Winners and first April contests
Congratulations to the winners of this week's contest. There were fifty-nine entries. Trish C. from Copley, OH won Giles Blunt's By the Time You Read This. Shannon J. of Waterloo, IA is the winner of the autographed copy of Deborah Donnelly's Bride and Doom. The books will be mailed tomorrow.
For the first contest in April, I have two ARCs to offer winners. One is Richard North Patterson's latest, Exile. The other is a traditional English mystery, Village Affairs by Cassandra Chan.
If you'd like to win one of these two books, email me at Email me!. If that link doesn't work for you, the email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your subject line should read Win...whichever title you want. Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end at 6 pm Pacific Time next Friday, April 6th. Jim will draw the winners, and the books will go out in the mail on Saturday. Good luck!

It's an honor to be asked to review books, and I'm grateful to all the publishers, publicists, and authors who send me books. Thank you. Reviews will appear on my blog if I've had a chance to read, and finish, the book. If I do not finish a book, I won't review it, and I will not respond to emails asking when, or if, I'll be reviewing a book.
My reviews are only my opinion, and do not reflect the views of the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library.
I will not review self-published books, and, at the present time, do not accept books in e-book format.
My Oct. 19, 2009 blog provides full disclosure that I only receive review copies of books, with no other compensation. All review copies are marked as such. If there any any questions, please feel free to contact me.
