Bouchercon Giveaway

I'm going to start kicking off my giveaways on Thursday mornings, except next week. This giveaway will actually run only until Tuesday morning, Oct. 23, and I'll start a new one early. I'm flying to Chapel Hill, North Carolina next Wednesday, so I have to end this week's contest early.

I'm giving away two books associated with the recent Bouchercon convention. Louise Penny won the Anthony Award for A Trick of the Light, the Chief Inspector Gamache novel that took him back to Three Pines. It's a story of the art world, and a world of shadow and light, a world of secrets. I have a trade paperback of that award winning mystery to give away.

Or, you could win an autographed ARC of Hank Phillippi Ryan's recent suspense novel, The Other Woman. Hank was inducted as President of Sisters in Crime at their meeting at Bouchercon so this is the perfect time to give away this book. And, of course, it's a page turner involving journalism, politics, and crime. Ryan's slogan for this book? "You can choose your sin, but you cannot choose your consequences."

Would you like to win A Trick of the Light or The Other Woman? You can enter to win both, but I'll need separate entries. Email me at Your subject line should read either "Win A Trick of the Light" or "Win The Other Woman." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please.

The contest will end, as I said, on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 5 a.m. PT. The books will go out that day.

Let me be the first to welcome you home! And, thanks for the fabulous giveaways this week!

Lesa said...

Thank you, Jane! It's good to be home, although I'm leaving again next Wednesday for business. Thank you!

I loved The Beautiful Mystery and promised myself to read more of her books. Would love to win this one.

Both are wonderful books.

Lesa said...

Harvee Lau. My mistake. I didn't include my email address in the original post.

Welcome Home! Great books for the giveaway, too.

Beth Groundwater said...

I love your blog and I love Louise Pennys and Hank Phillippi Ryan's writing. I was traveling by plane to/from Bouchercon with only carry-on luggage, so I couldn't buy any books there. I'll buy some from home, but I'll miss having the signatures. These two are on my list, but if I win them, that means I can get two more that are on my post-Bouchercon list!

And, if you win, Beth, you'll have Hank's signature. I was home for 2 weeks, with three kinds of things going on, so I was glad to fly Southwest so I could bring different outfits, and let my two bags fly free!
