The Fine Print, in normal-sized print:

Summer, everyone knows, is for reading. Well, so are Winter, Autumn and Spring, but especially Summer.

So every week, from here through the end of August, I'm going to be giving away a book*. Some of them may be mine, some of them may be by other people. They may be just-out, or entry-points to an on-going series. It will be a totally random and whimsical choice, to keep things interesting.

How do you get in on this? Simple: you comment here on why you need something new to read. Vacation? Stuck in bed with a bad cold? Totally out of book-buying funds? Captured by aliens who insist on a new story every night or they'll eat you?

Tell me.

(you can enter every week, but only once every week. And you MUST identify yourself in your post, either via log-in or a name and contact point. I'm not going to choose anyone who doesn't identify**.)

Ready? Go.

Seventh Book: The Crow God's Girl by Patrice Sarath

Kate Mossland has accepted her new life as foster daughter to Lord Terrick ,and is engaged to be married to his son Colar.

But all is not easy in the House of Terrick. The servants distrust her, the men-at-arms disdain her, and learning how to be a great lady is harder than it looks. Every misstep brings her closer to ruin, and Kate must walk a fine line between independent teen and modest noblewoman. 

Then in a single blow Kate learns that her life is truly not her own. As Aeritan teeters on the brink of war, and promises once made are so easily broken, Lord Terrick demands that Kate submit to a new role.

But Kate is not so easily managed...


(this is not the first book in the series, but it's easy to slip into the world and pick up the action, so don't be afraid!)

*yes, a real, actual, PAPER book.
**the post will 'open' on Monday, and 'close' on Friday. Winners will be chosen over the weekend, and informed the following Monday

Because Patrice made her Mind Meld debut recently and I probably should read one of her books at some point...

Book Contest

I need something new to read because I read 3-4 books per week, and the library in my town is kind of small.


I need the book since I need to be distracted while I am waiting on the verdict about my laptop. :(

I have a story addiction and am out of money for new books. My library has a small sci/fi section, and the lack of editing I've found in free stuff for the kindle makes my teeth grind.

I'm always on the look out for new books/authors and this story already has me intrigued. If I could afford it I would spend the rest of my life reading but alas funds always seem to run short.Thank God for contests like this!

Luck (and the Oracular Number-Picker) smiled upon you! :-)

Please email me at lag-at-lauraannegilman-dot-net with your mailing adress!

The book/series sounds interesting to me, and the author's not someone whose work I'm familiar with. New authors = new sources of delight...
