Book giveaway! (You heard me — a free book.) The contest starts NOW!

Kevin is giving away a signed copy of his book, Parts Unknown. All you have to do is leave a comment and you’re in the running. I left mine 🙂

WHAT THE HELL

I’m giving away a copy of Parts Unknown this week. It’s a hardback, and I’ll inscribe it to the winner too.

Folks, this is a $10 value (see sidebar), and if you don’t win you can always cough up a tenner and get one for yourself!

Taking a page from the Accidental Cootchie Mama’s manual, (yes, I won the Mystery Hole T-shirt!), I’m going to pick a name randomly from the commenters to this post. I want at least 10 names in the pool, so I’ll keep this going till I reach that target. If I don’t hit 10 in a reasonable time, I’ll open it up to Twitter people who are scrounging for giveaways, and nobody wants that to happen. So tell your friends to come over and comment, or reblog this, or shout it from the hilltops.

Be the first in your neighborhood to read this fine…

I will overlook a lot for that elusive plot that will submerse me in another time and place, leaving behind the troubles of this world.

I’m willing to take on any genre, although I’m not fond of horror. Even then it depends on the voice of the writer and the plot line.  It should be a dance between me and the author. I want to be treated with respect and given their finest product.

Yet, I’m finding more often in the Indie world it’s about the writer’s ego and less about my enjoyment. I’m left to fend for myself.  I flounder in poor grammar, sentences that make no sense, wandering plots and…
