2018 Books I Dig

I’ve put off posting this for two days, but there weren’t any entries for the giveaway.

Unfortunate, but I might could have planned a better time for it. And it isn’t like that’s going to stop me from trying again at the end of this year, so I’m going to try and make 2019 better than 2018.

That starts with planning things out and figuring what I can do, what needs to be postponed, and how to make a schedule of some stripe work for me.

In any case, everyone have a great rest of the week! Posts will resume next week.

Last Call

It’s the last day for entries in the 2018 Books I Dig Giveaway. Remember, entries end at midnight central time tonight.

One last time, the books up for giveaway are:

K. C. Alexander’s Necrotech: A gut punch of solid writing and a really interesting read.

Edgar Cantero’s Meddling Kids: The meeting of Lovecraftian horror and Mystery’s Inc. that hits a ton of nostalgia points.

And, of course, Seanan McGuire’s Sparrow Hill Road: A series of stories about a ghost, the Phantom Prom Date, in her own words.

All three books have been five star reads for me as well as being books that I would talk about ad infinitum if prompted. They’re also all three signed by the author.

So, if you want the chance to win one of these books, follow this blog and either hit the link up above and answer the question there or answer the question here. Dealer’s choice on that.

Question is, what’s your favorite end of the year tradition? Alternatively, what did you most enjoy reading this year?

Winners will be picked using random.com and announced tomorrow, January 1st.

I’m also only able to ship to winners in the United States.

I’ve mentioned something that I’m super excited about a few times in the past couple of weeks. This is that. See, there were a number of books this year that I really enjoyed and really want to share with you all. So, three readers are going to win one of three books that I’ve either reviewed this year or that come from a series I’ve reviewed this year.

Cool, right? Let’s make it even more fun, all three books are going to be signed by the author. So, what are the books I’ve decided excited me the most this year, the books I am so ready to share with all of you?

Well, there’s the first book in a series I talked about a bunch of times back during the Fall Into Books challenge. K. C. Alexander’s Necrotech. I still want to talk about these books anytime I’m given the chance and probably will.

And, as much as I enjoy a good cyberpunk story, let’s add a ghost story to this list. Let’s talk about a hitchhiker who’s been wondering America’s roadways since she was killed, the girl in the green silk gown. Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan McGuire, a book that left me hunting the sequel through a number of bookstores.

Then let’s follow up the ghost story with a nice Saturday morning cosmic horror story. Those kids and their dog have been waiting an awfully long time to solve that last mystery, the one that split them up and left them broken. Edgar Cantero’s Meddling Kids. This is another one that I still want to talk more about, so look forward to that.

So, rules and whatnot. How can you get your hands on one of these awesome stories?

Sometime between now and when the giveaway closes at midnight central time on December 31st, you’ll need to follow this blog and then comment below.

As to what you should comment about, let’s make it thematic. The year is coming to a close, tell me about your favorite reads of the year. And, of course, which book you want or your order of preferences on which books you want.

You’ll also need to live in the continental US and be comfortable with sending me your mailing address after winners are announced. I’ll be using random.com to choose winners for the sake of fairness and that announcement is going to come January 1st by midnight.

Good luck!
