Congratulations to the winners in the Winning Color Contest. Steve Hockensmith's The Black Dove will go to Gary O. in Goleta, CA. And, Dead in Red by L.L. Bartlett will go to Jackie H. in Omaha, NE. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.
Last Thursday, I had to change the ending time of the contest because I went to hear Chris Grabenstein at The Poisoned Pen. I bought this week's prizes, and had them autographed. Eventually, these could be collector's items, so you might want to win them.
Tilt-A-Whirl is the first book in the Ceepak series. It introduces John Ceepak and Danny Boyle, the Sea Haven, New Jersey cops. This book is already hard to come by, even as a paperback. And, wouldn't you like a signed copy of the paperback with its original pink cover?
Or, you could win Hell for the Holidays, a first Carroll & Graf edition of this Christopher Miller Holiday Thriller. Since Carroll & Graf are no longer in existence, it's a chance to scoop up an autographed copy of the book that takes "St. Christopher", the FBI agent, into a Thanksgiving nightmare.
So, which Chris Grabenstein book would you like to read? You can enter twice, once for each book. If you'd like to win one, 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 either Win "Tilt-A-Whirl" or Win "Hell". Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end Thursday, September 4 at 6 p.m. PT. Jim will draw the winners at that time. The winners will be notified, and the books will go out in the mail on Friday. Good luck!
