Congratulations to the winners of the Dennis Lehane contest. Cassandra J. from Worth, IL will receive the autographed copy of A Drink Before the War. Mystic River will go to Leona P. of Milo, ME. The books will go out in the mail today.
This week, I'm giving away three copies of Margaret Coel's last Wind River Reservation mystery, The Girl With Braided Hair. It's a fascinating look back to the 1970s, as Attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O'Malley investigate when bones are found on the reservation. The history of the bones belongs to a violent time in history, when the militant American Indian Movement was active. The reader will be caught up, not only in a current mystery, but in a period that might not be well-remembered, a fascinating time.
If you'd like to win a copy of Coel's book, email me at Email me!. If that link doesn't work for you, the email address is: email@example.com. Your subject line should read, Win "Girl with Braided Hair". Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end Friday, Oct. 24 at 6 a.m. PT. Please notice the changed time, because I'll be attending a program again on Thursday night. 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!
