As mentioned yesterday, I’ve got a giveaway for you all. Thanks to the awesome folks at Tor I’ve got two copies of Norman Spinrad’s new novel, The People’s Police, that means two winners.

The giveaway will run from today until next Sunday the 19th at midnight central time and will be open to entries from the United States and Canada.

Standard rules apply: you’ll need to be following this blog to enter, the winners will be selected using a random number generator, and you’ll need to answer a question for your entry here.

So, question time readers, The People’s Police deals with the issues of those in charge caring more about the interests of the richest among us than the people at large. How do you react when it seems like the deck’s been stacked against you and how do you try and make it better?

Coming May 1, 2015 – Saving Marilee by Annette K. Larsen

Kindle-Cover-1

Saving Marilee by Annette K. Larsen

Marriage wasn’t bliss—not for Marilee. Instead of finding contentment with the handsome son of a sovereign duke, she found betrayal and neglect. And fear. A fear that finally lifts when her husband dies, freeing her from his domineering hand. But freedom alone can’t give her peace, and she must battle to regain her love for life, rebuild her happiness, and reclaim the ability to trust. When her charming neighbor intrudes on her quiet life, offering his friendship (and a dog, of all things), she must determine whether his interest is genuine, whether he is a friend or foe, and whether he deserves the fragile bit of trust she has managed to scrape together.

AnnetteAuthor Annette K. Larsen
I was born in Utah, part of a crazy, fun family of nine. I grew up in Flagstaff, AZ and St. Louis, MO before striking out on my own college adventure in Virginia. I decided to try my hand at writing novels after I was married and living in Idaho. I write clean romance because it’s my favorite genre, but often difficult to find.

I have Charlotte Brontë to thank for the courage to write novels. After being bombarded with assigned reading about women who justified abandoning either their families or their principles in the name of love, I had the great fortune of reading Jane Eyre. And that was it: finally, a heroine who understood that being moral and making the right choice was hard, and sometimes it hurt, but it was still worth it. After rereading it several years later, I realized that if I wanted more books to exist with the kinds of heroines I admired, then I might as well write a few myself. My books are about women who face hard choices, who face pain and rejection and often have to face the reality of sacrificing what they want for what is right. The consequences are often difficult or unpleasant, but in the end, doing what’s right will always be worth it.

I believe there is no substitute for good writing or good chocolate. Fortunately, one often leads to the other.

Firebrand Giveaway

This one’s going to be a bit interesting in that the book has been out for a couple of years already, but it’s just now coming to the US.  So, you guys know what that means, it’s time for a giveaway or Gillian Philip’s Firebrand.

Now, this is a book that’s been compared favorably to The Hunger Games, but the blurb puts me more in mind of something more high fantasy.  It’s the end of the sixteenth century and the veil is fading between the mortal world and the land of the Sithe.  Not all on the Sithe’s side think that it should be repaired.  Enter our protagonists, half-wild Seth and his older brother Conal who has been exiled to the mortal world for an argument with the Queen.  Now they find themselves the targets of a witch-hunt and it’s up to Seth to figure a way out of danger.

I’m excited for this one.  Because of that, and because Tor is awesome, I’m hosting a giveaway for one copy of Firebrand.  As per usual, this is only going to be open to readers in the United States and you’ll need to follow the blog to be eligible to win.  Just post a comment about the book or, because of the timeline for it, something about fantasy novel settings.

Giveaway ends Friday the Twenty-second, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Last to Die Giveaway

So after over a month of life eating my spare time, between back to school sales at work and moving back to college, all it takes to get me back into the swing of things is a blue moon and a really awesome opportunity for a book giveaway.  Easy, right?

I’ve got five copies of Tess Gerritsen’s newest Rizzoli and Isles novel, Last to Die, up for grabs.   All you have to do is follow the blog and post in the comments telling me something about why you want to win.  You can even get a bonus entry if you want to follow me on Twitter @Tymp3st, but that isn’t a requirement for entry.

The giveaway will run from today until next Friday at midnight central standard time.  This giveaway will be for the United States only.

Best of luck every one and good reading.
