Winners and a Legal Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. The autographed first edition of J.A. Jance's Betrayal of Trust will go to Connie H. from Sherman, TX. Sue F. from Crosslake, MN will receive Dana Stabenow's Whisper to the Blood. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.

Legal thrillers anyone? I have two novels featuring lawyers to give away this week. I have an autographed first edition of Robert Dugoni's latest book, Murder One. When David Sloane reconnected with Barclay Reid, opposing counsel in his most prominent case, he never expected he'd be defending her against a charge of murder. It's Sloane's first criminal case. Is he up to the job of defending the woman he loves?

If you never got around to reading Michael Connelly's The Lincoln Lawyer, here's your chance to win a copy. It's the legal thriller that introduced Mickey Haller, the lawyer who operates out of Lincoln Town Cars. And, his defense of a rich boy arrested for assault isn't the easy case he anticipated. Instead, Haller find himself taking a deadly risk.

Which book would you like to win? You can enter to win both books, but I need separate entries. Email me at  The subject lines should read, either "Win Murder One" or "Win The Lincoln Lawyer".  Include your name and mailing address in the body of the email.  Entries only from the U.S., please.

The contest will close Thursday, Aug. 4 at 6 PM PT when I'll draw the winners using a random number generator.  The books will go out in the mail on Friday.  Good luck!

Anything by Michael Connelly catches my attention, so I read The Lincoln Lawyer long ago. I've read everything Bob Dugoni has written except Murder One, so I'm looking forward to it. Would be nice to win a copy. I've also enjoyed his marvelous presentations more than once at PNWA. He's a gifted teacher, as well as a fine writer. Liz M.

I haven't heard Bob as a writing teacher, Liz, but he did a program at my library, and I've heard him at Poisoned Pen. You're right. He does a terrific presentation.

He comes across in a workshop as a regular guy, giving others the feeling that if they just work extra hard, they, too, can write bestselling novels. His specific advice is clearly presented and he doesn't pretend that writing is easy. He takes his craft seriously. He's especially kind to newbies because he remembers how it was to be one. Liz M.
