Winners and the Male of the Species

Congratulations to the winners of the latest contest. Beth Solheim's At Witt's End will go to Iasa D. from Hurst, TX. Grey Matters by Clea Simon will go to Sabin B. of Castle Rock, CO. I'll mail At Witt's End tomorrow, and Clea will send Grey Matters.

Does it get any more masculine than spy novels and Ernest Hemingway? Once a Spy is Keith Thomson's debut novel. What happens when a CIA agent develops Alzheimer's? Charlie Clark always thought his father was an appliance salesman. When he brings his father, Drummond, back to his apartment, and it's blown up, he blames his losing streak at the track. He never thought someone might be after his father. It's an exhausting, exhilarating chase once Charlie realizes his father might be the target. I have an autographed ARC to give away.

Or you could win Print the Legend by Craig McDonald. McDonald sent an autographed copy of the latest Hector Lassiter novel. On July 2, 1961, Ernest Hemingway committed suicide. Or did he? Four years later, Hemingway's oldest friend, Lassiter, and Professor Richard Paulson, show up to confront Hemingway's widow. While crime novelist Lassiter is looking for lost manuscripts, Paulson is convince Mary Hemingway killed her husband.

So, do you want to win Once a Spy or Print the Legend? 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: Your subject line should read either, Win "Once a Spy" or Win "Print the Legend." Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.

The contest will end Thursday, April 1 at 6 p.m. PT. The winners will be drawn by random number generator. The winners will be notified, and the books will go out in the mail on Friday. Good luck!
