Well, as it turned out, we only had four unique commenters on the previous blog post, the one with the giveaway. So I decided to let Teddy have ALL the treats and send ALL FOUR of you a free book!

I'm currently contacting people with the contact email given. If you don't hear from me today or tomorrow (so I can get your snailmail address for mailing the book), remind me in comments--I should be back here after lunch and errands.

Congratulations! You have a cool new read ahead of you! (And a couple of free MP3 gift cards, to boot--I only have two of those, so will distribute those randomly.)

I have finally received all the author copies of my books that I ordered (and paid for), and I also have a stack of other people's books that I've managed to score here and there. It's time for a--


This time around it's my new mystery, NICE WORK. I'm giving away three free copies! (Assuming I get three or more comments, that is. *tap tap* Is this thing on?) I'll be doing this once a week for a while, for different novels.

If you'd like to win a free copy of NICE WORK, leave a comment with your contact information (this can be your e-mail in a cryptic format, such as ladiva AT gmail). Comment by next Tuesday, September 18th. You can say anything you like in the comment, as long as it's nice. Let's play nice (unlike the rest of the net, politics-infested as it is. My own MOTHER, aged 83, is in there screaming at the television and insists on staying on the news channels. I keep telling her she's only upsetting herself, but some people enjoy that.)

The winners will be chosen randomly from the commenters by my Pomeranian, Teddy. I'll label his dog treats "1," "2," "3," and so forth, and throw them on the floor. He always gets them and drags them over to his hiding place. Which order will he get them? That will determine the winners! If I only get three comments, then you'll all WIN! You're already winners, you know--in all sorts of other ways. Thanks for reading.

I'm really interested in hearing from readers. Let me know your thoughts on the new Bounty o' Books that is out there, much of it for free on e-readers. Are we better off than we were a couple of years ago, or not? LOL
