokes who admire Sherlock Holmes, in the mystery, The Black Dove. The two brothers really shouldn't have ended up in San Francisco's Chinatown in 1893. Could their luck get any worse?
So, Red or Black? You can enter twice, once for each book. 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 "Red" or Win "Black". Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end Thursday, August 28 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!
