April Giveaway: Okay, So Look

I've drawn the winner for March's giveaway, so it is time to move on to April....

This month, I'm back to giving away a book published by the company I run (Annorlunda Books). I'll be giving away two free copies of Okay, So Look, Micah Edwards' humorous retelling of the book of Genesis.

Guest Post: Eight BookTubers You Need to Subscribe to

Today I have a guest post from Dane Cobain, who introduced his book No Rest for the Wicked to us about a year ago. Today's post isn't an introduction to a book. Instead it is an introduction to BookTube, which is something I've been meaning to explore! 

Book Introduction: Gnarled Bones and Other Stories

I have another book introduction for you this week! Tam May introduces her new collection of short stories.

Book Introduction: HEY DOORMAN VIII: True Tales of an Uncommon Bouncer in Los Angeles

Today's Book Introduction post introduces the fourth book in the Hey Doorman series. I like to read series in order, so I have the first book in the series in my "to read" folder on my Kindle. However, the fourth book is the one that's just come out. Here's the intro:

This month, I'm giving away TWO copies of Love and Other Happy Endings, the anthology I put together of classic short love stories.

Reading for The Resistance

I initially intended to write a somewhat light-hearted, if still seriously intended, Taster Flight of short ebooks to read to shore you up to resist the harmful actions of the new administration in the White House. But then, those actions got even more ominous. Friday's executive order on immigration was useless in increasing our safety, needlessly cruel in its extent, and sloppy in its implementation. News that White House political strategist is going to be on the National Security Council is simply breathtaking. It is unprecedented, and for good reason.

January Giveaway: The Lilies of Dawn

I just drew the winner for December's giveaway and notified the winner. So now it is time to post January's giveaway.

This month, I'll be giving away TWO copies of The Lilies of Dawn, Vanessa Fogg's beautiful fantasy coming-of-age novelette.

Book Introduction: Collected Christmas Horror Shorts

I have a short book intro for you today. I don't read horror, but I assume some of you do, so I always offer a book intro post for anyone who contacts me offering a review copy of a horror book. (Actually, there is a standing offer of a book intro post for anyone who has written a short ebook or a collection of short stories!)

Anyway, today Kevin J. Kennedy introduces us to a book in which he has a short story:

December Giveaway: Amazon Gift Card

I was so excited by the response to last month's giveaway that I decided to giveaway multiple copies of Unspotted. I've drawn the winners and notified them, so now it is time to post the new giveaway for December.

This month, I will be giving away a $6 Amazon gift card. I picked the value because most short ebooks are $2.99, so a $6 gift card will let the winner pick two new short ebooks to try.
